G'Day, and welcome to this weeks news from the Bowlie.
PENNANTS. Three pennant grades played on the weekend, with mixed results. The No 5's had its home double header against Peak Hill, and had a 6/0 and 5/1 win, this will ensure that the fives go to Dubbo for the Zone playoffs, whick will be held on the weekend of 16/17 June, in the morning game Parkes played like men possessed, winning 6/0, with a massive aggregate of 106/36. In the afternoon Peak Hill started off like last week, and we thought we would get done again, but the boys picked up and went on to a big win, well done everyone.
The 7's played Condo at home, but unfortunatly went down 5/1, this win puts Condo in front in the round robin at the moment, but there are still two games to go, so we are still hoping for the best.
The 6's went to Condo, and had a close win 3.5 to 2.5, In an extremely close match, Terry Hetherington's team picked up a six on the last end to win his rink, but more importingly, squared the aggregate 58/58, this unusual situation ment that the score for the aggregate was shared, 1.5 to 1.5, resulting in the unusual score line.
The 6's are also very much in line to progress to the Zone playoff's in Dubbo also on 16/17 June.
SOCIAL BOWLS. Thursday saw 24 bowlers on the greens, with the winners being Keith MacRae and Gary McPhee, runners up John Corcoran and Greg Davies.
