Like so many other organisations, the focus of the members of the Stanthorpe Bowls club over the past week has been on the weather rather than bowls. Midweek Social bowls were cancelled last week however thanks in no small part to the work of a small army of volunteers the green was ready for Saturday.
Unfortunately, Mother nature is not a one trick pony and had she another card to play with a wind that almost required a cricketer’s run up when bowling. In spite of all a few hurdles members played three bowl triples.
Helen Jones, Greg Hammond and Brian Brown out played Ray Rankin Dot Rankin and Mark Wicks to win their game 21-11.
Louisa Girgenti, Robyn Smith and David Rose scored a 19-9 win over L Girgenti, Robyn Rose and Tom Hodgson 19-9.
The long-awaited last semi-final of the Club selected Triples Title was also decided. Rocky Thompson, Ernie Jones and Peter Smith were troubled by the conditions and honours went to Cathy Stefanon, Gary Trevena and Frank Gallo who scored a comprehensive 27-6 win. The final of the championships will be played on a date yet to be decided in the near future.
The club’s featured sponsor for this week is Lifestyle Footwear. The club thanks Julianne and Alfina for their continuing support of the club.
