Play in the usual Wednesday Nominated Triples started a little late as the weather was looking a little threatening.
The overcast probably put some players off, however 38 bowlers lined up to play 20 ends which resulted in 5 games of Triples and 1 game of Fours.
That same name again cropped up in the winners’ circle.
Greg Pearson’s team of Bill Bridges and Lance Atkins won a count back with 35 points from Graham Kelly, Henry Dallas and Col Saillard.
