Four intrepid Beecroft Bowlers are off to the Masters Games in Tasmania. We’ll keep you posted on how they go but for now, you can see that a couple of them have been spotted training, in preparation for the start of the Men’s Pairs tomorrow. Wish them luck!…
A few days later…
We all had some wins but not enough to get though to the finals. You know how it goes – Peter and John beat the team that ended up winning the Gold. Noelene and Craig also had some near misses but…for the four of us, the closest we got to gold was hanging out at the pub and touching the medals of the winners of golf, dragon boat racing, bocce, baseball…
That’s bowls for you!
23 October. Well deserved – Peter Seale was made a life member and Lesley Hines was awarded the Beecroft Medal.
Shirts and Skirts
2 October. It was always going to be a titanic match and that’s exactly how it turned out! 8 teams of women and 8 teams of men pitted in tough competition over three rounds of rapid 7 end games.
Two men had to become “honorary” women to make up one last team to get the numbers right. How good do they look? Come back on Tuesday boys!
After the first round the skirts pulled out to a tidy lead of 6 games to 2.
The men’s manager, Craig Davis, rallied his troops at the break and the men came out firing to reverse the results in the second round: exactly the same result, 6 games to 2 for the men.
So everyone geared up for a tight third round to decide the champions…….
How close was it! Overall 12 games each at the end, it came down to margin and the skirts prevailed with 15 shots.
Well done to the skirts team. To the shirts, better luck next time, there is always next year, as they say! The women’s manager, Jane Byrnes, along with Viv, were the best performed team on the day, with three wins.
