Weather hampers season start

Open Singles Championship winner Scott Wilson.

Unfortunately, bad weather caused the cancellation of the first tournament of the Leigh season, the Cameron/Penney Tournament.

Heavy rain on Friday night left the green under water on Saturday morning, making it unplayable.

This tournament will be rescheduled for later in the season.

The Club Championship Singles were played on October 7 and 8. Fifteen bowlers entered and each bowler had two lives. In the end, we ran out of time to play the final between Dave Johnson and Scott Wilson. The match was rescheduled for October 14, and Scott Wilson ran out the winner in the final to take this season’s trophy.

The Business House Competition started on October 18. This is very much a fun competition, with two games of 45 minutes each, played every Wednesday. The club can cater for up to 16 teams, so there is still room for more teams to enter. Contact Robert McLean on 027 590 4829.

The Club Championship Pairs were played last weekend, October 21 and 22, and will be followed by the Handicapped Drawn Pairs on Saturday, October 28. The Leads and Twos will be played on Saturday, November 11, followed by the Lion Red Triples Tournament on Saturday, November 25.

Anybody is welcome to come and watch these events and the bar will be open.

Adrienne Bent will be doing the catering for all our tournaments this season, as well as providing meals on Wednesday and Friday nights. Adrienne is very capable in the kitchen so we look forward to enjoying her meals.

The bar is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights with our green keeper, Lance Michell, taking on the bar manager’s role as well. Any enquiries, phone 021 423 144.
