Bev Taylor defeated Juanita Matterson in a B singles game.

The social games winner, on Tuesday, was Maureen Barnard, Henny Tattam and Russ Jackson, who defeated Pam Collins, John Brown and Tony Whitehorn.

Men’s singles have started and results this week, so far, are Bob Spees showing exceptional form defeated Neil Moore.

John Trembath came from behind to defeat Rick Galea in a nail-biting game 25-24.

Nik Fernbach defeated Russ Jackson in another very close game 25-22.

One game that didn’t go ahead, as scheduled, was Bill Gordon versus Noel Crosbie. Bill has damaged both legs in an accident and will not be playing bowls for a while. All members wish Bill a speedy recovery.

Wednesday social day this week, all the games played were pairs. Nik Fernbach and Henny Tattam won the day with the largest winning margin.

One of the very close games was won by John Askew and David Meiklejohn against Col Morris and Mario DeMartini.

Members were delighted to have good friend Graeme Herd visit us from Atherton.

The school children’s competition is continuing. It starts at 4.30pm each Thursday afternoon.

The coaches are Margo Stanley and Mark Mawson. Margo can be contacted on 0412 469 989 or contact the club on 4946 7656.

In Sunday afternoon social bowls, Nik Fernbach continued his winning streak and skippered the team that won the day. Lucky Mario DeMartini won the Health Hub voucher.

Sadly, Scroungers this week needed to be cancelled because of the heavy rain on Saturday morning. Thanks to John Askew for running this popular competition.

Thanks to all the selectors who run the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday social bowls games.

All members, please do not forget the impending ‘extraordinary working bee’. All helpers welcomed.
