The conditions for bowls during the past week have been the most consistent for some time with fine and warm conditions the order of the day.
Twenty–two players were on the greens on Thursday afternoon. Four of the five games played had close results with margins of 1 shot, 2 shots and two margins of 5 shots.
The exception was a 15 shot margin for Brian Christie and Denis Rosen and they were the winners of the vouchers for the afternoon.
There were also twenty-two players on Saturday afternoon enjoying quite warm conditions. The winners of the Patterson Brothers Funerals sponsored vouchers were Len Porrett and Dave Quigley with the very big margin of 26 shots.
Other winning teams were Max Penfold, Colin Powell and Ged Hardman (2 shots), Colin Chapman and Vic Brown (18 shots), Les Fanning and James Maloney (14 shots) and Brian March and Peter Slater (2 shots).
