Tuesday, May 29
A typical wet season day with overnight rain and high clouds providing great conditions for bowls. 12 bowlers so ideal for a round robin pairs competition. Ron did a great job organising the pairings. The 6 teams played each other in 5 matches of 5 ends. Roon and Leon won the chocolates from Andy and Jpn. The crackers went to Paul and Richard in 6th place. With only 5 ends there was quite a lot of pressure as each bowl had to count. A fun day enjoyed by all.
Sunday, May 31
