Early morning proceedings saw a fabulous turnout of 37 players for Sunday bowls.

There were a few fresh players scattered among them and I am sure they enjoyed their day.

Big things are happening with Sunday bowls so watch this space.

The winners with the lowest winning score were Chrissy Buddle, Deb Gardiner, and Geoff Page.

Many players stayed on to watch the start of the Club Minor Pairs Championship.

Rick Islaub and Tony Butler are taking on Dave Garcia and Rob Young.

Rick and Tony established an early lead which they continued to consolidate as the game progressed.

They eventually won 22-11.

Congratulations to all who participated and well done to the finalists for an entertaining game.

This is the first Championship for Rick and Tony and I predict it will not be their last.
