TO uphold the theme The Year of the Farmer and to recognise the continued support for the bowls classic namely the prestige fours, the Wudinna women bowlers staged a most successful day late last month.

They had a showing of artefacts that had been used by the wives of the farmers in the early days of farming in the local district – cream cans, sewing machines, canisters, lamps, a milk separator were just some of the items in the well presented display.

A spectacular display of roses adorned the clubhouse.

In welcoming the 32 players from many clubs of Eyre Peninsula, club vice-president Diane Rashleigh particularly thanked sponsors Wudinna Foodland.

A criteria for entry into the prestige fours was that at least one player of the team must have been a club champion.

Hence some great bowls were seen to be put down, and the day ended with a close finish.

The team of Aldy Gerschwitz, Glenys McCracken, Ronda Puckridge and Barb Mullan form Kirton Point were the winners with 86 points from Phyl Forbes, Anne Marie Clements, Barb Schaefer, and Anne Grund (Kimba) with 82 points.

The Ceduna team of E. Fitzgerald, M. Nicholls, C. Thomas and J. Bubner finished third with 81 points. They led the field until the last game when they were beaten by the Cummins team skipped by Chris Haymen who scored 79 points.

It was a memorable day for Aldythe Gerschwitz because she had been recognised as having missed only one match in the running of this event over 17 years and had won it three times.

Again this day she had been victorious, and to cap it off she won the raffle of the day.
