The first round of the Dave Tucker Memorial Minor Singles saw Mike Keegan defeat Mark Sommerville 31/24 and Dave Bradshaw had a 31/12 win vs Jon Venn. Also Brian Thurecht def Col Milligan 31/16 and Dave Harrison def Krusty Watson 31/14 to proceed to Round 2.
The second round was played in that howling gale last Saturday. Bowls had a mind of their own for most of the afternoon; conditions were just playable, depending on whom one talked to. Most noteworthy was the match between Terry Hill and Dave Clark, both very capable bowlers. Terry found himself 21/4 down and in dire straights BUT won 31/29! Darcy Nelson had a 31/20 win versus Bob Brooks who was just missing many many shots by a millimeter or two. Dan Prestage had a close win over Richard Nesbitt with a 4 near the end. Dave Harrison def Brian Thurecht 31/17 and newer bowlers Mike Lynn and Les Dunn had a fairly even contest that went Mike's way 31/24. And last to finish was a struggling Chris Machon, the self acclaimed "I never win anything" bowler who defeated Craig Lees 31/27, no mean feat.
Wednesday Social Triples. Gary McGuire/ Chris Machon and young Ivan Traves cleaned up the lucky rink vouchers with a 22/12 win against Ian Pirie/Brian Stanmore/Bob Field. Unlucky (lucky?) losers were OT Hill and Roadblock with a 22/14 loss in a pairs contest against Wallie and Bird-man Bob. Friday Open Pairs. The jackpot had reached $960, must go off soon on the laws of chance. Craig Lees and Les Dunn were in the running but the computer won again. They did however win the $120 weekly prize with 14 points. Marks HB SHOUT was claimed by Ron Wynter, Dave Adamson and Tony Hutchins whilst the KENO voucher gave hope to Geoff Travis and Dave White.

Hi darties, another fine week of competition. All teams really stepping it up and playing awesome darts. Semi-finals are here and congratulations everyone for making it this far, a few more games to decide the champions. Keep up the fantastic darts.
Please be aware of the rules regarding your foot placement on the oche line, your foot must be behind the line at all times, if your foot is over and the scorer or any member of a team calls it, it will be deemed a "no dart" and the score will not be recorded. To be clear, if playing at the Golf Club or the Bowling Club your foot must behind the frame...not on it - if playing at the Ex-Servos or the Star Hotel your foot must be behind the tape on the floor - not on it!
The rule on calling any remaining scores was also clarified at the most recent delegates meeting...the player may ask the SCORER ONLY for the remaining score if they are still at the oche...the player may ask a team-mate for the score if and only if they step back from the oche. Team-mates are not entitled to tell the player the score at any-time unless the player has stepped back from the oche. If you need any clarification on this rule, please ask your captain.
Semi finals start on September 9 for ladies, September 10 for men and September 12 for mixed.
