Dumbleyung Social Bowls
Each game cost $5 per person per week with it starting around 6 pm, and play going for approximately an hour. Depending on the turn out you would either verse your team to see who gets closest to the kitty or if there were plenty of teams we played team verse team -which became very competitive!
Dinner was available every night for $10, generally with 2-3 different and delicious menu options!
There were many players over the duration of the six weeks of Social Bowls, some were new to bowls or just not very confident but everyone played really well and the social event was a great opportunity for everyone to have a go! Players were placed in teams with at least one person that knew how to play bowls which meant everyone learnt the proper way, was guided through the game ad rules and help was there if needed - which was appreciated by all!
Wednesday, March 20 was the last night of Social Bowls and it was a beautiful night! The new acting CEO for the Dumbleyung Shire, Allan Cooper and his wife, Debbie attended and it was great to see them amongst the community. A visiting consultant who was in town for a couple days also came along to meet the community and have a social game of bowls.
With plenty of numbers on the last night it was decided to play corporate bowls which meant team verse team. It was a competitive and a fun night even though the score cards showed otherwise.
Many thanks go to Gough for organising this event and the Dumbleyung District Club for hosting the event and their support and usage of the grounds! Thank you to the fabulous cooks, Julie Biston-Kosar and Justine Hughes and all helpers that made the delicious meals every night.
