Bowls In Focus : June July 2011
Bowls In Focus 21 Glenn Thatcher (+44) and Stewart Shuttleworth from Geelong West (+35). At the other end of the spectrum teams captained by Brian Smith from Lara and Kyneton’s Darren Hurford found their way into the finals despite losses in two games, while Trafalgar’s Stephen Dawson, Paul Dawson, Martin Kenny and Peter Phyland got through with three wins, a draw and just three shots up. Making every post a winner the Trafalgar men worked their way into the semi finals, while Shuttle- worth and his Geelong West teammates Darko Radoslav, Gavin Lane and Ian Fitzpatrick can thank some questionable mathematics for their final four berth. Playing against the Lee Williams Eltham rink, they trailed by two going into the sixth and final end of their quarter final, but held two counters about 60cm from the jack. Mysteriously, Williams opted not to play his final bowl and declared the head – he had ‘calculated’ that his side was three shot up – so a draw was recorded and an extra end required. In the one-end decider Shuttleworth’s team took full advantage by collecting three and gaining promotion to the semi finals. However, it was Stephen Taylor and his Kyneton Golfers who had the numbers to oust the Geelong West quartet, while Wilson, Rennex, Wilson and Condon did enough in the corresponding six-ender to eliminate the Trafalgar men. Come the main event and it was a second end count of five to the young composite side that ef- fectively sealed its outcome and would earn them a healthy first place payout. The Lynch Fours, which was first conducted in 1975, was a fitting finale to this year’s extravaganza, and although thermal underwear was more the rule than the exception throughout the Carnival, it was still widely complimented as one of the best in recent memory. - David Allen Anne & Greg Sherman 12 Nolan Street Bendigo, Vic. 3550 Phone: 03 5442 2199 Fax: 03 5441 6619 www.bendigobowlsshop.com.au WE SELL ALL MAJOR BRANDS ONLINE NOW!
