On Saturday Luke Ramsay v Peter Creith. As you would expect from these quality bowlers it was close until Luke led 26/20. Peter thought he was gone, but Peter managed to get back into the game and went on to win 31/27.
Six social bowlers came out for a roll, Mick Furney, George Greenhalgh and Brian Smith v Lea Tanks, Gene Rapp and Peter Job. According to the scorer George it was an 8 all draw but I think Lea's team won.
Sunday another game of major singles with Tony Bright v Ray Griffith. This was a good game also with very tight bowls played. Tony got a 4 to get away to a 24/14 lead but Ray wasn't done with yet. Tony led 29/21 and Ray dug in to get to 27/30. Tony got the shot on the 39th end to win 31/27.
Wednesday's chicken run had 12 brave players on a cold and very windy day. Winners were Allan Curteis & Allan Affleck W17+18. Runners up were Dave Johnson (happy birthday Dave) & Neil Riley on a countback 17+18 as well. Margins 3,18,18 and marble 11 rolled out so next week's jackpot will be $44. Stephan's hair cut went to Mick Dunn. The Zone 4 events have been postponed for 6 weeks due to the covid 19 pandemic .

So come on down to our friendly little club and have a good time .
High player numbers continue, with 24 bowlers indulging in their favourite sport last Tuesday, on a fresh winter's day.
The semis of the Club Pairs and two games of Turn-Around-Triples were on the program.
Both semis were closely-fought, thrilling matches, deserving of semi-finals! An appreciative band of on-lookers enjoyed the entertainment! Thanks to umpire, Liz.
Betsy Johnstone & Brenda Davies led for most of their match against Maree Grant & Heather Harvey. However, Maree & Heather finished strongly to take the win by just one point, 15 - 14.
Kim Evans & Jan McPhee fought out a close match against opponents, Lea Orr & Lynn Ryan. The lead changed here & there, with Lea & Lynn finishing with a 3 on the final end, to win 21 - 19.
No one could blame the "Skip" for losing in the triples games - everyone took a turn at Skip!
Kay Craft/Frances Charlton/Lorraine Baker enjoyed a win over Fran Dixon/Di Howell/Maureen Miller, 25-11. Fran, Di & Maureen took some time to warm up, giving their foes an unbreakable lead!
Carol Reed/Chris Curteis/Joan Simpson eclipsed Chris Cox/Merilyn Rodgers/Gwenda Carty, enjoying their win, 18-14, in a close game.
The winners' draw saw Lea & Lynn still smiling, and with Lynn winning the raffle as well, her day was complete!
Skipper Merilyn did her best to control the raucous, dyslexic crowd around the Trading Table; the hilarity put a smile on everyone's face!
WBNSW has cancelled all events at District, Zone & State level, including the District AGM, for six weeks.
