Yarraman News

The Yarraman Bowls Club also fired back into life on Saturday, January 14 with a sponsored trophy day that was also the first outing of the club’s new monthly Birthday Boys event.

The idea for Birthday Boys was suggested at the November committee meeting and the fine details were fleshed out at the following month’s meeting.

Briefly, every member who has a birthday in that month contribute $20.00 towards the prizemoney.

In January, there were only two Birthday Boys (Steve Daly, January 1961 and Wayne Jewell, January 1956) so the prize money was a bit thin.

But players took to the greens for two games of 13 ends and everyone had a good time.

Birthday Boys will now be run on the second Saturday of each month. Green fees are $10.00 per player, names need to be in by noon for a 12:30pm start, and teams will be allotted by club draw.

Naturally, players from other clubs are welcome to take part too.

Club select teams will play two games of 12 ends or finish at the bell, with scoring two points an end and five for the win and no dead ends (respot the jack).

Green fees are $10 per player and names need to be in by 8:30am for a 9:30am start.

The Tournament will be followed by an afternoon tea.
