Huge turnout of bowlers for ham day fes­tiv­i­ties

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
