2016 Ettalong v The Hills Challenge Cup

 

The 2016 Ettalong v The Hills Challenge Cup lived up to its reputation. A great day, renewing acquaintences, and playing the great game of lawn bowls. We were greeted on arrival by the President, and the Executive Committee. On entering the Club the members formed a guard of honour, clapping us in, and making us feel very welcome. After a delicious morning tea of home made goodies, we took to the Greens, for the days challenge. It was an extremely hot day, which I am sure took its toll on many. After the game, a very enjoyable lunch was served, raffles drawn, (our own Shirley Andrews, taking first prize in the raffle). It was then down to the more serious part of the day. Who won the 2016 Challenge Cup? This was a momentous one, as both Clubs had won it twice and we had one draw. Unfortunately it was not Ettalong, we were beaten by 8 shots. The Hills scoring 157 Shots to Ettalong's 149. We are now look forward to contesting this cup in 2017.
