Here's the latest from the Bowlie.
Thursday Bowls
Twenty six bowlers, including six visitors from Queanbeyan and Melbourne, enjoyed an afternoon of social bowls in pleasant weather conditions. Five games of pairs and one triples match were played.
In the triples game Les Kent, Bob Freeman and Ted Wright led throughout to defeat Bill Stairs, Gladrin Sun and Ray Jones 23 – 14. Colin Woods and Ron Hornery had a comfortable win over Martin Tighe and Peter Stairs 23 to 13.
A close match between Bruce Deland and Colin Mudie against Graham Barby and John Ward saw the scores locked together at 9 all after eleven ends. Graham and John scored 5 shots on the fourteenth end to give them a winning break and went on to a 23 to 20 victory. Jim Blake and Fay Berry played top bowls to convincingly defeat Margaret O’Connor and Greg Howlett 25 to 5.
John Carr and Warren Bevan got a flying start to lead Bev Stairs an Arthur Corbett 9 to 0 after four ends and continued on their merry way to win 27 to 13. George Bradley and Colin Hayward had a good game against Rob Irving and Allan Berry leading 15 to 13 after 13 ends. George and Colin finished the stronger winning 26 to 16. It was a good way to celebrate your 80th birthday George!
