On Thursday from 5.30pm, the Bowling Club was the venue for a community information session facilitated by ‘Ammo’ from Goyder Council on Food Safety/Handling regarding new government regulations for clubs and organisations for the responsible sale of food and alcohol. A great response of over thirty people representing almost every organisation in the area attended to be updated with the latest information.

The club recently obtained new bowls stickers which were kindly sponsored by Sskids Tyres for which the club thanks them for their valuable support.

Pam Dutschke celebrated her 80th birthday last Friday by going to the Saddleworth bowls tournament with Joy Hams, Doreen Twartz and Rhonda Horne. On the same day Ruth Scoot, Judy Milde, Jane Felby and Joy Fiegert attended a tournament at Angaston.

A determined Eudunda Division 3 played a determined Tanunda at Tanunda in the first semi-final on a hot and humid afternoon, and unfortunately Eudunda were second best 51-56, ending their finals aspirations. Gordon ‘Kiwi’ Teau had a tight contest with Judy Thompson 17-17, Ron Hams had a handy lead however conceded a couple of ends late in the day, but was still the shining light 22-19, and Ruth Scoot was challenged by Brian Hoklas on a day when luck did not go Eudunda’s way 12-20.

Eudunda Division 4 played Lyndoch Gold at Lyndoch in the first semi-final and lost 23-53. Pam Dutschke played Jeff Pratt and went down 10-25, and Roy Fiegert was down to Rex Vanstone 13-28. Eudunda had a second chance (sitting second on the premiership table) to play the Preliminary Final on Sunday at Nuriootpa against Tanunda. Eudunda were excited to clinch a win by three shots, 37-34. Coming into the last end, the crowd was on the edge of their seats as across the board it was a drawn game, however on the last end Pam Dutschke drew the shot to finish 19-14 against Scotty Milne, and Roy Fiegert scored two shots against Jim Mullans finishing 18-20 which was a great result.

Eudunda will play Lyndoch Gold this Saturday at 9am at Freeling in the Grand Final – go Eudunda!
