Fri. 18 May -  In SWGA much controversy surrounded the postponing of round 3 (Apollo Bay vs. Lara at Torquay) due to bad weather.  Some matches on either team had to be forfeited as contenders were unable to play another date.  Apollo Bay’s hero was Jenny McKeon who played the decider match on 24th May- which she won on the 18th hole giving Apollo Bay a 3/2 win. The next pennant round, played at the Sands Apollo Bay defeated Torquay 3/2 with wins going to Vicki Hannah, Jenny McKeon and Stacey Thomas. Unfortunately this was not enough to win the whole competition, but congratulations to the team for their wonderful effort.
