  • bowlers with trophy

    Fourteen members took to the green for the first one-day game of the season, the traditional "yardstick" competition for the Valerie Smith Memorial Trophy. It was lovely to welcome some new members taking part for the first time.

    Organised by Kath Matthews and Bill Greenway the competition consisted of 25 ends of 2 bowls, with every bowl finishing within a yard of the jack (we still work in imperial measurements here), as measured using the official "stick", scoring one point.

    Competition was very close and in both the ladies' and men's groups there were ties for for first position - between Deb Sherriff and Kath Matthews for the ladies and Peter Hancock and Quentin Smith for the gents. This required a "penalty shoot-out", so all four bowled a single bowl at the same time to one jack - in a "spider" format. Even then the competition was close, with Kath and Quentin just overcoming their opponents.
