Having knocked out most of the opponents, the last few contenders were fighting for a spot in the ladies major singles final.
Novice Tracey Thomas came up against the far more experienced Cate Hunt and finished with a 25-19 victory.
The game was close throughout and the final score was only decided over the last four ends. It was a very impressive result from a new bowler and this win secured a place in the final.
Linda Scott and Betty Barber also fought hard against each other, with Linda leading all the way. Linda claimed victory, with a 26-10 final score. Linda has been bowling exceptionally well, with a new set of blue bowls and headed into the final against Tracey.
The cool, wet and breezy weather on Sunday did not deter Tracey Thomas and Linda Scott from their final battle in the major singles. Tracey’s dream run came to an end as she struggled to find the correct weight on the heavy green. Linda adapted to the conditions well and headed to victory, with a 25-4 final score. Congratulations to Linda on a great game and well done Tracey for making it through to the final in the competition.
Four social games of pairs were also played during the week. Enid Brooker and Thelma Butt defeated Marion Britton and Elsie Shaw 18-9. Wilma Bingley and Lois Macgregor proved too strong for Margaret Callaughan and Bernice Davis 19-13. Wendy Steel and Janice Harmer defeated Rosie Toms and Robin Pollack 21-9. Helen Barton and Margaret Holston just managed to sneak ahead 19-18 against Leanne Goode and Sue Bush.
The nominated triples teams have been drawn and bowlers need to find a partner for the friendship bowls day on June 11, either mixed or ladies pairs. Flyers have also gone out for our annual spring carnival so please get your teams organised and entries in.
