After the cold and wet conditions led to the cancellation of bowls for Saturday the second semi-final of the club triples was transferred to Sunday afternoon.
Conditions were still cold but fine when Albert Carter, Joe Bargwanna and Geoff DeBritt played Mick Manning, Troy Summerfield and Joe Chambers in an closely fought game.
Geoff’s team took an early lead of 8–3 before Joe’s team hit back to have the score at 8–7 after 11 ends.
After 16 ends the teams were tied at 11–all and after 21 ends they were level again at 16–all.
With four shots on the next end Joe’s team held the advantage but Geoff’s team scored three shots on the next two ends to be just one behind going into the final end.
One shot to Joe’s team on the final end gave them the match 21–19. They will play Peter Berry, Bill Maloney and James Maloney in the final on Saturday.
Despite the cool conditions on Sunday morning there were 12 starters for the morning.
The winning score was 15 points for Walter Penfold and Troy Summerfield.
A field of eighteen players took advantage of the fairly pleasant conditions on Thursday afternoon.
Close games were the order of the day with the highest winning margin being nine shots for Max Penfold and Harold Anderson.
None of the winners were lucky enough to collect the jackpot.
During the week Garry Fish competed in the Wheelchair Sports NSW State Championships at Milton–Ulladulla.
In the pairs Garry teamed with Geoff Seton from Leichardt and they finished in second place in the competition – a great result. This is the final reminder that entries for the minor singles close on Sunday.
