Air­lie Beach beat Mar­ion bowlers

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

Ladies’ day on Tues­day, May 10, Leone Ryan, Con­nie Reimers and Regina Aquilina shaped up to win by a healthy mar­gin in a game of triples against Del Lacey, Louise Ma­hony and Noela White­head. The score was 18–6.

The rea­son for the low num­bers in the so­cial arena was a Round 2 game of triples in the com­pe­ti­tion am­phithe­atre.

Jenny Ry­der, Henny Tat­tam and Mar­garet Heeney stood their ground and soundly de­feated the team of Di Dob­bins, Lane Telford and Elaine Had­low. Tal­lies fin­ished at 23–19.

Wed­nes­day was men’s so­cial games and with 12 avail­able to play, two games of triples were the ideal.

Nik Fair­bank, Jim Cairns and Paul Os­borne pit­ted them­selves against Steve Tat­tam, Dave Stock and Norm Camp­bell (all the way from Perth). It was a no con­test as Nik, Jim and Paul took the win eas­ily by scor­ing 27–17.

The sec­ond game of triples saw Tim Tay­lor, Ron Spence and John Sladek come out on top with a score of 22 against Keith Dunn, Barry Zill­mann and Gary Dick­son, also from Perth and only scor­ing an 11.

Once again the jack­pot did not go off and with its ris­ing worth the club might well be in­un­dated with bowlers, not re­ally in­ter­ested in the bowl­ing but just to have a crack at the jack­pot.

A men’s A-singles com­pe­ti­tion was fought be­tween Rick Galea and Rick Brunell with Rick Galea tak­ing the prize by scor­ing a 25 and Rick Brunell scor­ing a 19.

The fourth round of Se­ries 20 Busi­ness House Bowls was played in dry weather, un­like the week be­fore where it lightly rained all night. The teams are start­ing to sort them­selves into a more re­al­is­tic line up with only The Might­ies and Marine Pro­vi­sion­ing in equal first place and Bendigo Com­mu­nity Bank and Whit­sun­day Tran­sit in equal sec­ond place. Cold Rock, Fish­ing World, Big 4 Ad­ven­ture Park and Woolies All­sorts are all run­ning equal third with Porters and Best and Less run­ning fourth and fifth. The next round should see a more strung out line up of chal­lengers.

In the Men’s Pen­nant Divi­sion 2 chal­lenge fourth round, Air­lie Beach Bowls Club played against Mar­ion Bowls Club on Satur­day May 14 at home and the re­sults were very pleas­ing.

Team num­ber 1, Nik Fern­bach, Steve Roome, Kevin Jewell and Nathan Har­ri­ett held them­selves high and de­feated the Mar­ion 1 team 34–15.

Team num­ber 2, Rick Galia, Steve Tat­tam, Bob McMa­hon and Man Is­gro also had a good win against the Mar­ion boys 29–12. Team Num­ber 3, Derek Brown, Peter Law­ton, David Dias and An­drew Bell drew their game with the Mar­ion team at 16–all. This gave Air­lie Beach a score of 79, ag­gre­gate score of + 36 and match points of 2.5.

BOWL­ING TIME: Ron Spence, Graeme Herd, Patsy Black and Con­nie Reimers on the green.
