18/11/14 Congratulations to Keith Banks, winning the final of the Men's Veterans Club Championship, with Russ Pickering a very creditable runner-up.
Torquay's Karen Harrington and Suzanne Lund, together with Joan Tennent and Lorraine Myers from Ocean Grove won the final of the Women's State Fours, played at Torquay over two days 13 & 14 Nov, 2014. As Geelong Region winners they will compete in Bowls Vic State Championship Week 18 - 24 April 2015 at Bendigo East Bowling Club.
Torquay Bowls Club is hosting the Women's State Fours competition and there was great bowling to be seen yesterday Nov 13th in the elimination rounds. Two Torquay teams were in the running, the team of Sandra Skene, Maureen Gribble, Lyn Kitchin & Kaye Robison won through to the 2nd round, but were defeated by an RSL team. The composite team of Torquay's Suzanne Lund and Karen Harrington with Joan Tennent and Lorraine Myers were too strong for a Highton team skipped by Wendy Ballentine and also an Ocean Grove team led by Marls Sutton, with convincing wins over both. They will now play in the semi finals being played today Friday 14th from 10.00am, hopefully getting through to the final this afternoon.
Our Service Members combined with Bankers are up & running! Several of our "young at heart" long serving members who are no longer able to join in mainstream bowls, have taken advantage of a new membership classification. With board approval, they are joining with bankers for a shortened social game on pennant days.
The final of the Men's Championship Pairs was played on Sunday 2nd Nov. In a close fought battle, Wayne Canning and Geoff Grigg defeated Peter Forbes and Brett Watson.
Peter, Brett, Wayne, Geoff
