Invitation Fours

A very successful carnival, again generously sponsored by Trevors Carpets, was held on Saturday 21st May under sunny and warm skies. Unfortunately this event, which had to be rescheduled from last year due to COVID lockdowns, had to do without the main man from Trevors Carpets, Ray Green, because he had personally contracted COVID just prior to the event!

Thirty-six men’s teams from as far away as Bunbury competed in two matches of 13 ends of fours, plus two matches of 11-end pairs. Apart from a couple of delays with the lunch and the final scoring, the event went off without a hitch.

Thanks to the organisers – Dan Greig, Ian Wittber and Trevor Orton, and to John Godfrey who organised the raffle. Thanks also to Wendy Saul and her band of helpers who provided the morning tea and served the lunch provided by Chicken Treat. Thanks too to Anne Orton who helped with recording the scores. The bar manager, Ian Lucas, also expressed his appreciation and very good bar sales were recorded.

The winners were:-

First: Composite team of John Slavich, Justin Opie, Ross Bresland and Kyle McIlroy with four wins and 56 shots up.

Second: Glen Pauling’s South Perth combination (Callum Alberti, Blake Heldt and Scott Walker)

Third: Composite team of Ryan Moyle, Brandon Heta, Simon Deering and David Cosgrove

Fourth: Morley team of Vic Orchard, Phil Fettes, Phil Leyland and W Hinchcliffe

Round 1: Rhett Butler, Terry Ball, Steve Mulhall and John Godfrey (Composite)

Round 2: Norm Shannon, Steve Dobie, Peter Munday and K Swift (Leeming)

Round 3: Tristan Massang, Paul Kelly, Ben Judge and John Motts (Mosman Park)

Round 4: Vic Barbato, Peter Vakovic, Errol McGrath, Errol Rabey (Como)

Unfortunately, our sponsor Ray Green of Trevors Carpets was unable to play at the last minute due to Covid, but his team of fellow Sorrento members managed to come in fifth on the day – Bruce Eagles, Peter Flack, Richard Bone and Greg Taylor (pictured above).
