Unfortunately the Division Two side could
not deliver the daily double, when it once again

consistent Fish Creek combination.

a few quiet drinks.
Thanks to all those who played for the club in
pennant during the year.

small club. Thanks to the selection commit-
tees, team managers, treasurers and everyone
else who played their part.

Last Tuesday February 21 was a beautiful day
for the Grand Final at Korumburra, but unfor-
tunately Tarwin Lower’s Division 2 was beaten
by Port Welshpool.
Thank you to the spectators who encouraged
the team and later joined us back at the club-
rooms to celebrate their achievement of reach-
ing the Grand Final.
Thank you also to Korumburra for hosting
the final and providing lunch for the players.
The following day was Wednesday Triples at
Tarwin and it was observed by some that a few
of the stars of the previous day were not playing
to their full potential!
Good to see that we are all human.
The winning team was Tarwin’s Steve Gra-
ham, Tommy Hamdorf and one of our club’s
newest players, Colin Mansfield.

on this occasion it was awful.

Final win 93-66.
Although the Grand Final loss was not the re-
