TAREE Railway visited Wingham Bowling Club on Saturday last, bringing with them their number three and six grade pennant teams.
They returned taking with them a victory in each grade against our number two and fives, however, some valuable practice has again given our selectors an insight in what formation our teams will be at the commencement of the season. Next month we have two further trials, one being a return against Railway and the final one against Gloucester at home.
Wednesday social - 'Dad's Army'
THE best performed team on the day was that of Mal Cannon, Mick Hollebone and Bryan Page with their +7 win over Jack Pie, Rex Thomas and Max Cumberland.
Col Hinton and Ben Wolters finished with a +4 over Greg Bartlett and Barry Kershaw.
Peter Williams, Dallas Hammond and Gerry De Pyper had a +2 win against Stan Burnell-Jones, John Greentree and Guy Watts. Also with a two shot difference was the team of Eric Weir and Jake Kennett against Warwick Lewis and Peter Tutty.
THE team of Nick Savage, Mick Hollebone and Daniel Leadbeater seem to have a mortgage on taking home meat trays when their card was drawn again as the winning combination for the event.
The consolation went to their opponents on the same rink that being Paul Swan, Snow Trenchard and Peter Kriss.
In the battle of the 'old fellas' against the young'uns, the elder fellows of Alan Cox and brothers Jim and John Gillogly were just too good for Mark Hammond, Col McTaggart and David O'Donnell with a score of 16-11.
Peter Howarth and Tony Colechin put it over John Black and Bob Duncan 15-12. Peter Mills and Tony Lowman got home by a shot over Hunter Payton and Allan Dodd.
Friday mixed - single entry event
GEORGE Floyd and Janet Nash combined well to win the event with their +11 against Peter Tutty and June Pedron. Coming in with a +10 as runners-up were Ben Wolters and Leonie Gilford against the formidable outfit of John Black and Glen Dennes. A 'lucky-card' draw went to Bob Craig and Laurelle Dennes even though they went down to Lillian and Alan Cox. Mick Hollebone and Robyn Gillogly had a comfortable +9 win over Mal Cannon and Norma Platt and in a triples encounter, Jim Gillogly, Mick Hollebone and Guy Watts just scraped home by a shot over Ron Lollback, Claudia O'Donnell and Guy as 'swinging' lead.
PUBLIC holiday bowls at 3pm. Entries are being taken for an open nominated pairs event which will be in mufti.
