Extreme end to summer bowls
THE last Tuesday evening in March saw the ninth and final round of the Bendigo Bank barefoot bowls summer competition.
Up to 20 teams competed for the honour of winning the John Sloan Memorial Shield, with the winning team ‘X-tremle unorganized’ comprising Scott Cooper, Craig Power and David Frecklington at nine wins.
A close second went to ‘Huskies’ Peter Antonella, Stef Antonella and Michael Piazza with seven wins, one draw and one loss.
Before Christmas, due to green renovations, 19 teams battled to win the shield in the spring competition.
Winners for the second consecutive year was ‘Smokers’ Peter James, Alan Hebeale and Denis Piazza with an undefeated six wins and close second was ‘Extreemle Unorganized’ with five wins and one loss.
Barefoot bowls organiser Col Byrne thanked all the helpers on each Tuesday night, for creating such an enjoyable successful evening for aspiring bowlers.
