Chadstone 1 are secure in top spot but there is an interesting tussle for the next 3 spots in the four and obviously the club Chadstone play in the 1st final 9th March at Chadstone
Chadstone 2 vs Oakleigh was an extremely tough tussle, all rinks decided on the last bowl of the last end – no pressure Chadstone won on the day – winning 3 rinks, end score 84 to 80 on a very difficult green
Chadstone 3 were well beaten by a determined Coatesville who are vying for 4th spot in the ladder with Moorabbin.

Chadstone 2 need more than 14 points to move from 5th to 4th, noting that Oakleigh at 4th are currently 14 points ahead of us.

Chadstone 3 also need more than 14 points to move from 9th to 8th above Armadale 8. Armadale 7 vs Armadale 8. Armadale 7 are vulnerable to losing the top spot to Elwood. Chadstone 3 play South Oakleigh 2. Oakleigh 2 are secure in 3rd spot but it will be a tough game
Vale Peter Wright 15th February – full memorial details will be available from Monday 25 February
Our dear friend Peter passed away Friday evening in hospital after a short battle with cancer. Peter was always a committed club member serving the club for many years. He served as Club Secretary from 2002- 2009 and was also a member of the Mens Selection Committee and was Chairman for a number of years. Peter came to the Club as a novice and he was playing in the top side earlier this year. Each year, with the help of Sue they put out the Club Fixture. Our thoughts and commiserations go to Sue and Peter’s family.
