Angels on Horseback Take Flight for Cause Fun Day Rescheduled Due to Rain

Byline: Widgee News widgeenews@southernphone.com.au

IT was a sight to see about 135 riders setting off from Tura Vale at Woolooga on the 2010 Angel Flight Ride at the weekend.

With some light showers prior to departure, the day improved with riders enjoying the sunshine while admiring our scenic countryside.

Finishing at the Bushman's Bar in Widgee, it was an exceptional day of camaraderie among riders.

It was a great night with a multi-draw raffle and auction raising further funds for Angel Flight. Organisers are pleased with the results and thank sponsors and donors for their support.

Indoor bowls

THE number of players Monday mornings at Widgee Memorial Hall is increasing with the warmer weather. A big welcome back to treasurer Russell, who arrived home from his New Zealand holiday with tales of the continuing tremors after the big quake in Christchurch.

Play was fast and furious with Bruce and Margaret tying for first place with 53 points, followed by David on 48, and Jeanette next with 43. Bruce also won the free game draw.

Some fine shots were played at the association's Championship Rinks last Saturday, in the Gympie club rooms in Graham Road.

Unfortunately Widgee missed by a whisker but the players put in a great effort. Fellow player Brian has been missed and good wishes are sent from all his Widgee friends.

A BIG surprise for Shirley Barwick this week with an impromptu birthday party with cake made by good freind Sylvia Taylor, and frivolity to celebrate her special day, followed during Beading with Marian.

Next week will be a General Meeting at 9.30am.
