PLAYING with Dianne Lewis, Leonie Gilford and Chris Kane, Peter Hall as skip takes his team into the final with an extra end required when the score ended at 21 apiece after the allocated 21 ends.
Their opponents were Greg Bartlett as skip and Narelle Foy, Claudia O'Donnell and Howard Snelson as a sub for David O'Donnell and they got away to a handy lead of 10-3 after seven ends. They held the lead until the 19th end but the final result went to Peter Hall when his final bowl won the game for his team.
In the other game Graeme Ireland led his team of Peter Williams, Margaret Hinton and Nancy Sandford to a resounding victory of 38-8 over Ron Lollback, Janet Nash, Mick and Maureen Hollebone. It was necessary to re-constitute the formation of this team following a family bereavement that forced Graeme and his partner Karen to drop out.
TOM Moore, Ian Scarr and Gerry De Pyper ran away with this event with a +27 against Brian Williams, Mal Cannon and Guy Watts. Peter Holden, Daniel Leadbeater and Max Cumberland got a +12 over Peter Williams, Eric Weir and John Magree.
In a closer contest Warwick Lewis, Dick Connell and Mick Hollebone just got home with a +three against Stan Burnell-Jones, Dallas Hammond and Ben Wolters.
ICAC could be called in shortly if these following players win any further meat trays or vouchers Peter Howarth, Peter Tutty and Tony Colechin (who won the event against Allan Dodd, Rod and Hunter Payton). Daniel Leadbeater, Nick Savage and Mick Hollebone, can't win a game now but pick up the 'lucky card' prize. Paul Swan, Snow and Rod Trenchard can consider themselves unlucky as they easily won against Nick and his crew. Tony Lowman, John Crossingham and Jay Kleindeinst continue to combine well and they defeated Rex Dawson, Les Rose and Rod Moore 17-6. Jim Gillogly, Brad Humphries and Alan Cox defeated Peter Kriss, Trevor Abbott and Lorne Pilotto 19-8. Mark Hammond, Brian Flood and David O'Donnell had a 13-10 win over Wayne Goward, Neville Bell and Phill Anderson.
PETER Tutty and Tina Rushworth celebrated following their +11 to win this event and they account for Jill and David Gosling. Runners up on a count back were Jim Gillogly, Marie Grofus and Lillian Cross and they defeated Ben Wolters, Marie as swinging lead and Janet Nash. The 'lucky-card' money went to Jim Grofos and Faye Wallace even though they went down by a shot to Glen Dennes and Maureen Hollebone. Ron Lollback and Denise Polley had a good win over Robyn Gillogly and Claudia O'Donnell. Mick Hollebone and Elaine Holden also had a good win against Sini Wolters and Reg Wallace. Laurelle Dennes and Guy Watts won their game against June Pedron and Alan Cox.
Saturday presentation day
FORTY two players entered and margins decided the results with some rather large differences. The 'outer-town' combination of Ben Wolters, Robert Allan and Greg Bartlett with a +24 took home the larger sides of meat when they put it over Graeme Ireland, Daniel Leadbeater and Peter Brown. With a +18 result Howard Snelson, Dallas Hammond and Col Webster made sure Jim Gillogly, Paul Swan and Bob Craig went home 'empty handed'. Also with a big margin of +17 Peter Williams, Barry Kershaw and Peter Tutty put Laurie Mullen, Alan Cox and Tim Richardson out of the game. Peter Holden, Hunter Payton and Garry Williams got a +eight against Glen Dennes, Mick Hollebone and Nick Savage. Tom Moore, Stan Burnell-Jones and Gerry De Pyper had a +10 win against Brian Williams, Dick Connell and Max Cumberland. Warwick Lewis, Ian Scarr and Peter Kriss got a +eight against Ashley Hinton, Tor Proctor and Snow Trenchard. Col Watson, Barry Smith and Rod Trenchard just got there with a +two over Glen Gilford, Jake Hinton and David O'Donnell. At presentation all those championship winners and runners up for 2013 were rewarded except for the mixed pairs and fours and that will be finalised soon.
THE annual 'Port' day is scheduled and play will be in mufti with the sheet full at this stage - so if you have any reason for being unable to attend please inform the bowls secretary ASAP.
