Open pairs champions Lyn Proudlock (L) and Margaret Darby at the Bowling Club.

Lyn Proudlock and Margaret Darby have claimed the open pairs championship at the Brunswick Heads Womens Bowling Club after beating Kerry Dexter and Lorraine McCormick 19–17 in the final.

It was an extremely close game as Margaret and Lyn were leading by four on the last end, but Kerry and Lorraine were also holding four shots.

It looked like a draw that would force a deciding end until Lyn used her last bowl to take out two of the scoring bowls giving her team a two-shot win.

The win gave Lyn her first championship at the Club.

In a semifinal for the Club’s triples championships Rosa Kinnear, Kerry Dexter and Lorraine beat Jenny Andrew, Marcia Crichton and Lyn Proudlock 22–15.
