Narooma Men’s Bowls Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had a good turnout of 36 bowlers with winners decided by Lowest Winning Score and this week the winners were Graham Cummins, Mark Bartrup and Mitch Mitchell (skip) who led 10 to four after 11 ends and 16 to 14 after 20 ends before they picked up a shot on the last end for a 17 to 14 win against Rex Dunn, Don Caldwell and Peter McKay (skip). Second place went to Rhys Budwick, Tony Gors and Rob Coulson (skip) who led nine to five after 11 ends before they doubled their score for an 18 to 12 win against Peter Murton, Shorty Smart and John Spees (skip). I saw a big yellow bowl lazily resting on the jack at about 12.45 and it was the first resting toucher and it was bowled by Tony Palmer proving he is not just a pretty face!! Thank you to Rapley and Sons for their continued support.

On Saturday the winners, decided by Lucky Rinks, were Shorty Smart and Carl Lee (skip) who led 14 to nine after 11 ends before moving into overdrive to rush home to score a 34 to 14 win against Craig Campbell and Billy Wilton (skip).

On Sunday we had two triples games with the winners decided by Lucky Rink and this Sunday it was Peter Hawker/Warren Bender, Jan Rapkins and Bruce Rapkins (skip) who had an all the way win against Rob McIntyre/Al Randall, Pieter Vos and Jean Vos (skip). Congratulations to Jean and Pieter who are celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary.

President Pairs

One game was played this week, with Peter Hattam and John Downie (skip) playing Mick Cavic and Dave Herman (skip). Peter and John started well and led for the first 10 ends and with the score 11 to 10 at that stage Mick and Dave made their move and led for the next six ends. With the score 18 to 16 to Mick and Dave after 16 ends Peter and John started attacking the jack and they took the remaining ends to run out 24 to 18 winners.
