Tuross Head Womens Bowling Club
2017 Classic Pairs Tournament
From the 1st to the 3rd of September, 28 teams of ladies competed at the annual Classic Pairs Tournament.
There were teams from Canberra, Queanbeyan, Sydney, Tathra, Merimbula, Tura Beach as well as representatives from clubs within our local district.
The first day of spring did not let us down, for all three days the sun was shining. It was wonderful to see our two bowling greens with maximum numbers, full of colour (bowls and uniforms) and the game of bowls being played in great spirit. During these three days, friendships are formed or renewed and while competition is keen, laughter can always be heard.
The format of the tournament over the three days is a total of 5 games of 18 ends of pairs. Typical of our greenkeepers, their preparation of the greens allowed the games to be played in first class conditions. It was a challenging competition, and the final outcome was not clear until all games had been completed.
The placings for the competition were:
1st Jan Dunscombe & Pam Reynolds ( Tura Beach) – 10 points, margin +66
2nd Olga Geshwend & Yvonne Huddleston ( Malua Bay) – 10 points, margin +33
3rd Lola Wallis & Cherie Dean ( Tura Beach) – 8 points, margin +42
4th Lorraine Wake & Lorraine Mitchell ( Tuross Head & Narooma) – 8 points, margin +39
5th Joy Scott & Joy Clarke ( Merimbula) – 8 points +19
6th Irene Macdonald & Rose Farrington ( Tuross Head) – 7 points, margin +19
