Play on Saturday afternoon saw 24 players taking part in warm and pleasant conditions.

The vouchers for the day went to Harold Anderson and Ted Loader who won their game by 12 shots.

They finished just in front of Brian March and George Somerville who had a margin of 11 shots.

Other winning teams were Albert Carter and Tom Preston (6 shots), Denis Mullenger and Joe Bargwanna (5 shots), Charlie Buffin and Glen Benson (4 shots) and Michael Webb and Tony Ruhl (4 shots).

During the weekend the Zone 8 Finals of the Champion of Club Champions Pairs were played at Ariah Park.

The South Western District representatives were Damien Miller and David Quigley.

Unfortunately they lost both sectional games on Saturday – by 5 shots in the morning and 1 shot in the afternoon.

The overall winners were Peter and Richard Durnan (Narrandera) who defeated Graeme Rossiter and Tim Crampton (Tumut) 24–20 in the final.

There were 18 players on the green on Thursday afternoon and most games had close results.

The vouchers for the day went to Michael Webb and John Cooper who won their game by 10 shots.

Fred Thompson and Les Fanning won their game by 1 shot, Milan Brankovic and Joe Bargwanna won by 4 shots and Albert Carter, Andrew Hutchison and Ian Schofield had a margin of 8 shots.

There were 60 players involved in the Guy Pickering Charity Challenge on Wednesday night.

ARMA Fabrications were the winners of the vouchers.

On Thursday night there were reduced numbers with three teams unavailable.

Boof’s Heroes had a very convincing win to score 17 points on the night.

Due to the club being closed for a period during the renovations there has been a change made to Club Pairs Championship.

Entries will now close on Thursday 21st April with the first games to be played on 30th April.

Players are reminded to check the notice board for the details of three Bowls NSW events to be played in May – the Men’s and Women’s State Bowls Carnivals to be held 2nd – 6th May and the Over 40s Pairs qualifying events to be conducted 14th and 15th May.

The South Western District has organised an inter–club competition to be played during March, April and May.

A total of 12 sides of 12 players have entered and it is hoped that this event will achieve its aim of keeping players involved in the sport while Pennants are not being played.

Thanks to those players from the club who indicated an interest in playing in this event.

The first round is set down for Sunday 20th March and the selected teams are on display at the club.

Congratulations to the South Western Women’s District bowlers who won the Towning Shield inter-district competition played at Cootamundra Country Club on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

Due to renovations at the club there will be some changed conditions at the club for a few weeks.

Players will be informed if there are any changes to the normal arrangements.
