This year there was a revamp to the major and minor pairs competition at Bowral Bowling Club.

Normally two players are drawn to play together for all matches each one consisting of 18 ends.

To spice things up, players were divided into two groups, Skips (majors) and Leads (Minors).

After the draw, everyone would rotate after each set of 9 ends to play with six different partners.

Over the three days of competition, both leads and skips kept their individual score. Winners were decided on wins first then margins and if needed, ends won.

This year, Gail Fraser won the Rotating Major with five wins, a margin of 26 and 31 ends. Sylvia Handley came second with 5 wins, 21 margin and 31 ends. Margaret Pemberton won the Rotating Minors with five wins, 17 margin and 27 ends.

Ervy Richetti was the runner-up with 4 wins, a margin of 20 and 30 ends. Call Bowral Bowling Club on 4861 1320 for more information about women’s bowls.
