Some endurance was also required as bowlers would play nearly 50 ends over the day in all the bowling disciplines.

It was a tough day also for the lesser teams as they tried to dent the might of the teams featuring
“Marquee” players.

The results were not unexpected as the strong teams prevailed and took the first two places.

The team of; John Bilby, Mark Nightingale, Graham Reynolds and Brian Emmett finished first whilst the fancied team of; Lance Atkins, Tom Short, Greg Pearson and Dennis Ashbridge finished second.

Hats off to the team of; Kevin Barbie, Bob Weir, Barry Goode and Col Saillard who finished third!

There were other prizes for Best 4’s team, Best triples team, Best pairs and Best singles player along with 5 random draw prizes.

The organisers would like to thank the markers, cooks and others who assisted on the day.

Special thanks to RSL LifeCare for their very welcome sponsorship!

In other news: The grass green will be unavailable for 6 – 8 weeks due to yearly maintenance.

The Committee advised that as from Wednesday 20 November, and for the duration of the maintenance period, the first 12 triples teams will be guaranteed a start and names after those on the nomination form may get a start.

Teams of 4 may need to be made to accommodate those other players.

The last day of organised bowls for this year will be the 18th December.

A lunch will be provided with details to be advised by the 1th December.

More Pennant players are required for the 2020 season so as to allow the Club to field three teams. We need more pennant players for 2020 to be able to field 3 teams.

Members are advised to indicate their interest as soon as possible.
