The weather was much more agreeable and provided excellent conditions for bowls. Division One entered the game needing a win to stay in touch with the four and came away with an excellent result against Mt Pleasant. Christine Keller’s rink had a sizable win over Bo Hambly and never looked in trouble. Bob Edward’s rink who led all the way countered a fight-back mid match but moved away for a comfortable victory over Chad Vivian. Malcolm Keller’s rink had a fight all day against Luke West with the lead changing hands until with one end to play the scores were level. Unfortunately the final result ended two down.
Next week, the last for 2017 will be at Lobethal who sit in second place on the ladder.
