There was a good attendance for social bowls with three rinks of triples and one pairs game last Tuesday, a near cloudless day.
On rink three Jenny Coulson and Dawn Kenny (skip) combined well, leading early until scores matched on the 15th end against Sue Bender and Shirley Pilgrim.
Winning the last two ends, Jenny and Dawn went on to win the lucky rink prize. Bev Bowater won the raffle. Happy Birthday wishes for a special lady, our patron Vena Butt for next Monday.
Last Friday Pam Grant, Kerry Ferguson and Sandra Breust, playing excellent bowls, took control early in the final of the Club Triples.
Denise Holman played consistent lead bowls but she and team mates Gail Palmer and Gail Riley, despite making a comeback, were unable to make up the deficit and conceded the game by three shots.
Congratulations to Pam, Kerry and Sandra, our Club Triples Champions for 2017.

Saturday, June 24. Jack-Pot pairs Saturday drew 24 bowlers for the afternoon matches.
The winners for the day were decided by the team with the highest winning margin, and that team, with a margin of a lot, was Peter Hattam and Peter Pickett, over a couple of blokes who failed to turn up.
Runners-up were Keith Pickett and Tony Gors, and they also had a high winning margin over a side that did turn up but went home early.
The Jack-Pot lucky rink draw was then carried out to see who the winning skip on that rink was and give him a chance to cut the deck of cards in an attempt to turn up Joker.
The winning skip on lucky rink 4 was Greg Ryan partnered by Jon Voytas.
He cut the deck and came up with Joker, walking away with the $580 Jack-pot.
Well done Greg, so the Jack-Pot starts again next time at $200.
