Peter Charkiewicz, president of the 77-year-old club, said the men�s midweek and Saturday teams played in a total of eight divisions, with four teams finishing top of their respective ladders.

The ladies� midweek and Saturday teams played in a total of six divisions, with two teams finishing top of their respective ladders.

Several teams finished second on their ladders.

Most of the club�s teams were promoted, and none relegated.

�In total, the men�s teams had five promotions in midweek and Saturday competitions, while the ladies� teams had two promotions in the midweek and Saturday competitions,� he said.

�The diligence, consistency and hard work of both the men�s and ladies� selection committees led by respective captains Albert Pedrotti and Maureen Dalton, the influx of experienced bowlers from other clubs around the Perth region, and the persistence and excellent bowling of all the bowlers had enabled the club�s climb,� Charkiewicz said.

The club also played in Pennant finals, with the men winning two flags and the ladies winning one.

�In total, the club had seven promotions and won three flags � a fantastic result in anybody�s language,� Charkiewicz said.
