Dash for Cash

The coldest morning in five years did not deter the 26 teams of men who turned out for the second Dash for Cash for 2021, sponsored again by Safeway Security Screens, on Saturday 26th June.

Unfortunately, the first of this year’s event in May had to be cancelled due to poor weather. The men’s Dash for Cash has been held up to four times each year for 10 years and has become well-established as a very popular event on the off-season bowling calendar. Four rounds of 11 ends are played with a soup-and-a-roll lunch provided by our team of volunteers very welcome, especially so on Saturday to enable some thawing of cold bowlers.

Prize money is well distributed, with the winners as listed below:-

1st Overall M Sweeney, J Post, S Richards and A Zis 4 wins + 33 shots
2nd K McIlroy, R Moyle, M Hansen and R Castledine 4 wins + 1 shots
3rd P Walker, M Sharrett, J Konig and F Tyson 3 1/2 wins + 16 shots
4th B Fullagar, J Carlsen, I Watson and M Dragicevich 3 wins + 29 shots

Morning: P Knight, R Rogers, B Owen and J Godfrey 2 wins + 19 shots
Afternoon: B Stewart, P Snow, D Nicholls and M Burton 2 wins + 26 shots
Round 1: J Sturk, R Hill, K Cooper and A Gallagher + 9 shots
Round 2: D McKenzie, D Bird, G Shennen and D Hartzer + 13 shots
Round 3: P Flack, B Saul, S VanMosseveld and P Morgan + 14 shots
Round 4: J Brown, R Bone, B Kiely and M Carrigy + 12 shots

Thanks to the men’s match committee for their organisation, especially Dan Greig and Paul Doherty, and to Trevor and Anne Orton for their help with scoring. Thanks also to the ladies who catered wonderfully for morning tea and lunch.

But of course our particular gratitude to Barry Bradshaw’s Safeway Security Screens for their on-going sponsorship of Dash for Cash events.
