Narooma Men’s Bowls : Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had 52 bowlers turn out for a great afternoon of social bowls. Winners, decided by Highest Winning Margin, were Russell Smith, John Spees and Peter Murton (skip) who had a close first half where the score was 12 all after 12 ends, but the wheels fell off after that for Cindy Newell, Darrell Goodridge and Neville Butt (skip) and they didn’t win another end. Peter’s team enjoyed the run home and took the match 26 to 12. Second place went to Allan Chisholm, Rod Holman and Peter Jones (skip) who were down four to 11 after eight ends before putting in a winning spurt lead 19 to 11 after 14 ends. They continued to attack the jack and took their match 28 to 15 against John Voytas, Ross Harris and Greg Ryan (skip). The first resting toucher went to Cindy Newell, at 12.41. Well done Cindy, you didn’t give a lot of us a chance as I, for one, was still chatting at that time! Thank you to Rapley and Son for their continued support.

On Saturday winners were decided by Lucky Rink with Vince Stocks and John Voytas (skip) taking the Easter eggs after leading 17 to 16 after 13 ends and continued to edge clear for a 30 to 23 win against Suzanne Dainer and John Scott (skip).

On Sunday we had three rinks of triples and a rink of pairs. The winners, decided by Lowest Winning Score were Graeme Howden and Dawn Kenny (skip) who led early and just kept the lead for a 16 to 15 win against Sue Bender and John Downie (skip). Second place went to Marie Herlihy, Peter Herlihy and Darrell Goodridge (skip) who had a great time with their friends visiting from Musgrave Hill, Carol Kennedy, Cindy Newell and Paul Kennedy (skip). Darrell’s team were successful, 18 to eight.
