BAROOGA SPORTS BOWLS
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.
