Parkes Bowling and Sports Club notes.
By Johnny Perella.

Local team Robert Corbett and Cherie Frame were commanding winners of the Mixed Pairs Tournament played over the weekend.
Playing great bowls they careered away from the field and finished on 5w+ 85 winning by 53 shots from the only other team to win all five games I. & J. Hurley from Hazelbrook who finished on 5w+32.
In third place on 4w+10 was J. & V. Brown from Young: and in fourth place was a local pair Steve Ryan and Rhona Went 4w-2, rounding out the prize money in fifth spot was P & B Purdie from Corrimal 31/2 w +46.
Thursday bowls.
Not a huge field but there were still some quality results in the seven games of pairs played.
The main battle was a very narrow 19-17 win for Geoff Freeman and Norm Keane against Col Hayward and Bernie Coleman, Geoff and Norm pick up a six on the last end.
Terry Hetherington and Ron Murray just held off a late challenge from Mick Craft and Mike Parkes before winning 23-21.
Rob Tinker and Mike Valentine were in fine touch with a 19-13 score line against Ray Jones and Brian Collins.
John Ward and Gordon Dickson always looked the goods and finished with a handsome 25-18 win over Wally Austin and Chris Dunn.
In other games John Corcoran and Greg Davies was no match for Steve Ryan and Wally Austin going down 11-26.
Colin Mudie and John Hodge def Ron Hornery and Ron Fisher 28-15 and with the biggest win of the day Greig Ball and Tom Cole overwhelmed Ted Wright and John Edwards 29-14.
Looking after mufti social this week will be Keith MacRae and Greig Ball.
Saturday Bowls.
Three games of pairs and one triples were played in Saturday afternoon social bowls, not a bad field considering the mixed pairs was also on.
Most exciting was the triples game in which Dave Worthington, Ken Walsh and Tom Cole rattled home for a 29-28 win over Ray Jones, Gordon Dickson and S. Rimington.
John Ward and Joe Crowley were well beaten by Ben Townsend and Ryan Mc Luckie 32-17.
Kevin Hynds and Mike Valentine showed great form with a 29-21 win against John Carr and Merv Hennock.
Huge winners were Colin Mudie and Mike Parkes as they completely out gunned Bruce Orr and Ron Fisher 31-6.
Social bowls this Saturday will be in the capable hands of Graham Barby and Geoff Freeman.
Sunday bowls.
The blue section of the State club challenge got under way at the weekend and our side was at home to Dubbo City.
In a very entertaining afternoon of bowls the games finished all square with one win each and a draw in the other.
Bruce Orr went down 18-31 in the singles and the pair’s combination Of Greg Fisher and Mick Craft finished 14 all with their opponents.
The fours side of Terry Hetherington, Paul Townsend, Mike Parkes and Ron Murray carried the day with a fine 19-12 victory.
As these notes goes to press the annual general meeting will have been run and won, hopefully with all positions filled.
There should be some new faces on both the Club and bowls boards,
We would like to wish all the best to everyone who has put their hands up and taken on a position, and hope all goes well in their endeavours to make this club run smoothly and efficiently as ever.
While on the club scene the members badge draw is moving along nicely and has reached $1100, a tidy sum for a lucky member who is present for the Friday night draw.
