On Wednesday we had a good turnout of 36 bowlers with winners decided by Lowest Winning Margin and this week the winners were Andy Thomson, Ken Burrows and Peter McKay (skip) who had a very close game throughout and after being all square at 11 all after 12 ends they swapped the lead a couple of times before they timed their run to perfection for a 19 to 17 win against Warren Bender, Barry Goodwin and John Downie (skip). Second place went to Garry Burke and Allan Hepper (skip) who led 20 to six after 18 ends and withstood a strong fightback from Peter James and Tony Gors (skip) and held on to take the game 23 to 20. The first resting toucher went to Peter Dillon at 12.50, continuing his good form of late. Well done Peter. Thank you to Rapley and Sons for their continued support.
On Sunday we had two triples and a game of pairs with the winners decided by Highest Winning Score and this Sunday it was John Downie and Barry Lymbery (skip) who were 12 all after 12 ends, 13 all after 14 ends and down 16 to 17 after 16 ends before they drew clear for a 25 to 17 win against Graeme Howden and Ken Burrows (skip).

Sue Wales, Cindy Newell and their skip had a very tight first half to lead eight to six after 10 ends before they took the next six ends to draw clear on their way to a 20 to nine win against Allan Chisholm, Terry Lewis and Peter Jones (skip). Peter Dillon, Rob Coulson and Greg Ryan (skip) played Mick Cavic, Darryl Goodwin and Kevin Callaway (skip) and after bolting out of the boxes Greg’s team led all the way for a good win.
One game was played this week, Cindy Newell and her skip playing Jim Constan and Sandra Breust (skip) and after getting off to a great start Jim and Sandra led 20 to six after 11 ends and 25 to 12 after 17 ends before they dropped the last four ends but maintained their lead for a 25 to 18 win.
