Forty-four players faced the starter with the winning teams from both the grass and the synthetic greens taking part in a draw for the money.

Garry Porter, Ron Green and Brian Emmett were successful on the synthetic, whilst a countback was needed to determine the winners on the grass.

It was a fours team of John Payne, Graham Kelly, Lance Atkins and Greg Pearson who landed the prize.

There was a welcome visit from “Mavis” today with an update on some of the rules of bowls.

No problems for Graeme Watkins though, he came up with the correct answers to earn himself a beer.

16 February: The Club Minor Singles competition commenced today with two games being played to trim the field to 16 competitors.

Doug Andrews played Gary Wynne and Col Saillard played Graeme Watkins.

Doug has been a bit of a “dark horse’ and it was anyone’s guess how he would go against Gary who has showed good form in the Club Fours and the Club Minor Pairs.

Gary’s recent form went out the window with Doug in complete command for the whole game. He ran away with it 31-13.


In the remaining game Graeme just could not get into the game as Col powered through winning 31-8.

Sixteen teams will line up next Saturday, 23 February, with some games in the morning and some in the afternoon.
There are some really good players entered for this event and no clear favourite has emerged making for some close, entertaining bowls.

17 February: Twenty-four bowlers turned out today, resplendent in new club colours, for the first of some Pennant trials.

It is great to see plenty of new faces representing our Club for a 2019 season.
