ON Thursday, January 18, whilst most
were cooling off with the air conditioner
on, Angela Barrand and Glad Atkinson
were travelling up the highway to Ma-
ffra to compete in the North Gippsland
Bowls Division Ladies Pairs.
The early 8.30am start was to no avail as they
were beaten by their Heyfield opponents.
However, as Angela and Glad would acknowl-
edge it is not all about winning but participating.
Well done girls for the effort.
Midweek Pennant has taken on a new di-
mension with both the Yarram teams being first
and second on the ladder; this week it is Yarram

Gold took on the Heyfield team, losing one rink
but winning overall.
Yarram Gold 7-45 to Heyfield 2-29.
This Tuesday Yarram Green play Sale at Yar-
ram and Yarram Gold play away against West

Singles Championship has been de-
cided with Geoff May successfully de-
fending his title after beating ten times
champion John Millier in the semi final,
and Jeff Amos in the grand final.
The semi final was a marathon affair which
lasted three hours over 32 ends before Geoff
was able to close the game out 25/21.
This set up an intriguing grand final against
the two pennant teammates.
As the game progressed, Geoff was able to
pick up multiple score ends to run out the win-
The sportsmanship by both players is to be
Geoff now goes onto to represent the Yarram
Bowls Club in the North Gippsland Regional

With two games remaining the final placings
may not be known until all results are in after
completion of the home and away season.
Division 2 hosted Heyfield in what can be
called a reversal of form throughout the day.
The rink of Pat Kiely, Wendy Helms, Doug
Humphrey and Ian Perry were down 1/7 after six
ends then won the next eight ends to lead 16/8 at
After tea was taken the wheels fell off with
Yarram losing this rink 20/25 only winning four
of the last 11ends.
The rink of Greg Garland, Peter Powney,
Chris Banik and Ken Brown hung in there all day
whilst never in front managed to draw this game
on the last end 21/21.

THE T20 final was played
at Toora last Sunday with
Tarraville taking on Bing-
inwarri once again.
At the start of this season,
clubs agreed to donate their
prize money to the Tanner Fam-
Gate money, raffles and
donations were bundled to-
gether to assist Craig’s son with
the cost of cancer treatment.
Tarraville won the toss and
batted first but it was a shaky
start with Barlow snapping up
three catches with Quigley, Jo-
seph and Bland out with 42 on
Jarod James then set about
belting the bowling all around
the Toora oval and his 45 not
out was the right medicine.
James and Hyland added
38 for the seventh wicket as
Tarraville went on to compile
Tarraville’s bowling effort
began with controversy as first
runs were 12 wides and bowl-
ers from both ends had trouble
handling the northeast gale
wind and keeping the ball in the
Mark Joseph took the first
three wickets and at 3/89 Bingi
looked home and hosed how-
ever they lost 3/0 and suddenly
shivers ran through the Bingi
Lyndon Dyson was given
out obstructing the field then
three run outs , one by by Mark
Joseph and two by Jarod James
claimed the wickets of East,
Thomas and McDonald with
Bingi all out for 112 still 15
runs in arrears.
Thanks to umpires Gavin
Watt and John Collins for a
sterling job and both may need
a hot bath after signalling 34
wides for the game.
Thanks also to the Toora
Cricket Club for putting on the
day and the use of their facilities
and hopefully the Tanner fam-
ily will benefit from the day.
A raffle was held on the day
with some great prizes on offer;
first was two night’s accommo-
dation at Marlo won by Sarah
Coles. Second was one night
accommodation at Lakes RSL
won by Don Borgia and the
third was a selection of fishing
gear won by Val Young.
Playoff: Jeff Amos, left, and Geoff May played off for the Yarram Bowls Club singles title
on the weekend with Geoff May able to successfully defend the title he won last season.
