Saturday Pennants:

Div 1 played at home vs Victor Harbor and was defeated overall 53/64. Two teams scored wins, J. Gamble 18/12 and P. Cullen 23/19 earning the side four points. I. McLeod's team lost 12/33.

Div 2 was defeated in an away game vs Strathalbyn Red. A win by D. Wright's team 21/20 and a draw by D. Gifford's team 16/16 earned the side three points. C. Jones' team went down 30/10.

Div 3 was the most successful side of the day, winning their home game vs Goolwa 51/41. With wins by all 3 teams, 12 points were added to the side's ladder. B. Trowbridge 13/12, B. Day 22/18. R. Jacquier 16/11.

Div 4 lost its home game vs Encounter Bay 42/54. The teams' close results indicate good competitive games. L. Fox 15/17, N. Thomas 12/21, M. McBride 15/16. This side is poised to achieve points next week.

Div 5 Port Elliot was beaten on Clarendon's home ground 42/70. 2 points were earned by D. Price's team 20/14. T. Gunnell 12/27 and D. Ellis 29/10.

Teams are starting to gel and almost certainly there will be celebration in the clubroom after next Saturday's game.

Thursday pennants players were disappointed. The day dawned bleak and storm clouds gathered.

BOM forecast a day with a great deal of rain, possibly hail, thunder and lighting. Nevertheless players travelled near and far keen to play the game and earn points for their club.

Div 1 welcomed Victor Harbor to PEBC and were quickly out on the green hoping to get the game played before the inclement weather set in. It was not to be - on the first end, thunder rolled and lightning flashed and players were called in, and as per rules waited for one hour for improved weather conditions. With no improvement at that time, play was abandoned and no score recorded for this week.

Div 2 was at Victor Harbor, and not surprisingly conditions were very similar. After 1.5 hours play, during which there had been two stoppages, most rinks had only played 5 ends, but with a minimum 39 ends required play was called off. Again, no score recorded.

Div 3 travelled to Langhorne Creek enjoying a lovely country drive (rumour has it they missed a turn and included Wellington in the tour), but no game and no score.

Port Elliot Bowling Club enjoys Friday night teas commencing from 5.30pm. Anyone wishing to enjoy the extensive menu is welcome, and a list of names is required in these COVID Safe times. The list is in the glass cabinet outside the club house - put your name down by Friday afternoon.

The week started with a successful Ladies Skin's Day on Monday, sponsored by Specsavers. Big money winners were the rinks of Marilyn Gerlach from Hawthorn, Jan Lind (PE) and Pam Bakker (EB).

In Tuesday's Crack the Jack pairs sponsored by Tyrepower, the team of Heather Briggs and Dan Hassell was the only 3-game winner. Second place went to Eileen and Danny Wreford, with Pam and Ian Brown third. The best 2-game winners were Ebba Ness and Fred Kelly, and last game winners were Jan Pippos and Ghyslain Dellaert.

Unfortunately, Thursday women's pennant was a no result for all Victor teams due to the unsafe conditions created by the weather.

Incredibly, the Bridgestone Super Triples did start in the afternoon and, although the weather was threatening, bowlers were never forced from the green. Sponsored by My Hearing, the clear winners were Ian Fuller, Tony Forshaw and Graham Houston.

Second place went to the Rags to Riches trio of Bill Nash, Peter O'Sullivan and Brenton Speed, with Peter Barclay, John Florance and Mike Schumann finishing third. WOL went to Fred Kelly, Ron Pope and John McNamara.

The final of the Championship Men's Fours was conducted on Friday afternoon. In a fairly tight contest, Bob Vowles, Brenton Speed, Ken Waller and Ken Mableson were able to hold off last year's winning team of John Purvis, Graham Wilson, Brendan Hehir and Bill Nash.

The Sea Eagles had a successful day in Saturday pennant with 5 of the 7 teams having a win.

Div 1 played away to PE on their difficult top green and were pleased to take the points, due to a 21 shot win by Ken Mableson's rink covering the narrow losses in the other two rinks.

Div 2 Blue was at home to EB and scored a maximum 12 points with wins to all 3 rinks. Div 2 White suffered its first loss playing away to Goolwa despite 'Birthday boy' Max Davies' rink 11 shots up.

Div 3 travelled to EB and was unsuccessful with Ian Brown and Lofty Glatz getting close.

Div 4 played Langhorne Creek away and scored 10 points with an excellent win to Craig Jacobs and a 3 shot win to Leith Davies.

Div 5 was at home to Yankalilla and achieved the maximum 12 points with good wins to all rinks.

Div 6 was ecstatic in breaking through for their first win at home to Aldinga. Chris Sutton had an 18 shot win.

Friday Night teas are going well so book early.
