Tuross Head Open Pairs – Denise Lidbury ( sub for Doreen Monks) & Sue Fahey – reached the quarter finals and were defeated by Sarah Bodington Team from Tuncurry.

Tuross Head Open Fours – Averial Cox, Rose Farrington, Sue Fahey & Denise Lidbury reached the quarter finals, and were defeated by the Natasha Scott team from Raymond Terrace who went on to win the fours.

Tuross Head Triples – Averial Cox, Rose Farrington & Denise Lidbury who were defeated in the first round by Lake Cathie who were the eventual runners up of the triples.

26 teams braved very cold conditions to play in the Mixed Pairs Carnival at Tuross Head on the 19th of July.

There were three games of twelve ends played over the day and while the conditions were difficult, the greens were a credit to the green keepers – they ran beautifully.

The day was sponsored by Travel team Batemans Bay and at the end of the day there were four, three game winners.

The winners on the day were:

1st Denise and Bruce Lidbury – 6 points plus 35;
2nd Doug and Carol Williams – 6 points plus 21;
3rd Phil and Marlou Rollinson- 6 points plus 19 points.

There was also another five lucky draws, and they went to Gary Beves, Jacqui Dummett, Chris Roxby , Jason Hossack and Stan Peck.

Thank you to all the organisers for such a successful day.

1st place Denise & Bruce Lidbury
2nd Place Doug and Carol Williams
