Tuross Ladies scoop the pool at recent Classic Pairs Bowls tournament

By |2019-09-07T17:00:25+11:00September 6th, 2019|Categories: Women's Bowls|

We held our Classic Pairs on the first weekend in September.  A field of 24 teams participated, coming from as far as Queanbeyan, Canberra, Tathra, Eden and Merimbula as well as our local District clubs.

It was a wonderfully  competitive event and it was so close that  the final result  was  not available until the last players  finished their game, well after the others.

The winners were: Irene Mac Donald and Gail Page- Davies, followed closely in second place by Rita Downie and Carol Williams.  Both were from Tuross Head Country Club and  were the only 5 game winners.

This was followed by three four game winners: In 3rd place were Lesley Gruber and Nerida Black of Queanbeyan,  4th place Donna Seddon and Mandy Stitt of Queanbeyan, 5th place Di Lockhart and Denise Falvey of Tathra.

Denise Lidbury and Sue Fahey of Tuross were  in 6th place, top of the ten 3 game winners, with a mighty 19 points ahead of the next three game winners.

Many thanks to Bowls Organiser Rose Farrington, who, along with her committee, lead a great event. The raffles were beautifully presented as were the table decorations and small mementos, many of them hand made by Rose.

Our thanks again  to  Bronwyn Moore of Travel Team, Batemans Bay  for  sponsoring both our womens events in 2019.

We look forward to  2020 when we hold this event again. Many of the players enjoyed their three night stay in Tuross Head.

Denise Lidbury played Singles, Rose Farrington and Irene Macdonald played in the Pairs, Carol Williams, Rita Downie and  Di Challice played in the Triples and Gail Page- Davies, Sue Fahey, Chris Roxby and Marg Downey played in the Fours.

Special congratulations go to Rose and Irene who won the Pairs competition overall with a mighty 100 points.

Malua Bay won the overall point score to take the shield in 2019 with 340 points. We were delighted to be the runners -up, scoring 295 points. This is no mean feat for a small club.

Well done Tuross Head.

Successful Mixed Bowls Carnival at Tuross Head

By |2019-07-23T13:52:14+11:00July 23rd, 2019|Categories: Women's Bowls|

Last Monday, two full rinks of  bowlers enjoyed a beautiful  day on the greens at Tuross Head playing in the club’s annual  Women’s Mixed Pairs Carnival. Competition was strong, but the bowlers who coped with the very slick  top green were the victors on the day.

We were very grateful to  Bronwyn Moore  of Travel Team Batemans Bay  who was the major sponsor and was there  at the end of the day to present the winners with their prize money.

The prize winners were spread  around the District  bowling clubs: 1st was Keith Pickett and Vicki Herman of Narooma, 2nd was Viv Patrikka and Gail Vigden  of Malua Bay  and 3rd was Paul Vanda and  Rachel Kincaid of Bodalla.
