Both games were played on the grass green which is noticeably gathering pace.

The team of Dave Perry, Greg Smith and Col Saillard had the unusual result of 2 draws 9/9 and 12/12 whilst 3 teams won both their games.

The very consistent team of Doug Naylor, John Yabsley and Alan Greenhalgh won the day on a massive 58 points (again).

Col Amos won the very popular $20 Myall Bistro voucher.

20 July: Wild westerly winds greeted the 10 die-hard players for Friday Open Pairs today.

The grass green was lighting fast and after about 10 ends of frustrating bowls, with more bowls in the ditch than on the green, players packed it in for the comfort of the clubhouse.

22 July: In contrast to Friday, conditions for the playing of the unfinished final of the Club Major Singles Championship which was originally called off due to heavy rain on 3 June.

In that match between Richard Lee and Jeff Baker, 12 ends were completed with Richard holding a commanding lead 14-4 when play resumed today.

Some great bowls were played on resumption with Jeff slowly closing the gap during the next 13 ends and after 27 ends were played Jeff managed to establish a 6 shot lead.

Richard then put on a spurt of 9 shots to edge in front but at the 33rd it was “game –on” with both players tied on 27.

Jeff had a one shot lead going into what was to be the last end when he unexpectedly dropped a 4 to see Richard claim the Club Championship title for the fourth time.

The final score; Richard 31, Jeff 28.

Congratulations to both players for a wonderful display of precision bowling.

The Club Championship Triples was also decided today with the team of Col Amos, Ron Webster and Barry Drayton being declared the winners.

In other news: The annual end of year pennants bash luncheon will be held Friday 27th July in the Club restaurant.
