Huge turnout of bowlers for ham day festivities
IT WAS another great turn-out on Saturday for the Bunn and Balshaw Ham Day.
The club greatly appreciates the long-term support of the sponsors and wishes to thank them for hosting such a successful day of bowls.
Once again it was an afternoon of full rinks and friendly competition with a good turn-out of new and first time bowlers keeping the competition eventful and the old pros on their toes.
The results: A Douglas, T Pitt P Cleary defeated B Dwyer, S Parks, C Dwyer 23-22. S Renton, L Valentine, D Egan defeated K Pitt, B Gard, R Ashford 20-14. B Butler, C Andreassen, J Hocking beat F Jones, C Pitt, B Wolland 22-15. Dick Pitt, G Marsh, N Tesch beat L Campbell, G Wilmott, J Girgenti 23-13. R Gray, B Barabas, D Beaumont defeated Morrie, T Pisot C Wills 29-18. R Pitt, A Christie, R Parkes defeated S Chatterton, T Elcoate, C Maxted 26-9, and “the hams were thrown” at R Williamson, B Hendo and D Blain by J Hills, E Pitt and D Pitt who were defeated 40-8.
Another festive day is planned for this Saturday with the club presentation day. The games will start at 1:30pm and names must be in by 12:30. Visitors and new bowlers are welcome.
Formal competition resumes in February so now is the ideal season for new bowlers to come along and learn the game in a very relaxed atmosphere and mufti dress is no problem.
In ladies results, the last game for this resulted in a win for Jan Gard and Glenis Sharpe (+26) and the runners-up were Joan Day and Estelle O’rourke (+21).
Bowls will return on January 12 with a meeting at 10.30am.
