Du­ral Bowlers Change with the Times

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

Du­ral bowlers re­cently played in a new event for the club, TRO­PHY DAYS, which as the name im­plies was played over two days and all present on those days, played. It was not a chance for the best play­ers to gather to­gether and have a strong team. The in­di­vid­ual play­ers were graded for po­si­tions and then teams were drawn from a hat so that gen­er­ally they were well-mixed teams. Of course cream al­ways rises but only if it has sup­port. The ex­cit­ing re­sult when the in­di­vid­ual points were added had two top bowlers, Leone Lesslie and Robin David­son First and Third re­spec­tively with an ex­cited Ann Wil­son SEC­OND! Ann had only been play­ing about six weeks but ob­vi­ously put in some good bowls on the two days. Well done to all the play­ers, some of whom rarely play in com­pe­ti­tions.

The Mi­nor Sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion has been won by Ruth Keene who de­feated Chris­tine Fitzger­ald. Ruth is a con­sis­tently good bowler and Chris­tine who has only been play­ing two years, has had early suc­cesses, so the pair has a great fu­ture ahead. As usual when a fi­nal is on, the so­cial bowls suf­fers as the play­ers are of­ten keep­ing an eye on the big game.

Four teams from Du­ral are play­ing in a com­pe­ti­tion based at Cas­tle Hill on Satur­day morn­ings which al­lows for the women who are un­avail­able dur­ing the week to have some com­pe­ti­tion matches.

0432 181 635 and 0420 399 452 are the num­bers to ring for free coach­ing at Du­ral from Eileen or Ge­orge.
