NDWBA Pennant Season 2021 is now completed, the Post Sectional Finals were contested at Soldiers Point Bowling Club on Tuesday 13 and Thursday 15 April.

Congratulations to our Grade 4 Blue side, on winning their section and making it to the Finals.

There were 3 sections in Grade 4, hence the 3 finalists were TGWBC, Lemon Tree Passage, (LTP) and Merewether.

On Tuesday morning, LTP played against Merewether, result of this contest LTP 4 points and Merewether 1.

Our ladies went into battle against LTP in the afternoon, both teams bowled brilliantly and gained 5 points.

LTP now removed from the equation to be winners but still in with a chance to be Runners Up.

Unfortunately despite going out to bowl with “high hopes”, Thursday was to be a different story for our ladies both our teams were defeated.

Merewether gained 5 points, their total now 6 points, winning the Final and the Flag.

Our Grade 4 Blue side Runners Up a great effort coming 2nd in a field of 17.

Well done to all our bowlers who played in the Pennant games, you are a credit to our Club as are all our members who “held the fort” back home.

Many thanks to the men from TGMBC who umpired for us and to Kathie Rimmer for being Controlling Body/Umpire.

Tuesday 13 April: Social bowls played a game of Triples and a game of Pairs.

Francis Betar, Dawn Jones and Pam Gilchrist held a 9 shot lead by the 6th end against Sheila Rattray, Irene Roberts and Dawn May, but Dawn’s team made a magnificent comeback eventually just losing by 2 shots 16 v 14.
