SOCIAL bowls played on 16 May, one game of Triples and three games of Fours.

On Rink 2 Lynda Richards, Sheril Johnson, Olive McKeown and Pat Baker had a convincing win against Francis Betar, Pam Gilchrist, Lily Smith and Lynne Green 24 v 12.

A similar story on Rink 3 where Bev Dunn played “swinger”, a lead for both sides.

The team consisting of Kerry Faber, Bev Stephens and Karen McPhie (a new skip) scored 25 beating Christine Fossey, Bev Rhodes and Deyonne Page by 14 shots.

The triples game on Rink 4 saw Dale Winter, (who usually plays skip requesting a change of position to being lead), Jill McBride and Karen Green just going down to Lesley Kibble, Anne Mackenzie and Wendy Jones by 3 shots, 16 v 19.
