It was a mixed set of results for the club in last week’s round of pennant matches. In mid-week pennant Division Two and Three were able to produce victories against Moama but the Division One side fell short by 7 shots. In the Division One match, Veronica Kelly, Leica Roney, Sue Proctor and Lorna Phyland finished their game with an 8-shot win. The Division Two side defeated Moama by 8 shots. Marg Shearer, Ellie McGowan, Helen Pitts and Ann Vanderkley produced a great result, winning by 15 shots. The Division Three side also defeated Moama and the margin was 9 shots. Bernie Johns, Beth Caldow, Lois Robson and Ronda Hyland finished their game with an 11-shot win.

Only the Division Two side could produce an overall win in Saturday’s round of weekend pennant, with the Division Five side receiving a forfeit from Tongala. The Division Two team defeated Rich River by 8 shots, and this was largely due to the 19-shot win by Carl Davis, Col Berryman, Max Bennett and Denis Portwine. The Division One side lost to Rich River by 9 shots. George Thornley and his team of Bill Cook, Stan Glasser and Jim Ferrier continued their good form, winning their game 25/24. The Division Three side also lost at Rich River, with their only winning rink being Don Hicks, Gary Trotter, Darren Curtis and Bill Palmer, who won their game by 6 shots. The Division Four side played Rich River at home, but went down by 12 shots. Cec Moss and his team of Jack Shearer, Keith McGowan and Bob Tyson continued good form and won their game by 3 shots.
