Tuesday 16th Oct: A great day of bowling. The final of the Club Championship Minor Pairs Competition was contested Bev Rhodes and Lynne Green v Pam Gilchrist and Christine Fossey. I guess it would be true to say Bev and Lynne had control of this final from beginning to end. They held at 10 shot lead at completion of the 5th end, 19 shots at 11 ends finally winning by 17 shots, 29 v 12. Both teams bowled superbly but Bev and Lynne obviously were too strong a combination on the day. Thanks to Kathie Rimmer, Jo Younghusband, Dale Winter and Ingrid Luck for your help. Format for play for social bowlers was a game of Triples and a game of Fours. Welcome to new bowler Jan Coomber who bowled with Ingrid Luck, Karen Green and Dale Winter. Unfortunately this team lost to Jeanette Emmett, Dorothy Thompson, Dawn May and Elizabeth Kelly 25 v 8. A close game on the next Rink. Lynda Richards, Jill McBride and Pat Baker were leading by 2 shots until the last end when victory was snatched from them by Dawn May, Sandra Leisemann and Karen McPhie who gained 5 shots on the 18th end, 19 v 16. Winners on the day with the lowest score were Dawn, Sandra and Karen. Double celebrations for Karen who won the raffle. Thanks to Myall Bistro and Café for donating our raffle prize. No bowls for Thursday 18th October.
