BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

Our first side, playing in Division 1 of the Southwest League, were at home to Busselton Black. Mike Brown’s team went down by 6 shots, while Ed Homburg’s four were 4 shots up, earning the side a single point and placing them now fifth place on the 1st division ladder. Playing away at Busselton, our second side gained three points when Wayne Coyle’s team won by 18 shots while Tom Reynolds four lost by just 2 shots. Our second side thus retained its top place on the 3rd division ladder. In Division 4 Norm Gage’s four won by 10 shots away to Boyanup, while on the next rink Don Henderson’s team came down by 12 shots. A single point gained, meant that our third side dropped to third place on the 4th division ladder.

There is just one more round to go this week in the Southwest League before the finalists are decided.

Thursday

A very pleasant day saw 48 participants in the peg-draw which Kevin Gibb ran as a three-bowl triples. Winners with 2 + 25 were Andre Gil, Phil Higgins, and Geoff Benn.  Ralph Don, Tom Reynolds, and Brian Buttsworth were not far behind. Taking home the chocolate this week were Tom Ferguson, John Halden, and Trevor Palmer.

On the noticeboard, please read a proposal for a revamped Pennants season next year as proposed recently by the Leeuwin League Men’s Committee, for consideration by all clubs, prior to the Leeuwin League AGM in May. Please indicate to your committee whether you are for against this proposal.
