Interclub Challenge with Melbourne Chapter — Bowling — September 2019.

Arti­cle by Jim Bishop

We arrived at the For­est Hill Chase shop­ping cen­tre at 11.30 am to find Ian Maclean already wait­ing. So we decid­ed to go into the bowl­ing cen­tre and grab a cof­fee and wait for peo­ple to arrive inside we found that were 6 or 7 already there.

So we con­firmed our pre booked bowl­ing lanes and food selec­tions in prepa­ra­tion for the event by mid­day many mem­bers from both clubs had arrived so it was time to “shoe up” and form teams and set­tle in for what promised to be a great afternoon.

It proved to be a great after­noon with two games per per­son being played and five teams in total. With so many teams play­ing the indi­vid­ual scor­ing was of great inter­est to every one and the com­pet­i­tive nature between both indi­vid­u­als and our two clubs was robust with lots of good heart­ed banter.

We enjoyed the hot food pro­vid­ed dur­ing the after­noon and con­tin­ued play­ing until all games were com­plet­ed. Pap­py and I agreed on how we would decide the final result. The com­plet­ed bowl­ing card sheets were col­lect­ed from the man­age­ment desk and evened out the play­er num­bers for each side and aver­aged the scores.

The results were EMHC 179 — Mel­bourne Chap­ter 191. So our guests won.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to to the Mel­bourne Chap­ter mem­bers they retain the tro­phy “UNTIL NEXT TIME” when we compete.

So our day end­ed and a good joint run was held and was real­ly well attended.

Stay hap­py and safe. Jim and Kay.
