WITH A jackpot in the vicinity of $400 in the offing, you’d be nuts to be anywhere but the Bowraville Bowls Den at 1pm on Thursday.

Tristram Edwards and Chris D’elboux joined forces to win the day last week with Andy DalSanto, Gavin Gallop and Greg Kirkham runners-up.  

Saturday saw the last team event for 2018 decided in the Mixed Triples with Janine Fletcher, Steve Johnson and Dean Roe taking on Tracey Armes, Jim Armes and Paul O’Neill. Twas another fitting finale as both teams went shot for shot to have it decided on the final end.

Up 17-16 but down two shots, Roey produced the shot of the day with his last bowl, picking up kitty to make four shots for his team. Roey’s squad deserved 21-16 victors.

Open pairs finalists Butch, Al, Rod and Josh
