Only 10 bowlers enjoyed near-perfect conditions last Wednesday for three games of social bowls.

At the end of the day no team had won the three games.

On the points system the winners were Smokey Dawson (s), Alan Perry and Peter Cunningham (2 wins, 33 points, +8 shots).

Runners-up were Chris Cail (s) and Dave Coote (2 wins, 29 points, +2 shots).

The jackpot was not won and will be $165 today.

The club’s women hosted their annual tournament on Thursday, February 20.

Sponsored by Mulqueen Family Funerals, the event was contested over three games of 10 ends.

Sixteen teams played, including visiting teams and players from Golden Square, South Bendigo, Woodbury, White Hills, Harcourt, Bendigo Golf, Bendigo and Strathfieldsaye.

The winner was a Heathcote team (three wins) comprising Ilona Hutterer (s), Alan Perry and John Hutson.
