Bowls

On Sunday, April 9 Bombala hosted pennants against Tura Beach at Bombala in the last game of the season and by all accounts it was a doozy with two rinks finished and two ends to play Bombala was four shots behind. In the last two ends Bombala got four to draw level then won two take the victory shots 63-61, rinks 2-1, points 9-1. A Fantastic team effort and a big thank-you to every bowler who represented the club during the season. Bombala finished third overall and did beat every side above us. Next week rounds 1 and 2 of the major pairs sponsored by Pricilla's at the Heritage Restaurant & Guesthouse are due to be played.   Jack
