Tomakin Twist Tops

Another fantastic weekend away with Twist Tops, staying in Merimbula at Comfort Inn which was perfect, bowling at Tura Beach Country Club.

Thank you to our committee who were all present but particularly to President and Secretary Steve and Jennie Hogan who did a fabulous job with the organization of our weekend away with several challenges on the way. Thanks to Kirsty Wood Women’s President of Tura Beach who helped make it possible.

Arriving on Friday there was some leisure time in Merimbula before bowling Saturday and Sunday in beautiful sunshine with a little wind to test our skills!!

Kel Duncombe from Tura Beach took over proceedings each day assisted by Rob Reeve. Kel gave out lots of fines for Charity I cannot remember them all but know I received one for talking, Tony Dobson received a fine when marking a ” toucher” he marked the Kitty instead of the bowl that was touched .

First day winners, Ellie Crompton, Eric Olerhead and Joanne Miles. Irene Pollard, Neil Power and Karen James. Rod Bottom and Greg Megee. Roland Krikowa, Clive Beadon and Carol Hooper.

The format was terrific with all teams a mix of bowlers from both clubs.

Sunday morning Tura Beach members cooked a barbecue breakfast for everyone so thank you to them it was a great start to the day.

Sunday winners, Mary Murray, Peter Edwards and Jan Duncombe. Rob Reeve, Dick Morley and Kirsty Wood. Tricia Wheeler, Barry Rusling and Greg Megee had a close game 19/17 with one member of the opposing team Liam Wood in Grade 4 at Primary school and a fantastic little bowler.

President Steve Hogan thanked Tura Beach for their hospitality, fun and friendship, we will look forward to a visit from them in the future at Tomakin.

Tura Women’s President Kirsty Wood thanked everyone for a great weekend.
