LAST Thursday’s social bowls were abandoned due to wet weather conditions.

Fine weather prevailed last Friday, which enabled the Club Championship Pairs’ competition game to be played.

Mick de Vries and Ian Humphreys played consistent bowls to defeat last year’s champions, Alf Strano and Alf Siliato.

Spectators who watched the game appreciated the quality bowls played by both teams.

The Club hosted the annual Lightning Fours last Sunday, with 64 players from across the region competing for a share of the prize money up for grabs.

Sixteen teams of four played four games of 12 ends, with wins plus aggregate used to determine the overall winners.

Humphreys and de Vries and continued their good form on the day with a convincing win of 56 to claim first prize, along with teammates Roy McCarthy and Jim Martinod.

The second prize winners were Rod Bradley, Rob Moody, Ian Fisher, and Malcolm Bright with 50 points, whilst in third place with 46 points were Michael Roots, Frank Catelan, Kevin Foord, and David Leach on a countback from Frank Obah’s team.

New members and visiting bowlers are most welcome for social games on Thursday and Saturday afternoons with names to be in by 1.00pm.
