The return to bowls for Young Bowling Club has been very welcome but the inconsistent weather conditions have proven a challenge.
Play on Thursday 2nd July saw a total of 24 players involved with 18 for Jackpot play and two games of Club Singles. The first games in the Club Singles were completed in early March and the event has now been resumed.
The game between John Cooper and Terry Mulligan saw a very even start and the scores were level at 12–all and again at 16–all. John then gained a break to lead 23–16 and from that point he did best to take out the game 31–21.
In the other game, Damien Miller played Ian Gailey. The score was 11–9 in Damien’s favour after 12 ends with Damien then moving out to lead 21–11. Ian replied by winning 6 consecutive ends to trail 21–18 but Damien did best over the remaining ends to win 31–19.
In the games of Jackpot bowls, Denis Rosen, Colin Chapman and Ian Schofield took out the vouchers with a winning margin of 13 shots. Other winning teams and margins were Brian Christie and Colin Powell 12 shots, Ian Apps and Russell Boyd 2 shots and Mark Malvicino and Terry Holmes 3 shots.
The 3 shot margin for Mark and Terry was just what was needed to win the $200 jackpot.
The weather conditions on Saturday can best be described as bitterly cold but 14 players were on the green. The vouchers for the afternoon went to Albert Carter and Les Fanning with a margin of 18 shots.
Others to win their games were Colin Chapman and Ian Schofield (1 shot margin) and Steve Walsh, Darryle Miller and Joe Bargwanna (11 shot margin).
