CORINELLA’S Saturday Winter Triples de -
fied the forecast and bowlers enjoyed excel-
lent weather for this time of year. Josie Lom-
agno (Travelling Jack) literally set up a shop
with all a bowler would need or want.
Joanna Lomagno came along to bowl and
as always brought a breath of fresh air to the
green. Jacquie Carter's minestrone soup left
nothing out and nothing to be desired. And
the kitchen helpers were Sandy Holmes and
This week there was only 1 X 2 game win-
ner, team “GSS ”, skipped by Shane Holmes
with Sandy Holmes and Graham McKergow,
on a fantastic score of 37 points. Shane
thanked Josie Lomagno for selling Sandy
her winning new shoes, and don't anyone
dare tell her they don't make her look taller!
Their nearest rival, with a win and a draw
on a score of 30 points was team “The Girls”,
skipped by Jacquie Carter with Therese Dur-
bridge and Carol Lincoln, who were more
than happy to be the bridesmaids again.
The raffle winners were Janet Gilmore,
Chris Bowers & Joanna Lomagno.
With only two Saturday Triples to be
played this season, team “Janet's Boys” only
just cling to the record of most times on the
podium. Statistics show that it is still pos-
sible for 5 teams to equal or beat them!
PERFECT bowling weather brought 30
bowlers out on Wednesday, to play 2x12-end
games of three-bowls triples, for the weekly
mixed-mufti social game at Inverloch.
Four teams managed to win both games,
including two "hard luck" triples, skipped by
Neil Everett and Linda Gallyot, with 33 and
32 points respectively.
Clear winners, with 38 points, were John
Sutcliffe (S), Rob Howard and Val Davis,
who were 15 points up after four ends, be-
fore their shell-shocked competitors scored
Runners-up, with 35 points, were Bryan
Hensley (S), Jill Bateman and Pat Sheedy.

scribed, so no more applications, please.

at Inverloch, with the lucky member's num-

Monday's carpet bowls has finished its'
winter season on a high note, with the largest
attendance for the year, thanks largely to the
tireless efforts of organiser Pat Stoneham,
the 'Mother' of indoor bowling at Inverloch.
This year's carpet bowlers included two or
three lady bowlers who have rediscovered
their affection for the sport and intend to re-
join the club as casual members, an option
which is now available for those who wish to
play lawn bowls on a casual basis, without
the need to play "uniform" matches. This is
great value at $70 a year membership fee.
Intending members are reminded that
their membership fees for this and all other
membership options were due on July 31,
and are now overdue.
Casual and Social members can join at any
time, but full members must be paid-up to
participate in Pennant practice matches and
other 'uniform' bowls events, beginning with
the Saturday Pennant practice match at Lily-
dale on Saturday, Sept 2.
The first Tuesday Pennant pre-season
match will be played at Leongatha on Tues-
day, September 19.
SOUTH WEST GIPPSLAND
THIS week the sun was shining and every-
one thought that San Remo had laid on the
weather just for them. Unfortunately, this
was not the entire truth, as the wind was ex-
tremely strong and made playing conditions
difficult. There were 27 players, all of whom
had an enjoyable day.
There was only one team who won both
games on the day, and so they were declared
the winners. This was the team skipped
by Peter McWilliams, with team members
Rod Olds, Lorna Clements and Laurie Bell.
Runners-up were the team skipped by Lind-
say Russell, with Judy Dickie and Rob Jef-
freys. Best one game winners were the team
skipped by Denis Talbot, with Jill Bateman,
Pauline McWilliams, and Ray Dickie.
Next week is at Lang Lang and the club
hopes to see everyone there.
SPRING is just around the corner and the
weather is warming up, which meant Thurs-
day was a nice day but a bit windy. Thirty
players turned out for a social game of bowls
and the winners on the day were Denis
Stanes, Kevin Olver and Anne Oehms. Run-
ners–up were Rob Aiken, Peter Millar and
Lorraine Day. Saturday game winners were
Rob Aitken and Claus Salger.
In every club there is a lot happening be-
hind the scenes, and at this point in time
the club wishes to thank Rob Aitken, Trevor
Teer and Wayne Mattack for organising and
running the winter program. Thanks also go
to those who helped with the new shelving,
replacing carpet and painting in the mens’
locker room, and to Wayne from Benway
Cabinets for installing a new tea and coffee
servery, which is so much neater and user
