Ladies subcommittee report

Joan Shelton

December 2020

Hello members. I hope you all had a great Christmas and welcomed in the new year with lots of smiles and are looking forward to plenty of games in the coming year.

This is what I hope to see as your president/secretary for 2021.

All our ladies on the greens each and every Wednesday with lots of friendship and fun. Even if you can’t play, come and support the ladies. We will enjoy a cuppa with you and of course to catch up on all the latest news.

We are all getting a little older and need a helping hand from our friends. Please, if you feel faint during a game because of the heat speak up. We can have a break in the games and a drink.

We need to represent the Rockhampton Ladies as a friendly and competitive group doing our bit towards the club’s reputation as a club people would like to join.

Our games director will have lots of work to do so please be kind to her.

As far as the three committees are concerned it would be nice if we all ended up working together and got jobs done and finished. Maybe we could end up on a win win decision.

I would like to thank Pat Wiemers and Val King for their help in 2020. It is surprising what a little help will do.

Looking forward to getting back with all our ladies and enjoying a cuppa.

November 2020

Another busy month has gone by which brings us closer to the end of the year.

We had a successful Invitation Fours with CQ taking out first prize. Yeppoon came second with Kay Borg’s team third and Leonie Tomkins’ team fourth. Kay McCrohon’s team won the Sportsman’s prize.

As usual, Zelma Mace hosted a lovely afternoon in memory of her parents, Merv and Pauline Martin. Thank you Zelma. It was appreciated by everyone.

Thanks also must go to everyone who donated gifts for the multi-draw raffle.

Wednesday, 18 November will be our last playing day this year with prize money donated by The Capricornian.

Our Christmas break-up is different this year. We are having ham and salad with sweets to follow.

Dress is casual. A gift to the value of $10 is optional.

September 2020

Once again there is not much to report.

Pennants was played last week with Yeppoon winning the purple badge with our ladies coming in second.
Well done!June is doing well with the competitions although not all games will be played.
The Invitation Fours will be held on Monday, 12 October. There will be three games of 15 ends.
Belated recognition to our ladies who won the inaugural CQDLBA District Shield (formerly the Molly Bradford Shield) at Gracemere Bowls Club in March. We are a bit tardy in getting their picture into the newsletter but better late than never!
I trust everyone is in good health … stay safe and well.
