Narooma men’s bowls
Social bowls winners circle
Wednesday, October 25
ON a rather pleasant Wednesday afternoon Maggsy's choice day, there were eight rinks (48 bowlers) of triples played. Maggsy's choice decided that the winners of the day would be the side with lowest winning margin and that winning side, after gaining a good lead at the half way point, were Henk Koster, Max Ardron and Neville Mitchell 22 shots over a bloke who is supposed to be blind, but proved otherwise and that was Jim Pollock, Peter Jones and John King 19 shots. The runners up were D Maggs, Brian Seaman and Jeremy Seaton 20 shots over Warren (Cuddles) Bender, John Downie and Keith Pickett 14 shots.

Saturday afternoon social bowls had 32 bowlers (eight rinks of pairs) nominate for the afternoon matches, with the winners being Maurie Ferguson and Alan Connor 21 shots over John Downie and Jeremy Seaton 13 shots. The runners-up were John Muir and Owen Clark 25 shots over a side that scored 16 shots and shall remain nameless as they were not entered on the winners score card - naughty.
Two of our bowlers travelled to Soldiers Point over the weekend to do battle for the President Reserve Pairs State Title. Those bowlers are Stan Bordiuk and Alan Thornhill and at last report they were leading the final in the last end 16 shots to 11 shots, having played Stan and Alan in the district final and knowing Alan they were not going to lose this match this close to the finish. Good on you Stan and Alan you have both done yourselves proud.

Eight players enjoyed a full night of bowls with the men of the law, Bob and Mark, carrying out a heavy raid on the organiser (still) and newcomer Ken Fitzpatric resulting in a complete shutdown/lockout, and in the other game Dave and Frank put the shoe into our 'A' team of postie and petrol puller, Joe and Brendan, and with two convincing results on the night, bowls was the winner once again (Pete).
Tradesmen’s Bowls Friday October 26: First game of the new season saw the following winners - Narooma Electrics scraped in by one shot over Matt Tubb's painting mob; The Dalmeny Roofers 'guttered' the Houston Plumbing outfit 17 to 6; and the Auto Body Specialists "dented" the Sharp Edge team winning 22 to 17.
A great night was held with congratulations to the round one cooks/waiters the No Bias Bowlers who served up a la carte barbecue sausages with crispy bread rolls plus a lovely entree on the green earlier on.
It's on again next week fellas where the cooking/waitering duties going to the Auto Body Specialists mob who I have no doubt will "raise the bar" in the tucker department.
Don't forget, 5pm for 5.15pm start guys, see you then.
