MIXED PAIRS CHAMPIONSHIP 2017-18
The club held the Mixed Pairs Championship over the weekend 2-3 December. There were 10 entries played in very hot conditions. At the end of the 1st day the field was reduced to four teams, Alan Thom & Jill Phillips with 2 lives and 1 lifers Alan Bright & Glenis Muir, Mike Reddy & Evelyn Bradley, Paul Huxtable & Mavis Topia. Alan Thom eliminated Alan Bright 15-8 and Mike Reddy took out Paul Huxtable 19-14. The next round was a final possible final of 18 ends and no time limit. This was a great match with the scores tied at 12 all at the 13th end. Alan then scored 5 shots to take the lead 17-12 but Mike and Evelyn fought back with Alan not scoring again and drew level 17 all on the last end. This meant they had to play an extra end with Mike scoring 1 shot and thereby having to play again in the final proper. This match once again saw some great bowls by both team with score at 10 all on the 9th end but this time it was Mike’s team to score 4 shots and never relinquishing the lead to take out the Championship 25-10. Thanks to the Greenkeeper Kevin, Match Convenor, Tupu and of course our raffle Lady Kath and everyone else that assisted throughout the 2 days.
