Digger’s Day at Mt Lawley DIGGER’S DAY at MT LAWLEY
Pictures of sartorial splendour, these four old Diggers dug deep to win this prestige annual event.
Skipped by (pictured) Keith Manton, Rod Beazley, new member Darryl Ikin and John Weir they won from John Hauck, who skipped a visiting Warwick team of Alan Hornby, Rick Stingemore and Graham Connor.
Third was Bob Mulroy, Geoff Mills, Dennis Irving and Arthur Dolphin.
Highlight of the day, apart from the Mt Lawley Ladies excellent lunch, was a bidding duel for a bottle of rare port donated by Social Committee Chairman Ron Prosser.
John Hauck won the duel from underbidder Echo Widermanski. I can’t divulge the final bid in case somebody from the ATO is reading.
BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD
The recent Interstate Test series was won by Victoria from Queensland , with WA third.
The star WA team in the Jack Hamilton VC Trophy was skipped by one of our two Singapore Army ex-servicemen Willie Tan. Rod Beazley third, Norrie Conduit second and Frank Fletcher lead, four wins and a draw.
The Dr Sydney Krantz Trophy was won by New South Wales, WA was sixth.
We are still recruiting from all Allied serving and ex servicemen/women. Catch up with mates, play some bowls, listen to a few fibs and have a beer.(In moderation – of course)
