Digging the dirt at the bowls club
AT LAST! After several weeks delay, work finally got under way on Thursday to rip up A and B greens before being replaced by a synthetic surface.
The company, Evergreen Synthetic Bowling Greens, is considered to be WA's leaders in this field and have recently installed greens at North Beach and Wanneroo.
The work means, of course, that we only have the use of C green.
This development will be the major thrust of President Ian Edgar's goal of recruiting 40 new players in the next 12 months. The figure currently stands at 13, although unfortunately we have lost several good players from last season.
STOP PRESS: B Green could be ready for rolling by October 19.

Grand fund raising effort
MEMBERS raised a bumper $1081 on Thursday on the annual Pink Cancer Day, As part of the fun day, the format was 'Irish Bowls', which involved all the bowls being delivered in reverse order with the jack then being sent down. Surprisingly this was not the idea of Belfast born Merriwa president, Ian Edgar, but club stalwart Audrey Patterson. The most important winners were Kaye Gedling and Danny MacFarlane (pictured left) , who were deemed the best turned out.
