HERBERT and Mandy Balzer finally met Clive Edkins and Jack Drew in the semi-
finals pairs championships.

Both were on top form and had Clive and Jack struggling all the way.
Well played.

Now it's a family final with Herbert and Mandy meeting mom and dad, Sannie and Gerhard Balzer in the finals.

A good tip is to try to get your first ball past the jack because there is to way that little creature is going backwards.

The AGM was a recovery of note and well attended with lots of lovely eats to enjoy.

Thanks to all who supported it and well done to Wessel Pretorious who was unanimously elected president for the 2016,

Details of events, fun days, matches etc., will be published soon.
