Merrylands RSL will be returning to Bowral on Sunday, October 13 to play in an annual match. This will involve ladies and men's bowlers.
Last years match was washed out, so if you stop and think it's been a stretching, long way since we have had a good rainfall .
Ironically as much as we all like our bowls ,we badly need the rain, so who knows what October 13 may bring on the day.
