“It was a good weekend for us,” South Tamworth Bowling Club bowls organiser Phil Johnson said.
“And it was a great weekend for Nev. He did the double.”
He pocketed $300 on Sunday, with the triples winners sharing $900 of the $2700 on offer.
“It’s good timing for Nev too. He’s in the 4’s team with Terry, Nick and Chris going to Soldier’s Point to play in the State 4’s next Saturday and Sunday.
“It was a good preparation for all four of them.
“We’d just like to wish them all the best over there.
“Peter Challinor, who is subbing for Les Goodchild, and Laurie Assef are playing in the Senior Pairs over there and Nick (Golledge) is also playing in the State Singles over there next Friday.
“We wish them all the best.”
