February Open Nights Pairs

Lightning Ridge District Bowling Club last Friday and Saturday nights, hosted 24 teams in the annual Open Night Pairs Tournament.

Players from the Ridge, Walgett, Goodooga, Colly and Bollon (Queensland) made up the field in a very tight competition.

The quality of the teams was shown after the first night with only two teams being able to record three wins from three games. Several teams were on two and a half wins and quite a few on two. This trend continued again on Saturday night with some unexpected wins and losses.

Normally this tournament finishes with a playoff between two or three teams but this year saw just one team with six wins. The very good team of Cec Cubby and Kelly Anderson proved too strong against some very good opposition including Brett Pritchard and Rex Skuthorpe and were the only team to record six wins.

Two other teams recorded five and a half wins to share second and third place with one team on five wins taking fourth spot.

Results: 1st-Kelly Anderson, Cec Cubby
Equal 2nd: David Webb, Alan Tighe
Ray Shepherd, Ted Fernando (Colly)
4th: Peter Williams, P.W. Morris
