Proud day for Sawtell womenProud day for Sawtell women
By GREG WHITE
THE policy of the New South Wales Women's Bowling Association paying visits to country clubs has been continued with the attendance of vice-president Evely Redaelli at Sawtell last week.
In town to award the No.3 Pennant flag Redaelli has strong links with the Mid North Coastal area.
"While I live on the Central Coast we have a holiday home in Nambucca Heads and the family visit as often as we can," she said.
"There was also a wedding to attend so the timing worked out perfectly."
"It's enjoyable to see old friends and meet new ones."
Along with the pennant presentation the visit doubled up with Presidents Day at Sawtell and two smaller clubs receiving merit pins.
Presidents June Edwards (Dorrigo) and Ruby Armstrong (North Beach) were welcomed by Sawtell's Colleen Turner to the morning tea function.
Redaelli said recognising the achievements of small clubs was important to her organisation.
"Did you know North Beach has never previously received a merit pin?" she asked.
"Having been lucky enough to play there in the past makes it extra special for me to make the award."
Sawtell defeated Nambucca Heads in the District play off for the No.3 pennant before going down to Port Macquarie in the Zone final.
