MORE FINALS AT DONCASTER. – Doncaster Bowling Club


We are coming to the pointy end of the season and Bowls Victoria awarded us with three finals this weekend (17 March). A Premier Division game, a Division 1 game and a Division 7 game.

As usual the grounds and greens were immaculate, and many members were either assigned duties or helped out for the day. I did not take a photo of Kath White and Kay Bishop who served all day on the inside bar, nor Brian Salvage or Ash Rowe who were calculating the score boards, nor Lorraine McLean for selling sandwiches most of the afternoon. So thanks to those people, and all the others in the photos. Many hands make light work.
