Pennant season is well under way with this last weekend showing a pretty good result for the club with three grades winning and one losing. The 5’s broke their drought in very convincing fashion with a 10-0 scoreline over Greenwell Pt. which was also the score at home where the 7’s played Callala and had three very good rink wins. The 2’s ventured down the road to Conjola and were not so lucky, with the win going to the home side 9-1, although the overall scorecard did not really reflect the closeness of the tussle. At Sussex Inlet R.S.L. the 6’s had a real battle on their hands against the current champs and, lead by Bluey’s team of Alec Venn, Bruce Bailey & Rob Cattley we managed to get over the line with one winning rink, one draw & a loss for an 8.5 to 1.5 win overall. Also on the weekend we saw three games of club pairs with Mick Raftery/ Mick Duprez having a very close win over Mick Sawicki/ Ron Amos; Paul James/ Glenn Hodge having an equally tight win over Graham Robbo/ Stan Croker; and in the last game defending champs Grassy & R.A.Fuller coming home against Kev Whalan & Dave Chandler.
Results for the week:- Wed. social:- winners:- Rob Cattley/ Greg Geering/ Greg Brumby; runners up:- Graham Robbo/ Col Ross/ Struan Robertson

SUPER SINGLES. Secretary Manager Alan Shapley starting on 12 got away to a slow start allowing Gary McGuire to eliminate the handicap difference after 8 ends. At that stage three 4's in a row to Gary made Alan's future look grim at that time however he likes a challenge.
After 22 ends he took the lead, score 29/28. After the next end it was 29/29 all with Gary holding two shots. On his last bowl a brilliant on-shot from Alan picked up the jack but alas it drifted away to give Gary a 31/29 win. Great game.
