Narooma Men’s Bowls

Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had 42 bowlers with seven rinks of triples. Winners were decided by Lowest Winning Margin and this week the winners were Vince Stocks, Rod Holman and John Redman (skip) who were down seven to 18 after 11 ends before they really applied the pressure to win eight of the remaining ends to take the match 24 all and 13 ends to eight, against Julie Smith, Gail Palmer and Margaret Naylor (skip). Second place went to Greg Riley, Don Caldwell and Andy Thompson (skip) who were leading 16 to 11 after 11 ends and all square at 20 all after 19 ends before they won the last two ends to win their match 23 to 20 against John Rowley, Baxter Smith and Warwick George (skip). Barry Goodwin was playing top bowls all day so it was no surprise that he claimed the first resting toucher at 13.18. Congratulations Barry a great effort considering the blustery southerly that kept us all on our toes. Thank you to Rapley and Son, Narooma Plaza, for their continued support.

On Saturday the winning team was decided by Lucky Rinks with Carl Lee and Shorty Smart (skip) getting the money after leading 14 to 10 after 13 ends and they kept their nose in front all the way for a 21 to 18 win against Baxter Smith and Warwick George (skip).

On Sunday we had a rink of triples and a rink of pairs. Winners, decided by Lucky Rinks, were Sue Bender and John Downie (skip) who were in front 10 to five after 11 ends and continued playing good bowls to take their match 18 to 14 against Jan and Bruce Rapkins (skip).

To all our bowlers, have a very happy Christmas and come out bigger and better in the New Year.
