The Warwick Bowls Club held their September Monthly Triples competition on Tuesday 7 September.
Fourteen teams filled the greens in conditions conducive to a great afternoon lawn bowls.
The conditions of play were one point for an end plus five for a win.
At the completion of the two rounds there was not a lot between overall winners Peter Collis, Danny Hughes and Matt Shepherd and runner’s up Darryl Phillips, John Ruhle and Phil Wagner.
In the opening round Collis, Shepherd and Phillips scored a 14-5 win over Edwin Welsh, Craig Thurgate and Trevor Wright and backed that up in round two defeating Pamela Kerr, Doug Warr and Brian Black 12-7.
The runners up Darryl Phillips, John Ruhle and Phil Wagner had a 12-7 win over Kay Bloomfield, Lynn Collie and Doug Christensen in their opening game and followed up with a 13-6 win over Margaret Harvey, Barry Murphy and Gaye Wilmot.
In other games in Round One Bill Lee, Barry Ziebell and Kim Hankinson defeated Joe Torrisi, Steve Ford and D. Smith 14-5.
Ray Schnitzerling, Ken Hayes and Jim Rickard had a 13-6 win in their game against A. Davidson, W. Foster and Steve Tyter.
13-6 a popular margin.
It was the score in the game between Nick, Jean and Rhonda (Tannymorel) who defeated Pat Seipelt, Denis Sterling and Max Holder and another game between Margaret Harvey, Barry Murphy and Gaye Wilmot who played Roger Cavanagh, Geoff Davis and John Johnson.
Pamela Kerr, Doug Warr and Brian Black had a 14-5 win over Terry Banditt, John Cockrane and K. Weier.

Joe Torrisi, Steve Ford and D. Smith had a 16-3 win against A. Davidson, W. Foster and Steve Tyter.
