At TGIF, Margi Botha’s tab came up, but as she was not present, next week’s draw will be worth R200. Peter Snyman won the 100 board. Unfortunately, the key draw will only be drawn next week and all tickets will be carried over.

In the women’s nominated pairs, Jane Coetzee and Denise Bingham beat Robyn Hutton and Val de Kok, Di Robinson and Nita Meumann defeated Tokkie de Kock and Elmarie Young, and Elsie Walker and Nicky Stirzaker overcame Liz Morgan-Davies and Lynn Joubert.

Well done to the two women’s teams in midweek league skipped by Mardi Dovale and Doreen Salmond on winning their first game – good luck in the next round. Good bowling to all the men playing inter-club league on Saturday, 28 March. Note the draw is on the board for the Oppenheimer mixed pairs.

Remember Friday, 27 March is the return of mixed 2-4-2 at 1pm for 1.30pm. There is still space for those who want to play in the Picardy Bazooka mixed tabs-in on Sunday morning, 29 March.

The club was saddened to hear of the death of John Swanton, past president of Twini Bowling Club. Condolences are sent to his family and friends. Many happy returns are sent to Val de Kok, Alec Stirzaker, Mike Pitchers and Bill Riley this week, and get well soon to all who are sick at the moment.
