South West District Reserve Pairs The final of the South West District Reserve pairs was played on Saturday morning at our club. Wally Chater and Greg Field (Coota Ex Services) defeated Arthur Ward and Charlie Willis (C.C.C) with a score of 23 to 13.

Our bowlers Craig Phillis and Chris Hocking were forced to forfeit after winning their first match, because they did not double up Saturday afternoon, as they were not aware they had to, due to not receiving an email. Bad luck boys!
