The Brereton sisters-in-law dominated the social Pairs on Tuesday.

Bev Brereton and Annette Brereton combined to defeat their opponents in merciless fashion and take home the accolades.

During the week Don Isgro and Kalvin Stout met again, this time in a quarter-final of the 21-Up Presidents trophy.

This followed their recent clash in the 100-Up final where Isgor won the title in a high standard match.

Once again it was Isgro who ruled supreme as he gained the initial break to beat a gallant Stout 21-14.

Isgro will now meet Ken Main in the semi-final, with the winner to play Ray Hanson in the final.


Several members travelled to district tournaments over the past week.

Don Isgro, Ray Hanson, Russell Shawcross and Kevin Humbert enjoyed the conditions at Strahfieldsaye.

Tom Davis, Alan Kauffman and Hanson journeyed to Mathoura for the Triples-Skins and returned home with seven pelts plus two of the four major raffles on the day.

On Friday evening there was another fine roll up for the barbecue and practice.

The missing link in the members lucky draw was Geoff Shawcross.
