Bowls tournament

(from page 8)

After leading the pack into the last game Mal Pearson could only manage a draw and Henry Butler was soundly defeated. This left Terry McDonald from Cootamundra the winner with 5 wins plus 54.  

Terry is a former local and has supported the Crookwell tournament for many years; Second was Mal Pearson with 4 ½ wins plus 54; Third was Ken Haynes, Peter Hammond, Brad Cartwright from Crookwell with 4 ½ wins plus 31; fourth was Henry Butler from Tomakin with 4 wins plus 15; fifth was Bob New from Cootamundra with 3 ½ wins plus 30.  

The five game winners with the biggest margins outside of the placegetters who still received prize money were Mike Gray (Goulburn), Glen Elliott (Taralga), Ross Pfeiffer (Temora), Robbie Coulstock (Goulburn) and the local team of Barney and Squids Dunn and Mick Webster.

After the bowls on Saturday the very popular and hard fought driving competition was held. Six spectacular rounds later only two bowlers remained and in a sudden death shootout with Brett Neville (Queanbeyan) defeating Joe Gray (Goulburn) to take the prize money on offer.

All bowlers commented on the quality of the hospitality and greens over the weekend. Thank you to all that helped in any way over the two days and prior.

The Crookwell Services Men’s Bowling Club acknowledges the support of local business houses that sponsor this tournament. With over one hundred visitors for the weekend and some of them staying for three nights it is a great boost to the town’s economy.

The business houses that came on board for this tournament where   Crookwell Shearing Contractors (Steve Boothman), Peter and Lois Banfield, Haynes Shearing, Wiley Reeves, Crookwell Tyre Service and the Crookwell Services Club. These companies and individuals have been long supporters of this tournament. Without this support the Classic Triples would not attract the quality of bowler’s and diverse range of areas that come to Crookwell for our annual tournament.

Community briefing on carp control

South East NSW residents are invited to attend a community briefing session hosted by the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP) and South East Local Land Services on Monday December 18 from 6.00-8.00pm.

The community briefing session will be held at the Goulburn Soldiers Club and will provide participants an opportunity to hear first-hand from the NCCP and Local Land Services and to contribute feedback to the plan.

The NCCP is investigating ways to control carp centered on the use of a species-specific virus known as Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (the carp virus) as a biocontrol agent.
