Men turn social games into competition practice

AFTER all the dramas at the Kiama Bowling Club last week, it was a little difficult to concentrate on bowls.

However, bowlers are a hardy lot and the ladies were the first on the greens with social triples on Tuesday.

Winners were M. Dobe, E. Egan and G. Reynolds.

The runners-up were C. Dawson, L. Mair and M. Walker.

Thursday social was a closely fought pairs competition with winners declared E. Parkin and C. Dawson.

M. Walker featured again in the ladies' singles championship semi-final on Tuesday, defeating C. Rymer 24-13. The other semi-final was a close match between J. Kirk and J. Hair with J. Kirk running out winner 25-22.

Only social games were able to be completed by the men during the week with Major Singles Competition matches scheduled for Sunday.

However, combatants got in plenty of practice with a combination of pairs and triples fighting hard for the honours.

In the event a pairing of P. McBeath and J. Nisbet ran out winners over a triples team of M. Hair, J. Fox and B. Hudson.

The regular Thursday pairs competition was taken out by A. Rogers and W. Jones.

The weather held on Saturday to enable good competition.

Triples games were played and winners were S. Edwards, C. Jones and J. Edwards with runners-up K. Cotter, K. Thomas and D. Downton.

With our pennants competition rapidly drawing to a close our twos teams are very competitive and leading the table.

Their next match is at home so come on down and give the boys some support on Saturday.
