The fine weather during the past week has been good for bowls, although the gusty wind on Thursday made play more difficult than usual.

Other teams to win their games and their margins were Milan Brankovic and Colin Powell (11 shots), Margo Parker substituting for an ill player and Terry Holmes (5 shots), Garry Fish and Joe Bargwanna (4 shots), Damien Miller and Colin Stokell (2 shots) and Kevin Bryant and Les Fanning (1 shot after playing an extra end).

Saturday afternoon saw 32 players involved including two players from Bribbaree. The conditions were quite warm and there was very little wind.

The vouchers for the afternoon went to the combination of Albert Carter and Terry Mulligan with a winning margin of 14 shots.

Colin Chapman and Geoff DeBritt won their game by 10 shots, Milan Brankovic and Graeme Edgerton won by 9 shots as did Phil Taylor and Jonno Watson.
