The weather may have turned chilly with some much needed rain but that didn’t stop the ladies from Young Women’s Bowling Club from playing the Club Pairs Championships which was won by Margo Parker and Elsie Hines. Over the week the ladies also once again brought the return of Social Bowls on Thursday.
BOWLERS BATTLE BAD WEATHER FOR CLUB PAIRS CHAMPIONSHIPS
Last Thursday was cold and windy and eventually wet.
Eight of the women in the Semi final of the Club Pairs Championships battled everything the day threw at them to play.
Finally one team conceded and the other game was stopped because of rain.
In better weather the game was continued on Tuesday, Heather Bailey and Judith Mulligan had to score a three on the last end to draw the game against Jill Rosen and Jenny Holt which they did and had to play an extra end.
Heather and Judith won the Semi Final.
The final played that afternoon between Heather and Judith and Elsie Hines and Margo Parker was a very close game with a score of 21 to 19 with Elsie and Margo being the winners.
There was a great roll up of spectators to watch.
Margo and Elsie have won the Major Pairs for the last three years.
They hope to play in the last Champion of Club Champion Pairs in October at Rouse Hill or Carlingford as it is being replaced by the Regional Challenge.
THURSDAY WOMEN’S SOCIAL BOWLS BACK ON
Women’s Thursday Bowls is back on the programs.
Twilight Bowls on Wednesdays seemed to put paid to the Women’s Thursday Bowls but they have finished and Thursday Bowls will be up and running and a second day of play and practice can only help.
