There was only one game of Open Pennants for our club on Sunday with Grade 5 playing Harden at Harden.

The Harden side recorded a clear-cut win – just the reverse of the games played at Young in Round 3.

The overall score was 71-49 with Cliff Traynor losing to Terry Ricketts 24-13, Denis Rosen losing to Craig Phillis 31-19 and Tony Ruhl defeating Matt Peisley 17–16.

That was the final sectional round for Grade 5 and the Boorowa Ex–Services side are the overall winners and will play in the Zone 8 Finals at Young in April.

Another result of interest was Temora (Grade 3) defeating Tumut (Grade 4) for a points score of 9–1.

This should ensure that with two postponed games to play Young will be the winners in Grade 3 and Tumut will be the winners in Grade 4.

Play continued in the State Championships at Dubbo with a number of players from Young involved.

Elsie Hines, Heather Bailey and Margaret Gailey played in the Women’s Senior Triples.

Unfortunately they lost their three sectional games.

Brian Christie and Denis Rosen won two of their three sectional games in the Open Reserve Pairs but another team in their section won all three games so they did not qualify for the semi–finals.

Peter Watts lost his three games in the Men’s Senior Singles.

At Young there were 14 players on the green on Thursday afternoon and the vouchers went to Jim McQuade, Aldo Malvicino and Mark Anderson with a 13 shot win.

Other winners were Glen Seward and Ian Schofield (12 shots) and Chris Wright and Tony Ruhl (6 shots).

The early morning rain deterred most players on Saturday.

There were 8 players on the green in the afternoon but play was abandoned about half-way through the game when the rain returned.

Once again more than 70 players took part in the Guy Pickering Charity Challenge.

The Lachlan Street team were the winners on Tuesday night – the second week in a row.

The winners for Thursday night were Volleys 2 after a count-back with 3G Mac Attack.

On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th April the club will host the 2024 Bing Wallder Shield.

This will involve teams of fours representing the old districts in Zone 8.

There will be three games played on Saturday and two games on Sunday morning.

Players should check the flyers on the notice board concerning a Men’s Pairs tournament to be played at the club on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May.
