Bowlers have played two weeks of pennant, with some interesting results in both Western District Playing Area pennant competitions.
In division one of midweek pennant, the top two teams, Koroit Orange and City Sapphires, will meet in the next round. Undefeated Timboon Maroon will play Terang Gold, which had a good win last week against City Diamonds. Lawn Green sits on top in division two, and will play Timboon Gold at City Memorial. Terang Red and City Emeralds, first and second in division three, will face each other next round, while in division four, Terang Green and City Jade have won their first two matches.
In division one of weekend pennant, Terang Green and Mortlake Blue sides played a close match, with a one shot win to Mortlake. Dunkeld Blue will host City Red this week and City Gold play Timboon Gold at home. Both should prove interesting match-ups. In division two, the top two sides, Dennington Mariners and City White, will meet at Dennington.
Last week, Lawn Gold and Port Fairy Gold had a close tussle in division three, with the home team taking out the honours by two shots. City Black took out full points against City Orange and meets Timboon Brown at home this week. In division five, the closest match of the round could be between Warrnambool Maroon and Timboon Purple.
The first of our state events got under way last weekend. With dismal weather, the men's triples was transferred to City. The event will conclude at City on Sunday. The women's triples finals at Mortlake on Sunday will see Barbara Bibby's team play Gill Pudney's team, and in the other semi-final, Jean Clover's team against the Dennington team, skippered by Sheridan Barling.
The over 60 pairs ran on Monday. With a great number of entries, and sectional play required, the men's section, was relocated to City. The women played in four sections at Terang. Knockout finals will conclude next Monday. Players are asked to write their National ID number on the club entry forms beside their full names. Draws are being done on Bowlslink this season, as a lead up to next season, when all entries will be done by individual players rather than clubs. Payments for entries to state events are to be made to your clubs, who will be billed by the region in the New Year.
A reminder that under the WDPA conditions of play for state events, players are expected to wear their current club pennant uniform, but a composite team may choose to wear alternative apparel, provided it adheres to Bowls Victoria Regulations for attire policy and is approved the match committee. With the cooler conditions of late, some players have been wearing non-BA approved clothing for pennant and state events.
Please adhere to the Bowls Victoria regulations of attire, or you will be asked to change clothing.
