BA­ROOGA SPORTS BOWLS

The Cobram Courier - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

No play the week be­fore in Keith’s Fri­day meant there were a lot of ea­ger bowlers keen to have a go last week. A minute’s si­lence was ob­served be­fore play to recog­nise the pass­ing of Fred Pin­nuck’s wife Sally and Peter Rus­sell’s brother Graeme. In great spring weather 36 bowlers played in the hope of win­ning the jack­pot of $104, but once again it was safe, so this week it will be worth $119. Win­ners of the day were the com­bi­na­tion of Bill Hoog and Archie El­lis with +21 from a strong field of two-game win­ners. Sec­ond was Ken An­der­son and Kevin Kennedy with +19.

Best first game win­ners were Peter Lin­quist and Vin Toohey with +10 and best sec­ond game win­ners were John Can­ning and John Sul­li­van, also on +10.

The prac­tice match against Corowa was played with 10 rinks be­ing played. It was a good op­por­tu­nity to get into the swing of play­ing pen­nant once again. Corowa won the day over­all by 10 shots but it was more the chance to prac­tice than any­thing else and we all had a good hit out. Next year it is our turn to travel to Corowa. An­other prac­tice match is sched­uled for next Sat­ur­day at East Shep­par­ton. Cars will leave from the club about 11.30 am.
