Ladies Singles Final
Congratulations Heather Hayes and Runner Up Joy Curtis
On a beautiful sunny morning with little wind the above Final was played before an appreciative audience of around 30 members on Green 1 on Friday 4th December 2020.
The game between Heather Hayes who won the event the previous year & Joy Curtis
began at 10 a.m. It was obvious from the start that there was little difference between the two ladies & the game ebbed & flowed for the first 15 ends with the score 10 all at this juncture.
After 20 ends the score was 21 all & you could hear a pin drop with the tension surrounding the event. Heather then edged ahead by 3 shots & after 27 ends led 24/21.
On the next end Heather put in a very long end & was holding 3 shots when Joy played an unbelievable forehand shot to draw right on the jack & save the game.
Joy then won the next end & the score line was 24/23.
On the 30th & Final end the players took it in turn to hold shot before Heather with her last bowl managed to draw next to the jack & win the game.
Paula Pumpa did a great job as marker & John Trewin made the presentation of prizes to the two lady combatants. Thanks is extended to both Paula & John for their service.
To sum up it was a great game played in ideal conditions before interested members.
Both Heather & Joy are to be commended for the style & gracious spirit in which they played the game , one which will stay in the memory banks for a long time.
