The lucky losers were: Glen Reinhardt, Graham Reynolds and Mark Nightingale.
14 March: Round 3 of the Newcastle District Pennant season was played today in some very ordinary weather.
Grade 4 played Carrington at home and managed a clean sweep of their match with all teams having comfortable wins.
The Grade 4 side winning 68-44.
Grade 6 had a bye and the Grade 7 (1) side travelled to Soldiers Point.
At that venue, the Dave Benson four smashed their opposition 33-17 and the Doug Naylor team won 20-17 to set up an overall win by 9 shots 66-57. Great effort!
The Garde 7 (2) side travelled down to Alder Park but before a shot was played the synthetic green became submerged in water.
With conditions deteriorating by the minute the game was called off.
Next week, Grade 4 are away at Valentine, Grade 6 are also away at Redhead, Grade 7 (1) are at home to Cardiff and Grade 7 (2) are home to East Maitland.
All Tea Gardens Dolphin teams are sponsored by First National Real Estate, Hawks Nest.
15 March: It was windy, cool but fine today when three rounds of the Club Major Pairs were played.
John Parkinson and Peter Gurney accounted for Tom Parkinson, (the Sliver Fox), and Daryl Martin 24-14.
Ron Webster and Greg Pearson won an entertaining game against the fast-improving Rob Young and Bruce Murray 23-16 and Geoff Muggleton and Dennis Ashbridge romped home, 27-11, over Col Amos and Mark Hair.
In an earlier match, played during the week, Danny Johnson and Ross Barry defeated Graham Reynolds and Mark Nightingale 25-13.
It was great to see Tom Parkinson back playing the game he loves at his home Club.
Tom is 86 years young and still has spring in his step and a fierce determination to compete.
Good to see you Tom!
More Club Major Pairs this Sunday.
