Our annual 2-4-2 Pairs Gala was held under dry skies on 23rd/24th October and was a great success. 24 teams competed, including four from our Club. Congratulations to overall winners Mark Burgess and James Fairhall from the Victoria club.The gala was extremely well run and our thanks go to Aaron Wall for all his hard work in organising the event. Aaron's own report follows:
Thank you again to the following people - Greens: Don McMurray & Ian Prince. Kitchen: Ian & Jane Prince & Margaret Opray. Bar: Ray Wall, Iain Opray & Hylton Tuckett. All round help for two days: Dave Turner, Iain & Margaret Opray. The SBC juniors for all their work before and after play and all other local members who pitched in and helped. Everyone present for their great support of the raffles. All the spectators who came out and supported their clubs junior players – this is really great to see. But most of all a huge thankyou to the players whose competitive spirit and great attitudes made it a fantastic two days to be involved with!
We look forward to seeing you all again next year and encourage you all to take responsibility to get more of your clubs juniors to get involved not this this tournament, but as many difference junior bowls events that they can."
