Final Dash for Cash

The fourth and final Dash for Cash for 2021, again sponsored by Safeway Security Screens, was held under grey but fine skies on Saturday 28th August. 22 teams of men had registered for this event, but unfortunately only 21 teams turned up, which meant a frantic search for players to make up a balancing team. This search was ultimately successful and a team was cobbled together of injured and part-time bowlers, including one lady, taking to the greens slightly later than planned.

Four matches of 11 ends were played, with two matches in the morning and two in the afternoon separated by the customary, but nevertheless welcome, soup-and-a-roll lunch. Thanks to the ladies who provided the lunch and also the morning tea prior to play. In total about eight ladies volunteered to help during the day and their contribution was very much appreciated.

After the morning rounds only four teams had won both matches, and by the end of the third match only two teams remained undefeated, with one of these falling at the final hurdle. While there were 39 visiting bowlers of the 88 competing, Sorrento players dominated the results.

The full results of all winners is shown below:-

1st 4 wins + 39 shots Jim Welch, Peter Crow, Alan Anderson and Ian Linford
