Barwick Cup 2021.
The Barwick Cup is for the annual challenge match between our ladies and men. In 2018 the ladies had the narrowest of wins, in 2019 the men regained the trophy, it wasn't contested in 2020 so interest was high in this year's contest. At the halfway point the men led by a total of 5 shots, but in the second half the ladies pulled ahead to win by 114 to 84 shots, the ladies winning on 5 of the 6 rinks.
Congratulations to our ladies on a magnificent victory.
Bowl the Jack Competition.
This was the first time that this competition had taken place. The object was to bowl the jack from one corner of the green to the opposite corner where target zones had been set up, the zone nearest the corner being the highest scoring zone. About 40 people took part, and after everyone had bowled 3 jacks, there was a tie for first place between Gerry Lloyd and Roger Barwick, and after a shootout, Roger was declared the winner and was presented with the trophy which had been made by the competition organiser, Ken Payne.
