Last Sunday saw the second day’s play of the Tyres & More Mixed Pairs Championship.

Six games of thirteen ends each were played over the two days and were fiercely contested by the fourteen pairs involved.

The winning pair was the mum & son team of Jean and Clint Kelly with six wins to their credit..

Congratulations on your excellent play over both days.

Runners Up were Janis Hoover and Merv Mott with a sterling effort of five wins.

Five teams ended up having four wins with shots up as follows:

36    33    24    16    4.

The best of these were Rob Prentice and Peg Hawley.

Congratulations to all teams on the great bowls played and the wonderful spirit in which the games were played.

Special thanks are extended to the sponsors of this event Tyres & More.

A reminder that this event will go ahead this week but with a modification of the number of ends played to enable players to be free for their Christmas Eve celebrations.

CROQUET

 Gala Day: The annual Gala Day and Christmas lunch was held last Friday. Thank you to all who contributed in any way to the success of the day. 21 players spent the morning testing their croquet skills with a range of challenging activities, and then they were joined by past players for some Christmas cheer. A special presentation was made to Stuart and Norma Dunn in recognition of their contribution to the croquet section. Unfortunately Stuart and Norma are not well enough to continue playing and next year they will relocate to Perth.

 “Blue Metal Golf  “ played  at Dunsborough Country Club

 Last Saturday we played the “Blue Metal Putts Competition Event”  on Holes 10 to 18which have been completely renovated to the final plan formula, and including five of our original sand green holes.

The Blue Metal event winner was Barry Jackson who completed the 14 Holes using only 22 Putts closely followed by Stephen Roberson on 23 Putts.

This showed that the new blue metal greens  played well .

We hope to have the Holes 1 to 9 completed by  the first week in the new year.

Well done to you all.

Please note that because of the current work in  progress Holes 1 to 9 will be out of action for the next week as they are now being completed.

There will be  a Stb Event on Wednesday 23 Dec and there will be no organised fixture for Saturday 26 December as it is Boxing Day.

Merry Xmas everyone  and we look forward to your company in the New Year
