Ladies’ Day goes down to the wire

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

BOWLS: Ladies’ Day on Tues­day was a bet­ter-than-av­er­age day, with 14 bowlers on the green. There was one game of triples and one game of fours.

Best win of the day was the triples.

Di Dob­bins, Lane Telford and Elaine Had­low achieved a score of 22 to de­feat the team of Con­nie Reimers, Mar­garet Heeney and Di­nah Rein­tals, whose score was 14.

A nail-bit­ing match played by Heather James, Eileen Hal­l­i­day, Jenny Ry­der and Margo Stan­ley re­sulted in a win with a score of 21 when they played against Louise Ma­hony, Ladda Pur­die, Noela White­head and Val Hadley on 20.

The jack­pot was not won so next week’s pool will be greater.

Men’s Day at­tracted only six bowlers for the so­cial game. Bob Fin­ney, John Ryan, and Neil More went up against Jim Cairns, Domenic Sposato and John Sladek. No scores were recorded.

The first round of the Men’s Se­nior Sin­gles was con­tested on Wed­nes­day. Two games were sched­uled on this day. Rick Brunell was to play Paul Os­borne. Rick won by the for­feit of Paul.
