Dash for Cash


The latest and final Dash for Cash for 2022, again generously sponsored by SAFEWAY SECURITY SCREENS was held under showery skies, and on s-l-o-w greens on Saturday 27th August. A great field of 32 teams assembled, which despite a couple of brief rainy interludes, and a small hitch with the scoring, went off well. In all, over $2,500 in prize money was awarded on the day.

The usual format of four matches of 10 ends was played, with players changing greens at lunch time. By lunch, nine teams had won both matches, and with a shower of rain affecting the afternoon matches, only one team managed to win all four matches, and that was Ray Loran, Brian Ledingham, Gary Bobridge and Dave Dunstan. Dave’s team was 31 shots up. Congratulations guys.

A total of 74 visitors were among the 128 bowlers who took part, and contrary to last month’s event, most of the winners this month came from Sorrento. A special thanks goes to Ray Stapledon who filled in at the last minute.

And our enormous thanks again to Wendy Saul and her band of kitchen helpers who prepared morning tea, and soup for lunch which was very welcome for the chilly bowlers in the middle of the day.
