Versatility Day Preparations
On the last day of August, Young Women’s Bowling Club will be holding their Versatility Day which is one of the highlights of the year.
Young WBC will host many players from all the clubs. Versatility day is an interesting concept in that a team of four will play a Singles game, a Pairs game, a Triples game and finish up with a Fours game at the end all in one day. Entries are coming in already and the day promises to be a success.
Members of Young WBC are reminded that items for the trading table, cooking, plants, books etc need to be planned. There will be raffles and 100 Club. The excitement is building.
NEW UNIFORM FOR 2017
Next year the Ladies at Young WBC will be stepping out in a new brighter uniform to be worn at Club competitions, Pennants and Away games to other clubs.
Next year the Ladies will be going green with a brighter shirt with a red and green pattern and the Young Cherry logo on the back.
Trousers, shorts and skirts will all be green to match the new shirt. Social days at Young will still be smart casual clothes, and the club will have some spare shirts for you to borrow if you want to take part in a competition before you’ve had a chance to get one of your own.

This Sunday our town competition grand-finals are being played. All rep teams will travel to Junee on Saturday for the Cherry Picker games and then on our traditional grand final day, we will finalise the town competition for 2016. We wish all the players the best of luck.
Remember that after the last grand-final there will be a short presentation where the grand-final winners will get their trophies and all the other players will receive a pennant.
Note that the mighty Winona’s Warriors will play the curtain raiser to the under 11 grand final in a format that allows parents and supporters a chance to watch a few games in case they have multiple kids playing.
