Playing Ditch Weight

Lawn Bowls

The weather for bowls was quite warm on Thursday with 22 players taking part.

Two teams – Milan Brankovic and Geoff Holt and Tony Ruhl and John Cooper – had winning margins of 14 shots. Milan and Geoff won the count back to collect the vouchers.

In other games, the winners were Michel Alavoine, Stephen Walsh and Colin Pow-ell who won by 7 shots, Kevin Bryant and Joe Bargwanna who had a big lead early and ended up winning by 7 shots and Aldo Malvicino and Tom Preston who had a 3 shot margin.

Play started at 9.30 am on Saturday in an attempt to avoid the very hot weather. Just 10 players were involved with a game of pairs and a game of triples. The vouchers for the day went to the triples combination of Bill Maloney, Vic Brown and John Cooper with the big mar-gin of 19 shots.

The margin for the pairs game was much smaller with Max Penfold and Tom Preston winning by 3 shots.

The Club’s President’s Day will be held on Sunday and any players who want to play but are not already in a team should contact a member of the bowls committee.
