Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #1617-22

Week of 28 November

Because of the large number of members engaged with the harvest, we held a bowls and pizza night this week.  Nine members showed up on the night and enjoyed some social bowls and pizza cooked by the Sport & Rec Club staff.  The favourite pizza on the night was the ham & pineapple, followed closely by the supreme.  The big surprise of the night was Deadeye Glassford, who allegedly had never played lawn bowls before but made the winning shot for his side on the very last bowl of the night.  A good time was had by all, who left the club fully satiated.


Bingo – Don’t forget

Grahame is putting together the roster for bingo for the next year.  If you have a preference to be rostered on for a particular month, or if you know that you won’t be available during certain months, please let Grahame know now.


The Lighter Side

Say what?

If you understand English, press 1.  If you do not understand English, press 2. – Recording on an Australian tax helpline.

I bought one of those CDs to teach you Spanish in your sleep.  During the night, the CD skipped, and now I can only stutter in Spanish – Steven Wright.





The puzzler

What number comes next in the diagonal sequence below?



Answer to last week’s Puzzler:

The missing word was “htarw” (“wrath” spelled backwards).   The other words in the list were six of the seven deadly sins, all spelled backwards.
