GDSC men’s bowls

Posted on by in Sports

Welcome to the first report for the GDSC Men’s Bowling Club for 2019, which will start with the first Club Championship being completed on Saturday and Sunday… namely the Club fours.

Saturday afternoon saw the first round completed and in what was a big coincidence, both finalists finished up 17 all against their opponents, winning on an extra end.

Sunday morning saw the semi finals played which lead to reigning champions M Shorten, M Walsh, K Landrigan and B Martin facing off against G Harrison, R Power, G Maxted and A Knox. The start of the game went tit for tat until A Knox’s team started to create a gap on the scoreboard, eventually going on to win 25 – 17. Congratulations to the Winners and commiserations to the runner’s up.

Friday had 32 players at the GDSC in the morning enjoying some enjoyable social bowls. Winners for the day were R Nelson ad D Cutts, whilst runners up went to M Cook and C Clark and the day’s Lucky Losers prize was taken home by A Graham and the ever-lucky D Brown. There were three good bowlers on the day, but the Tony’s Handyman and Home Maintenance resting toucher prize was won by R Grant with a respectable time of 9:56.

Wednesday had 38 players on the Greens. The year’s first winners were I Harrison and G Harrison, whilst runners up went to I Knox and A Knox. The first Lucky Losers for 2019 were D Clarke and P Cubbin. The first Tony’s Handyman and Home Maintenance resting toucher was won by R Cavanagh with an extremely early time of 9:05.

This year the GDSC Men’s Club is going to host an Australia Day one bowl tournament followed by a mixed triples social day. This event is open to both men and women and will be a great, fun and fast paced event. Entries are being taken now so drop into the club or see any of the bowlers to enter, or to get more information. Looking forward to what 2019 holds.
