Bowls Results 11 & 12 February 2017
Over the weekend there were three events held that found us new club champions. Firstly on the best day of the year yet Saturday 11th February there were 22 members who were disc drawn into teams of two, we had a bye round due to the numbers. The format was 2-4-2 paris three games of an hour 30 minutes. It came down to the last game to determine the winner after Gareth Evans and Alwyn Knox bet Cheryl Herlihy and Steve Kerekes, the other two winner, Congratulations to the Winners Cynthia Evans and Brent Smaill the only 3 winner.
On Sunday the Peter Keen Trophy was played for unforunately the turnout was very disappointing, we have over 100 members and for only 10 to show up again meant we had another draw round. The weather we hope was stopping a lot of you making the effort to play!!!! Again it was won on the last game, as Allan Brider and Peter Kirby, bet Pat Walklin and Lock Chin to give Dave Carr and Ian Franklin the Trophy. Congratulations guys.
Whilst the Peter Keen was being played the women also played their Club Championships Triples final between Lui Hare, Hilda Abraham, Nicola Lowe and Kay Martin, Lil George and Kris Haines. The conditions werent easy but the final was a close affair with Lui's team winning, congratulations ladies.
