Over 60s

TWENTY-SIX teams of four bowlers gath­ered at Rochester Bowl­ing Club for the third round of the lo­cal 60s and over Lawn Bowl­ing Cham­pi­onship.

A week ear­lier the day’s bowl­ing at Moama Bowl­ing Club had to be called off due to the weather con­di­tions.

This week 104 bowlers took to the greens at 1pm in blus­tery winds, with pre­dicted show­ers to fol­low.

Mid­way through our sec­ond game, down came the rain. We stopped play for early af­ter­noon tea; thanks to the Rochester ladies, it was re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated.

Af­ter the break play re­sumed in windy con­di­tons how­ever the greens were run­ning well.

Win­ners were from Lock­ing­ton - Neil Haines (our 60 and over president), Phil Collins, Jeff Shawcross and Don Smith.

Run­ners-up were from Moama - John Ryan, John Kiely, Greg Pet­ti­grove and Bob Bartlett.

The next game will be held at Kyabram on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 20 start­ing at 1pm.
