That’s all for this week
See you all on the greens on Tuesday.
3 Gold travelled to Bullsbrook today by bus which was expertly driven by Brett who delivered us safely home after a great day of bowls. As we drove closer the land was dryer and while we played bowls the sound of sirens made us look up to check where the fire trucks were going. Lower Chittering was the venue and with the aid of fire choppers the blaze was brought under control. Meanwhile there was a blaze on the green with Mark Ryan’s team firing away to a good lead and wasn’t headed all day coming away with a 21 point win.
The other rinks had a slow start and all came back to see Greg’s team finish 6 ahead and Dave Urqhart’s team winning by 11. The last rink to finish was Dave Webber’s team who were down on the last end. With 15 Joondalup members looking on Dave played a terrific bowl to draw 19-19.
Thanks to Chris Lewis of Progress Developments for sponsoring and organising the bus.
