Pottsville Men
Wednesday January 15: Social Bowls – With all rinks full today, Dave Lee, Jim Banks and Tony Halloran were the lucky winners. Brian Jackson and Jim Field joined forces and took out the runners-up money.
Saturday January 18: With 2 championship games as well as social bowls, the greens were at overflow point again. Championships – Game 1 saw the underdogs give the big guns quite a shake up. Coming into the last end this team of leads were one up on the score board and holding shot on the rink. However, a drive from “Whirlpool” Bob, with his last bowl moved the jack back to collect 3 shots, turning the tables to give his team victory. Well done, Bob. Hats off to skip Mike Ross on his great performance in this match. Result – Brian Jackson, Allan Margan, Frank Fielding and Bob Nathan 21 defeated Laurie Swift, Brian Brown, Peter Field and Mike Ross 19. Game 2 – Another closely contested game with Graham Crawley, Jim McGuinness, Damien Sparkes and Greg Sawtell 18 defeating John Buckley, Dave Lee, Ray Chandler and Warren Whitney 16.

Social Bowls Results – Winners on a count back were Ray Daunt, Ken Coyte and Jim Banks who sneaked in by 1 point to consign Glen Ferguson, Kev Hall and Jim Field into the runners-up possy. Great going, everyone. This week was also filled with special elbow bending exercises as 6 members celebrated birthdays. Jim Field, Gary Booth, Frank Fielding and Kev Hall were in the group together with 2 great young chaps, Jim Banks 84 years young and Des Dever 80 years young.
Happy birthday boys from yours truly.
