Winner (L-R) Ellenor Armstrong and Diana Buchanan. Runners Up (L-R) Betty Cleveland and Marsha Phillips. Three of our bowlers, plus one from the Ex Services Club, enjoyed Young’s Cherry Festival Triples Tournament. Diana Buchanan, Freda Hambrook and Jan Roberts did well on the first day, being fourth; however, did not do so well on the second day.

Jan Slavin joined Young bowlers Margaret Gailey and Judith Mulligan and also had a good time.   Last Thursday we were finally able to conduct our Pairs Championship in a round-robin format, drawing for partners. In Round 1, Jan Slavin and Jenny Blundell were too strong on the day for Jan Roberts and Lesley Manwaring, whilst Diana Buchanan and Ellenor Armstrong won against Betty Cleveland and Marsha Phillips.

Diana Buchanan and Ellenor Armstrong continued their winning form in Round 2 with a win over Jan Roberts and Lesley Manwaring, whilst Betty Cleveland and Marsha Phillips scored a win against Jan Slavin and Jenny Blundell. Round 3 saw Betty Cleveland and Marsha Phillips take the win against Jan Roberts and Lesley Manwaring, whilst Diana Buchanan and Ellenor Armstrong made it three wins by defeating Jan Slavin and Jenny Blundell.

Everyone enjoyed the format and the day’s bowling, with two games in the morning, followed by a very social lunch together, and then the final round.   Pairs Champions for 2021 are Diana Buchanan and Ellenor Armstrong. Runners up were Betty Cleveland and Marsha Phillips. Congratulations to all bowlers; it was a great day.
