THE much welcome rain and cold weather has unfortunately put a dampener on social bowls at Heathcote Bowling Club with numbers significantly down on the normal Wednesday and Saturday attendances.
Under threatening skies on Wednesday, only six hardy bowlers turned up to play three games of triples.
The winners were Eileen O’Brien, Les Morante and Greg Speirs. Runners-up were Hal Dihm, Bill Gardiner and Dinah Finn.
On Saturday in cold and windy conditions once again, only six bowlers showed up to play three games of triples.
The winners were Greg Speirs, Brett Mathieson and Denise Anderson. Runners-up were Ray Anderson, Lorraine Speirs and Ken Reader.
The jackpot was not played for and $90 will be up for grabs today, weather permitting.
The second winter tournament is a two bowls triples event and will be played on Sunday, July 1 at 10am. More players and teams are welcome.
Today: Mixed social bowls at 1pm.
Saturday, June 23: Mixed social bowls at 1pm.
Sunday, July 1: Two bowl triples winter tournament at 10am.
