WOW, what an exceptional 2018/2019 League season, with a total of 5 sides competing across both Men’s
and Ladies Sections. The results were admirable, with most teams remaining in their respective divisions.

Mike Bolel and his incredible team played in the finals of the Wednesday league at the Italian Club on
Wednesday the 20th of March. It was a nail-biting game, with the final score 16 to 18 in Italian Club’s
favour. What a contest. Well done to Mike, Max, Warwick and Mark, with Mel in the reserve position.
You did us so proud!

The quarter final, semi-finals, as well as the finals, were held at Bedfordview Bowling Club on Sunday the
24th of March. And, our very own member Bobby Donnelly going though both the quarter finals as well as
the semi finals. We watched in silent admiration, as Bobby held his own, end after end! He was finally
beaten by Jason Evans 21 to 14. Well done Bobby, we are super proud for you and your achievement in
this tremendously difficult Competition.
