Eighteen keen bowlers started the day in foggy conditions on Tuesday, with music of The Carpenters softly playing. With COVID rules in place, we weren’t ‘Close To You’ at any time!
Two games of pairs and one of triples took care of the social bowlers with a first day out of hibernation for some.
The match of the day (no, of the year) saw Liz Byrne and Rhona Went contest the Club Championship Singles Final. Wow! These two superstars played their hearts out. Too many magic moments to mention, but with the score 24-all, Rhona holding shot, and Liz with her last bowl to deliver to win, ‘A Kind Of Hush’ settled over the crowd. And win it, Liz did! Huge accolades to both, congratulations and thank you for the entertainment. Liz was last seen ‘Dancing In The Street’ heading home!
In social matches, Chris Cox and Maja Iffland were looking for ‘A Place To Hideaway’ after their loss to Carol Reed and Rosemary Mitchell. Maureen Miller and Kim Evans were ‘On Top Of The World’ defeating Chris Curteis and Lea Orr who just wanted ‘This Masquerade’ to end.
‘Solitaire’ was not the way to win the triples. Heather Harvey, Di Howell and Betsy Johnstone got their team rhythm going and enjoyed a win over Kay Craft, Lorraine Baker and Maureen Baillie. Club Championship Pairs nominations will close 21st July.
Even more excitement! – our club is the winner of a $2,500 grant from Essential Energy Community Choices Program. Thank you, Essential Energy, and to all our members who voted!
