Day 1 commenced on Sunday 30/11 with 8 teams competing. Only one game was played because of the hot conditions with a maximum of 39oC predicted – resulting in 4 teams going through.
Day 2 Played on Sunday 3/12 Semi Finals between Teams Orton (Nerida Porteous, Ross Porteous, Lee Leach and Skip Trevor Orton) V Team Cunningham (Liz Marshall, Shirley Palmer, Roger Palmer and Skip Ross Cunningham). Team Cunningham got off to a flying start winning 8 of the first 11 ends and played consistently well with a final score of 28/9.
Team Konig ( Nikki Athiendides, Adrian Rose, Coral Smith, Jan Konig) V Team Greig (Jodi Neindorf, Leslie Hughes, Jeff Thompson, Dan Greig). This was another great game with a final score of 29/7 allowing Team Konig a place in the finals.
After a well deserved lunch break the final was played in ideal conditions with a gentle breeze blowing to make it a pleasant afternoon for both spectators and bowlers. Team Cunningham got away with a flying start and won the first 9 ends when team Konig came back to make both teams play to their best ability with beautiful draw shots played by both teams. Final result 26/16 to Team Cunningham. The game was played in a very competitive manner with great bowls played by both teams. This was due to the direction and encouragement from both skippers – well done.
Congratulations to the Winners Team Cunningham and Runner’s Up Team Konig.
Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, Trish Cunningham was unable to play and was replaced by Liz Marshall.
