Armidale City Women’s Bowling Club Notes
On Tuesday December 8, 2020 our annual North versus South games was played and of course, the division was Beardy Street, so it all depended on the direction where you lived. Unfortunately, I don’t have the score cards but congratulations to the teams playing for South who ran out the winners with two team wins even though they only won 53 shots whereas North scored 59 shots but only won one team game. Cheer up the North supporters, it’s on again next year.
Our break-up day on Friday December 11, 2020 was a wet day and no bowls were played but several games were played until it was time to go upstairs for our lunch. President Margaret welcomed everyone which included our three Patrons, Joan, Beryl and Myra and also our CEO Walter joined us. Tables were beautifully decorated with lighted candles, bon bons, white starched serviettes and a selection of bottled wines. The lunch of roast pork and all the trimmings accompanied by pavlova, fruit pudding and custard summed it all up as a wonderful lunch to end the year for the bowlers.
After lunch prize giving took place for winners of some events that were held before Covid-19 took precedence.
