4 July

A beautiful day for the resumption of the Club Championship Major Singles which had reached the quarter final stage.

I guess it was a day when the pretenders to the championship were eliminated and the stage cleared for the top bowlers in our Club to take charge.

Probably, the only player to hold his head up from this round was David Garcia.

He played some terrific bowls but was eventually beaten by Club Champion, Jeff Baker 31-19.

Peter Gurney continued his winning ways accounting for Greg Brown 31-14.

John Slater got off to a bad start and was never in the game against Ross Barry.

Ross played some beautiful draw bowls and easily won the match 31-11.

Similarly, Rob Young drew a tough opponent in former Club Champion, Dennis Ashbridge and he was defeated, 31-7.

Next Sunday will be a fun day when Ross Barry takes on Peter Gurney and Dennis Ashbridge plays Jeff Baker.

These two games promise to be really ding-dong battles and bowlers are encouraged to be there to view some great bowls.
