Windy Conditions For Pennants
Published by The Rookie in Bowls Notes • 3/26/2018 2:36:52 PM
Here’s the latest from the Bowlie.
Not a good day for the Pennants teams this week. The threatening rain did not eventuate but the wind was strong and all three sides lost their matches.
The 2’s travelled to Cowra and were defeated 9-1. Mick Went’s side had a win 22-20 But Brett Frames team lost 16-22 and Garry Carberry’s team went down 24-12 for an aggregate loss, 50-64.
Playing at home against Parkes Railway, the 5’smanaged to tie the scores 55 all but lost on two of the three rinks to go down 5.5 points to 4.5 points. John Ward’s team had a win 22-17 but in two close games, Col Mudies team lost 17-19 and Warwick Parker’s team lost 16-19.
At Parkes Railway Club the 7’s suffered a heavy loss going down 0-10 and losing the aggregate score, 39-74. Keith MacRae’s team played well but went down 17-21. Steve Mills’s team were beaten 14-24 and George Boatswain’s side went down 8-29.
All sides get the Easter weekend off to recover and hopefully return to the winners lists in two weeks.
Club Championships.
In the only Major Pairs match played this week Brett Frame had a comfortable win against Col Mudie 31-16.
Two Major Pair’s matches were played. Mark Dwyer and Peter McPhee had a win against John Davies and Graham Barby, 22-14 and in the other match Mick and Paul Went had a convincing win, 32-11 against Greg Townsend and Greg Howlett.
Thursday, March 22.
No bowls were played due to the rain.
Saturday, March 24.
Both greens were in use on Saturday when twenty-six Social players joined the ten players engaged in Championship matches.
In the closest Pairs game of the day Arthur Corbett and Rose Howlett played well in the early ends and after sixteen ends were leading George Boatswain and Maureen Baille 20-10. George and Maureen found form to win the last five ends but fell just short of victory going down 17-20.
Results of other Pairs matches were;
John Carr and Rob Irving defeated Keith MacRae and Ted Wright 21-16.
Geoff Freeman and Joe Crowley were too good for Steve Ryan and Greg Huggins, 20-13.
Rob Tinker and Ron Hornery proved too strong for John Ward and Ray Jones, 28-19.
Steve Mills and John Dunn had a good win against Vic McGlashin and Bill Skinner, 25-12.
The Triples match turned out to be the closest game of the day. Bruce Orr, Les Kent and Martin Tighe started well and after three ends lead Graham Dixon, Jim Blake and Gordon Dickson, 6-0. By the tenth end Graham’s team had taken the lead 11-10 and it wasn’t until the seventeenth end that Bruce’s team regained the lead 17-16 and then went on to win three of the last four ends to run out winners 20-18.
The Winning Rink went to Steve Mills and John Dunn and the Runner-up prize went to Rose Howlett and Arthur Corbett.
Twilight Bowls.
On the final night for the year, the threat of more rain kept some of the teams at home but we had five rinks in play.
In a close match, We Wreck ‘em ‘N’ We Fix ‘em just held on to beat the High Rollers, 14-12.
Three Amigos scored five shots on the last end to defeat Rebelle 13-7.
The “J” third of JCK joined with Guy Ellery to defeat C&K by a comfortable margin.
Casey Surveying also had a comfortable win against Happy Wanderers.
Central West Glass were leading Loopy Loppers 13-4 and one the final end scored one shot but (according to the score card) on the same end Loopy Loppers somehow scored ten shots and the score card reads 14 all – or did some-one “doctor” the score card.
A great end to a great season and thanks to everybody that had a hand in organising the games and preparing the suppers. A special thanks to Graham Barby and Mark Dwyer who filled in so well when Tom Furey and Bob Riseborough were not able to be there on Thursday.
Hope to see you all back again (and new teams will always be welcome) when we recommence the Twilight Bowls in October.
Coming Event.
Social Bowls will be played on Easter Monday, April 2 and all members are invited to take part, male and female.
There is a sheet available at the club to register single entries or just ring in before 12-30 on the day. Pair’s teams will be drawn out of a hat.
Joyce and Rob Irving have sponsored the $200 prize money and the prize winners will also be drawn out of a hat or on the number machine). Many thanks to Joyce and Rob for their donation.
