Tea Gardens Men’s Bowling Club
20 July. A steady drizzle put paid to any Wednesday Nominated Triples today.
22 July. After the great introduction to an “open” format for Friday Jackpot Pairs last week, only 12 bowlers chose to play today in nice warm conditions. Surprising!
I believe some bowlers are away and the lady bowlers are still completing their Club Championship Fours.
This may have contributed to the poor field.
The winners on the lowest margin were; Dale Winter and Graeme Watkins.
The jackpot was not won and will now stand at $420.00 for next week.
A semi-final round of the Club Triples Championship was played today with the team of; Bob Skewes, Ray Sullivan and Mark Hair taking advantage of the great conditions to play; Richard Lee, Paul Syron and Sean Mearrick.
In their previous round the Mark Hair team overcame some very stiff opposition to reach the semi-final.
They disposed of the strong Steve Pell unit 24-13 and it was felt that if they could retain that form they would be in with a chance against the fancied Sean Mearrick side.
It was not to be!
They went down 12-27.
23 July. Conditions were atrocious for bowls today with the second semi-final of the Club Triples Championship being played.
Anthony Grant’s side which included Bruce Everitt and Col Amos, were opposed to Peter Gurney, Bob Weir and Alan Greenhalgh.
With the conditions being what they were, this game did not reach any ‘dizzy’ heights.
It was a hard slog for all the players and they deserve great credit it seeing the match through.
Alan’s side securing a place in the final with a 25-16 win.
With the temperature hovering on a bracing 12 degrees today 26 hardy Sunday Introduction to Bowls players turned up to play. Good on them all!
The winners on the day were; Bob Liubinskas, Kingsley Joliffe and Linda Richards.
The lucky losers were; John Atherton, Denis Wilberforce and Frank Zumbo.
