Porters wins busi­ness comp

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


A FEAR of some­thing un­to­ward hap­pen­ing on April fool’s day must have kept some of the ladies at home, as only five turned out for ladies day, so two men joined the group.

With Nik Fern­bach act­ing as lead for both teams, they were able to get two teams to­gether for one game of pairs.

Team one con­sisted of Nik Fern­bach, Henny Tat­tam, Lane Telford and Margo Stan­ley scor­ing 15 de­feat­ing Nik Fern­bach, Ladda Pur­die, Domenico Sposato and Regina Aquilina with a score of 6.

This week in the pairs Barry Zill­man and Nik Fern­bach scored 23 to beat John For­nasiero, Domenico Sposato and Bruce Pur­die with a score of 16 and Ricky Wil­liams and Jim Cairns scored 26 de­feat­ing Eric Bot­tle and Wally Gray and scor­ing 5.

Wed­nes­day night was the fi­nal game played in se­ries 11 of busi­ness house bowls. Porters Pounders were in a good po­si­tion to take out the tro­phy but a poor start hin­dered their game plan early on. At one point they were los­ing by 7 points but man­aged to claw their way back into the game to even­tu­ally de­feat the team from Mitre 10.

Porters tak­ing the tro­phy de­pended on their near­est ri­val, Char­ter Yachts Aus­tralia not post­ing a win.

Char­ter Yachts were beaten by Whit­sun­day Tran­sit, which meant Porters won the shield by one point, for the fourth time in the 11 sea­sons. The se­ries awards were pre­sented last night as teams cel­e­brated with a fun night of bowls and a bar­beque. The third evening of the live mu­sic was held on Satur­day night and new and old mu­si­cians kept the crowd en­ter­tained.

Sun­day bowls was en­joyed by 14 bowlers. It was a beau­ti­ful warm day and one game of triples and two games of pairs was played.

The triples win­ners who won the money on the day were Wally Gray, Mar­garet Dou­glas and Keith Beetham scor­ing 17, de­feat­ing Bruce Pur­die, Tess Walker and Paul Os­borne with a score of 7.

The pairs team of Margo Stan­ley and David Dias scored 14 to beat Nik Fern­bach and Kevin Jewell who scored 10, while the sec­ond pairs team of Betty Ni­colle and Gary North scored 16, to eas­ily de­feat Ladda Pur­die and Mar­garet Heeney with a score of 8.

A cor­rec­tion must be made from last week’s re­port on a game of men’s pairs. Bruce Pur­die and Domenico Sposato scored 13, to de­feat Richard Whitehouse and Steve Tat­tam with a score of 7.

There is still room for more teams in the Whit­sun­day Coast Four’s Car­ni­val on June 7-8, with prizes of $5000.

In­ter­ested play­ers should con­tact Margo Stan­ley on 4948 0444 or stan­blds@big­pond.com.
