In spite of inclement weather, men and ladies dusted off their club uniforms and came to welcome in the new bowling season. As is customary, the Ladies & Men's Champions have the honour of rolling the first jack and bowl of the season. The sun peeked out and so the members came out to watch Wayne Parks, runner up Men's Champion taking the role for Frank Seaton, and Janis Parks, Ladies Champion roll the jack and they each sent a bowl down the green to officially open the new season. Then it was back into the clubrooms before the heavens opened to enjoy an early afternoon tea. Thanks to all who provided the food. Empty trays indicated that the offerings were well received. Although no bowling took place, it was nice to welcome back returning members.
