Round 2 of the Minor Championship Singles filled half the rinks on Tuesday at the Parkes Bowling and Sports Club. Winners through to the next round, to be played on or before 16th November, are Maureen Miller (defeated Fran Dixon), Lynn Ryan (df Carol Reed), Heather Harvey (df Kay Craft) and Lorraine Baker (df Julie Green). Some excellent bowls played, and all in the spirit of the game. Well done to all eight ladies. Thanks to the markers and Umpire Liz.
In social games, Hilda McPherson/Maria Willcockson/Gwenda Carty proved too strong for Valmai Westcott/Kate Keogh/Lea Orr.
Anne Wright/Kim Evans, sharing the lead spot, with Betsy John-stone and Brenda Davies were slow out of the gates, giving Eileen Bradley/Chris Cox/Marja Iffland too great a lead to peg back, but try they did! Similarly, Chris Curteis/Vi West/Rhona Went opened up a double figure lead against Beth Thomas/Jan McPhee/Helen Heraghty, stayed ahead, but won by just three points at the bell.
Groundsman Greg had a busy morning – we’re always grateful to Ground Control. Maureen was just as busy behind the bar. Thanks, dear lady!
