John McArthur is having a great time of it lately.

Then on Sunday he played Winter League and won a category prize with 44 pts.
Lions Annual Christmas Appeal:
This year our Lions Club Week will run from Monday 4th to Sunday 10th December. During that week all competition money collected will go directly to the Christmas Appeal. At a special awards night held in October by the Lions Club reference was made to the extraordinary amount of money raised by the Gold Coast for the Annual Christmas Appeal, the amount is in the region of €30,000. It is indeed a major tribute to the members of the Club who always show their generosity and willingness to contribute to good causes.
