On Thursday 8th November the semi final of the Novice Consistency Competition was played. Social bowlers decided not to play due to the weather. The temperature was 17 degrees Celsius (felt like 12 degrees), showers and very windy conditions. The winds were SSW with gusts up to 35km/h. The competitors in the competition bowled well in such adverse conditions. On Rink 2 Jean Glover did battle against Jan Coomer. Jan bowled extremely well for a “new bowler” but Jean was too strong, 153 v 107. On Rink 4 Francis Betar v Bette Saillard. Bette held the lead by 12 shots in the early stages of this contest, but Francis managed to even things up and gained a narrow lead by the 12th end. Then it was neck to neck 40 all, 50 all gradually Francis took control and claimed victory 151 v 119. Great bowling by all competitors. Jean and Francis will face each other in the final of this event on Tuesday 13th November.
Thanks to Bev Dunn and Judi Polak for marking. Prior to play Club President Robyn Webster congratulated Dorothy Thompson on being a member of TGWBC for 30 years and presented her with a Certificate. Birthday greetings to Jo Younghusband.
Congratulations to our Newcastle District representative bowlers Kayelene Pearson and Robyn Beaumont. These two ladies bowled in the annual Rose Bowl Competition (NDWBA v Central Coast District), held at Soldiers Point on Friday 9th November. Newcastle had wins on all 7 Rinks, 173 v 104. A fabulous result for NDWBA.
