Narooma Men’s Bowls Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had a good turnout of bowlers with winners decided by Lucky Rinks and this week the winners were Russell Smith, Peter Murton and John Spees (skip) who were on fire early on to lead by 15 to seven after 11 ends before the margin narrowed for a 23 to 19 win against Mick Cavic, Rhys Budwick and Greg Ryan (skip). Second place went to Jim Constan, Marty Vandervass and Clive Gilmour (skip) who had a close game early where they led 11 to 10 after 11 ends before they picked up a few good ends for a 29 to 15 win against Vince Stokes, Gail Palmer and Les Waldock (skip). The first resting toucher went to Rex Dunn who came up well, first run after a spell, to rest on the jack at 12.54. Well done Rex. Thank you to Rapley and Son, Narooma Plaza, for their continued support.
