NWBC Social bowls Tuesday 8 November
Three games of triples were played last Tuesday, a beautiful sunny day for bowls. Versatility was the method of play, where team members rotated to a new position after each six ends.
The team with the highest winning margin was used to determine the day's winners. Suzanne Dainer, Jenny Coulson and Margaret Naylor (skip) had a great game against Ann Hunter, Barbara McNamara and Vicki Herman (skip). Scores were level on three occasions in the first ten ends then Marg's team put in a strong finish to win the match and the highest margin for the day to claim the prize money.
Denise Holman was the raffle winner after drawing her own winning number.
Past President's Fours
This is our last Club competition for the year with teams selected by a random draw.
A round robin event of 12 ends of two bowl fours was played over two days.
Round one saw two close games – Heather McGourty, Julie Smith, Pam Grant and Gail Howe (sub for Vicki Herman )(skip) played Suzanne Dainer, Sue Bender, Carol Harroway and Dawn Kenny (skip) for a drawn result of 11 all.
The other match saw Jan Rapkins (sub for A.Maloney), Sue Wales, Gail Palmer and Marg Naylor (skip) have a one shot win against Sue Waldock, Clare Cork, Jenny Coulson and Sandra Breust (skip).
Marg's team had a good win in round 2 against Sue Sansom, Cindy Newell, Janet Murphy and Barb McNamara (skip) and Dawn held on for a three shot win against Sandra.
In round three Dawn's team led early, then Barb and Co won five ends in a row giving Dawn a wake-up to win the last end and the match. Round three also saw Sandra Breust's team have a good win against Vicki Herman's side.
Round four was played last Friday when Vicki Herman's team put themselves into contention with a three shot win against Marg Naylor and Co. Unfortunately, Sandra Breust's team were unable to continue, conceding to Barb McNamara.
Round five proved exciting, Vicki's team posted another win in their match against Barb and Co. Dawn and Margaret met in what proved to be the decider, a hard fought game, Marg led all the way, up seven shots to two after seven ends. Dawn then claimed three of the next four ends, the score was Marg's way eight to seven on the last end. Margaret and her team held on to win the match by two shots with her last bowl.
The final result, winning three games saw Margaret's team claim first place with six points. What a great effort! Congratulations to Alison Maloney, Sue Wales, Gail Palmer and Margaret Naylor (skip).
Dawn Kenny's team of Suzanne Dainer, Sue Bender and Carol Harroway. And Vicki Herman and her team of Heather McGourty, Julie Smith and Denise Holman (sub for Pam Grant) were close behind with both teams finishing with a total of five points.
What a lovely competition, hope to see everyone back next year.
