Dash for Cash

A bright, sunny but cool winter’s day greeted the 22 teams of men that took to the greens on Saturday 25th June for the second Dash for Cash for the year. Dash for Cash has been running for 11 years now, and continues to be sponsored by SAFEWAY SECURITY SCREENS (thanks Barry and Paul Bradshaw). The event now attracts significant numbers of “foreign” bowlers from outside Sorrento, and this was the case again on Saturday with 30+ visitors joining our Sorrento players.

After the two morning rounds of 10 ends each, six teams had won both games. The players then adjourned for the traditional soup-and-a-roll lunch, again generously provided by our volunteer ladies. On behalf of our bowlers, enormous thanks to you, ladies, especially Wendy Saul who coordinates the day.

Resuming for the afternoon rounds, only one team (pictured above with sponsor Paul Bradshaw) managed to win all four games, with eight teams achieving three wins. With help from Anne and Trevor Orton, over $2000 in prize money was determined and distributed.

A full list of all winners is shown below.
Overall 1st 4 wins plus 22 shots Matt Sharrett, Gary Bayne, Barney Fleiser and Peter Flack (pictured above)
Overall 2nd 3 wins plus 19 shots Bob Jeffs, Glenn McCarthy, Spider Webb and Trevor Orton
