After 500ml of rain so far this month the grass green would welcome the chance to recover.
It was the “old and the bold” team of Bob Skewes, Barry Drayton and Ron Webster that won the day with 57 points.
29 June: Considering the fact that the Saturday Pennant competition is still underway, there was a good field contesting the Friday Open format today.
Saturday Pennants has but another two weeks to run and then there will be some focus on Friday Open Pairs.
30 June: The Pelican Pest Control sponsored Grade 4 side played away today at Mayfield West with mixed results.
The Jeff Baker four, that took a bit of a pasting at their last encounter, had a great win winning 27-19, but the remaining teams could not emulate this result and both suffered losses.
Mayfield West winning the match 69-49.
The Pelican Pest Control sponsored Grade 6 side kept their momentum going winning their encounter with a determined Lemon Tree Passage side 66-53.
Two matches were close with the Danny Johnson team being edged out on the last two ends to lose 19-23, and the Anthony Grant four pulling of a great win 18-16.
The Ron James four clinched the win with a commanding 29-14 win.
Next week Grade 4 plays at home against Mayfield and Grade 6 has a bye.
1 July: It was another great bowling day in paradise.
This morning 18 bowlers turned out for 12 ends of triples in the Sunday bowls competition.
After much deliberation a winner was eventually from the team with the highest winning score.
They were; Bev Stephens, Bev Dunn and Sue Morris.
The Lucky Door prize was won by Vaughan and Irena.
Sunday bowlers enjoyed the cuisine of visiting chef Dave Perry.
The Sunday bowls was followed by the first round of the Club Triples Championship with the team of; Ray Sullivan, Mark Hair and Richard Lee taking on Ken Devlin, Ross Barry and Keith Smith in one game and the team of; Vic Garlick, Neville Vaughn and Danny Johnson opposing, Peter King, Peter Cheney and John Slater in the other.
The remaining 8 teams enjoyed a bye.
The Richard Lee side held the lead for most of their match until the penultimate end where they dropped a 7.
This sealed their fate, with the Keith Smith three running out winners 26-22.
In the other match the John Slater three held an early lead 15-4 and retained a slim margin until the 17th end where they conceded an unfortunate 5.
They fought back to regain the lead and held a 1 shot advantage going into the last end.
They held shot in that end however Danny converted to take 2 to win the match 24-23.
A great game!
There should be some great viewing next week with the Grade 4 Pennant side seeking a home ground win on Saturday and the second round of the Club Championship Triples being played on Sunday.
