Narooma Men’s Bowls - Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had a good turnout of bowlers desperate to win their first 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 led 11 to four after 11 ends and held on for a 15 all draw and won on a countback against Andy Thompson, Don Caldwell and Greg Riley (skip). Second place went to Darrell Goodridge, Peter Hawker and Peter Robson (skip) who were eight all after 11 ends and it was close all the way before they picked up two shots on the last end for a 14 to 13 win against Marie Woodbine, Cindy Newell and Graeme Woodbine (skip). The ever-consistent Peter Jones had a resting toucher at 2.52. Well done Peter. Thank you to Rapley and Son, Narooma Plaza, for their continued support.

On Saturday we had a good turnout of 28 bowlers with Lucky Rinks being the method determining the winners who were Peter Robson and John McNamara (skip) who started strongly to lead 15 to five after 11 ends and they maintained their advantage to take their match 25 to 14 against Greg Ryan and Trevor Proctor (skip).

On Sunday we had three rinks of triples and a rink of pairs with winners decided by Lowest Winning Margin. Winners were Kathy South, Sue Bender and Carol Harroway (skip) who were seven all after 10 ends and won their very close match, 13 all ends up, against Marie Woodbine, Sue Wales and Darrell Goodridge (skip). Second place went to Sue Waldock, Merrie Downie and Barry Lymbery (skip) who led 15 to six after 11 ends and they continued to lead throughout for a 22 to 15 win against Rob McIntyre/Al Randall, Warren Bender and Bruce Rapkins (skip).

To Ponder

There are lots of people who mistake their imagination for their memory.
