Week­end busy one on green

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


AF­TER a very wet Tues­day when the ladies couldn’t play bowls, Wed­nes­day men’s so­cial bowls saw the sun shine again.

The men had a great crowd with some vis­i­tors join­ing them for pairs and triples games.

The win­ners for the af­ter­noon were Col Howes and Jack Dob­bins de­feat­ing John For­ne­siero and Chris Frazer (vis­i­tor) 36-18.

On rink 4 Ted Evans, Man­fred Krud (vis­i­tor) and James Argo de­feated Mike Humphries (vis­i­tor), Herb Se­comb and Dennis Spruce (vis­i­tor) 21-18 and on rink 5 Howard Moulang, David Stock, Keith Beetham and Ryan West de­feated Eric Bot­tle, Peter Lawton and Ron Spence 25-13.

A round of the A grade sin­gles was played by Nik Fern­bach and Paul Os­borne with Fern­bach win­ning 25-11.

Half the jackpot was shared by two teams John For­nasiero, Chris Frazer and Ge­off Walk (vis­i­tor) and Dom Sposato.

There was no busi­ness house bowls last week due to the state of ori­gin and this weeks game was played on Tues­day night. Char­ter Yachts Aus­tralia are in first place, fol­lowed by Porters and then the Tradies.

On Satur­day, the men’s open sin­gles were played at the club and Bob McMa­hon de­feated Kevin Jewell 25-16, David Dias de­feated James Argo 25-8 and Nathan Har­riot de­feated Andy Bell 25-16.

Sun­day was a busy day with full rinks for all the triple games.

The win­ners on the day were Judi Wright (vis­i­tor), David Stock and Lyn Boxer (vis­i­tor) who de­feated David Car­lin, Richard White­house and Henny Tat­tam 16-8. On the next rink was a fours game be­tween David Zim­mer­man, Howard Moulang, Betty Hol­ness and Blanche Wood­bury (vis­i­tor) who beat Clive Wheeler, Mae Se­comb, Keith Beetham and Steve Tatam 16-8.

On the next rink Nik Fern­bach, Ron Spence, Chris Frazer (vis­i­tor) and Peter Lawton de­feated Jo Howes, Peggy Wheeler, Dom Sposato and Les­lie Car­lin 15-9 and then on the last rink Col Howes, Noela White­house and Betty Ni­colle de­feated Terry O’Cal­laghan, Doreen White­house and Mau­reen Barnard 14-10.

The ladies are play­ing in the John­ston Shield in Sa­rina on Tues­day and, if they win on Tues­day, Wed­nes­day also.

The club wel­comed vis­i­tors from down south Blanche Wood­bury, Terry O’Cal­laghan, Lyn Boxer and Les­ley and David Car­lin (past mem­bers) as well as Chris Frazer and Peggy and Clive Wheeler from Ade­laide and Judi Wright from Nam­bucca Heads NSW.

Play­ers are en­cour­aged to check the board for club matches reg­u­larly and ar­range their games ac­cord­ingly.
