Narooma Men’s Bowls

Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had a good turnout of bowlers eager to win their last game of the year. Winners were decided by Lowest Winning Margin and this week the winners were Allan Chisholm, Rod Holman and Peter Jones (skip) who were six all after 10 ends and all square at 15 all after 20 ends before they won the last end to win their match 16 to 15, 11 ends to 10, against John McNamara, Russell Smith and Terry Lewis (skip). Second place went to the inform team of Don Caldwell, Greg Riley and Andy Thompson (skip) who were leading 16 to six after 11 ends before they relaxed and let their opponents catch up with the score 21 all after 20 ends but Andy’s team rallied to take the last end and the match 22 to 21, 11 ends to 10, against Scott Kennedy, John Cobcroft and Tony Cobcroft (skip). Thank you to Rapley and Son, Narooma Plaza, for their continued support.

On Sunday we had three rink of triples and a rink of pairs and everyone was out there trying to start the New Year with a win.. Winners, decided by Highest Winning Margin, were Mandy Prichard, Sue Bender and Barry Lymbery (skip) who were in front 14 to five after 11 ends and continued their fine form to take their match 19 to eight against Lisa Lymbery, Sue Wales and Peter Jones (skip). Second place went to Marie Wood, Peter Hiscox and Cindy Newell (skip) who led 16 to 12 after 11 ends and they maintained their lead for a 23 to 17 win against Sue Waldock, Kathy South and Graham Wood (skip).

We hope all our bowlers, had a very happy Christmas and we wish you all a happy, healthy and successful 2023.

To Ponder

Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
