Malua Bay Men
The Major Singles championship final was played last Friday afternoon on a rather wet green due to the rain over a couple of days. Onlookers were expecting a tight game between Demille Lafferty and Steve Maher but this was not to be. Demille playing beautiful draw bowls soon took a commanding lead and was never really challenged. The final score was 31 shots to 10 for Lafferty. He then went on to play in the finals of the Champion of Club Champions at Bodalla on Saturday. This time he came up against an in-form Chris Pollock from Moruya and was defeated in the first game.
Last Sunday the Minor Singles games were played in great conditions. David Dudman defeated Graeme Dade 31 shots to 18; Smiley Edwards defeated Syd Morris by 31 shots to 21. David Cannon received a forfeit.
In the Veteran Singles games Garry Huddleston defeated Allen Holloway by 25 shots to 22. Michael Cakalic and Richard Dutkiewitz both received forfeits.

Second place went to Les Waldock, Peter Murton and John Spees (skip) who were down 11 to 16 after 11 ends (and after dropping a very big number on end 9) before they caught up on end 20 and picked up two shots on the last end for a 28 to 26 win over Paul Naylor, Shorty Smart and Billy Wilton (skip). Promising young bowler Jay Breust was in fine form to get the first resting toucher at 1.34, well done Jay.

Gary began to draw clear and came away with a 31 to 21 win. The final was played on Sunday between brothers Steve and Gary Murane. The game was very even early on with the lead changing 6 times in the first 12 ends and it was at this stage that Gary started to get the upper hand to lead 19 to 12 after 20 ends. Steve fought back to be 4 shots down after 28 ends. Gary then picked up the next 3 ends to win the match 31 to 21.
