Veteran’s Golf

Much needed rain on Thursday caused the 12 hole Veteran's golf in Parkes to be called off last week. Golf on Thursday will be here in Forbes with nominations from 12.30pm for a 1pm tee off. All welcome. It was slightly different last week for Cheating Tuesday where one the heaviest fogs of the year had all players driving off the first tee to see their ball travel out of sight. Still 16 enjoyed the outing while slightly on the chilly side. Winner of the 12 hole competition was Frank Donohue with 28 points on a count-back from Barry Shine. Next best were Peter Schofield and Milton Cartwright on 26 points. For information on vets and other golf call Pro Shop on 6851 1554.                 

Ladies Bowls

We had a very small group of ladies playing social bowls last week due to a funeral being held at the same time of a well known local identity. Two games of triples were enjoyed and the team of Annette Tisdell Glenys Ryan and Alice Allen were the lucky rink winners for the day. Tomorrow will be the start of the Club Major Fours Competition with Lesley Dunstan Jill Taylor Hazell Prince and Glenys Ryan versus Carmel Murray Noela Girot Lyn Simmonds and Mary Everson  and Alison Cutcliffe Pat Hodson Pam Stevens and Anne Walker versus Ann Mackay Kay Toohey Annette Tisdell and Jan Waugh. We have some of our players being hospitalised recently and hope they will all be back out on the green again playing bowls with a new lease of life! On August 16 the Cannon Merritt competition will be played at Forbes against Condobolin. Names are on the board, let selectors know if you are unable to play. This will also apply to the teams going to Condobolin on August 17 to play in the Jones Trophy Good.
