Kinnears knocked out of pairs
Shane and Scott Kinnear gave the Champion of Champions pairs competition a shake on Saturday, but they fell short in their campaign.
The duo was knocked out in the first round of the competition.
Closer to home, 16 players took on social play on Sunday. Jeanette Calway, Carlie Albertson, Phillip Brown and Pepper Evans defeated Norma Daniels, Lill Burke, Trevor Trevillian and Barry Zillmann 24-17, while Arthur Williams, Trudy Hanne, Lois Read and Rick Williams ousted Fran Porter, Flo O’Hanlon, Joy Jeffries and Vince Olsen 24-19.
This weekend the men’s 200s carnival is on, with five games played over the two days of competition.
There are full greens with 26 teams taking part on the weekend, with players from Tamworth, Townsville, Ingham, Bowen and Mackay taking part.
The event starts at 8.30am on Saturday morning with a calcutta.
There will be no social bowls this weekend.
The final of the Club Championship Pairs went right down to the wire on Wednesday.
Dot Hinschen and Lois Read cemented their shot advantage in the final few ends of the game, with Jo Peasley and Barbara Dammash trying to make up a small but seemly insurmountable deficit with ends running out. Dot and Lois won 26-16. There was also one game of Consistency Singles played. Even though it was a first-round game, it was played with the intensity of a final.
Maree Daffara was ahead most of the game, with Heather Brown catching her up briefly.
At the completion of the 20th end scores were level at 100, though Heather had a minus five at this point of the game. Ultimately Maree won 109 to Heather’s 101.
In social play, Annette Patullo, Betty Evans and John Dammash defeated Adrian Watt, Lill Burke, Norma Daniels and Pepper Evans 1715, while Cathy Holmes and Flo O’Hanlon knocked over Fran Porter and Heather Patullo 29-12.
