Porters wins business comp
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.
