My Afternoon at the Footy....

So, I decided that I would go to the local footy and catch up with a few mates that I play lawn bowls with during the summer. Down to the Eastern Oval I went to watch the clash between Redan and East-Point in the Ballarat Football League. What I saw was a very entertaining game played in trying wet and cold conditions with Redan coming away with the victory. I had such a good time, I'm going to sign up for a membership with the Lions for season 2014. Looking forward to going to more games in the future.

I am only on my L plates. Played night comp last year on Tuesday nights over the summer. Enjoyed it and learned a bit. Have been playing night owls social bowls for around 6 years on a Wednesday night. A few ales and a great night to chill out, roll the arm and catch up/meet with a few of the other bowlers.
Eighth spot is still up for grabs and any of the following can still make it
9th North Ballarat 24
10th Sandringham 22
11th Essendon 20
12th Frankston 20
13th Coburg Tigers 16

Nice work on winning the flag Raven....they are hard to win. Vfa, good luck learning the ropes at Blackburn....always been a pretty strong club there, so am sure there'll be plenty of knowledgeable heads to give you advice. Remember to ignore most of it ok ;-)
