New Club By-Law Bans Functions Evening Prior To Game Day

“With bloodshot eyes and bleeding hands, I took my new suit to the cleaners again… ”  Tex Perkins (The Cruel Sea incarnation)

That’s what I felt like on Sunday morning as I pulled on a Supers jumper.

A cracker of a night at the Sorrento Bowls Club with the tunes by Love Gun, the pants by Joey and the rarely played Stool Guitar by Seano, the Warriors played hard, danced hard and hit the bar pretty hard too.

All those shooters seemed like a bloody good idea at the time, thanks Whiskers and Bushy.  You blokes set the record for the amount of shooters ordered in 1 evening at any bowls club anywhere on the planet!

So, anyway, after we drank ’em, things got a little loose, except for Joey’s strides which just got tighter as the night went on.

Best to go with the what happened at the bowls club, stays at the bowls club, otherwise there could be recriminations, rumours about who left whose wife behind, and why we were even there on the Saturday night before a 10am start the next day.
