Men’s Bowls

The results of a Major/Minor Pairs played Thursday September 26th by arrangement. Cameron Peardon and Robert Moore played Dan Kennedy and Grahame Starr, after a close encounter for the first 7 ends Dan and Grahame forged ahead with Cameron and Robert nipping away at their heels. The scores remained static up to end 20 where the difference was only one shot in favour of Dan and Grahame. This is where Cameron and Robert hit a solid wall and as a result Dan and Grahame went on to take the win 23 shots to 12 shots over 25 ends.
Just a friendly reminder to Bowlers that there is a sheet on the notice stating that there will be a Travelling Bowlers team from Scott’s Head Bowling Club visiting this Club on Sunday October 20th. Required is 20 bowlers to participate in Men’s Triples, so if you haven’t already placed your name on the sheet then your participation would be gratefully appreciated.
No Club Championships this weekend due to long weekend.
A reminder Daylight Savings commences this Sunday October 6th, so remember turn your clocks forward one hour.
