Armidale City Womens Bowling Club
Tuesday June 25, 2019 was our inaugural visit to the Bingara Bowling Club and what a great day that turned out to be.  After leaving Armidale at 7.00 am on the club bus being driven very capably by Secretary Marie, we arrived at our destination at 8.50 am and were met and welcomed by Bingara Club President, Mrs Irene Edwards and other bowlers.  A            sumptuous morning tea of scones, cakes, sandwiches and biscuits followed the very warm welcome and we were very happy that we made the journey.   After morning tea the cards were called and bowlers then made their way across the road to the two immaculate greens before the game began.  Twenty two teams attended representing clubs from Moree, Guyra, Inverell, Barraba, Delungra, Armidale and Bingara.

After the game a delicious lunch of Chinese cuisine with cake and ice cream topped off the day.  Winners of the bowls for the day were a team from Barraba, runners-up were Maureen No 3, Life member Pam O’Hara, Wendy Munro and Lorraine Bartwell played and Lucky teams were Maureen Kennedy from Inverell and Carol from Bingara.  All the three Armidale teams had wins. The day had been very enjoyable for everyone and after taking a group photo we boarded our bus and headed for home arriving at 5.30 pm.

There was a coaching clinic on Friday morning June 28, 2019 for about one hour then two social games of pennant practise was the order of the day.  Results are: J Hoenger, M Coggan, M South, M Macgregor defeated D O’Connell, I Myhill, D Fuller, M Knight;  J Carey, N Jemmeson defeated J Swanson, E Hunt.  Our pennant players now have the draw and we are looking forward to the challenge.
