Quiet Time For Du­ral Bowlers?

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

With no club com­pe­ti­tions un­der­way at present at the club, a quiet time was an­tic­i­pated, but the top bowlers had other ideas and en­tered the district pairs com­pe­ti­tions, both the open and the se­nior sec­tions in Mitchell District. On day 1 in the Se­nior com­pe­ti­tion, Di Sweeney with Liz Whe­lan won both their matches but were elim­i­nated the next day. In the Open sec­tion, Robin David­son with Eileen Brom­ley and Sue Vindin with Chris­tine played su­perb bowls, win­ning both their matches. Sue and Chris kept up their great bowls and reached the fi­nal, go­ing down by a shot,12-13 to a highly re­garded team from The Hills. Nat­u­rally the club is very proud of th­ese achieve­ments spe­cially as there were mem­bers of the state squad play­ing.

Back at Du­ral, the ladies played a Tro­phy Days com­pe­ti­tion when ran­dom teams were pit­ted against each other over two days with the player with the high­est to­tal num­ber of shots win­ning. The win­ner was Mar­garet Yeend. Kath Sach and Leone Lesslie shared sec­ond place and Bar­bara Roberts fourth. Con­grat­u­la­tions, as to gain top points over two days is very dif­fi­cult. Twelve mem­bers are head­ing south to Bo­maderry for the an­nual State Car­ni­val where they will play two games each day for three days with the six­teen top-scor­ing teams play­ing off on the Thurs­day and Fri­day. One team is hop­ing to im­prove on their pre­vi­ous sec­tion wins and the oth­ers will be look­ing to em­u­late them.
