Long-time Portland bowler Peter Webster has enjoyed the perfect start at his new club City Memorial.
City Gold defeated Mortlake Blue 65-52 at City Memorial in Western District Bowls Division midweek pennant on Tuesday.
Peter is skipper for the side which has won its first three matches.
The experienced bowler explained he and wife Wendy were moving into a new house at Anchor Point Village in Warrnambool.
The duo have good history at City Memorial, despite only just joining the club.
Peter said they won a pairs championship at the Cramer Street venue five years ago.
"We played another couple of Warrnambool people to make the final 15 in the state," he said.
"That was a great honour and something we'll probably never forget."
The couple have been married 54 years.
Peter said he had been playing bowls for about 30 years and Wendy jumped on board about 15 years ago.
Wendy was skipper for City Memorial Green in division one on Tuesday.
Peter most recently played with Portland Bowling Club after he started at Portland RSL Memorial Bowling Club.
He explained he had been involved in management at both clubs as well as chairman at both.
"They're both terrific clubs," he said.
The new City Gold skipper said he felt fortunate to be part of a strong midweek pennant team.
"It's all going well for the club so far this year, which is great," he said.
He's enjoying City's upgraded facility and the opportunities the club presents.
"The competition here is unbelievable because of the demographic of the number of players," he said.
"You come to social bowls here and you're bowling against 102 to 110 people for just a social game of bowls.
"Whereas you're down around the 40s and 50s in Portland."
