Congratulations to both MCC Wednesday Night Pennant sides who won the Division 1 and 2 Grand Finals at Toorak Bowling Club last night. That makes it a clean sweep for MCC in both divisions of this competition since it commenced last season.
MCC1 defeated a strong Richmond Union side. After the opening 20 ends we held a slender lead of 3 shots overall. However, we ramped up the pressure in the second half to come home convincing winners by 12 shots. Well done to the side consisting of Randal Dimery, Dan Mars, Geoff Harding, Ron Butterworth, Daniel Dimery and Ian Smith
After finishing 3rd on the ladder, for the second year running MCC 2 triumphed over Camberwell Central who finished in top spot. At half time we held a lead of 10 shots and were able to maintain that margin and retain the trophy for another year. Congratulations go to Helen Phillips, David Brown, Dick Meadows, John Graham, Gary Eaton and George Ziller.
Although not playing in the finals, the successful Wednesday Night campaign involved several other bowlers including George Newman, Jeff Smart and Vivienne Newton-Brown.
A big thank you to the large contingent of MCC supporters who helped to steer us over the line – it made a huge difference.
