There was plenty of fun and frivolity ten pin bowling for our Christmas get together at Parramatta Leagues Club. Many thanks to Coleman Greig for sponsoring the event.
The evening began with Michelle Wardle from KPMG sure looking professional as she strapped her wrist in anticipation of a big game. Although it was her colleague and dark horse, Amanda Taylor, who chased Wayne Smith from Toomey Pegg Lawyers through their game only to snag a strike in her last frame and take top spot on the podium for the whole group on the night!
There were no shortage of ‘x marks the spot’ in ANZ’s Scott Baker’s game but the consistency of his nearest rival, Lloyd Gilbert of KPMG, won out in the end. Quiet achievers Leon Zheng faced off against his noisier KPMG colleague, James Horton. While Peter Groeneveld of CNI had some decidedly magic moments including a jaw dropping split pin that suggested underlying ten pin talent.
Wise counsel from Noela McInstosh from ACN was the secret of success for Theresa Teo who was also chief camera person for the evening. Davelcorp’s David Lindfield Seagar cheered everyone on throughout the event which paid off for Libby Roberts who, claiming not to have bowled for a decade, still managed to take out second place in her lane – and pipped yours truly by 1 point!
That’s a wrap for another year, Merry Christmas to our Chamber friends and family and we look forward to a very exciting 2020.
