G'Day, and welcome to this weeks news from the Bowlie.
Our team of Tom Casey, Mick Went and Flip Fleidner represented our Club at Coonabarabran in the Zone 4 Triples. After a tough lead up game they went into the Final against a powerfull Nyngan Team but unfortunately lady luck was not on their side and they went down. However to finish runners up in the Zone Triples is a great achievement. Congratulations go to Flip and his team on a great effort.
On the weekend the final of the Major Triples was played and in a very one sided game the team of Peter McPhee, Mark Dwyer and Joe Davies had a big win over Mick Valentine, Gary McPhee and Ron Hornery 32/5.So congratulations to the 2015 Major Triples winners, Team Davies.
Also played on the day was the Semi Finals of the Minor Triples where Greg Townsend, Peter McPhee and Steve Ryan had a big win over Wally Austin, Steve Turner and Wilbur Harris, 34/12.
