From the ditch

2015-09-09 06:00

PAIRS championships are well on their way. The first-round match between Jack Drew and Clive Edkins versus Wendy Edwards and Jordan Bonorchis went the way of the former. Jack and Clive proved too strong in the end and will meet Herbert and Mandy Balzer­ in the semis.

Roy Thomson and Bryan Paul played Sannie­ and Gerhard Balzer in the other semi-final. Roy and Bryan came out firing and were 17-12 at tea time, but then the wheels fell off and the Balzers roared through to the finals.

Plans are going ahead for Heritage Day, when Mascor are sponsoring a great fun day. Besides the rounds of hilarious bowls, there will be tea and lunch on the coals as it is national Braai Day, but what is going to be braaied is a surprise. If you can’t wait, phone Gerhard Balzer on 082 379 9075 or Bryan Paul on 033 413 2157.
