On 25 March at the Glen Waverley Bowling Club, the CGA team was unable to repeat last year’s great effort in winning the APS Past Student’s Bowls Tournament. Nevertheless, every bowler put in a great effort and performed well on the day. The results of many games were close, and we finished in a creditable fourth position — Carey taking out the title this year. Caulfield’s best rink was skipped by Scott Wellington supported by Chris Warne, Eliza Wellington and Malcolm Finlayson; each received a trophy for their efforts.
Our last game for the season was played at the MCC greens at Swinburne Avenue, Hawthorn, where we were pitted against MCC and Old Melburnians. Caulfield’s best rink on the day was skipped by Tony Bagnall, who bowled well in his first appearance as a skipper; he was ably supported by Kevin Allen, Bev Allen and Jan Sleeman, who had great win over a strong Old Melburnian four.
We are looking for new bowlers to join us. Most of our games next year will be played on the beautiful greens at the MCC Bowls Club in Swinburne Avenue, Hawthorn. Male or female bowlers who are past students or are the parents or grandparents of past and present students, would be most welcome. Please contact the CGA Office if you are interested in joining. Letters will be sent out to all bowlers advising fixtured games for the coming season in August.
