Eudunda Bowls News
The Night Bowlers enjoyed a balmy night on a fast green, prepared by George Mitev for Mally, who together with Eudunda bowlers Bill, Greg, Geoff, Chucka and Frank were competing in the Men’s Country Carnival in Adelaide. Carolyn Doering thanked George for mowing and rolling the green, and the kitchen staff and Mike at the bar. Both Neil Eberhard and Judy Milde won meal vouchers in the raffle.
The Ladies played Lyndoch on our home turf and won 51-47. Joy Hams had a tussle with Marion Kenyon 13-17, Pat Obst defeated Joss Allwood 20-16, and Judy Milde had a comfortable lead on Sue Drummond until Lyndoch scored five shots on the last end, which resulted in Eudunda’s winning margin narrowed to 18-14.
There were no Thursday afternoon pennant matches due to the Men’s Country Carnival in Adelaide.

Congratulations to Greg Prior and Kym ‘Chucka’ Schutz who played off in Singles knockouts on Monday at the Men’s Country Carnival.
Liz Kleinig’s name was drawn for the Club Draw, but she was not present, so it jackpotted again.
All sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Bill Mader for his birthday on Sunday.
