The popular game of scrounge is beginning to become a weekly turnout for the seasoned bowlers.

On Wednesday, the cream rose to the top as Ray Hanson displayed fine form to tally 50 points and win the rink against Russell Shawcross 47 and Phillip Cunnington on 46.

On rink two, the latest club decorated life member Tom Davis, was on song to register 47 points for a comfortable victory over Don Smith, 39.

Smith is recovering from a recent nasty fall.

Ann Lowrie delivered all her good bowls to score a healthy 46 points for a rink win against Dingee visitor Norma Thomas next best on 40 points.

The game of scrounge is played at 1.00pm on a Wednesday (weather permitting) and all bowlers and non-bowlers are welcome to attend.

Flat soled shoes are a prerequsite and bowls are available for use.

Names are to be submitted prior to 12.45pm.

The semi-final of the president’s trophy 21 up championship has been decided with Ian Johnson defeating Don Isgro in a high standard performance from both bowlers.

Trading ends kept the scores close before Johnson was able to gain a break to win through to the final where he will meet Ray Hanson.

The club will hold the annual general meeting on Monday June 3 at 8.00pm.

All are welcome to attend and discuss several important items on the agenda.

Bowling enthusiasts enjoyed some spectacular bowling at the prestigious Moama Bowling Club Geo Lynch Fours held on the weekend.

The event attracted a top field of quality bowlers including several international and state representatives.

The final was played out between two composite teams involving the winner rink of Peter Condon, John McCarron, Peter Loe and Matt Flapper (s) up against the unlucky runners-up team comprising two Moama bowlers, Peter Broom and Jim Hogan combining with Eric Kosloff and Noel Verlinden (s) from Ballarat.

The final played over six scoring ends was a close affair until Flapper drove the head to put the jack in the ditch and pick up four shots which enabled them to take out the game 6-4.
