Gala Day 2022

Friday 7th January saw 136 ladies take part in our annual Gala Day. After the disappointment of having to cancel last year due to high temperatures, it was wonderful to see so many teams return, along with some new faces, from clubs throughout the Perth and Peel area.

Winners of the day were the North Beach team of Val Cox, Rinske Butcher, Yvonne Ferguson and Jenni McLaughlin (pictured above). Runners Up were Mandurah’s Kerry West, Deb Rundell, Rose Steanjaic and Jeanette Hislop.

Thank you to our sponsors Aero BowlsWorld, Liquor Home Delivery and Liquor Traders Australia. To Peter Delavale, BWS Kingsley, Carine Glades Newsagency, Kingsley IGA and Woolworths Woodvale for their donations.

With an event this big there is a great deal of time and effort that goes into organising. Thank you to all those who helped by setting up tables, gathering donations, making up baskets, manning stalls, donating wine, books, jewellery, pamper goods..and even a fabulous roast dinner with all the trimmings!

To our Croquet ladies who stepped up yet again to provide the delicious biscuits, cakes, scones and slices. And to Wendy Saul and Jan Cook who worked tirelessly in our kitchen to make sure our salads and preparations went off without a problem, along with our kitchen helpers.

And finally, to our Women’s Match Committee of Shirley Palmer, Robyn Woodward, Glen Larcombe, Sandra Minnett and Larraine Brickell. These ladies put in hours and hours of preparation work, as well as on match day, to ensure the day ran smoothly. They even made sure that no team played another from their own  club…including all eight of the North Beach teams!!

Thank you to all the Sorrento ladies for your efforts and continued support of this popular and successful Gala Day. It was lovely to see all the happy faces, loving the game and enjoying each other’s friendship and bowls.
