On Tuesday February 27 all roads led to the top of the mountain for Guyra’s President’s day with 22 teams attending from Tenterfield, Inverell, Glen Innes, Bendemeer, Tingha, Kootingal, Walcha, Uralla, Armidale and Armidale Ex-Service’s Bowling Clubs with apologies from Bingara, Inverell RSM and Delungra Clubs. This is a wonderful testimony to the popularity of the Guyra Women’s Bowling Club. The day began with President Dot Jackson welcoming all to morning tea followed by a spider and one game of triples with 18 ends. After the game a delicious lunch of cold meats and salads complete with dessert was enjoyed by all present. The winners for the day were the District team, runners up were Kootingal and the Mystery prize was won by Tingha. Pam Westbury won the $50 note and there were many spider and lucky door winners to top off a most enjoyable day for everyone.
