Vic Open: This was a great week with some fantastic bowls being played and great bowlers bring out the best in the rest of us.
I had the pleasure of bowling with my hubby in the mixed pairs, with no great success.
I also played in the ladies’ pairs with Kate from Warrnambool at Ky Valley Golf and Bowls club, again no successes, and in the ladies’ triples at Shepparton Golf with Cecilia and Robyn on the Monday.
Scarily Robyn tried hard to pull us over the line however another team in our section had a huge win in their second game.
The thought of playing in the knock-out rounds was a bit daunting to me.
Midweek Division 5: On Tuesday, November 13, VT travelled to Colbinabbin and had a laugh when someone turned up to roll the green when we’d nearly finished our roll-up.
It was a successful day for our team, winning 58/37 (140).
E Anderson, I Chanter, P Delahey, D Taylor defeated R Weeks 25/20.
L Russell-Jones, M Delahey, K Byrne, D Underwood defeated D Chandler 33/17.
Last Tuesday we played at home against Avenel.
While they had one depleted rink overall, we only won 52/49 (12-2).
E Anderson, D Taylor, M Daley, L Holmes defeated N Billingsley 32/14.
H Biach, H Daley, P Delahey, L Russell-Jones lost to M Damaron 20/35.
Weekend Division 5: Our home game against Shepparton RSL on Saturday, November 24, on a heavy green, gave us a win 77/64 (12-4), however only one rink got over the line.
K Byrne, R Wither, N Grigg, D Underwood lost to R Bone 17/22.
G Jones, M Howard, D Taylor, G Tilbrook defeated J Johnstone 42/15.
K Beaton, W Wood, M Delahey, J Duncan lost 18/27.
This week we travelled to Stanhope where the conditions were warm but enjoyable.
Missing a few players this week was not good for the team as a whole, and we played short in one team. We went down 58/86(0-16). D Underwood, W Wood, M Delahey, J Duncan lost to B Spencer 28/21.
K Byrne, I Chanter, N Grigg lost to C Evans 33/17.
