Ladies teams play fours
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.
