Thursday June 18
Though the men had to abandon play due to bad weather, the day before we were greeted with sunny skies and a good Green, with two club championship games and four rinks of social bowlers indicating a pretty good turn up. Though it is good to compete away from home it is good to get back and meet up with everybody again too. The results of all games as follows:
Club championship Major singles final: In a tight see-sawing game that could have gone either way Jen Axon and Anna Bunn fought it out to the last couple of ends where Jen managed to get on top by three shots. Great game ladies, deserved champions both. The final score was J Axon d A Bunn 25-22 (Marker N Graham).
