Kimberly Clark 2-4-2
On Thursday 6th March there were 33 bowlers in attendance for the Kimberly Clark 2-4-2. This meant that we played the competition between 15 teams of pairs & 1 team of triples on the Hahn & Somerset greens.
The competition was a lot closer than we have seen in a while with the winning combinations being Wayne Burris & Ray Doecke (28+3), Max Richards & Jim Godden (30+5), Malcolm MacRobert & Iain Campbell (31+3), Jim Campbell & Lindsay Warneke (31+7).
Finishing with a score of 31+10, there was a draw for third place between the teams of Peter Hyland & John Madden & Peter Bateman & Denis Clifford & the pairing of Alan Correll & Phil Ryan finished in second spot scoring 32+5.
The winners for the day, after a hard fought & tight game, where Colin Pye & Neil Whelan with 33+4.
The Men’s Meeting that followed the competition was well represented & some interesting debates have given some food for thought with the Millicent Bowling Club’s A.G.M. fast approaching.
