The conditions for bowls during the past week were quite variable, warm and sunny one day and cold and windy on others.
The wind was a major factor in Friday’s tournament where 28 teams played three games of Three Bowl Pairs.
There were a number of local teams as well as players from Grenfell, Boorowa, Cootamundra, West Wyalong, Stockinbingal, Temora and Molong.
Runners up were Rosemary and Ray Walter from Grenfell with three wins and a margin of 26 shots and the winners with three wins and a margin of 33 shots were Kevin Medcalf and Mike Barber from Cootamundra.
Thanks to the sponsors Bunnamagoo Wines, Donges IGA and Young Bowling Asian Restaurant.
Congratulations to Damien Miller and Margo Parker on their organisation for the day and thanks to Graeme Davis for his work on the barbecue and to David Donges and Stuart Freudenstein for their work behind the bar.
