The MDBA pairs championships were played out at the weekend, also the Zone Juniors played off at Forster B.C. for the chance at a state title.
First to the MDBA pairs, there were a lot close results over the weekend with one side in their semi final match collected a 7 on their last end to gain victory by one shot.
The Champions are as follows. Open Pairs Garry Basham and Dylan Riley
Senior Pairs, Errol Ruprecht And Dave Brandt
Reserve Pairs, Vic McGlashan and my apologies i am not aware who was Vic’s partner in crime but i will endeavor to get his name up here. Well done to all the winners.
Now the juniors. In the fours our juniors were piped at the post in a great game that came down to the last couple of bowls. In the pairs event unfortunately the out come was the same for the Manning District, and the accolades must be forwarded to the Hunter. However in the “Blue Ribbon” event Ryan McGuire, who appeared in all three finals, made it one for our district when he accounted for the Hunters representative. The district congratulates all the juniors that participated in the zone championships. And good luck Ryan in the state games in July.
