New surface at Glen St

Chairman, Greens Director and few others today tested out the new green at Glen St in chilly conditions.  It rolled beautifully, despite the chill the sun was out and everyone enjoyed playing on the new surface.
The rinks are currently unmarked, but will shortly be marked with chalk until the green ‘settles in’ then lines will be marked more permanently.
We look forward to seeing the green used in pennant in the not too distant future.

Grand Final – Winter Pennant – Saturday

After an 8 week Winter Pennant Competition we have come to finals time and our 4th Side have made the big one.

Fantastic effort by all concerned.

After discussing the side with the two managers for the season the following side has been selected. It was not an easy job with selection as a couple of players missed out. The side was selected taking into account the results for the season and the rinks who played together.

For members who want to go and support this side, the game is at St Kilda Bowling Club, Fitzroy Street St Kilda.

Good luck to the team on Saturday.
