OUR NEW SINGLES CHAMPIONS FOR 2018. – Doncaster Bowling Club



14th January 2018


The contestants were Matt Cursio against Brian Salvage and Teresa Bowden against Suzanne Tyson.

Both eventual winners  got off to a flying start, but were pegged back to even points part way through their games.

Then the scores lengthened out again until the Men’s board read 25/12 with Brian the victor, and an hour later the Women’s read 25/19 with Suzanne the victor.

Especially in the ladies game there were some tight heads, with the shot bowl changing at every roll ….accompanied by claps and oohs and aahs from the spectators.

Brian Salvage has been club champion many times, this one is now his eighth.  Suzanne has transferred from Shepparton Park just this season, so it is her first win at Doncaster.

Thanks goes to the BBQ workers, the umpire, the scorers, and the markers all who must have felt the cold. I hope the weather was the reason why the spectator number was down this year….Lyn Goodman.
