Bowlers and readers, there are only five rounds remaining until the next competition starts up again and it would be nice to get four more teams of four players each.

The cost is $21 per player for three games and it doesn’t matter if you are not a real good player.

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

Interested persons 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.
