Spring has sprung and Tannymorel Bowls Club celebrated with the first round of the 2019 Spring Tanny Classic.
36 players rolled up for the first round – a great response.
Opening their account with a win were Maddy Grayson, Lochy Boal and Stu Hoffman. I understand that the judiciary will be looking at Stu’s handicapping going forward and there are rumours that special playing conditions may be enforced. (Playing left handed and bowling with the wrong bias are some of the conditions that may have been considered.). Seems Stu Hoffman is a marked man after he and his cohorts scored a 17 – 7 win over Cody Muller, Ash Coleman and Clayton Frank.
In other games Steph Shelley, Joe McIvor and Mick Weier had a narrow 7-6 win over Maddy Weier, Hamish Hoffman and Thomo.
Fraser Grayson, Paul Braithwaite and Fritzy defeated Damo Boal, Rooster Hausfield and Bretto 7-5. Another close game.
Ben Gross, Jacko Grayson and Jessie Wallace scored a 12-4 win over Nick Lane, Brodie Weier and Coire Burmester.
In a nail biter Mitch Muller, Rob Price and Pete Brosnan played a seven all draw against Lochy Fritz, Roger Welsh and Glen Boal.
At the end of round one heading the leader board with five points are Maddy Grayson, Lochy Boal and Stu Hoffman.
On four points are Ben Gross, Jack Grayson and Jessie followed by Fraser, Paul, Fritzy, Steph, Joe and Mick with three points.
Following the bowls the troops played a pool competition and it was Paul, Hamish and Pricey who cleaned up.
Once again there was plenty of fun laughter and heckling on the green and around the pool table. If you haven’t been to Tanny on a Friday night you are missing something special.
It all happens again this Friday night with Round Two of the Tanny Classic. Remember to get your name in by 6.30 pm Friday.
