Showers threaten but play goes ahead

WINNERS: Iain Campbell and David Botting claimed the win in the Millicent Bowls Club 2-4-2 last week.


HEAVY showers threatened to derail the Millicent Bowls Club 2-4-2 competition last week, but the skies cleared for 30 players to compete in 20 ends of bowls.

David Botting and Iain Campbell claimed the honours with a score of 34+15, ahead of Arthur O’Connell and Sarah Ross with 33+17.

Other winning teams were Peter Dunnicliff/Carl Schapel 32+15, a triple of Graham Loveday/David Taylor/Neil Whelan 32+10, Sam Schofield/Bill Burdon 32+7 and Malcolm Wright/Peter Scanlon 32+1.

The members were saddened to be informed of the passing of one of the club’s past presidents, Lance Evans.

Evans was president from 2008 to 2010 and members paid tribute with a minute’s silence.
