The spi­der played was won by Gra­ham Hen­der­son.

Two games were played and the win­ning team was Danny Shel­ley, Wayne Gun­der­son and Dale Pol­lock and in sec­ond place were John Vossen, John An­der­son and Bob Di­jk­man. Men’s Pairs Fi­nal Round 7 con­tin­ued on Fri­day, Novem­ber 2.

It was an over­cast day to continue the pairs.

T Gray and D Doughty played W Tay­lor and G Allen.

P Cole­man and C Dean had a bye.

It proved to be a close­ly­fought game that W Tay­lor and G Allen won on the last bowl.

Fi­nal: This game also proved to be a nail biter. At first, the scores were pretty close, then P Cole­man and C Dean started to open up a slight gap.

On the fi­nal end, W Tay­lor re­quired four to draw. With the fi­nal bowl, he picked up the jack and it moved to the side and sud­denly he had his four.

On the ex­tra end the pres­sure was get­ting to both teams but W Tay­lor and G Allen took that end and the Pairs Ti­tle.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to War­ren and Gra­ham.
