There are just a few Marysville ladies who regularly travel to other Dalhousie clubs to play in tournaments and Bowls. A Bowl is a team event whereby each member of the 3-person team plays her own game of stableford and their combined points are totalled to get a final score. The team with the best score wins the Bowl and holds it for 12 months. So far this year there have been Bowls played at Alexandra, Hidden Valley, Woodend and last week at Kilmore. As has been reported earlier a Marysville team won both the Alexandra and Woodend Bowl and on Thursday they were thrilled to win the Kilmore Bowl. The team comprising Jillian Chandler, Helen Howard and Heather Jenkins combined to finish with the highest score of 99 points and thus won the Bowl. This was a great effort and special congratulations to Heather Jenkins who has been a member of each of the winning Bowl teams. Lesley Rundle (32) won C Grade with 37 points which was the best score of the day and Lesley also won the Veterans event and was awarded 5 Dalhousie Player of the Year points. Jillian and Heather also won Player of the Year points and with Wendy Gosden from Romsey won the small teams event. Our thanks to the Kilmore ladies for their hospitality. This week ladies from many clubs will gather at Marysville to play in the Sandy Wilson Memorial Bowl.
Last Saturday both the men and the ladies played a Par round. The ladies winner was Jillian Chandler (34) with -1 followed by Helen Howard (25) with -2. The men’s winner was Ross Ansell (16) with +4 and Yewls Kuan (13) was just one shot behind with +3. The nearest the pins were won by Keith Atwell, Peter Lilley, Paul Martin and Gail Leigh who also won the Golden Shot. Next Saturday the ladies will play a stroke round for the second round of their Club Championships and the men will play stableford for the first round of the Barton Cup.
Last weekend the Rotary District 9790 Conference was held in Marysville with over 300 participants. On Friday Marysville hosted the Rotary golf day and all the golfers enjoyed their game and the course. The Ride to Conference Charity Bike Ride finished at the club and the riders joined the golfers for afternoon tea. Our thanks to Rotary member Glenda Woods from Yea for co ordinating the event, to Gleywnis Shiong for her assistance on the day and to Kellan Fiske and the volunteers for preparing the course so well.
Future club events include the Lakeside Challenge on Saturday 2 April and the Tour Elephants Challenge on Saturday 9 April. Members are asked to inform Colin Davies if they intend playing in these events.
