Rain scuttles bowls

As with many other organisations the wet weather forced the cancellation of bowls at the Stanthorpe Bowls Club last week.

The midweek game during the previous week was also cancelled as workers installed new

seating around the green. The old timber seating has been replaced and the new seats have back rests an improvement that gets a nod from the senior members of the club and everyone else.

The club did hold a competition on Anzac Day. Bruno Stefanon and Margaret Harvey took the prize in the pairs game they played against Helen Jones and Dot Rankin. The score 26-12. In the triples Ray Rankin Polly Lay and Tom Hodgson proved too strong for John Graham Pam Shore and Gary Trevana scoring a comprehensive 31-15 win.

With many players having other commitments over the Anzac Day long weekend attendance was limited. On Saturday (23/4) Robyn Smith and Brian Brown played Dot Rankin and Peter Smith. The game was a closely fought affair and resulted in Robyn and Brian snatching a 17-14 win. Ray Rankin, Bruno Stefanon and Tom Hodgson outscored Rocky Thompson Ernie Jones and Mark Wicks 19-11 in a triples match.

Several club members have been experiencing ill health recently and it is hoped they will be back on the green in the near future.

The club’s featured sponsor last week was Favero Motors, and Stephen and Megan are thanked for their continuing support of the club.
