Last Sunday we had a reconstituted team as it was the first round and due to players being away.

Wayne Moon, Ray Dunstan and Al Phillips had a 21:14 win against John Baass, Daniel Tisdell and John Williams.

Wayne, Ray and Alan will play Cliff Nelson, Scott McKellar and Tony Bratton for a position in the finals against Barry Wright, John Gorton and Alf Davies who have had a bye and a forfeit to take a place in the finals.

Wednesday at One

Last week we had the Father’s Day bowls which was well supported and hosted by the ladies club. Many thanks to all involved.

Let’s hope that all players take advantage of the State Coaching team here next Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th.

It is open to all players, costs just $15 per day. You may choose one day or two. I recommend all players both learners and legends book in by next Wednesday at One.

Sunday morning bowls 

By John Stringer.

Twenty Six players took to the greens in lovely conditions for bowls last Sunday.

We had two resting touchers with Lindy Cannon and Russell Hodge playing those good bowls.

The winning rink went to Paul Baker and Peter Tisdell who defeated an improving Greg Hartwig and veteran Kerry Smith.

The losing rink went to John Lasker and Alan Smith who were soundly beaten by Lindy Cannon and Lyall Strudwick.

Funny how you can win something even if you lose the match.

Next week the Forbes Bakehouse monthly point score continues while some of the regular players will be playing in Dee Why, leaving the home comp wide open.

See you then.

Smile time

A visitor rang up our local bowling club, he said "Is that the local bowling club?" 

Our quick thinking barman said "It depends where you're calling from."
