Weekend Pennants: Post sectional finals were held on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September. Just 3 teams involved in this Final Tea Gardens, Lambton Park and Soldiers Point. The following members of our club all bowled in this weekend Pennant Team Robyn Beaumont, Jeanette Emmett, Lynne Green, Liz Kelly, Karen McPhie, Kayelene Pearson, Lynda Richards, Maynie Roberts and Robyn Webster great bowling ladies, to get TGWBC to the finals.
Lambton Park lost to Soldiers Point in the morning. Our ladies had a bye Saturday morning, unfortunately they had a loss in the afternoon to Lambton Park. A win on Sunday v Soldiers Point meant that the winner of this competition would be decided by margins, Tea Gardens were Runners Up, Soldiers Point the winners. A great effort by all our members who participated in this event.
Good luck to our 3 teams competing in NDWBA Spring Carnival, 16th, 18th & 19th September. The semi final of the Open Consistency Competition will be held on Tuesday 24th September and the final on Thursday 26th September.
