On Tuesday September 12 we held our Wingham Open Pairs event, sponsored by our Patron Noreida Fotheringham. What a day it was! Both greens were full with a full day of bowls. Pairs x two  – 18 end games – that’s 72 walks up and down the green and the weather turned it on with a hot 30+ degrees.

Some great scores were played and the winners were:

Fourth place: Wingham team of Claudia O’Donnell, Denise Matheson – 2W +23 – M18 – Wingham.

Third  place: Forster team of Lorraine Mazurek, June Wall. 2W +23 – M26.

Second place: Forster team of Carol Wright, Gail Gorman. 2W + 24.

First place: Wingham team of Alana Burns, Lorraine Rothe. 2W +25 ends.

Many clubs from around the district played and two teams from Wingham and two from Forster went home with the booty.

Thank you to all those who played bowls, provided home made slices for morning tea, lunch by our two chefs (delicious), social club workers. Special mention to our much loved patron/major sponsor Noreida Fotheringham, for without sponsors we could hold this event. Many thanks, Noreida.
