Narooma Men’s Bowls Social Bowls Winners’ Circle

On Wednesday we had a turnout of bowlers with several visitors and a group of our friends from Bermagui. Winners, decided by Highest Winning Margin, were Mick Cavic, Tony Gors and Greg Ryan (skip) who had a good win in their match. Second place went to Glenn Brown, Rod Holman and Peter Jones (skip) who raced out to a 20 to seven lead after 10 ends and they continued that form to take their match 34 to 15 against Frank Hicks, Sue Wales and their skip. Garry Burke had the first resting toucher at 14. 28 on a day where the slick greens made things quite difficult. Well done Garry. Thank you to Rapley and Sons for their continued support.

On Saturday there were quite a few keen bowlers playing pairs and triples. Winners, decided by Lucky Rinks, were Russell Smith, Peter Murton and Terry Lewis (skip) who were behind for most of the match, only leading briefly on end 10, and then trailed again throughout the second half before picking up three shots on the last end to take their match 20 to 19 against Jim Taylor, Peter Dillon and Greg Ryan (skip).

On Sunday we had two games of triples and a game of pairs with winners decided by Highest Winning Margin, were Al Randall/Rob McIntyre, Sue Wales and John Downie (skip) who were in top form all day as they led from go to whoa against Kaye Whiffen, Warren Bender and Jan Rapkins (skip) for a 28 to 10 win.

Club Triples Championship

Two matches were played this week. Warren Bender, Neville Cork and John Downie (skip) played Col Armstrong, Dennis Maggs and Les Waldock (skip) with Les and his team getting away to a great start to lead 10 to one after six ends. John and his team fought back and by end 13 the score was 11 all and from there on they hit the front and after leading 19 to 18 after 22 ends they drew clear to take their match 25 to 18. The other match was played on Sunday between Peter Hattam, Rob Coulson and Dave Herman (skip) and Garry Burke, Kevvy Callaway and Sandra Breust (skip). Dave and his team were down one to five after five ends but after picking up four shots on the next end to be five all they took the lead and after 16 ends they were in front 17 to 11. They remained in the lead, even though Sandra and her team were coming back strongly taking five of the next seven ends and after 23 ends the lead had reduced to 18 to 19. Sandra and her team kept their momentum going and they took the last two ends to win the exciting match, 21 to 19.
