Airlie Bowls News

Last week at Airlie Bowls Club, the matches were filled with victories and upsets.

On Tuesday afternoon, there was a big turnout for Ladies social day, where Di Jackson played outstanding bowls with the help of John Brown and skipper Elaine Kippen, winning against Pam Collins, Mark Mawson, and Lane Telford 17-9.

Sandra Argo, Jill Spencer, Tina Schubert, and skipper Joan McGrath defeated the odds-on favourite team to become the winners of the Ladies Fours.

Wednesday's Social Jackpot Bowls was brilliantly run by Rick Galea, with Tony Whitehorn's team winning against Warren Mills at Skip. Saturday morning's Scroungers saw Ash Warland as the big winner of the round, while Andy McDougall took home the B Grade final.

On Sunday afternoon, Tony Whitehorn's team won with the lowest winning margin and Tony received the prestigious Health Hub award. Bobby McMahon beat Stephen Lawrie 25-13, and the Ladies pairs had a tough match with Di Jackson and Betty Whitehorn losing to Betty Nicole and Carol Crosbie.

The results of Wednesday night's Business House Bowls were not available at the time of the report but will be updated next week.
