Midweek 23 November Ballan played Beaufort (4) on an overcast day. After being close all day it was Ballan that held onto a 4 shot win. Jan Conroy (s) rink tied while the rink of Grant Stirling (s) won by 4 shots.
Division 3 Saturday 27 November played a home game against Smeaton Bowls Club. It was difficult conditions due to the wind but the game was close between most rinks. In the end it was the win by the rink of Rick Sloan, Scott McConnell, Chris Love and David O’Hanlon (s) by 31 shots that got Ballan over the line to win by 30 shots.
Division 8 had their first game of the season thanks to a number of new members and played against Sebastopol Bowls club at home. Again it was a very close and entertaining game with the result not know until the final ends. Unfortunately both the Ballan skippers of Janine Jensen and Gary Cornel went down to the same score (18-19) therefore losing by 2 shots overall. Great effort by all.
Division 7 had a bye.
