IN NEED OF A PENNANT PLAYER?
A very important broadcast to all GVBD Clubs that for the rest of the 2017/18 season I, James McLeod, will be the Pennant Co-Ordinator Contact , if Clubs are having trouble finding players to fill Pennant sides, so Clubs do not have to forfiet.

The Goulburn Valley Bowls Division - Women's Champion of Champion Pairs was played at Shepparton Park Bowls Club yesterday (Wednesday 31st January, 2018) with the Quarter Finals, Semi Finals and Grand Final being played in the one day, therefor it was a long day for the finalist having played 10 hours of bowls. Congratulations to the Winners and Runners Up on an excellent display of bowling.
The winners were Stacey Collier and Margaret Anderson (Mooroopna) winning by 1 shot in the Final defeating the Shepparton Golf Team (Jo Crowe and Kris Wright) 16/15. Stacey and Margaret only won their semi final by 1 shot as well - this pair is a great story as Stacey is the youngest female bowler (aged 36) and her partner is the oldest at Mooroopna (aged 84).
Attached are two photos taken on the day and we also take the opportunity to congratulate all Club Pairs Representative participating in this event.
