The winning team may change next year because Trevor's grandson Ruben is now playing - watch this space.

Congratulations to Jimmy Twist the winner of the Mens Minor Singles championship(on left) Condolences to Mick Miller who played a strong game, but not enough to beat Jimmy on the day.
The big news of the week was that of our triples team J. Heidtman/A. Rogers and K. Pepper advancing to the final of the Zone Triples Championship. A close fought game saw them within a whisker of success in the final but the team from Towradgi Park eventually proved too strong on the day and the boys had to settle for runners up. Nevertheless that was a result to be proud of.
Well done lads!!
