SUNDAY was the season opening for the Mansfield Bowls Club.
More than 50 members enjoyed a barbecue lunch, and then played all afternoon in the glorious sunshine.
President Julie Holland honoured four members for becoming ‘super-veterans’.
Graham Padbury, Dawn Friday, Ellen Sheahan and Marta Mueck have all been valued and hard-working members for many years, and all continue to be excellent bowlers.
The symbolic delivery of the first jack for the season was by Graham Padbury, and the first bowl by Dawn Friday, and it landed right on the jack.
A high standard was thus set for the rest of the afternoon, and players competed in a spirit of fun for prizes donated by President Julie.
