Ladies teams play fours

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

Ladies day on April 19 im­mersed eight keen bowlers in a game of Fours.

Although Louise Ma­hony, Con­nie Reimers, Val Hadley and Elaine Had­low tried their ut­most to best Di Dob­bins, Noela White­head, Jenny Ry­der and Regina Aquilana it was not to be; Regina’s team came out on top with a score of 24, beat­ing Elaine’s team by six.

Men’s day was sim­i­lar in num­bers play­ing so­cial bowls and by us­ing Neil Moore as a dou­ble lead was able to play a game of Fours. Neil Moore, Nik Fern­bach, Jim Cairns and Dan McLeod only just won ov- er Neil Moore (dou­ble lead), David Stock, Keith Dunn and Tim Tay­lor. Scores be­ing 15 to 14. No one had any luck with the jack­pot draw so it waits for an­other week.

Two heats of the Men’s B Grade Pairs were played on Wed­nes­day.

John Ryan and Steve Tat­tam were suc­cess­ful in their game, beat­ing Rick Brunell and Peter Law­ton. Scores were 21 to 20.

Bruce Pur­die and Paul Os­borne were also suc­cess­ful in win­ning against Rick Galea and Wally Rein­tals by a small mar­gin, 21 to 19. The fi­nal will be played next Wed­nes­day be- tween Bruce Pur­die and Paul Os­borne against John Ryan and Steve Tat­tam, start­ing at 1pm.

Fri­day night Bare Foot Bowls con­tin­ues to get bet­ter, with­out doubt brought about by the hard work put in by the new Club Man­ager Ar­mando Is­gro and the very ca­pa­ble bar man­ager Jayne.

Satur­day brought the Men’s Pen­nant com­pe­ti­tion to Air­lie Beach. Mackay City trans­ported its Di­vi­sion 2 team to com­pete with Air­lie Beach for round 3. Team 1 skip Kevin Jewell was well and truly over­come by Mackay City Skip J. Neeve.

BOWL­ING ON: Ar­mando Is­gro, Bruce Pur­die and Derek (Hol­ly­wood) Brown on the green at Air­lie Beach.
