Major Singles Final : This match had already been postponed once and on Saturday morning it looked like it would be postponed again.
However, by 1pm the clouds had lifted and the green was OK for play.
When play finally got under way the spectators were treated to a match worthy of any major singles final.
In extremely cold conditions, all but one or two of the spectators took refuge in the club house to see Tom Casey get away to a flying start and lead Brett "Baldy" Frame 9-1 after six ends.
With both players playing some great bowls it wasn't until the 21st end that Baldy took the lead for the first time, 15-14.
Tom again found form and it wasn't until the 26th end that Baldy again took the lead 18-17.
Over the next three ends Tom couldn't find the weight and Baldy took advantage to score seven shots and open up a lead of 25-17.
From there on Baldy had an answer for whatever Tom could do and on the thirty-first end Baldy scored the two shots he needed to claim victory, 31-25.
Congratulations to both players and in particular Brett "Baldy" Frame, the Club Major Singles Champion for 2020.
On Saturday, Col Mudie and John Carr braved the weather conditions to take on Mark Dwyer and Peter McPhee. In a rather one-sided match Mark and Peter had a comfortable win, 34-10 to advance to the Semi-Finals.
Thursday August 6
Fourteen brave bowlers took to the green on a freezing cold day to play two games of Pairs and one game of Triples.
In a close game Col Mudie and John Carr had the better of the early ends and lead Joe Davies and Ray Jones 11-8 after thirteen ends.
On the next end Joe and Ray scored 4 shots to take the lead 12-11 but Col and John won the fifteenth end to draw level and the opened up what proved to be a match winning lead, scoring 5 shots on the sixteenth end. Joe and Ray tried hard to bridge the gap but in the end Col and John ran out winners 20-18.
In the other Pairs match Graham Dixon and Rob Irving just got up against John Ward and John Wright 19-14.
In the Triples match Matin Tighe, Ian Simpson and Bob Freeman had a win, 25-12, against Col Hayward, John Dunn and Alan Affleck
Saturday August 8
On a day more suited to Ice Hockey, Social Bowls were cancelled due to lack of interest by the vast majority of Club members. However, Rob Irving, Ray Jones and John Ward did brave the conditions to have a "roll up" but I can't find any score card.
I believe there is no truth in the rumours that insanity tests proved positive.
It was a cold night for netball this week but great to see so many people brave the conditions and get among it.
