Enjoying another perfect, sunny, winter’s day our social bowlers were keen to get out on the green. There was a game of triples and two games of pairs and this week winning scores on ends six and 12 were doubled. The winning team for the day, decided by Lowest Winning Margin, was Sue Waldock and Sue Sansom (skip) who led 14 to 12 after 12 ends thanks to a three, doubled, on end six. They gradually extended their lead to go on to a 23 to 17 win against Heather McGourty and Cindy Newell (skip). Clare Cork continued her good form in picking up the money for her resting toucher at 12.40.
Peter Hawker won the Rapley’s Meat raffle and Suzanne Dainer took second prize. Thank you to Rapley and Sons for their continued, valued, support. Heather McGourty won the 50Club.
The finalists in the Major Pairs were decided on Friday when Carol Harraway and Vicki Herman (skip) met Suzanne Dainer and Gail Howe (skip). Carol and Vicki started strongly and after 11 ends they led 11 to seven. There were some really good ends in play throughout the match with very few multiples however Carol and Vicki kept their margin and eventually ran out 20 to 11 winners. They will now play Alison Maloney and Sandra Breust in the final.
