The Le Pine Triples Tournament 2nd September 2017.
The day started with some of our members busy in the kitchen making delicious ham and salad rolls and preparing platters for our visitors. Thanks to all who helped purchase and prepare the food.
The event commenced with our President Michael Walker welcoming our Guest the Hon. John Pesutto and the 18 teams.
The Tournament and our 2017/18 bowls season were then officially opened by John Pesutto who then rolled down a bowl to open the green, and a very good bowl at that.
The Tournament consisted of three games of ten ends of two bowl triples. After the first game nibbles and drinks were enjoyed around the bar. Thanks to Travis for his great work behind the bar. Then out for another 10 ends of bowls, the weather was not the best but the rain was only short lived and the wind not too bad. Following this set of games afternoon tea was served in the dining room, where all enjoyed the ham and salad rolls and the odd beverage as well.
Back to the green and the final game, with the prizes still up for grabs with some of the better performed teams playing each other. Then while the players enjoyed and drink and a barbeque cooked by Damo and helpers or score board official Julie Drummond did her final calculations.
The winners were. Mick Diorietes, Rod and Don Clancy the only team with 3 wins taking away the first prize of $540.
Second were the boys from Richmond Union, Lawman, Gray and Bundy receiving $180 for 2 wins and a draw.
Beat last went to Michael Walker, Stuart Paxton and Ron Scerri winning $90.
There were also two random prizes of wine and a bowls bag presented.
