Bob Penson Memorial Day Challenge

The inaugural Bob Penson Memorial Challenge was held this afternoon (10/12/2021) in windy, gusty, sunny, rainy conditions. The black cloud threatened all afternoon, but we were able to get the three games of 10 ends in.
The event was very well supported, with many of Bob’s old mates playing, including Lindsay Adamson, Ian Jarratt, Vic Gauci and Joe & Rose Ednie. Ian and Lyndsay gave a lovely tribute to Bob, which the attendees really appreciated. Cheryl Ryan (Bob’s long-time partner) was thanked for instigating and sponsoring this very special event. The event winners were:
    1st 3 Wins + 25 Robin Hill, Gale Hill & Peter Springett (representing Bowls Central Coast)
    2nd 3 Wins + 20 Yvonne Gordon, Carol Boyd & Shane Waddell.
    3rd 3 Wins + 19 Meena Kelso, Joan Murphy & Terry Murphy
    4th 3 Wins + 12 Judy Brown, Carol Catchpool & Terry Brown

The 1st placed Winners also get their names engraved on the inaugural ‘Bob Penson Memorial Challenge Day’ trophy.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the event, which we hope will become an annual fixture. Special thanks again to Cheryl Ryan for the great day. Sensational to see you playing again...
