May Carnival a Great Success

By |2022-05-28T11:31:04+10:00May 24th, 2022|Categories: Men's Bowls, Uncategorized|

After an extended period without any carnivals/tournaments, the Men’s Sub Club held a three day Carnival on May 17, 18 and 19. The weather was very kind and the greens got better and better everyday. A big thanks to the greens staff for their great work! Overall the numbers were down but there were enough for there to be very competitive bowls in each of the events.

The first event was mixed pairs with 16 teams. We had several visitors from Picton and Camden. Local teams dominated the prize winners. Denise and Bruce Lidbury came first with 3 wins and a plus 41 shot margin. Rita and Noel Downie came second with 3 wins plus 33. Rose Farrington and Allan Etheredge finished third with 2 wins plus 20. Best last game went to Peter Davies and Gail Page.

The event on Wednesday the 18th was open triples. There were 14 teams and we were joined by some strong teams from Canberra and Dubbo. Peter Davies, Joel Hilliard and Gail Page survived a tough last game to come first with 3 wins and plus 34. Rose Farrington joined Peter and Irene Macdonald to finish second with 3 wins and plus 24. They edged out the Canberra side of Shane Allen, Michael Corby and Dale Budnick on a count back on the number of ends won. The best last game went to Marlou and Phil Rollason and Lorraine Bird.

Open Pairs were played on Thursday with visitors taking the spoils in an event where there were no 3 game winners! In fact 9 teams won two games and only one side failed to win a game! Michael Corby (Canberra) and Craig Godwin (Ulladulla) won the day with 2 wins plus 20 just ahead of Canberra’s Shane Allen and Dale Budnick on 2 wins and plus 19. Peter Davies and Gail Page rounded off a successful carnival when they were third with 2 wins and plus 8. Best last game went to Jim Madden and Bruce Magilton.

A big thanks to everyone who helped in running the event. A special thanks must go to the club staff – the greens staff, the bar staff and the kitchen. As always members of the womens club gave invaluable help in taking lunch orders and selling raffle tickets. Sincere thanks to Irene Macdonald and Rose Farrington for all the work they do. Finally, Andrew Farrington, our dedicated bowls organiser spent many hours making sure all the parts of organising and running a carnival fitted together.

Pat and John Wagstaff Win Mixed Pairs Championship

By |2021-10-31T08:01:37+11:00October 31st, 2021|Categories: Men's Bowls, Uncategorized|

The Mixed Pairs Championship has been finalised with Pat and John Wagstaff coming from behind to outlast Bruce and Denise Lidbury in a fantastic game. This was an excellent final between two pairings with great back stories. The Lidburys were out to win their fifth title in six years – they couldn’t play in 2020 due to illness. Apart from last year Denise has played in every final of this event since 2011! Her side won 7 of the 9 Championships adding these to four victories between 2002 and 2009 – not a bad record!

For their part, the Wagstaffs were playing in their first Championship after returning to the Club after a ten year break. The records show that John dominated the Major Singles in the early 2000s winning the title four times!

The Lidburys started the match very well and dominated the early ends with both players in good touch. By the 7th end they had set up an advantage of 14 – 3! From this point the momentum changed. The Wagstaffs won 6 of the next 7 ends to draw level at 15 all after 14 ends.

The game was set up for a great final third as the players moved into the championship ends. The final 7 ends were very closely fought. The Wagstaffs moved in front at 17 – 15 only to see the Lidburys regain the lead at 18 – 17 after 17 ends. The Wagstaffs were able to win the next 3 ends in very tight situations. With just the last end to play they were in front by 21 – 18. This end was very close. The Lidburys had the better of the play and held the shot throughout. However, they were unable to pick up enough shots to grab victory. They managed 2 shots to see the final score of 21 – 20 in favour of the Wagstaffs.

Congratulations to both teams for producing such a great match! For the winners both Pat and John both played their part in the victory – including the occasional good natured banter from Pat that eased the tension! With some great draw bowls, John showed why he has been such a formidable singles player! As usual the Lidburys were always in the game despite periods when it looked as if luck had deserted them! Well done to all four players and a special congratulations to the Wagstaffs!
