On Thursday, October 9th 2014 the Whittlesea U3A Carpet Bowls members competed for the City of Whittlesea along with other local Seniors Clubs and Retirement Villages in a Tournament against The City of Banyule at Epping Memorial Hall.
A great day was had by all involved including lots of spectators. The day’s activities started at 9.00am and finished at 3.00pm with the presentations. There were 6 teams from City of Whittlesea and 5 teams from City of Banyule. The U3A team consisted of Michael Chetcuti, Pat Lobley , Janice Scerri, Wayne Colbert and Ron Gorely.
The Tournament was very competitive, but in the end came down to Whittlesea winning the match by just one game 14 to 13. U3A won 1 round out of a possible 5 rounds, so we made a decisive contribution to the results. Congratulations U3A team.
Each participant received an inaugural medal which was nice. The best team received trophies and Whittlesea were presented with the perpetual cup. Our thanks to Con Constantinou Senior Citizens Community Development Officer, City of Whittlesea for making the day a great success.
