Le Pines Triples

Le Pine Triples Entry

The 2018 edition of the Le Pines Triples, will be held on August 18th 2018.  Over the last few years we have moved the Le Pines triples from the summer break to before the season. Last year the tournament was during the AFL bye week in finals. That was a hard time for club as they all have practice matches etc during that time, before Pennant season kicks off. We have moved the Le Pines Triples to August this year to avoid all the practice match and the AFL.

New Start time for the Le Pines Triples.

Being in August we have moved the start time to 10:30am.  With registration from 10am. We know that a number of teams travel from across the state, this should mean that we are finished early enough that they start their return trip in daylight.

Moving to an earlier time means that we also have to cater for the day, in the past we have provided Salad rolls, this year we will do a Lunch and nibbles at the end of the day.

Results of the Le Pines Triples for 2017

First bowl of the season

First bowl of the season

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.
