Gross – Marg Rushton 39, Tob Norris 43, Jan Edwards 46, Brenda Livingstone 48, Ellie Nicholas 50, Marie Isreal 51, Lori Cameron 51. Net – Marlene Hall 31.5, Sharon Warne 34, Rose Jacobson 37.5, Judy Fellbaum 38, Rikki Farrell 39, Fran Hutchison 39, Jean Tonks 39.5.

Our club championship is quickly approaching; enter soon and bring your best swing.
