Corowa Civic Bowls

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) -

Mid Week Pen­nant – The pleas­ant weather con­di­tions this week were a re­lief for ev­ery­one.

Re­sults were a mix­ture of ela­tion and de­fla­tion.

Di­vi­sion B1 Civic hosted Wodonga 2 re­sult­ing in a 23 shot win for Civic.

Ian Bil­ney 29/14 and Col Hen­dren 27/15 played well to lead all day.

Eileen Ide’s rink 18/22 strug­gled for the first few ends but with some steady bowl­ing worked their way back into the game and was un­lucky to trail by 4 shots af­ter 25 ends.

Di­vi­sion 3B trav­elled to Moyhu and came home win­ners on the day.

Mau­reen Hut­son 24/14 NS Genise McFar­lane 25/14, both these rinks were able to over­come the chal­lenge of play­ing on syn­thetic sur­face to record a good re­sult.

Joan Wood 15/24 strug­gled as their op­po­nents played very well to out­class them on the day how­ever Civic were able to hold a 12 shot win.

Di­vi­sion B4 played Wodonga and came up against three strong rinks.

An­nette King 15/30, Sheila Llewe­lyn 20/29, found the op­po­si­tion too con­sis­tent on the day.

Hank Van Sum­meren 22/21 tried hard all day to close the gap but Wodonga went on to a 23 shot win. Week­end Pen­nant –

A1 made the jour­ney to Myrtle­ford where they scored a very em­phatic win 130/70.

This win was high­lighted by a huge win by Max Scanlon’s rink which com­prised W Mills, B Dav­i­son and K Wid­di­son; they won 49/10 and al­lowed their op­po­si­tion only 6 ends.

Scott Wid­di­son rink was in con­trol all day win­ning 31/12.

Tom Webb’s boys had a tight tus­sle for most of the day but came home strongly, scor­ing on 7 of the last 9 ends to win 25/19.

Dawn Hay­man got off to a slow start, drew level on the sec­ond last end then scored a 5 to win by the mar­gin 25/20.

This win sees them at the top of the lad­der on per­cent­age from Wodonga.

A3 trav­elled to Moira with a de­gree of con­fi­dence af­ter de­feat­ing them in the first round.

At the end of the day it be­came clearly ap­par­ent why Moira are on top of the lad­der by a fair mar­gin af­ter they de­feated Civic by 21 shots 88/109.

Only suc­cess­ful rink on the day was Greg Leahy’s rink of B Davies, E Ide and A Martin as they recorded a good win 29/19.

John White and his boys lost 21/32 af­ter be­ing level at the half­way mark.

Lyn­ton Ford’s rink had a tight tus­sle all day but went down 23/27 and Bill Docherty’s team had a day they would pre­fer to for­get, their game was lost be­tween ends 12 and 19 when they lost 21 shots to 4 and they fi­nally went down 15/44.

B2s trav­elled to Be­nalla and were con­vinc­ingly beaten 66/96.

Marg Wat­sons lost 22/37, Bob Kilpatrick went down 13/35 and it was left to Mark Mill’s team to re­store some pres­tige in win­ning 31/24.

Our B3 side played at home host­ing Wangaratta and they scored a very good win 85/62.

Stand in skip­per Lyn Pyke to­gether with G Bee, G Barry and J Cur­tis scored an im­pres­sive win 36/13 - well done Lyn and your boys.

Rob Tal­bot won 29/22 but Bruce Cor­co­ran went down 20/27 (no doubt Bruce was think­ing about his im­pend­ing over­seas trip).

At this point in time and with 2 rounds to be played, Civic has all 4 teams in the fi­nals of week­end pen­nant.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Joan Wood, Estelle Hollingsworth and Mar­garet Ship­cott on be­com­ing Ladies Triples Cham­pi­ons for 2017.

Sun­day 19 saw a very suc­cess­ful so­cial day at the Club, two games of bowls, a de­li­cious lun­cheon pre­pared by Mau­reen and her helpers and the Re­verse Draw com­pe­ti­tion com­pleted a great day.

The re­verse draw win­ners were Bruce Ash, Len Wil­son, Peter Bates and Ian Bar­ber who shared $1500.

Bowls win­ners were A Bartlett and H El­liot from K Wid­di­son, S Martin and B Ide.

Very in­ter­est­ing to note the four spi­ders com­pe­ti­tion were all won by ladies Jan Robin­son, Margo Pritchard, Anake Hoey and Judy Wil­lett.

Op­por­tu­nity was taken dur­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties to up­date our mem­bers of all ac­tiv­i­ties be­fore us over the next 8-9 weeks.

The club will be look­ing to sup­port from mem­bers in help­ing out in these big events com­ing up and thus ease the bur­den on the reg­u­lars who con­stantly front up.

Good to see Fred Robin­son back on his feet and also good to see that Pat Cul­hane is out of hos­pi­tal.

We wish all those on the not so well list a speedy re­turn to good health.
