Another Successful Finals Weekend
This last weekend we were able to enjoy one of the highlights of our club calendar, Finals Weekend. This end of season event is always entertaining to watch and even more exciting to participate in as a competitor. The weather this year was not entirely kind to us on the first day with frequent, and sometimes prolonged heavy showers. However, our bowlers are made of stern stuff and played in some difficult conditions to produce a very high standard of bowls. The highlight of the Saturday competitions must go to the final of the Mens Four-wood Singles which was decided on the last end and won by Nigel Stronach, who beat Tony Smith by one point.
The Sunday event was in complete contrast to Saturday as the sun shone all day without interruption. This also helped the players to produce some very impressive bowls on a good dry surface, with some very competitive matches that kept the spectators enthralled throughout. This was another day of quality entertainment and close results.
