KIAMA Bowling Club's No 2 pennant side lost to Windang in the grand final, but finishing top of their division was a worthy feat.
The experience was worth its weight in gold and we can't wait until next year to show that we can secure the flag.
Our ladies got stuck into their triples championship last week: V. Collins, J. Tarbert and L. Mair beat M. Partridge, M. Dobe and A. Evans 22-11. R. Jones, L. Martin and B. Campbell beat K. Rymer, E. Parkin and J. Hair 17-10; and S. Brown, M. Minet and J. Brownlie beat E. Egan, N. Brown and B. Roser by 31-9. The team of S. Brown, M. Minet and J. Brownlie backed up on Thursday with a win over S.

On Thursday there was still space for singles play, M. Sultana again featuring as a winner.
The men played Wednesday triples with J. Fox, J. Tomlinson and K. Bratby declared winners. M. Kunzler, J. Mears and W. Partridge were runners-up.
