In his second year at the club, Ian Smethurst defeated Rod Brown to take out this year’s RS Club A grade title.
It was a close battle throughout with Smethurst claiming the win 25-22.
It was Smethurst’s first win at the RS Club, having previously won three singles titles before he moved to Finley from Melbourne.
Thursday’s Trade Day at the RSC was again well supported with winners on the day being Warren Blanch, Steve Lunn and Peter Wilson.
In the Men’s Club Pairs Championship Steve Malone and John Reynolds defeated Peter Elull and Rod Brown 18-13 to advance to the final.
Archie West and David Polkinghorne also booked their spot in the decider after defeating Ian Smethurst and Kieran Beare 21-17.
The final will be played this afternoon, so if you want to watch some good bowling come on down.
Pennant resumes again on January 19 and 20.
The main event of the club’s bowling program, the Armstrong’s Quadripartite Medley, will be played tomorrow.
Near capacity entries have been accepted for the contest, comprising singles, pairs, triples and fours.
This is the 44th occasion this event has been staged and will be sponsored by Hutcheon and Pearce.
With pleasant conditions, bowling will be at a high standard and certainly should attract many spectators to watch matches of their choice.
A call is made for some volunteers to assist with arranging dining room tables this afternoon at 2pm; contact Nan if available to help.
The event will be played at the two Finley clubs and thanks is expressed to the RS Club for the use of their greens.
