In unexpectedly warm conditions the Victorians got away to a great start on day one by comfortably winning both games. In game one the team of Tongala’s Geoff Tinning, Denis Arthur from Queenscliff, Yarra Glen’s Frank Watsford and skipper Barrie Close from Queenscliff displayed great form to record an impressive 18-shot win over their Tasmanian opponents. Ocean Grove’s Ken Thomas, skipping for the first time at this level of competition, led his team to a four-shot win, whilst veteran skipper Noel Waite from Auburn and his team survived a battle against Roly Coad to get up by just a shot. In the other games West Aus- tralia defeated ACT 75-38 whilst in the ‘Battle of the Titans’ Queensland defeated NSW 60-54. Game two against West Australia was much tighter, but the Victorians played good bowls to win overall by 16 shots. Barrie Close’s team contin- ued their good form with an 18-shot win, while Waite and his team of Kar- ingal’s Lyle Taberner, Gary Matheson from Altona and Yarraville Footscray’s Ray Morrissey also recorded a win. Unfortunately the team of Stan Blight from Ivanhoe, Melbourne’s Brian Richards, Ian Ross from Bendigo and Thomas went down by seven. The other games saw NSW defeat Tasmania 69-35 and Queensland win narrowly against ACT 57-54. Fine and warm weather was again the setting for day two of competi- tion. It was to be a tough one for the Vics with games against NSW and Queensland scheduled. A win against one of these states was essential but unfortunately it was not to be the case. The Vics started poorly against NSW and were never really in the game. Barrie Close and his team continued their good form with a 15-shot win, but unfortunately former international Sam Laguzza and his NSW teammates gave the Ken Thomas rink a real lesson. The Victorians scored only one rink win in this match with Noel Waite’s quartet going down to Brian Harriott by seven. For the third successive year the Victorian 60 & Over side has ued their good form with an 18-shot win, while Waite and his team of Kar- Seniors Silver Streak
