5 July

The weather smiled upon us today and a field of 43 enjoyed a great day of bowls.

Two top Triples teams contested first place with the team of Ken Devlin, Col Amos and Mark Hair just edging out the “three leads” side of John Younghusband, Ross Barry and Peter Gurney who filled second spot.

Fabulous Friday Open Jackpot Pairs was played today under a sunny sky.

Twenty players participated.

The Club welcomed Rian Lane, a visitor from Tasmania.

The winners with the lowest margin won the money.

They were John Slater and Dave Perry.

Ray Prigg and Henk Faber won by too many had to contend with second.

Five winning margins were in contention for the jackpot.

It was not won.

8 July   

A semi-final of the Club Triples Championship was played today with the other game being deferred to next Saturday due to Zone commitments by some players.

The two teams competing for a place in the finals were Ron Green, Steve Jones and Jeff Baker and Ross Barry, Ken Devlin and Keith Smith.

At the halfway mark there was nothing between the two sides but from the 12th end Keith’s team gradually drew away to hold a 5 shot lead with two ends to play.

They consolidated this on the last end with a 4 and ran out winners 22-13.

They will face the winner of next Saturday’s game where the powerful Sean Mearrick side take on a determined Leigh Hunt combination.

The Final will be played next Sunday with play commencing at 1.00 pm.

Should be a cracker of a game.
