Tuesday we had a full turn out on A-Green for the Rosehill SuperSpar sponsored competition. Michael Long and his team of Dave Tyrrell, Roger Purdon and Robert Sandilands were in fine form to defeat Jackie Kriel’s team by 10 points and 17 shot profit. Runner-up on the day was Dick Schuurman’s team of 4’s who beat Pieter Stegmann’s team by another full house and 13 shot profit.

Thursday was a proper winters’ day and we only had a turnout of 10 players but we went ahead with the Ocean Basket Competition. Today’s winner was Ronnie Smith and Bryan Burger who defeated Lawrie May’s pair by two points and a shot profit of 15 to be presented with the winner’s vouchers. The runner-up was Pieter Stegmann’s trip who defeated Jacques Krige’s trip 22/21, it was a sneak home and they also received vouchers. All enjoy your meal from the ocean.

Friday 16th, Youth Day the Eastern Areas President’s Day Bowls Competition took place at Kowie Bowls Club with a total of 12 teams participating from the five clubs. Albany, Kenton and Kowie entered three teams each with Port Alfred two teams and Grahamstown one team. We play three games of 14 ends each in a pre-drawn competition. The top performers were in 1st place Deon Fourie’s team (Albany) with 20 points and a shot profit of 34, in 2nd place Billy Krige’s team (Albany) 18 points +8 and in 3rd place another Albany team Kallie Calitz 16 points +14. Sally Wormald and her team provided a wonderful curried lunch with all who participated really enjoying the day of bowls.

Saturday was not a day for bowls with the wind and winter weather, and we had a small turnout for the day to play the Snowball competition. The number drawn for the four ends was “9” and of course no team came near to that score so it will roll over to the next competition.

Duties for week June 26 – July 2:

Greens: Roll – Ron Smith, Mark: Don Kelly and Keith Kolesky, Tabs: Cash – Linda Reynolds and Bar: John Hubbard and Don Kelly.
