Narooma Men’s Bowls Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had a good turnout of 38 bowlers with winners decided by Highest Winning Margin and this week the winners were the Dixie Dean team of Peter Dillon, Rob Coulson and Greg Ryan (skip) who got away to a good start to lead 14 to five after 11 ends and repeated that form in the second half to take their match 27 to nine against Sue Waldock, Margaret Naylor and Sandra Breust (skip). Second place went to Allison Maloney, Greg Maloney and Barry Lymbery (skip) who were off and running early to lead 13 to eight after 11 ends before they dominated the second half to take their match 27 to 11 against Peter Hiscox, Ken Burrows and John Voytas (skip). The first resting toucher went to Greg Ryan at 12.53. Well done Greg, all over the jack, as usual. Thank you to Rapley and Sons for their continued support.

On Saturday we had a good turnout and the winners, selected by Lucky Rinks, were Mick Cavic and Kevin Callaway (skip) who had a very competitive game where they led 10 to nine after 12 ends before they started to draw clear for a 24 to 16 win against Terry Lewis and Peter Hiscox (skip).

On Sunday we had two rinks of triples and a rink of pairs and the winners, decided by Highest Winning Score, were Sue Wales and John Downie (skip) who gave away a decent start, one to 11 after five ends, before they clicked in to gear to turn the tables as they raced away to a 33 to 12 win against Graeme Howden and Ken Burrows (skip).

President Pairs

One semi final was played this week with Peter Hattam and John Downie (skip) playing Clare Cork and Les Waldock (skip). This was a close game in the first half with Clare and Les leading 12 to 11 after 11 ends but they picked up a couple of big ends to draw clear and as Peter and John tried to get back in to the match they were restricted to one shot at a time as Clare and Les took the match 27 to 18.
