We scored another full week of bowls. On Wednesday, we had the honour of watching the Final of the Club Major/Minor Pairs Championship. We also had 20 Mixed players competing in five games of Pairs. Thursday was a wonderful day that witnessed the beginning of the Ladies Club Consistency Championship. On Saturday most players were contesting or marking the Club Minor Singles Championship with five Round 1 matches played in the morning and five Round 2 matches played in the afternoon. Two games of Social Mixed Pairs were completed. Paul Goddard was away to Berry representing our Club in the Singles Champion of Club Champions contest.
Wednesday 14th the greens were great.
Rink 2 witnessed the Final of the Club Major/Minor Pairs Championship with Allan Furniss and John Edwards starting off well. Paul Goddard and Jim Jamieson slowly pegged them back and took the lead with a scintillating six. They then played safety bowls ensuring they didn’t loose an end by more than 1 shot. This skilful tactic saw them emerge as the new Major/Minor Champions for 2020. All hail Paul Goddard and Jim Jamieson, the Worrigee Sports Bowls Major/Minor Champions.
Rink 5 saw Mick Edwards and Harry Pearce slaughter their opposition by 22 to not enough shots.
Rink 6 likewise, Ian Abberley and Peter Smith were on song as the put their opposition to the sword by 26 shots to 11.
Rink 9 - There was blood on the green as John Newbold and Alan Liebert crushed their opponents by 32 to not enough shots.
On a day of lop-sided games, Rink 10 did not disappoint as David Solomon and Don Salway combined exceptionally well to demolish their opposition by 27 shots to 12.
Rink 11 must have been so bad that the cards were not handed in.
Thursday 15th October the green was at a medium pace.
A great morning of Consistency bowling was witnessed as the Ladies battled out their Championship.
Saturday 17th October the greens were running fast and true. This was perfect for bowls.

Rink 6 - Scrutinised the match of the week where Graham Eyre played magnificent bowls to be up by 22 to 6 shots over John Edwards on the 16th end. John then realised he was in a game of bowls and started to concentrate. Slowly, over the next 14 ends he fought back like a tiger and on the 29th end a fantastic three saw him in the lead by a shot. 29 to 28. Could Graham stem the flow? Yes, a wonderful one shot saw him level the match at 29-29. It was anyone’s match now! Let’s start again. A massive 3 under extreme pressure saw John Edwards move into the quarter-finals, 31/29. What a match. Well done boys. Thanks to Marker, Karen Waters.
