Margo Parker from the Club was selected by Women’s Bowls NSW to play in the Country Open side against the City side at Soldiers Point held 27/28 July. This fixture is not only an annual battle for city vs country supremacy but a chance for NSW State selectors to cast an eye over the state’s finest bowlers.
According to Margo, Country came out firing on Saturday morning and had a comprehensive win over the City side 104/62. In the afternoon, the tables were turned with City taking the honours 92/76. With everything to play for on Sunday, both teams were feeling the pressure. It was neck and neck right up until the last end with the City team winning the final test by 2 shots 78/76. A draw would have secured a win for Country but it wasn’t to be.
Margo said, “Once again, it was a great experience and I was honoured to be able to represent the Young Bowling Club”.
At social bowls last Tuesday 30th July, 6 ladies braved the cold weather. Zita Farrell, Ann Gardner and Kate Cooper had a convincing win over Jill Rosen, Julie Alavoine and Judy Watson 31/9. On Thursday 1st August, 2 great pairs games were played. Therese Ruhl and Mary Bennett won their game against Lee Veitch and Julie Alavione by 2 shots while Zita Farrell and Kate Cooper won by 1 point against Jill Rosen and Ann Gardner. Kate’s team won the jackpot and Therese and Mary won the vouchers.
