The Club triples tournament was played on a bright Saturday afternoon down at the Jedburgh club with 10 triples competing in a knockout competition. There were some very strong triples including the likes of Ronnie Kingswood, Dave Hill and Darrie Scott and the team of Hugh Fisher, Steven Fisher and Ian Yule. However it was not be to their day as both teams had an early exit in the first round.
It was to be the triple of Greg Nagle, Robert Hogg Jnr & Dougie Munro up against Ann Gilfillan, Irene Watters & John Taylor competing in the final. A very close game throughout although maybe team Taylor had most of the fortune as they went on to win 10-3 and claim the prize deservedly on the day.
A great warm up for the Kerr Memorial Pro-am which takes place this Saturday (19th June). We are still looking for more entries which will close on Thursday night so please get your name down. Even if you don't want to play you are more than welcome down to enjoy this great days fun bowling. Play commences at 12noon up until "yon" time! :)
The Club 2 Bowl Pairs got underway on Sunday with a total of 22 names going into the hat and all trying to gain more points in the Order of Merit. The draw threw up some interesting pairs and as the day went on the bowling standard increased with every shot. This competition is played over 11 ends so every shot is vital and there is little room for loose bowling.
The Semi-finals were keenly contested affairs and in the 1st semi the pair of David Hynd and Greg Nagle managed to see of the interest of Jean Ervine and Steven Fisher finishing 9 shots up.
The 2nd semi was a much closer game with the favourites of Ian Dick and John Taylor coming up against the Husband and Wife pair of Laura and David Lightbody. The game was so tight that after 11 ends they couldn't be separated and it took an extra end to see Laura and David claim the vital shot to win through 8-9.
The Final saw David and Greg get of to a flier and after 2 ends the led 5-0 but some dogged determination from the matrimonial pair seen them claw their way back in to the game and they led 5-6. The next end could have proved crucial as Laura and David held 4 shots but Greg had other ideas and drew a perfect shot with his last to claim 1 shot and tie things up again at 6-6. Things stayed much the same and going into the last end the scores were tied at 8-8. This is where Laura stepped up and, as she had all day, she put her 2nd bowl right on top of the Jack and this proved to be the winning shot, and sending the trophy back to the Lightbody house hold.
This victory gives David 2 out of 2 for the season and also sees Laura with 1 win and a runners-up.
The opening tournament of the 2010 Season got underway with around 19 members entering to challenge for the Silverware. The Tournament is drawn out of the hat and it threw up some interesting teams of Triples and Pairs. As the Day went on the Triple of Ann Gillfillan, Anderew Dalymple and David Lightbody (skip) and the Pair of Laura Lightbody and John Taylor (skip) went on to win all their respective games and both teams ended up with 3 wins and +18 shots but unfortunatly for Laura and John playing as a pair meant a 1/4 shot penalty and this meant Ann, Andrew and David Claimed the trophy on shots difference.
