Well, before I sign off bowlers and readers, I’d like to mention to Betty Burns or Toni Vandenberg that your mate that plays for the Pin Heads’ team, Terrie Walsh, wants you to join their team and I also welcome you back.

Officials are also looking for more teams of four players, so if you are bored on a Monday night why not take up tenpin bowling?

You don’t need to be a good bowler to play as it is based on handicap and the cost is $21 for three games plus there is money to be won on the first game.

There are also five meat raffles every week and great music to listen to while you are bowling.

Interested persons just come along at 5.45pm to Shoalhaven City Lanes, Narang Road, Bomaderry.

Well, that’s all for this week, so until next time good luck and high scoring.

Les Collins.
