Four teams competed in the Young Women’s Club Fours Championship last week. On Wednesday 30th September, the 1st round was played. The team of Judith Mulligan, Heather Bailey, Elsie Hines and Margaret Gailey were defeated by the team of Robyn Tierney, Margaret Glasheen, Julie Alavoine and Judy Watson 18/14. The other 2 teams competing were Honor Stollery, Jenny Holt, Kathryn Betcher and Margo Parker who were narrowly defeated by Therese Ruhl, Jill Rosen, Sheila Traynor and Kate Cooper 19/18.
On Thursday 1st October, the final was played. While Judy Watson’s team had a lead of 5 shots after the third end, they only managed to win another 3 shots in the 21 ends played. Kate’s team had a convincing win of 30/10. Congratulations to Therese, Jill, Sheila and Kate. Jill was particularly excited as this was the 1st winning finals team she had been a part of.
While the Fours final was being played, 6 women had a social game of ‘turn- around- triples’. Five ladies from Harden plus Elsie Hines from Young enjoyed their afternoon of bowls. Pat Walker, Joan and Elsie Hines had a win over June Brownhill, Chris Hancock and Robyn Apps 20/10.
On Sunday of the long weekend, YBC held an Open Nominated Pairs event. 12 teams participated playing 2 games of 10 ends. Five of the 12 teams won both their games. Damien Miller and Margo Parker won with a margin of 24, with runners-up (after a count-back) being Albert Carter and Joe Bargwanna with a margin of 17.
Kathryn Betcher and Margo Parker are playing at Condobolin in the Regional Open Pairs Play-Off this week along with Kate Cooper and Jenny Holt who will contest the Senior Pairs as well. They’re wished the very best of luck and good bowling.
The SW District Mixed Pairs Championships will be played at Cootamundra Country Club this coming Saturday, 10th October after several postponements, mainly due to weather. Hopefully the competition will be played this time.
