Gilgandra bowlers represent in District Triples and Fours
By Gilgandra Bowling Club
Over the past two weekends, the club has been
represented in the both the District Triples and
Fours in Narromine.
Garry Raines, Dylan Marchant, and Noel
Raines played in the triples and were unlucky to go
down by one shot, 22–21 in the semi-final against
a West Dubbo team.
These three bowlers returned last weekend to
play in the Districts Fours and, joining them on the
first day, was Brent McKenzie.
Due to Brent’s unavailability on Sunday, the lads
came back to town to find another bowler who
would be up to the task, being Jo Raines. This team also went down by only one shot in
the quarter finals against a Dubbo City team, 17–
Wednesday Social bowls winners were Stacey
Reynolds and Larry Clark. They defeated Ted
Stewart and Mal Altmann, with the most ends and
a win 21–8, and 13–3 ends.

with Gil playing a home game against Gulgong in
the sevens. Teams that have been selected to play

Matt Thompson, Tracey
