The Australia Day Holiday at our Club hosted the 30th Beerenberg Tournament in bright sunlight and excellent bowling conditions. Sixty four bowlers from interstate, country and metro graced our greens to play four games (two fours and two pairs) during the day.
Throughout the day bowlers and supporters were provided with pre-game nibbles, a magnificent luncheon and scones and cream at the conclusion of the final game. Club Event and Catering Coordinator, Shelly Howe, and her team did our Club proud with the presentation of the hall and management of the food. Our thanks to Janet Liebelt who made the scones for afternoon tea.
Bar staff made sure everyone received their attention and Val & Pat ensured the registrations and raffle were professionally managed. Thanks to Chris Rowe as referee.
Winners on the day were Uraidla’s Geoff Deeble’s composite rink of Annette Forbes (Woodside), “Tag” Hunter (Goolwa) and Chris Nichols (Mt Barker). Runners up were David Harvey, John Allen, Elaine Harvey and Liz Allen from Brighton.
Greg Lomax, deputising for his wife Monique from Beerenberg, spoke of Founder Member and Past President, the late Grant Paech’s association with our Club and the enjoyment it gave him outside of work. Greg then presented the winners, runner’s up plus the spot prizes and raffle winners their respective prizes.
The Club is indebted to Grant’s wife Carol and their family in continuing their association with our Club and reaching 30 years.
The Club thanks everyone who played their part in making the day such as success.
Congratulations and well done.
