Three teams went through winning both games.

A thank-you to Ron Rowe and Daryl Martin playing the pairs games where Daryl and Ron were successful with a plus 54 points.

The other games resulted in Peter Jones, Ken Devlin, Col Amos and Mark Hair, on 56 points, winning the day over Bruce Everitt, Paul Carter and Brian Emmett on 55.

The Myall Bistro voucher went to Greame Watkins, thanks to Jason for your continued support which is appreciated.

4 May: The start of the delayed Pennant season has seen a drop in numbers for the Friday Open Pairs with Pennant players preserving their energies for their Saturday rounds.

5 May: In the second round of Pennants played today both the Pelican Pest Control sponsored Grade 4 and Grade 6 sides fought it out in the local derby against Karuah.

Grade 4 played at Karuah and despite the Mark Hair team winning one match, the remaining teams hit too many walls in the concluding stages to win the Master Board.

Karuah won 64-45.

The Grade 6 side, playing at home were also disappointing with the match even with each team having just five ends to play.

Tea Gardens lost their momentum and Karuah ran out easy winners at the end.

The final score Karuah 68, Tea Gardens 47.

Next Saturday Grade 4 plays Mayfield West at home whilst Grade 6 plays away at Lemon Tree Passage.

Go the Dolphins!

The beautiful Autumn weather continued with 26 players attending Sunday Bowls in games of Triples and Fours played over 12 ends.

By all reports it was a very competitive morning with 6 new players coming to try their hand.

With a new crop of coaches in training it should be good to give the new players some tips.

Winners on the day were; Karen McPhie, Dot Montgomery and Rob Young.

The runners-up on a count back were the team of: Frank Dunn, Dorothy Thompson, Dianne Kiss, Paul Bell.

There will be no bowls next Sunday, Mother’s Day.
