On a perfect weather day for bowls, ten bowlers turned up and enjoyed one game of pairs and one game of triples. Marie Martin (skip), Sandy Cameron (lead) won decisively from Patty Manning (skip) and Erica Strahan (lead) with a final score of 29 shots to 7.
The triples team of Cheryl Halls, Pat Wagstaff and Beth Whittington led all the way from Joan Lotze, Mary Campbell and Pat Trower (visitor). The final score was 19 shots to 12.
There are several members who are not bowling at the moment due to injury or illness. We wish them all a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing them back at bowls soon.
In particular, members wish Patron,Betty Gartner a belated happy birthday and a good recovery from her stay in hospital.

Tuross Head Men
Despite a drop in entries, Tuross Head Men’s Bowling Club has conducted another very successful May Carnival. As usual local businesses have been very supportive in their sponsorship.
A big thanks to Hallmark Real Estate, AMH Automotive Group, Platinum Blinds and Awnings and Tuross Pharmacy for their ongoing generous support.
As with all events we run we are very grateful for the wonderful support from the Tuross Head Country Club – the greenkeepers, bar staff and administrative staff all do whatever they can to make the carnival a success.
This year the local members have been very supportive and have rallied to boost the numbers.
Unfortunately we had to cancel the fifth day – the mixed medley – due to the low level of entries. It was great to see that local players figured in the prize money on every day.
The carnival started with a mixed pairs event with visitors Jan and John Roche coming first.
Locals Lorraine Wake and Michael Kennedy came second in front of Dalmeny’s Pat Barkham and Barry Lymbery.
Best last game went to locals Sharron Perry and Joel Hilliard.
The Hallmark Real Estate Open Pairs was the first of several successful days for Bodalla’s Paul Vanda and Matthew Morton. They edged out locals Peter Bird and Stuart Graham.
Other locals, Peter Macdonald and John Monks, filled third place and Jim Howden and John Fahey had the best last game.
Barry Lymbery continued his good week when he teamed with Mila and Terry Knudson to take out the Open Triples sponsored by Platinum Blinds and Awnings.
Locals Ray Downey, Peter Bird and Jason Hossack came next ahead of another local team of Michael Kennedy, Lorraine Wake and Allan Etheredge. Danny Thomson, Matty Morton and Paul Vanda had the best last game.
The AMH Automotive Group’s Men’s Pairs finished the Carnival with Danny Thompson and Paul Vanda edging out Moruya’s Brad Larkin and Bodalla’s Shane Cooper.
Barry Lymbery and Terry Knudson added to their winnings coming in third. Stuart Graham and John Monks had the best last game.
A shortened report this week with only one game played due to the women’s May carnival and the inclement weather which unfortunately interrupted the major pairs’ games at the weekend.
As the Goose was on chauffeur duties only Monday’s book results were available for the 36 bowlers which was once again ably organised by our man Ken in fine conditions.
The highest winning margin decided the winners in big John Oarley, Browny and Peter Hit-Holden from the runners-up in Ex. PM Neil, Towelling Dowling and Account Cartwright.
No resting toucher was recorded nor was the $197 jackpot won.
Also the wrong bias sinners and raffle winners escaped a mention but they will certainly all get a run next week.
