The raffle for the set of Taylor’s bowls was drawn at the Christmas Party on Sunday December 4th. The lucky winner was Ian McKay.
This year will see the Men’s Singles Club Championship Final played between Dan Mars and Culum Bennington. The game will take place this Thursday afternoon/evening starting at 5.15pm at Swinburne Avenue.
If you have the opportunity before or after practice come down and watch the game.
Good luck to both players.
Last Monday MCC Bowlers Brad Marron, Ben Winther, Dean O’Neill and Dan Mars competed in the Yarra Region Men’s Fours Semi and beat their Bundoora RSL opponents. The game time has changed to Thursday 15th Dec at 7pm and they will battle against another Bundoora RSL foursome in the Final. We encourage anyone who want to come and cheer on the boys to do so, we are sure they’ll appreciate the support.

Congratulations to Eliza Wellington who competed in and won the Yarra Region Women’s Novice Singles Title yesterday (27/11) at Rosanna Bowls Club 21-12.
The criteria for competing in the Novice Singles is that you need to have been playing bowls for less than 2 years. Eliza played against B Bannan of Ivanhoe in the Final and while there were only 2 entrants in this years competition the old saying is you need to be in it to win it.
Eliza will now continue on to play against the winners from other regional groups throughout the state. Again congratulation Eliza and good luck as you continue through.
We have been advised of the recent death of Ken Pullen, who has been very ill for the past year, before which he worked as a guide at the MCG. Ken was a member of the Bowls Section and served as a Selector a few years ago.
