Rain disrupted senior games last weekend with all senior games drawn after rain moved in on Saturday afternoon.
First grade were well on the way to victory in their game, dismissing City for 107 runs in the 38th over.
They were able to get 10 overs in before the rain came in. With 52 runs on board and no wickets lost, they were looking down the barrel of an easy win, however had to be content with the draw.
They are currently sitting at number 3 on the points table with three rounds of the competition still to play.
Second grade are currently at fourth place on the ladder, with third grade in second place andlooking almost assured of a finals berth.
Junior games were lucky to finish before the rain moved in with all Guyra teams getting a win. This weekend will see Guyra’s two under 11 teams face off against each other at the Guyra Truckstop in what should be a good games. Third grade will also have a home game at the Sporting Complex.
The rest of this rounds games will be played in Armidale.

Men’s Bowls
We start off this week with what could be considered the upset of the weekend, when Roger Cox and Evan Sole played Steven Sole and Robert Walls. Despite the damp conditions the game went on and from the score card Roger and Evan didn’t let a little rain stand in their way onto a victory 23 shots to 12 shots over 21 ends.
The other game played was Andrew Sparke and Barry Presnell who played Barry Walls and Dan Kennedy. This game was also played in very wet weather, but with the all-weather condition greens bowls can be played. From the card it appeared that Dan and Barry managed to handle the conditions the best and go on to win 22 shots to 19 shots over 21 ends.
The team that went to Armidale City were unable to come home victorious as the opposition was a little too persistent.
Games set down for this weekend: Saturday February 20th: Start: 1.00pm. Starter and umpire: David Wilcox
Club Pairs: John Jackson and Barry Campbell to play Robert Moore and Paul Johnson. David Wilcox and Robert Goodchild to play Wayne Reeves and Geoff Reeves
Remember Bowlers that the Pennant teams are now posted on the notice board so please make yourselves familiar with the teams and make sure if you are playing.

Yesterday twelve players travelled to Glen Innes for their Open.  Next week will be the next round of Pennants hosted by us at Guyra. We expect a large contingent from Armidale so let’s hope we are up to the task.
The week of the 1st and 2nd March we will be running our Open days, so if any Vets willing to play please let Nancy or Wal know as we are taking names now. Also let us know if you can play the Pennants as well.
