Sunday 18th February saw our Open Minor Singles Semi Finalists take to the green on a beautiful day for bowling. Marnie Last was up against Ray Casemore and Bernie Convery took on Dragan Jovanovic. With both games scoring 25-16, it was Ray and Bernie who won through. The Grand Final at 1pm proved to be very entertaining for the spectators. Bernie got out to a good start over the first six ends, but Ray fought back and on the thirteenth end scores were tied at 9-9. From there it was even scoring with the lead changing a number of times. It was Bernie who consolidated at the end to take the win. Well done to both.

After some delay in trying to find an available date, the Women's Pairs Grand Final was played on Sunday 21st January.
The pair of Jen Gaudion & Shani Hill were in the wings waiting for the final after receiving a walkover in the previous round.
The morning game was the Semi Final with Karen Wiener & Kas Harrington against Marnie Last & Simone McEwan. This proved to be an entertaining game for the spectators with scores locked at 13 - 13 after the required 15 ends. An extra end saw the shot being held by alternate teams, with the Karens holding 2 shots before Simone's last bowl, who managed to get one in to take the shot. The last bowl of the match was Kas' who ran at the head, managing to thread through a narrow path to the shot bowl, winning the game 15 - 13.
The Grand Final in the afternoon saw good bowling by both teams, but it was the more experienced Karens who took the win. Congratulations.
