Another busy week at the bowling club

Gloucester Bowling Club

Club Championship Mixed Fours Semi Finals: When the cream rose to the top…Club Championship Fours...What a spectacle for those lucky enough to witness, both semi-finals going down to the wire in close scoring games.

Despite leading until the 20th end Lorraine Ratcliff, Katharine Stuckings, Neville Atkins and Bruce Wilson were narrowly beaten by Bev Germon, Jill Everett, Kevin Burley and Kevin Everett (16-17)

Then in the second semi the same thing happened in the final end after leading for most of the game Di Pritchard, Del Bucton, Tony Tersteeg and Luis Urby went down to Judy Sheely, Mike Sheely, Joan Ridgeway and John Andrews also (16-17) in another nail biter. Well done to you all not only on the quality of bowls, but the spirit in which it was played. The final is scheduled to be played this Saturday at 9.30am as Helicopter Rescue is Sunday.

Wespac Helicopter Rescue Service Fundraiser at 9.30am Sunday morning…join in the fun and support this worthy cause which has provided us with a number of patient retrievals recently.

Men’s Bowls: Thursday: winners were Terry Carson, Peter Samson and Andrew Henderson convincing winners (18+21) Runners Up were Vic Hebblewhite and Luis Urby (18+15) Mixed Bowls: Saturday: Not played due to so many players involved in the Club Championship Fours and high temperature.

Trevor Knight (the original Jesus from Jesus Christ Superstar at the Capital Theatre) will be appearing at the Club as a fundraiser for the farmers on the 24th of November at a cost of $25 per ticket…Show your support and book a table.

Thelma Bolton pairs

Women’s Bowls: On a very hot day, the final match of the semi-finals of the Thelma Bolton Pairs was played between Joan Ridgeway and Colleen Atkins and Jill Everett and Lorraine Ratcliffe. This resulted in a win – 16-10 – to Jill’s team. The final will be played on November 7 between Val Pritchard and Ruth Redman and Jill Everett and Lorraine Ratcliffe – good luck to both teams and let’s hope it’s not such a hot day! Three games of social bowls were also played – everyone was feeling the heat, and it is still only spring! On morning tea roster for 14 November are Michelle Biggs and Di Pritchard.
