Over the past two weeks, we have had some awesome weather, leading to some fantastic bowling. Even though Public Holidays affected attendance due to members and players taking much-deserved vacations, those of us who remained behind made the most of it.
The J Leslie Smith & Co 2 4 2 competition played on the 24th of April was handsomely won by Brain Ellison and Chantal D Hotman who walked away with the first prize meat pack. The second prize was won by Ed Sharpe and Ann Marnoch. Third prize was won by John Hodgkinson and Kitty Conradie. Lisa Nagel of JLS was present to hand out all the prizes sponsored by JLS and also brought some lovely treats.
Our Woodstone Craft Café competition which was played on Friday 27 April was a very close contest. The eventual winners were the team from Hilton Bowling Club consisting of Barry Best, Barend van der Merwe and Willie Horne. Second prize went to Clark Logan, Margie Holl and Mark Schraader and third prize to Lynn Durant, Graeme Cameron and Tiny Lourens. All three main prizes were generously sponsored by Mark Schraader of Woodstone Craft Café. The Toucher prizes sponsored by The Treatery were won by Allan Wells, Willie Horne and Alistair Stott. This competition has quickly turned into a much sought after comp and we are thrilled to have a sponsor who not only ensures quality prizes but also ensured that we had some lovely treats to eat during the tea break.
The final week of the 2017/2018 league took place this past weekend. To this end, we would like to congratulate all our league teams for a commendable effort during the league this past year. Even though final results are not out yet, it definitely is a set of results that we can build on for next year. During the final weekend, the Men’s 3rd team had a brilliant home victory over neighbours Hilton Bowling club by 12 – 1. Our Men’s 1st team had to travel to Mooi River where the lead ebbed and flowed the entire afternoon. Umgeni Waterfall was eventually victorious by 8 – 5. Any away victory is worth celebrating.
