The Western District Bowls Division men's and women's division triples championships wrapped up on Sunday.
The men's event was taken out by a composite side - Les Johnston and Wayne Cooper from Koroit and Warrnambool's Mark Bowles. They had a convincing final, defeating Bryan Sheehan, Matt Fleming and Kev O'Keefe 20-7.
The women's winners were Sheridan Barling, Polly Rabl, Gayle Swanston over Pam Dwyer, Jean Clover and Thelma Smith 22-8.
The division over 60s pairs was won by Vince Moloney and Wayne Hall. They defeated Peter Ellis and Peter Summerhayes 23-6.
The over 60s women's event was postponed until Monday at 10am (at Timboon). Linda Creek and Jill Oswin (Port Fairy) will play Betty Nisbet and Colleen Wooles (City).
This Sunday, 32 men will contest the division state singles championship at Warrnambool, while 14 women will play at Lawn Tennis.
City Memorial has a new club men's singles champion, with Don Price defeating Gary Smart in the final.
The women's singles champion is Moria Cooknell, successful over Julie Dosser.
Koroit Bowling Club is losing a valued member, with Barry Padgham and his wife Viv preparing to leave the district and return to Melbourne.
Since arriving, Barry has contributed as a talented player, committee member.
He's also put his tradesman skills to good use, performing a lot of work around the club.
Barry has also served on committees with the WDBD and as a board member.
In division one - after the tightest of contests against City Red at City which saw a draw last weekend - Warrnambool Gold is at home Saturday, taking on top-of-the-ladder Koroit Blue in what should be the game of the round.
Division two has turned out to be a nice, close contest between most teams.
Dunkeld away at Koroit should prove to be an entertaining contest, while Warrnambool White at home should have some confidence of knocking off a strong City Blue outfit.
