MEN’S BOWLS NEWSLETTER

Tuesday MM Bowls was supported by 23 very keen bowlers and saw Gail Barry emerge winner from a tie for Runner Up position shared by Geoff Oddy, Steve Christensen and Graeme Winter.

Thursday Men’s Social Bowls was only for the brave hearted given the weather prediction for the day.

However 14 guys did roll up and whilst play was delayed by 10 minutes at the start because of rain, they did manage to complete 2 games of 10 ends rain free!!

Winners were  Wendell Hoover & Brian Buttsworth  with +12  Runners Up.John Tucker & Ian Creach

It was noted that Rod Grist was in Perth undergoing medical procedure and best wishes were extended to him.

Again Saturday Snakes and Ladder event was threatened by the weather but 16 players enjoyed the day in rather pleasant conditions.

JemCoupar was outright winner with a distinguished win of 6 points with 11 shots.

Kevin Nichols with 5 points and 11 shots was Runner Up and Gary Robinson third with 4 points and 15 shots.

Both Kevin and Gary look like they’ll be swabbed by stewards Janis and Wendell and no doubt be seeded vertically – the price paid for bowling well!!
