NATHAN Wise, Sam Pryor and Allan Wise remained unbeaten to win the West Tamworth Sports and Bowling Club’s City of Light Triples yesterday.
The Gunnedah trio had four wins from their four matches to be the only unbeaten trio at the annual two-day carnival at the Belmore Street venue, organiser Bob Hennessey said.
“Every team played two games each day, morning and afternoon of 21 ends,” Hennessey said.
“We had 20 teams for big prizemoney.”
Sponsored by Northern Inland Credit Union, JT Fossey and Tooheys, the City of Light went off well, he said.
“We had two good days,” he said. “The weather held out for us and the greens were magnificent.
“We also had good representation from most of the local clubs.”
They even had one player fly in from Cairns – Gordonvale Bowling Club’s Michael Greenwood.
The Gunnedah team finished with four wins and a +52 to beat the Walcha trio of Brian Goodwin, Noel Goodwin and John Andrews (3w +49) while the composite side of Jamie Gardner, John Owen and Peter Kachel was third with three wins and a +24. Murray Fokes, Paul D’Elboux and Craig Sheppeard were fourth with three wins and a +20.
While Hennessey had no luck, he is heading out to Narrabri tomorrow for a special remambrance day for the late Maurice Gleeson.
“Maurie was the president of the Narrabri Bowling Club as well as the Zone Delegate to the CNDBA.
“He was well-liked and respected and did a lot for the CNDBA.
“They are having a remembrance day for him with proceeds going to charity.”
