RESULTS FOR THE WEEK
This weekend saw a couple of our pennant sides make it just a little more difficult to take out a flag this year, while the other couple kept their chances well and truly alive with very good wins. The 2’s were at home against Berry and boy, did they do it tough against a very determined opposition. They won 8 1/2 to 1 1/2 but they had to wait until the very last bowl of the day to claim the victory- it was a classic nail-biter, there were quite a few heart-stopping moments on both sides as it went down to the wire. I am sure the poor manager lost a few years of his life as he watched from the sidelines.
The 5’s also played at home against Greenwell Pt. and, led by a rampant four of Nino Barca/ Mick Sawicki/ Col Jamieson/ & Struan Robertson came home with the win 9 points to 1.
Also at home, the 6’s met last Saturday’s opposition again, but this time the tables were turned with St. George’s Basin winning the big board by four and claiming 8 points to our 2. The 7’s travelled to Callala and it was not a happy time for them winning only one rink and thus only getting one point for the day.
Sunday saw the windy conditions persevere with seven club single games played and I don’t think any of the players enjoyed being out there. Sparkie had a great game against Paul James and came out the winner 31-29; Grassy had a win against Kingy, Stan Croker knocked out Col Ross; Dave Stephenson had a tight win against Mick Sawicki; Brian Openshaw overcame a persistent Kevin Lydiate; Ben Ireland got over the line against Graham Cooper; and a holidaying Ron Hanley dropped in on his way back from the Gold Coast to have a win against Bob Hall.
Now, important news here so listen up and pay attention. The Anzac Day game has been put back to 1 o’clock so that members who so desire can attend the march. So the format will be a b.b.q. lunch at midday followed by a short flag-raising ceremony then the game at 1 o’clock.
