Saturday August 9
The semi-finals of the Minor Singles were completed in near perfect weather conditions. The results were:
Doug Naylor defeated John Lawson 31-24 and Bob Foster defeated Alan Greenhalgh 31-25 to set up a Naylor / Foster final. Both games were very entertaining and a credit to the players.
Sunday 10 August
The usual Introduction to Bowls competition was held with 34 bowlers and prospective bowlers competing. The winners were:
Harry Kennedy, Jim Woods and Danny Johnson. The runners-up being the fours team of Sue Haigsworth, Pressey Swadling, Bruce Everett and Neil Montgomery.
Club Minor Singles
In the main event of the day, the Club Minor Singles, between Doug Naylor and Bob Foster, was played on the grass, (which is running nice and true at a slick 16.5-17secs).
Doug settled in quickly and led 5-1 at end 5 but once Bob found his line and length on his preferred long ends, Doug knew he was in for a fight. The final score, favouring Bob 31-10 does not indicate the quality of the bowls played by both players.
It was a case of déjà vu for Doug, being runner-up for the second year in a row.
