MANNINGHAM SHIELD CHALLENGE 2017 – Doncaster Bowling Club
April 2nd, 2017
Three special events in three days, what a busy weekend.
It was Doncaster’s turn to host the Mayoral Cup Challenge this year. The hosting rotates between the five bowling clubs in the Manningham municipality; Donvale, Greythorn, Templestowe, Yarra Valley Country Club and Doncaster.
Each club chooses from their committees two teams, consisting of four ladies and four men. They then play two 10 end games against the different clubs. There is a break for afternoon tea, and a special “High Tea” at the finish.
Our Mayor Michelle Kleinert, the Deputy Mayor Mike Zafiropoulos AM JP, and Councillor Anna Chen accepted the invitation to attend the ” High Tea”, and for the Mayor to present the shield to the winning club.
Last year Donvale Bowling Club won and they hoped they would again, but it wasn’t to be.
At the end of the day the Mayor presented the shield to Jim Grindlay and the winning club for 2017 – Yarra Valley Country Club.
The Mayor also said that her father is a member of Templestowe Bowls Club, and when she received our invitation she thought that she would have to play!…….Lyn.
