Four more games in the men’s Major Singles were played in hot windy conditions on Saturday, February 17. Greg McMillan and Pauli Kennedy had a close game, with Pauli leading Greg until the 20th end. Greg moved up a gear and won the match, 31 – 22 on the 32nd end. Dennis Beazley and Pat Ford had a close game with the score equal on three ends. Dennis scored 12 shots to Pat’s 3 over the last seven ends, Dennis defeating Pat 31 – 22 on the 29th end. It was a battle of the giants when Anthony Fisher and Grant Ridges played their game. Both started well, with Anthony taking the lead and keeping it defeating Grant, 31 – 19. The last game saw Col Neighbour and Paul Mitchell play. Col used his game plan, “take the lead early and keep it” strategy defeating Paul 32 – 11 on the twentieth end. Congratulations to all the players for great bowling. The semi and final should be fantastic games to watch. Sunday, February 18, saw the presentation of the new Club bowls shirts by Steve Foley on behalf of major sponsor Shoalhaven Gutter Cleaning. The two other sponsors, G&T McMillan and Bay Village Meats were also present to present the new shirts. It is great to see local businesses get behind sporting clubs in the area.
The ladies played a close game of fours on Tuesday, February 13, also in hot conditions with some respite from the north easterly breeze. Jan Wright (swinger), Dianne Dawes, Beverley Young and Tracey Semovente were defeated by Jan Wright (swinger), Audrey Mansfield, Lyn Byrne and Terry McMillan, 13 – 11. After bowls, the girls attended a farewell lunch for Joan Jagger, a long time member of the Women’s Bowls club. Apart from serving as the Bowls Organiser for many years, Joan won most of the club Championships and was a mentor and a great friend to many. She has moved to Queensland with her family and will be sorely missed.

Rink 5 witnessed the game of the week. David Solomon and Gary Tearle started off brilliantly with a 2 shot win on the first end. Graham Eyre and Alessandro Lattanzio found their width with the wind and took the next 6 ends to be up by 15 to 2. Dave was subbed out sick by Bert Madge and a sensational seven by Bert and Gary had them back in the game. Digging deeply, they mastered the green with a couple of fantastic threes to be only 5 shots behind on the 16th end. A fabulous four closed the gap to just one shot. Graham and Alessandro responded in the best way possible with a one shot end only to see Bert and Gary draw level with a superb two. On the penultimate end, Graham and Alessandro judged the wind perfectly to win by a shot. Who would keep their concentration and tie or win the game on the last end? Wonderful bowling by Graham Eyre and Alessandro Lattanzio saw them win the end by a shot and the game 25 to 23 shots. What a game!
