Club cham­pi­onships ready to roll

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


LAST Wed­nes­day was the first day back on the green for the men with­out the ladies and the jack­pot was won on the first day.

Gra­ham Hein, Steve Tat­tam and John For­nasiero de­feated Wally Gray, Keith Beetham and Barry Zill­man 25-15, while Jim Cairns, Bruce Pur­die and Nik Fern­bach de­feated Keith Dunn, Herb Se­comb and Ken Ry­der 27-20.

The men’s club cham­pi­onship sheets will avail­able this week and all play­ers must reg­is­ter their names for im­por­tant up­com­ing events.

Busi­ness house bowls saw a small drop in num­bers which made the com­pe­ti­tion dif­fi­cult for or­gan­is­ers. If play­ers are un­able to at­tend on the night they must or­gan­ise a re­place­ment or con­tact Sandy on 0488 754 184.

Sun­day so­cial bowls saw some great play with Wally Gray, Jill Spencer and Kevin Jewell de­feat­ing Henny Tat­tam, Eric Bot­tle and Rick Wil­liams 17–7, while Jenny Ry­der (dou­ble lead), Garry North, Sandy Bar­rile and Mae Se­comb de­feated Jenny Ry­der, Mau­reen Barnard, Herb Se­comb and Margo Stan­ley 17–7, los­ing the game on a count back.

Lad­die Pur­die, Ken Ry­der and Elaine Had­low de­feated Bruce Pur­die, Ali­son Holmes and Steve Tat­tam 16-8.

This Sun­day’s event is spon­sored by Whit­sun­day Travel Ser­vice (Eric Bot­tle and Dale Hell) and there will be great prizes up for grabs.


The ladies open­ing day was held last Tues­day and was a great suc­cess with bowlers trav­el­ling from Wan­garatta, Bowen, Collinsville and Mackay for the event.

Win­ners for the day were No­lene May, Merle El­phin­stone and Ma­ree Daf­fara on 14 points, while the run­ners up were Rhonda Lloyd, Mar­garet Heeney and Margo Stan­ley on 14 points.

Other re­sults were Henny Tat­tam, Wendy Pomeroy and Ali­son Holmes on 13 points, Mar­garet Wil­son, Fely Dun­can and Regina Aquilina on 12 points and Irene Laird, Carol Mered­ith and Elaine Had­low on 11 points.

All ladies club cham­pi­onship sheets are on the no­tice­board and all in­ter­ested play­ers must reg­is­ter their names on the sheets.

The more com­peti­tors the bet­ter. The ladies monthly meet­ing will be held next Tues­day, March 11 at 10.30am.

Bowlers who come a lit­tle early will have a treat in store for them be­fore the meet­ing.

The meet­ing will be used to dis­cuss the club’s up­com­ing Pres­i­dents at Home Day, so it is im­por­tant that all bowlers at­tend if pos­si­ble.

ON THE KITTY: Ladda Pur­die was in fine form while com­pet­ing in a game of mixed triples at the Air­lie Beach Bowls Club on Sun­day af­ter­noon.
