GEORGE BOWLING NEWS - The Prostate Cancer Foundation of South Africa hosted a special day at the George Bowling Club to commemorate prostate cancer month (September).
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting men throughout the world. Sr Liezl Kellerman, community mobiliser for the Cansa George Care Centre, visited the club and gave various facts concerning prostate cancer and research in that field.
All the men that attended the occasion were required to wear a tie and to keep it on during play. The women players who participated also wore ties in support of the men.
Each player donated R20, which was handed to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of South Africa.
After enjoying a breakfast served by the ladies of the club, three games of pairs were played. Due to the inclement weather, all three games were limited to six ends each with the teams being randomly drawn for each game. Each player carried his/her score over to determine the ultimate winner of the day with the highest individual score.
The winner of the day, with a score of 29 (for) and 4 against, was Tys Pringle.
