Corowa RSL Indoor Bowls
Tuesday, April 11 was a fantastic display of indoor bowling for the Corowa RSL Indoor Bowls members.
There were some close misses and somewhat tight results.
The runner up team with two wins and 31 points was lead A Smith, second D Pleming, third E Jones and their skip JW Webber.
The winning team proved too good for their opponents also with two wins and 32 points was lead Ken Pleming, second Geraldine Monish, third David Chapman and their skip leading by example Steve Jones.
On Thursday, April 13 Corowa RSL Indoor Bowls had two of their teams bowling at home and one away in pennant competition.
The two teams bowling at home were up against two Mulwala teams and the other Corowa team was up against an SS&A team in Albury.
The Corowa2 team had a very narrow victory against Mulwala 3, the performance of the Corowa2 team was much improved compared to last week.
Also the performance of the Corowa 3 team again was a big improvement from last week.
Every time the club witnesses their teams performing well and winning it gives the members of the club a real boost of confidence.
The Corowa 1 team unfortunately lost to the number 1 team in the pennant, the game itself was an even contest until the 17th end where the opposition out bowled the Corowa team and beat them.
Again the improvement shown by all the Corowa teams is most encouraging and great for upcoming games.
