Last week Culburra hosted the first two rounds of the District Minor Triples. There were some great games, with the two teams from our club meeting each other in the quarter final. Well done to Ruby Salmon, Eileen Hunter and Annette Barry for a great performance, and congratulations to Carol Turton, Lorraine Foster and Robyn Herbert on making it to the Semi Final, and then going on to win the final – great result for the team and our Club.
The first semi-final of our Consistency was also played last week. Although the weather was cool and with rain interruptions , the game between Jenny Castellan and Ruby Salmon was a good one, with Jenny taking the win over Ruby and securing her place in the final. The second semi-final is scheduled for this week – good luck to both June Jones and Carol Turton.
With District events and rained out days, our Social ladies didn’t get much of a run last week – we look forward to seeing everyone out in force this week.
Our annual Warren Halloran Mixed Triples is being held this week and we are looking forward to a good turn out and great day of bowls.
