In very windy conditions the 2-4-2 Thursday Bowls Competition was played on the Somerset Green with just six rinks in use and 25 bowlers. Considering the weather they proved to be a hardy group of bowlers. Despite the roaring wind blowing many bowls out of the rinks, the men enjoyed their afternoon especially when the sun occasionally broke through.
The results for the day saw Derk Pietersma and Bill Fennell, and Peter Scanlon & Malcolm Mc Roberts, have a draw. Rink winners were Peter Varcoe and Ron Trewin (30+2), Glenn Schapel and Allan Correll (32+12), Iain Campbell and Peter Bateman (32+14), and runners up were John Scudds and Ray Thiele. Taking home the money on Thursday were Wayne Burris and John Eldridge.
Glenn Schapel had a 70th birthday and was presented with his Veteran Badge by President Derk Pietersma.
