On a warm and sultry evening on 25th November, Series 3 wrapped up for the sixteen teams and for the year. The final round was hotly contested but all teams concluded that they were all winners because they were out having a great evening of fun and enjoying the company of family and friends. Drip Torchers went into the final round with a lead of 4 points meeting 3 Beares who managed to claw back two shots from them. It was grand seeing father and son going head to head captaining their respective sides but with such a good lead Drip Torches managed to fall over the line to take out first place. Congratulations, Michael, Simon and Dave.
After the game Moonlighters relaxed in the dining room and enjoyed a fine meal courtesy of Raymond, Jack and Susie, and we thank them for looking after us so well.

A stand-out performance in this Series came from the SeaHawks. This team has no ‘bowls affiliated player’ in their team, all being new players to the game. They are showing greatly improved skills and just one poor round has kept them out of the winners’ circle. They are the team to watch in Series 4.
We thank Coca-Cola Amatil for their valuable sponsorship, which has allowed Moonlighters to provide very attractive prizes and meal subsidies.
Series 4 is due to commence in February next year and we would love to hear from you if you would like to register an interest and/or a team. Please call Ellie on 0404 205 412 for more information.
