Bowls In Focus : February 2010
32 Bowls In Focus Ballarat Clunes were delighted to host VLBA president Maureen Connolly's visit to the club to celebrate their 80th Anniversary recently. Newly elected Clunes president Maureen Goldsmith and secretary Barbara Millar greeted guests on arrival ensuring all went smoothly. Following a delightful lunch in the newly refurbished clubhouse, guests were entertained by Joy Torney, who recounted Clunes's his- tory and the role females played in the early years. Joy, who proudly acknowl- edged being the oldest female member of the club at 88, plays pennant weekly as a third in Division 5 and reads without glasses. Not able to be present, due to moving to Mildura that very day, was past secretary Valerie Anderson who compiled the history. Dot Jones spoke on the achievements of past members before president Maureen presented a super veterans badge to Peg Tunstall. Past members who had travelled far all looked resplendent in their finery, made speeches, lit the candles, cut the cake and to finish the afternoon the state president graciously entertained guests with a few songs. Bellarine The Drysdale Ladies Bowling Club recently celebrated its 60th Birthday. President Kaye Batt welcomed VLBA vice president Jackie McLaren together with present and past members of the club, with guests from Bellarine, and the neighbouring Geelong and Colac Districts. A very enjoyable lunch was followed by a game of bowls and afternoon tea where the cutting of the beautiful birthday cake was shared by life members Nel Musgrove, Gwen Bush and Alice Bennett. It was a great day of celebration for the club with lots of reminiscing, especially with the more senior ladies. Central A huge cheer for the Seymour trio of Ali- son Hall, Ann Borham and Jenny Ridd who won the state triples championship at Bendigo last month.
