What a difference a week made to the weather. After last week's hot and windy day Tuesday was picture perfect.
This week saw 22 bowlers front up which was great. Hopefully, if this weather continues so will the numbers.
Tuesday was the start of the Club Championship Triples with the new 18 ends competition.
On rink 10, D.Russell, C.Meillon and L.West played M.Phillips, M.Tucker and H.Walker.
This was a very tight game until end 15 when L.West's team were lucky enough to pick up seven shots with only three more ends to play and were able to hold onto a 24-14 win.
On rink 11, M.D'Amico, L.Snell and M.Zasso on end six were 13-6 up but 12 shots by opposition D.Jackson, G.Caldwell and H.Peuker put them back in the game 13-14 on end 13.
Seven shots to Margherita's team over the last five ends enabled them to come out victors 21-14.
Congratulations and well done to all the players in both games. There were some great bowls played by everyone.
On rink 8 a social game of pairs saw R.Steinfort and U.Roberson play O.Jebbink and H.Reeves (welcome back Helen good to see you back on the green again).
This was a tough tussle with Rulies team coming up trumps 26-19 in the finish. Rink 9 was a social triples game which was another tight see sawing game between D.Fraser, S.Sellars, M.Power against K.Sach, M.Obermaier, L.Keys. This was point for point until end 16 when Daphne's team were able to pick up three shots on the last two ends for a 16-13 win.
Next week will be round two of the Triples. L.West v M.Zasso and K.Sach will meet D.Frasers team. There will be social bowls also for the other players but could you please put you name on the board prior or by 9am at the latest next Tuesday. The Club Pairs and Hilda Goodwin Shield are up on the board so please get you name up on the board if you wish to play.
Happy Birthday to President Una for Wednesday. May you enjoy many more years of bowling. Good luck to all the girls competing in the District Triples. The club is hoping Cooma can come up some winning combinations this season.
