Watching bowling blossom
THE magic that had been Norman Bethell two weekends ago evaporated on Saturday as he studiously avoided any contact with prizemoney.
Bethell was nevertheless happy with the way Saturday afternoon competition at Emu Park Bowls Club continues to blossom.
This week all teams produced some magnificent stuff in one of their matches but failed to back it up with their other match of the afternoon.
The Yeppoon “multi-national” pairing of Kiwi Brian “Curly” Churstain and Dave “The Pom” Lee won both games and again finished the weekend with a major share of the Marty Flowers Builders sponsored prizemoney.
Emu Park pair Eddie Hudson and Eddie O’Donnell also managed a share when finishing runner-up while another Emu Park team, Tony Smith and Mick Herberts, were third.
Bethell reports that had the prizes been issued after the opening round then it would have produced a totally different finish.
Merv Bird and Ken Ackary, from the Emu Park club, were on fire for the opening match.
“They played magic bowls in the first game but then lost the second,” he said.
The three bowls, open pairs competition continues at the Emu Park Bowls Club this Saturday afternoon.
