The Association were forced to abandon their Winter Competition due to COVID-19 restrictions.
A shortened Summer Competition was completed with Grippers, consisting of Mick Wagner, Linda Kappos and Lou Kappos, emerging victorious in a tough Grand Final over Charolais, represented by Sean Jenkins, Peter Jaccoud, Leon Rust and Sharnie Roberts.
The Association also remembered two popular members who tragically passed away during the year.
Michael Wood died in January after a short illness. Mick Wagner was the first winner of the 'Michael Wood Award for the player with the best winning percentage'.
Roy Barlow was killed in a canyoning accident in September. The 'Roy Barlow Player's Player Award' was named in his honour and voted on by all players. The inaugural award was shared jointly by Sharnie Roberts and Pauline Wellfare.
The Winter Competition for 2021 is set to commence in early February.
The competitions are played on Wednesday nights at the Old Trades Hall (down the lane next to Waratah Dental in Railway Parade).
Informal practice nights are held most Monday nights. Interested players should contact Pauline Wellfare (0432265624) for more information.
