Nan Roos came home with a gold medal after winning the South Africa Masters Bowls Senior Singles Tournament at Windgate Park in Pretoria over the weekend.
The competition was stiff but Nan was as consistent as always as she managed to win all of her round robin games and in so doing booked herself a place in the final. The final lasted a gruelling 27 ends with Nan beating Loraine Victor from Windgate Park 21-19 and so walked away with the gold medal. Congratulations Nan, the Bowling Club is extremely proud of you!
This past Saturday the club hosted the u/15 and u/20 practice for the National Championship that takes place in Bloemfontein in April. The junior bowlers were put through their paces by Bowls South Africa coach, Jill Atkinson, who graciously gave up her time on Saturday to help hone the junior bowlers’ skills. The final team selections were also made and the club would like to congratulate the 14 junior bowlers that were chosen, especially the bowlers from Dundee: Sithembiso (Shrek) Ndwandwe, Nqubeku Mngomezulu andKeshmiel Govender on their selection to represent the KZN Country Bowls District in Bloemfontein. The Adopt-A-Child Initiative has had some great support thus far however funds are still needed. Please contact Greg on 082 924 7788 for more information about this initiative.
