Rob Fairweather Invitational Fours

Rob Fairweather Fours Bowlers

On Sunday 8th April the club hosted teams from several neighbouring clubs to participate in our longstanding invitational tournament, which was recently renamed the Rob Fairweather Invitational Fours. Once more the club excelled in its organization thanks to the efforts of numerous volunteers who ensured that the day ran smoothly. After 24 ends of highly competitive bowling the winning team turned out to be one of our own – congratulations to Sue, Norman, Bede and Wayne on their fine win.

Princes Park Shield Retained

On Saturday the popular annual fixture against fellow ‘parkers’, Princes Park, was held at Albert Park Bowls Club. The number of Albert Park participants exceeded those from Princes Park so both of our coaches and several top players were loaned to the opposition to even up the numbers. In all, nine rinks were filled with triples and fours competing over two sessions. Despite relinquishing key players the home side was able to prevail, winning 10 of 18 rinks. So the shield remains at Albert Park and we look forward to defending it at Princes Park next year.
