What a week­end, what an event! That is the ver­dict from all those who par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual Old Buck-spon­sored King Bowl­ing Club Clas­sic played last week­end.

A to­tal of 22 teams turned out, the ma­jor­ity from East London, while Cath­cart and Ko­mani were also rep­re­sented.

The win­ning team from the Com­rades Club who ended on 101 points, was cap­tained by Mickey Un­der­wood, while the side from Old Sel­bor­ni­ans, cap­tained by Des Knock, ended sec­ond on 86 points.

Third place went to Rob Kelly of Kidd’s Beach with King’s Ti­nus Terblanche fourth.

The win­ners walked away with R8,000, while those teams who came sec­ond, third and fourth won R6,000, R4,000 and R2,000 re­spec­tively.

At the prize-giv­ing, King Bowl­ing Club pres­i­dent Gor­don McCune ex­pressed his thanks to all bowlers, as well as the kitchen and green­keep­ing staff.

“A lot of work goes on be­hind the scenes in or­gan­is­ing such a week­end and as a club, we are grate­ful to all those bowlers who sup­ported us,” he said.

All bowlers were treated to steaks on the Satur­day evening while a lot of fun was had in the pub.

On the Fri­day evening prior to the Clas­sic, King vice-pres­i­dent Ivor Penny pre­sented 96 brand new bowl­ing mats which will re­place the old ones which are 13 years old.

The old mats were or­gan­ised by past pres­i­dent Roy Stone.The new mats were spon­sored by Penny and his wife Bron­wyn.
