Sunday's semi-finals were two excellent matches. In the first Michael Gray, Keith Gray and Craig Hogan came from behind to defeat Hayden Ward, Reg Thoms and Peter Simpson who substituted for Bob Toole 21 to 18. In the other Joe Price, Martin Cutler and Robert Coulstock lead all the way to defeat Phil Greenhalgh, Michael Jenkins and Russel Sheely 27 to 20.

Remember the winning team will represent our club in the ACT Fours as will the winners of the Triples that are now being played be our representing team in ACT.
Saturday Mixed Bowls Green Fees
Our club management has decided that anyone playing bowls during the week will not be charged green fees on Saturday. The aim is to increase bowler participation on weekends. Members or visitors who play in either the women’s or men’s midweek bowls will be given a voucher for the following Saturday's green fees. These non transferable vouchers will be handed out when paying your green fees prior to play during the week. They are usable for the following Saturday by the person name on it only. Green fees are applicable to persons who have not played during the week. The vouchers are only for regular Saturday mixed bowls.
Program and selectors
Friday September 22. Single Entry Pairs. Selectors are Michael Watts and Kevin Rudd.
