28 Teams entered the 2 day event . Played over 6 games of 11 ends . perfect weather greeted the teams on both days , the greens were in magnificent order ( thanks to Luke & Chris for all the hard work they put in ).

5 wins + 5 margin from Wentworthville Brian Lemon & Brian Wildson . 5thplace with 4 wins , 1 draw + 47 margin were Shawn Chrisison & Jamie Preo .

PENNANTS RD5 SATURDAY 23RD MARCH 2019
GRADE 3 v St Georges Basin ( Away )
A great win the boys to claim the big board 59 to 53 beating the undefeated Basin side . John Slingsby’s side winning 27 to 17 helped get the result after the other scores were against us 18 to 21 & 14 to 15 . John Dallas was responsible for shot of the with his last bowl turning 2 shots down into a 3 shots up . Alto Geoff Steinhour pointed out if he trailed the jack an extra foot he would of made 5 . So don’t be short next time John .
GRADE 5 V St Georges Basin ( Home )
Again a home win eludes the grade 5 boys going down 19 to 17, 13 to 22 & 16 to 25 ( 64 to 48 ) . a hard loss to take with how close the competition is .
