Corowa RSL Indoor Bowls results

Tuesday, June 6 provided interesting competition. The teams were evenly matched and they all had one win and one loss.

Somewhat unusual, the closeness of the games created a lot individual attempts in trying anything to achieve the elusive second win.
The runner-up team with 21 points was lead S. Dudziak, second A. Smith, third G. Monish and their skip K. Pleming. The winning team with 23 points was lead J. Kerr, second M. Dougall, third G. Sander and their skip M. Pratt.

Friday, June 9 provided another good turnout.

The bowling again was entertaining and the members enjoyed the afternoon activity.

The runner-up team with two wins and 33 points was lead D Sander, third K Culhane and their skip J Catlin.

The winning team also with two wins and 35 points was lead E Jones, second G Sander, third G Monish and their skip M Pratt.


The club had only two teams competing this week.

The third of the teams had a bye due to the uneven number of teams competing.

Sadly the two Corowa teams could not perform to their normal standard and suffered losses, one at home and the other in Wangaratta.

With only one pennant game to go, one of the club teams will just miss out in reaching the finals. After consulting all the other clubs taking part in the pennant competition, it was decided that all the finals will be contested at the Corowa RSL because Corowa RSL is the best venue for this competition.
