Tuross Head Bowlers Combined Presentation Day

Tuross Head bowlers held their annual Presentation Day on Tuesday 16th November.

The bowlers enjoyed a game of bowls on a lovely sunny day. A feature of the day is the game played by the two Presidents’ chosen sides. This year it was won by the women. Following the games everyone enjoyed a delightful lunch, provided by Jack’s kitchen.

The tables, decorated by Cheryl McRae and helper Pam Mazzucchelli looked very smart.

During lunch, bowlers enjoyed a slide show with highlights of the events of 2021. Despite the disruption of COVID, most major bowls championship events were able to be played.

MC for the day, Women’s Bowls Secretary Irene Macdonald welcomed all bowlers to the celebratory event. Following lunch, Presidents Doreen Monks and Col Fletcher gave short speeches before presenting the following members with their awards.

Doreen mentioned the sad passing of long term bowler and Women’s Patron – June Everett who died in Sydney in September aged 94.
