Another great week of bowls was hosted at the Parkes Bowling & Sports Club. On Monday the 2nd of October we had two Major Singles. In the first of the Major Singles games Baldy Frame was the hot favourite and he took on Wilbur Harris. Wilbur won 5 of the first 7 ends to take the lead 8 to 2 and by the 13 end still had the lead 12 to 8. Baldy started to get his shots going to take the lead, winning the next 5 ends to go to the lead 16 to 13. In the next two ends Baldy put down consistent bowls to gain a 4 in each to take the game away from Wilbur. Wilbur won the next end but Baldy won the next end to take the game 25 to 14. Marker for this game was Bernie Mitchell thanks Bernie.
The second Major Singles game was between Nathan Reynolds and Peter McPhee. Nathan got off to a great start and by the 11th end was leading 13 to 5. Peter started to hit form with some great bowling to level the game in the 19th end 19 all. The game remained tight and was then 22 all.
Nathan in the next end managed to gain a 3 to win the game 25 to 22. Great bowls by both players made this game an enjoyable one to watch. Marker was Eddie McPhee thanks Eddie. Please remember that it is COMPULSORY to wear shin pads covered in long socks to take the field also only wear runners or futsal boots.
