Happy Bowling Days for Women at Tuross Head

On Thursday, in beautiful sunshine and on a magnificent green, six Tuross Head women bowlers played in the second round of the Consistency competition after having a bye in the first round. This is such a great competition which everyone enjoys. It rewards the consistent draw bowlers who are able to get the bowls as close as possible to the “Jack” which is placed on a metal ring or washer. In a normal bowls game, if a bowler hits the Jack, it is an advantage as it disturbs the head and the bowlers have to adjust their grass and length according to the new Jack position. In Consistency, the Jack is always returned to the metal ring. The aim of the game is to reach 150 points to win. Points are awarded to the bowler according to the closeness of each bowl to the jack and washer- 4 for a win, 3 for 2nd, 2 for 3rd bowl and 1 for 4th closest bowl.

Yesterday the winners were new bowler Jenny Marks who defeated Jenny Madden, Fran O’Connell who defeated Di Newell and Chris Roxby who defeated Stephanie Dennett, another playing Consistency for the first time. These winning ladies will now move onto the 3rd round next Tuesday, when Fran O’Connell will play Chris Roxby and Jenny Marks will play the winner of the game between Denise Lidbury and Marg Downey, which will be played on Saturday. They were not able to play after each winning their games in the 1st round, as Denise was tied up with the District Champion of Champion at Malua Bay which was also held on Thursday.

A big congratulations to Denise for winning the District Major Singles Champion of Champions and Di Challice for winning the Minor Champion of Champions. Tuross Bowlers are certainly holding their own in our bowling District.
