AWESOME. It was such a fantastic final to the floodlight bowls last Wednesday night. All the teams played out their 10 ends, and then watched the two top teams battle it out.

And what a humdinger of a finish it was – the Bracken boys versus the SBR girls. Mark Thomas, Andrew Merson and Rens van der Watt had a close encounter with Wendy Edkins, Ruth Drew, and Ingrid Surendorff, when they went 4-4 on the 8th end, 5-5 on the 10th end and 6-6 on the 12th end, which forced a sudden death on the 13th.

The Bracken Bowldozers won to a thunderous standing ovation and was followed by the prize giving and tasty dinner thanks to Karen Cordy and her team.

For those who enjoyed the fun day bowls, and also for those who missed it, the next one is the Pannar fun day on Sunday 29 May - R60 for two games of bowls, tasty food and prizes.

On Youth Day, 16 June is the Plennegy fun day.

Contact Wessel Pretorius on 072 266 0835 or Bryan Paul on 033 413 2157. Locally the men’s single championships have started with Chris Fischer winning over Gerhard Balzer 21-18, and Wolfie Lubowitski beating Bryan Paul 21-17 - both these matches were of a high standard with accuracy average of 99.66%. Still to play Wessel Pretorius-Herbert Balzer, and Jordan Bonorchis-Kobus Uys.

If anyone has a set of Lignus size 3 brown bowls please contact Bryan Paul.
