We had a great showing at our Annual Fall Gathering on Friday October 12 and Saturday October 13th. Three games were played on the Friday (Scrabble and Cribbage at the Elk's Hall and 5-pin Bowling at Mad Trappers Alley in Riverdale). On Saturday our members went out to the Canada Games Centre to take part in Pickleball, Carpet Bowling and Floor Shuffleboard.

Here are the results from Saturday's games:
