With hopes high the Yarra Junction Bowling Club finally got the season underway and were ready to show off the newly installed sun shades on their first weekend game, only to be rained out against Eastwood Golf.
The green like the rest of the valley just didn’t drain away in time and the game was abandoned with points being shared.
The following Saturday they suffered defeat by Dandenong on a very heavy grass with only one rink coming close to a win.
Round three was played in strong cross winds making play difficult for all players but the Eagles managed an overall win at home against Bayswater.
The midweek team played a strong Donvale team for their first game and only managed a one rink win, but the second round home game was more successful with a great win against Eastwood Golf.
The greens have been wonderfully maintained by a dedicated team of volunteers despite all the storms and rain over the preceding months, and rabbit proof fencing being installed by those same volunteers should make their job easier in the future.
The club is looking forward to planned development of clubroom facilities and the surrounding area in 2022 for the enjoyment of both club members and the community.
Social bowls on Thursday from 1pm continues to be popular and has been extended to 7pm, especially for those who may like to play after work or school.
New members are always warmly welcome so come give bowls a try.
Hall and or green hire is available to the community for private or work functions.
