The first round of the Fours Championships will also commence this weekend. Bob Dicks, Barry Johnson, Maxine Elsom, and Phil Godber, will be turningup on Saturday to play Mick Harvey, Mal Altmann, Bruce Parker, and Stacey Reynolds. All other teams are encouraged to try and play their games either on Saturday or Sunday this weekend, so as to keep the championships moving along. This is because, there are a lot of upcoming championship matches to get through and, hopefully, they will all be completed before the end of the year this time!
