Our Wednesday Division Two team traveled to Oakbank to play their semi-final with high hopes of repeating their win over Lobethal the previous week. Unfortunately they were not able to complete the win going down by forty shots. The problem was not made easier when Eric Biar had to retire at the half time mark leaving Bill Robertson’s rink one bowler short.
Tom Hennesey’s rink battled hard and got home by ten shots however Ron Bateman’s rink also had a day they would not wish to remember going down by twenty two shots.
Given the overall result, all bowlers who made up the Division Two team throughout the year are to be congratulated on making the finals.
