CHAMPIONSHIP SINGLES. 21st January 2019
This event was completed over the weekend. In a Women's preliminary final Gloria Duffin started with two lives and Meredith Pottage with one, Meredith ending up a reasonably comfortable winner. In the actual final Meredith again emerged the winner to take out the title. In the mens event Steve Beel jumped out to a good start over John Gray, leading 17-8 after 20 ends. John found his touch and won the next four ends to lead 18-17 and a real battle to 21 looked in prospect. However in somewhat of an anti-climax, Steve picked up a four on the 25th end to win the event. Earlier there was a fascinating game between Steve and Nathan Arlidge with Steve the winner 21-19 over 33 ends.CHAMPIONSHIP TRIPLES 17th December 2018
The Championship Triples were completed over the weekend with some new combinations taking out the titles. The women's event was won by Linda Ewing, Nita Cowper & Meredith Pottage in a tight low-scoring game (9-6) over Diane Fogarty, Sylvia Motion and Diane Hazelton. The mens event saw Doug Russell, Neil Wilson and Kevin Maxfield emerge comfortable winners over Don Shand, John Simons (L) & John Simons (R). The Maxfield team was steady throughout but the Simons team was unable to re-produce their earlier good form. The win gave Neil Wilson his second Club Title for the year, having earlier won the pairs with Steve Beel.
