Wednesday Men’s Triples.
34 bowlers enjoyed a breezy but bright sunny day with Highest Winning Score being Warren Bender, John Downie and John McNamara defeating Kevin Calloway, Billy Wilton and Paul Naylor 30-15.
Runners up were Peter Dillon, Graeme Cummins and ‘Big Dog’ Palmer over Jeff Iles, Jon King and Peter McKay 27- 15.
Resting toucher was Barry Goodwin.
A brisk breeze met last Tuesday’s bowlers, but the sun shone, making it a great winter’s day to be out on the green.
Three games of triples were played, the winners for the day were chosen with a random card selection by Sue Wales.
On rink five the strong combination of Maureen Findlay (sharing the lead with Barb McNamara), Sue Wales and Gail Riley (skip) ‘seized the day’ and got away to an early lead against Denise Holman, Coral Read and Jean Vos (skip).
Gail’s team kept up their good form to win the game then the lucky rink prize.
Gail Palmer, returning from a break, won the meat raffle, with thanks to Rapley’s Meats for their valued support.
Noticeboard: Ladies are reminded to enter the Consistency competition on 24 August. Have a go, it’s a great fun way to hone your skills and concentration.

Narooma Ladies Triples Carnival took place on Saturday and Sunday, making it a very busy weekend.
Six games were played by 18n teams over two days. The weather was spectacular and much fun and hard competition was enjoyed.
The windy conditions made things tough for some, while others used it to their advantage.
It was a wonderful time to meet new friends and catch up with others with 13 of the teams coming from Tathra to Oak Flats.
The closeness of the results was shown by no team winning all their matches and all teams winning at least two matches.
Paul Naylor presented the prizes on behalf of the Narooma Sporting and Services Club.
Fourth place: Judy Davis, Bev Feehan, Margaret Bridges (skip) Malua Bay with 4 wins and -2 shots margin;
Third place: Julie Martin, Debra Kelly, Leanne Smith (skip) Oak Flats with 4 wins and a 32 shot margin;
Second: Beth Whittington, Patty Manning, Sue White (skip) Moruya with 4 wins 1 draw and a 19 shot margin.
First place: Gay Biggs, Pat Weeks, Pat Bill (skip) Malua Bay with 5 wins and a 32 shot margin.

Cobber Peter took out the resting toucher again but the $500 jackpot stayed in the bag while the wrong bias sinners got off scot-free and raffle prize winners didn’t have to share.
Thursday’s clear skies tempered by a very cool breeze.
