Today there were five teams winning both games, an indication that the competition is heating up with some very interesting games and ends.

The Noel Jackson team recorded a creditable +50; Bill Heylbut’s team and Danny Johnson teams topped that with a +53.

Not to be outdone, the Neville Vaughn “four” recorded a +55 but was edged out on a countback by the team of Peter King, Peter Cheney and John Slater who took away the money.

Interestingly, the Noel Jackson’s team, fuelled by jelly beans, jagged a 9 pointer in their second game and Max Stephens’ side also achieved a 9 followed 5 ends later with an 8.

Still not good enough to get the money!

The Myall Bistro voucher went to the lucky winner John Yabsley.

25 May: Open Friday Pairs was played today with 17 players taking part.

26 May: In the Newcastle District Saturday Pennant competition played today, the Pelican Pest Control sponsored Grade 4 side played at home against East Maitland whilst the Pelican Pest Control Grade 6 side also played East Maitland at East Maitland.

Both sides had disappointing results with just one Grade 4 team managing a close win over their opponents.

The team of Ken Devlin, Col Amos, Mark Hair and Jeff Baker managed to scrape home 22-21.

The remaining teams recorded losses and the Master Board was won by East Maitland 67-49.

The Grade 6 side were bought back to earth with a dull thud in their match against the might of the juggernaut that is East Maitland.

All teams were out-bowled significantly on a sluggish surface with the best performed team being the Noel Jackson four which included Gary Wynne, Graham Kelly, and David Perry.

East Maitland recorded an easy win 81-40

The huge East Maitland Club recently joined Zone 2 from Zone 6 and they are completely dominating the Newcastle competition in all grades.

Next week Grade 4 play away at Raymond Terrace and the Grade 6 side play at home against Hexham.

27 May: The great weather continued today and 23 players enjoyed the camaraderie of Sunday Bowls.

A drawer from the winning cards resulted in a win by the team with the largest margin.

This was the team of Irena McKenzie, Bev Dunn and Pam Gilchrist.

The organisers would like to thank chef Merv Mills.

Conditions were ideal for play on the immaculate grass green for the semi-finals of the Club Major Singles Championship.

Peter Cheney continues his good form taking on the 2013 Singles Champion, Jeff Baker in a great match.

Peter went down 25-31 but will learn an enormous amount from his experience.

Jeff will continue to the final to be played next Sunday.

In the other game two champions faced off in a game of precision bowls that was a delight to watch.

Sean Mearrick went into the game with a badly damaged left shoulder but played superbly to take the match right up to three-time champion Richard Lee.

The match went to 36 ends before Richard powered away in the closing stages.

He won 31-23.

A great final to watch next week with Richard in superb form determined to add another title to his impressive CV.
