Three games of triples were organised for ladies social bowls last Tuesday. The team with the lowest winning margin was the day’s winners.

The team winning their last end saw Gail Riley, Pam Grant and Barb McNamara (skip) declared the winning team against swinging lead Gail Riley, Betty Greenshields and Jean Vos (skip).
Raffles were won by Jan Rapkins, Lorraine Mitchell and Dawn Kenny. Thanks to Rapley’s Meats.
The Goose is still circling, awaiting his partner’s return, and only returned in time for Monday’s after game results of the 30 players under the control of Chef Keith.
The lowest winning margin was drawn as the game decider for the winners in Tom’s boy Danny, Towelling Lewis and Garry L-rentacar from the runners-up in Account Cartwright, Torf Also-pas and Peter the Pom.
The resting toucher was not won nor was the $100 jackpot taken out. The wrong bias sinners were Ex.PM Neil in good company with gospeller Bob while the raffle winners were ticket seller Garry, Barry Arminter, Peter Hit-Holden and the Goose.
The Goose’s holding pattern could be of better design so once again book results for another very windy Thursday for the 20 bowlers which for a change saw the highest winning margin as the game decider for the winners in Morse’s offsider Lee and Garry L-rentacar from the runners-up in Pete the Pom, Hook-ara Wort and Punter Alan.
The first resting toucher was scored by gospeller Bob but the $229 jackpot was not won.
The wrong bias sinners and raffle winners were recorded but as usual they did pay for their sins and raffle tickets.
On Friday night 13 twilight bowls players turned out in perfect evening conditions again organised by Bruce for the winners in John Ver-L and the Goose from the runners-up in Tan-back and B-linda Hicks and Ray-Overrod.
The resting toucher was not won but the Southern Eurobodalla Plumbing $10 lucky draw went to Mayor Chris while Ian Unpaid took out the Bound 2 Earth Coffee Shop 2 free cups of coffee.
The Friday twilight game is open to all over the age of 12, both male and female, so come along and enjoy two hours of fun.

Tomakin Twist Tops
What a fabulous day for 47 Twisties to enjoy their morning of bowls. President Steven Hogan welcomed everyone, then Jennie read out two Christmas cards from Margaret and Tony Vogel and one from Sue Gregory wishing all a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2019. They also thanked committee for another great year. All work tirelessly to make each Sunday morning a pleasure.
The day started off with a Spider – a prize awarded to the closest bowl to a coin placed on the green. Impossible to see but winners were Trish the Dish and Jesse James.
After bowls we all ventured into Club Tomakin for meat and seafood raffles as well as children’s toy raffles and the money wheel. Luncheon was well worth the wait – a delicious main course followed by a scrumptious dessert.
Breakfast trays were won by Spike and Milka. Winners were those on highest losing margin: Peter Crowe, Val Toyer and Cate Parker.
Runners-up were Margaret Vogel, Tony Dobson and Henry Garrard. Cate drew rink 3 to try for Jackpot. Neil Power did the honours but no Joker. The special award was given to Robbo who said he would have played bowls if he had put his name down. The lucky door prizes won by Tony Dobson and Maureen Devine.
