Great Bowls Played

On Wednesday for Social Bowls, we welcomed Russell Jackson, Alan Pershouse, and Andrew Butler from Airlie Beach who were taking the opportunity to have a game in preparation for this weekend's pennants.

Jim Bownds, Bruce Uhe, and Sandy Daffara defeated John Anderson, Pat Bownds, and Russell Jackson 27 - 15; Arthur Griffith, Alan Pershouse, and Heather Brown defeated Alen Sanderson, Philip Brown, and Andrew Butler 24 - 17.

Sunday's Social bowls numbers were down due to the number of players playing in pennants.

Heather Brown played double third.

Margy Burnett, John Burnett, Heather Brown, and John Anderson defeated Lee King, Alen Sanderson, Heather Brown, and Arthur Griffith 20 - 16.

Division 1 Pennants had a great weekend defeating Northern Beaches on Saturday 63 - 45 having wins on all 3 rinks so taking 6 points plus a margin of 28.

On Sunday the teams were firing again defeating Airlie Beach 68 - 36 earning 6 points plus a margin of 32.

This should put Division 1 into 2nd place.

Division 5 didn't have quite as happy a weekend having two away games on fast synthetic greens and player unavailability due to Mother's Day.

They had a loss to Souths Suburban on Saturday and a loss to Airlie Beach on Sunday.

They will be looking forward to the comfort of grass next Saturday.
