Wednesday social bowls has kicked off once again, on what turned out to be a reasonably pleasant afternoon for a game of bowls.
We had a group of 30 people playing which was a very good start. Two visitors joined our proceedings, Matt Perkins, from East Ivanhoe, and Alan Mason, from City of Heidelberg. We hope they enjoyed their day at Rosanna enough to come back next week.
Two games of 13 ends was the format, with teams scoring 10 points for a win, plus one point for each end they won. Some very good bowls were put down, with the odd one, or two, going astray.
Jane Edgcumbe, showing her skipping skills (and not with a rope) was ably supported by Ray Prestney and Neil Cooper, to amass 38 points in their two games, to earn the right to crow for a week.
Matt Perkins skipped the visitors team and was supported by Alan Mason, and a ring-in, John Aldridge, to grab second spot with 37 points, whilst Joan Webber led her team of John Mydlar and Noel Broadhurst, into third place with 36 points.
Mick Tilley won first prize in the raffle.
Thank you to everyone who played in and supported the afternoon, and congratulations to all the winners.
See you next week, 06 April, 2022, at 12:30.
Midweek Tuesday 25 January 2022.
Rosanna had one side up and two down in the Bowls Victoria Midweek Competion yesterday.
Side 1 hosted top of table City of Heidelberg, and overcame the opposition by 23 shots in a payback for earlier in the season, when it was an unfavourable result for Rosanna. Our losing rink only went down by 2 shots in a great comeback effort. The other two rinks won by 12 and 13 shots with the best winning rink honours going to Robin Doherty (lead), Margaret Hunt (second), John Aldridge (third) and Don Casey (skip).
The side is now 5th on the ladder on 70 points, five behind 4th placed Bundoora, and 10 behind the top three sides who are all equal on 80 points.
Next week they play away at Brunswick (6th).
Side 2 had a tough day at the office going down to Ivanhoe, at Ivanhoe, by 34 shots. They managed to eke two points out of the game, however, were overwhelmed by Ivanhoe’s other two rinks. The side is 15 points out of the four and has a chance of making finals if they can snare a couple of wins before season’s end.
Next week they will host 8th placed MCC.
Side 3 unfortunately had a disastrous day going down by 64 shots. They currently languish in bottom spot on the ladder and do not appear to have any chance of making finals.
Next week they will host Thornbury.
