“Winners are Grinners.” After 4 tough rounds, Geoff Cooper won the final of the Clubs Vet’s Singles.

Geoff says “it’s been a long time between drinks, but I’m over the moon with the win. Congrats to my opponents with all games played in good spirits. I played Les Baker in the final and I believe I was the only Arm Bowler in the event. It’s  my first Club Championship since having to use the arm.”
