Byron Bay Men

Results week ending Sunday August 19

The District Champion of Champion Pairs played at Ocean Shores was Jeff Fleming and Tom Barry missed out in reaching the Final by one shot. In blustery conditions on Saturday they defeated Mullumbimby 29–11 and on Sunday in the morning game defeated Ocean Shores 25–18 and the afternoon game was the semi against Condong and went to the last end holding shot until the opposition somehow got one in to take out the game 21–20. A great try but plenty of game ahead for these two players to win some championships.

Thursdays self-selected pairs winners this week were Peter Lofts and Mike Hale with Ray Hendo and Peter Darby runners-up and the meat tray was won by John Brooker; the jackpot was not won and is $210 next week.
