Gil bowlers win Battlers Shield final
The winners of the social bowls on Wednesday April 28 were Jo, Mouse and Fox for the highest winning margin.
On Sunday our teams played in the final round of the Battlers Shield at Mendooran.
Gilgandra won on the day with 107 points with Mendooran a close second at 89 points. Followed by Warren and Gulargambone.
Holy Bowly! We won overall and came home with the shield, followed by Warren, Mendooran and Gular-gambone. However, this competition is not about winning but was started in 2014 as a social event and to help boost local battling bowling clubs.
Over the years many new friendships have been made and all have a great time.
A woman goes into the local newspaper to get the obituary for her recently deceased husband. The editor informs her there is a $5 per word charge. She pauses, reflects and says “well let it say ‘Fred Brown died’”.
The editor says there is a seven word minimum for obituaries. Again she thinks it over and says, “In that case let it say, ‘Fred Brown died, bowls equipment for sale’”.
