Another good roll up on Thursday for a great game of bowls. The first game was slow scoring one between Jacki and Dorothy who lost to Jan and Dooreen 6-5.
This was Jan's first game and to win first up she thought she would be selected for Australia's bowls team (sorry Jan).
The next was between Jean and Maureen who beat the opposition team of Dorothy and Jacki.
It was some time since Jean has played but when Jean and Maureen team up there is no stopping them, they won 13-3.
In the final game over 4 holes they bean Jan and Dooreen 7-2. This Thursday we have heard we may have a couple of new players. We start at 2pm. We also have 50 and over Monday afternoon at 2pm everyone most welcome to come along for a great afternoon of cards called UNO.

Thanks Julie who looked after the local ladies golf bowl. Badge draw is for $1000 this week the jackpot putt was worth $1281 Deb Matheson's attempt went in and spun out.
Golf next Saturday is July's medal Sunday is President's Day when the left handers take on the right handers in a medley stableford.
The reserve grade clash was a solid affair with little between the two sides. We scored just before the break to see us go to the sheds holding a 12-nil advantage.
Replacement hooker Jak Jeffrey scored a great individual try not long after the break to see the Tigers hold what looked like a match-winning 18-nil advantage, to the Jets' credit they didn't go away and fought their way back to 18-12 with five minutes on the clock, lead by Tooley and the fat halfback we were able to hold them out to record a gutsy win.
We are holding down second spot on the ladder just one point behind competition leaders Macquarie.
Justin Cox was good as were Simmon Bartley and Dane Casey.
Jak Jeffrey was also very good off the bench. He added a bit of spark to the boys when he got out there.
The under 18s bounced back to form with a convincing 80-6 demolition of the Jets.
The boys just played good, solid footy, making very few errors and as a result the points flowed.
Cooper Ryan stood tall, he scored a couple of tries and worked hard for the whole game.
Big Fletch Jackson was also good, crashing over beside the posts.
Our forwards were well led by front rowers Liam Durrington and Ned Dawson.
Both these boys tore holes in the Jets defence.
In the backs Harry Blake and Mark Kilpatrick were good as was goal kicking centre Matty McDougal who came up with a personal tally of 30 points with
11 goals and two tries, super effort mate.
The ladies went down 24-22 in a nail biter. Bad luck girls. You looked the winners until the dying moments.
This weekend we travel to Forbes to take on the Magpies."

Baradine still in the hunt
The Baradine Magpies remain in the hunt for a semi final berth when they won the Battle of The Birds at Baradine on Saturday, defeating the other Magpie outfit in the Christie and Hood Castlereagh League competition, the Trangie Magpies 40 points to 30
The win keeps them in the race for fourth spot on the competition ladder sitting just one point adrift of Coonabarabran with four competition rounds remaining. The game was an entertaining one, with twelve tries being scored, the Trangie hooker Braden Carney bagging four of them, and it was one that Baradine desperately needed to win as they try to chase down Coonabarabran.
The Unicorns had to battle hard against a dogged Coolah Kangaroos team to claim their two competition points. Indeed the Roos should have went to the break in the lead after bombing a number of try scoring opportunities in the first half, but they had to be satisfied with going to the sheds at 16 all. The second half saw Coonabarabran slowly draw away to register a 38 to 28 victory. They were best served by their fullback Shannon Doole, half Sebastian Backhouse and front rower Matt Turner whilst for Coolah their half Brayden Burgess and front rower Andrew Rumble handed in big games. The remaining rugby league game was the Boronia Cup Challenge game played at Gilgandra between the Panthers and the visiting Dunedoo Swans
Within 12 minutes of the kick off the home side had scores three converted tries and were well in command and never really threatened, with Dunedoo’s only points in the game coming in the 71st minute by way of a converted try to Blake Taufa, but it was way too little too late and the Panthers triumphed 50 points to 6 Whilst the rugby league game at Gilgandra never reached any great heights, the same could not be said about the league tag encounter between the Pink Panthers and the Swannettes, the game going down to the wire
In somewhat of a surprise the Pink Panthers recovered from being down six points to nil in the opening minute to score 22 unanswered points themselves before the break to make it 22 to 6 at half time The Swannettes were certainly not going to lay down and they scored converted tries in the 10th and 15th minute of the second half to set up a thrilling and frantic final ten minutes with the scoreboard reading 22 to 18
That was to be the final score, the loss being only the second time this year that the Swanettes have tasted defeat and despite the loss they still lead the competition Other league tag games saw warren prove too strong for Gulgong, winning 54 to nil and Baradine keeping the semi final aspirations alive with 42 to 10 win over Trangie
Round 15 of the Christie and Hood Castlereagh League competition will be highlighted by the rugby league clash at Gulgong when the third placed Terriers host first placed Gilgandra, the home side will undoubtedly be out to become the first team to down the Panthers in season 2017.
