Well technically we were always going to have a winner but this is a major achievement for the club – to have a regional winner but to also have a runner up as well. The game was for the Ladies Over 60 Pairs Championship. Winning one of these titles is never easy.
There had to be one winner and Julie Holton and Elizabeth Kierce (City Oval) – the sisters – won a very tight game over Lyn Bryce and Helen Stenning (Victoria). 12 shots to 9 over 15 ends. By all reports it was a great game under the dome at Sebastopol with some great bowls played.
Congratulations to Julie Holton and Lyn Bryce for representing the club with such distinction. Hopefully this will encourage more BMS bowlers to enter these district events which are a great learning experience and a chance to go on a play in state finals.
