This is a testament to Dreamline's comfort in the hand and reliable, consistent performance. Gold Medal Winners of the Fours at the Aust Junior Boys Championships The Dreamline Royale, a majestic purple/white speckle, is available in very limited numbers insizes2,3and4 while stocks last. at Shepparton Park will recall the fine display, when he stopped the march of 2000 World Bowls singles champion Jeremy Henry from Ireland in its tracks in the third round. Against Simmons and Martin, Lindsay, in cahoots with the close-drawing Nye, were simply too strong for the richly talented Clayton duo. The much favoured combi- nation of Geoff Mitchell from Barooga Sports and Joe Luci from Numurkah Golf were next to have their copybook blotted, at the hands of fellow six-game- winners Darryl Hazell and Alan Ross from Tocumwal, which lowered the unblemished card count down to six. Round eight saw two more undefeated contenders fall, this time it was the previous round's giant killers Hazell and Ross, then Numurkah's Phil Perkins and John Adams, who were put to the sword. It was in this round that Don- aldson and Loughlin, who went home with the healthy runner-up purse, had to garner a four on the final end to win by one against Chirnside Park's Wally Tilbury and Peter Twomey. Ironically, in the previous round Tilbury and Twomey were on the receiving end of a 35-shot hammering from former winners Garry Ball and Neville Brown. Bowls, it's a funny game! However, with a 16-shot win over Lindsay and Nye - whose schedule saw them play three of the four overnight leaders on the final day - Tonn and Gilmore secured the major share of the Plumbtec payload; while Donald- son and Loughlin made up the ten shots they were in arrears to the Wilson brothers after eight rounds, to clinch third place on a countback. - David Allen • Top: Plumbtec's Bruce Agnew with winners Frank Tonn and Terry Gilmore. • Above: Kingsbury's Rihai Whaikawa skipped his way to fifth place. • Above Right: Matty Wilson from Bendigo finished well up in the prizemoney. 2009 Plumbtec Golden Pairs at Numurkah Golf Bowls Club 1st F Tonn, T Gilmore (Gunbower) 18 points +142 shots; 2nd D Donaldson (Essendon), B Loughlin (Altona) 18 +120 (countback); 3rd A Wilson (Essendon), M Wilson (Bendigo) 18 +120; 4th C Power (Kilmore), R Bone (Shepparton Park) 18 +56; 5th R Whaikawa (Kingsbury), J Kiuti (Toorak) 17 +89; 6th M Flapper, M Ryan (Essendon) 16 +138; 7th R McCumber, G Beckham (Eaglehawk) 16 +100; 8th P Perkins, J Adams (Numurkah) 16 +66; 9th G Ball (Altona), N Brown (Yarraville Footscray) 14 +116; 10th B Cosgrove (Tocumwal), G Koopman (Nathalia) 14 +92.
