After a very wet start to the week, it was with some surprise the rain broke away on Wednesday allowing for a few round 1 matches of the Minor Pairs to be contested. Despite the heavy track some quality bowling was on display, with results to date;

Game 1 – I Abberley & S Hollington defeated J Newbold & T McCormack

Game 2 – H Griffiths & P Smith defeated R Solway & D Solomon

Game 3 – M Rosina & J Black defeated A Lattanzio & J Green

Following all games, trophy winners were announced as:

1st H Griffiths, & P Smith

2nd M Rosina & J Black

No Jackpot this week. Jackpot returns next week.

Thursday and Friday this week will see the Annual Worrigee Triples fiercely contested with many local district teams in action on the greens. Best of luck to all competitors in their efforts to claim the prestigious title of tournament champions, I look forward to reporting the winners next week. Readers with spare time and a passion for competitive bowls are invited to call in and provide participants with plenty of encouragement, support and cheer from the gallery. Entrants are reminded arrival and welcome at 9:00am with bowling action to commence at 9:30am.
