YMGCR BOWLS CLUB
On Wednesday we had 33 players playing 3 bowls pairs and we had 5 two game winners. Coming out on top was the Green Machine in “GG” Green and the much improved Marie Morffew (it’s good to see Marie getting the results because she puts a lot of practice in and she seems to be also handling her new bowls well). They had +24 shots and this week’s runners up with +18 were Rhonda Irvine and a visitor R Minato. I would like to congratulate Danny and his match committee for having the capabilities to always accommodate any situation that crops up (getting a late entry a game).
During the week we had several of our teammates representing the O&M in the Bowls Victoria Championships and I’m glad to inform you that our team in the Ladies 4’s won with Claire Sanders, Laureen Smith, Anne Miles and magnificently skipped by just a player in current World Champion of Champions ….Kylie Whitehead from Wodonga. To get to the final they had to beat the favorites from Sandbelt who had Tiffany Brodie, Courtney Gabb (both have played for Victoria), Kelly McKerrhen (Canadian International) and another Vic player in Lisa Phillips, but our girls came out all guns blazing and they had a resounding win getting up 19/7. In the final they had to play the Strzelecki team and after having a shocking start were trailing 1/9, but like the champs they are they fought back to level the scores at 9/9 all. With all the momentum they then consolidated and began to draw away and put the game away on the 16th end by picking up a 5 and they won 17/15.
In other results, the Men’s 4’s with Sanders and the Lefevre boys had a good win in the first round but were put out in the second. In the Mixed Pairs, Anne Miles and Wangaratta’s Ian Brimblecombe got through to the semi finals. In the Ladies Pairs Claire Sanders and Anne Miles won their first game and will play their next game on Monday, so I hope I can bring some good news next week.
Don’t forget you have until Thursday 13th May to put in a nomination form for positions on the various committees.
