Monthly Triples 9 January 2020

The club Monthly Triples, which is generously sponsored by Wonthaggi Holden, had all fourteen rinks full ensuring very strong competition, but having said that it does not distract from the camaraderie amongst all the players. Our club president Barrie Goldsbury welcomed players from San Remo, Wonthaggi, Inverloch, Leongatha as well as a number of bowlers who were holidaying on the Island. Out of the blocks early was the team led by Daryl Major who won best first game, while best game two was won by the composite team of Mick Coram from Inverloch and Wayne and Ben Mattock from Wonthaggi. After a welcome break for lunch best game three went to a visiting team led by Frank Bellino, while skip Geoff Coleman from the Inverloch club led his team to victory winning best game four. With only one four game winner on the day the team of Mick Coram with Wayne and Ben Mattock took the honors, and equally important bragging rights! Through the generosity of all the bowlers present, all the winner’s prize money and proceeds of the regular raffle, saw just over $500 donated to the CFA Bushfire relief fund, what a fabulous effort congratulations everyone.
