Gusty winds and storms forecast for Wednesday held off until the Scrounger game had concluded. There were 24 players, well attired in scarves and beanies and although there were windy gusts from all directions, bowlers demonstrated really good skills, resulting in surprisingly good heads.
This week's winner was Lynne Trenerry (40) A score levelled with that of Elmore Schumacher before he sadly had to relinquish 6 shots for his third week of handicap). Runner up was Mick Price (35)
