TUESDAY 1 August 2017: Today, social bowls was played as well as four bowlers were competing to gain entry to the Newcastle District Annis Young Consistency Competition to be held on the 9 October.
The object of the game is to draw as close to the Jack as possible and score points as follows: 4 points for the closest bowl, 3 points for the next closest, 2 points for the next and 1 point for the fourth closest.
The Jack is placed on a washer and if it is moved during play it is replaced on to the washer.
The first player to reach 150 is the winner.
