Narooma Social Bowls 21 February 2023
Three rinks of triples were on the green for social bowls last Tuesday. The overcast conditions produced a sprinkle of rain which eventually increased. Games were abandoned and players sought the club as a better option.
The 'Highest Winning Score' was awarded to Gail Marchant (Thirroul), Sue Bender and Marg Naylor (skip) with their score of 17 against Leila Gosper, Denise Holman and Barb McNamara (skip).
The raffle winner this week was Sue Sansom with thanks to Rapley and Son Butchers.
The first round of the Ladies Club Fours was played on Friday morning. The score card reflected a very close encounter with some excellent bowling.
Alison Maloney, Pam Grant, Gail Howe and Sandra Breust (skip) held a four shot lead on end eight after a three-all score on the fifth. Then, Leila Gosper, Barb McNamara, Anne Hunter and Willie Blink (skip) responded to be 8 to 7 ahead after 10 ends. During the next seven ends both teams fought hard but scores remained equal after 17 ends at 12 all. Willie's team scored three shots on the next end, then Sandra's team won the final three ends for a final 19 to 15 result.
What a good game! Congratulations to Sandra's team who have booked a spot in the final, due for play on Friday. Commiserations to Willie's team on a top effort.
