Narromine sport results – March 14
Round 2 of pennants for our troops provided some excellent results. In Grade 3 we defeated Baradine at home on Saturday winning two of the three rinks comfortably, whilst Sunday at Parkes all three rinks were successful in the Grade 5 contest. This coming weekend our Grade 3 team travel to Nyngan, where a solid win would put them in the box seat, but anything else may see them back in the pack and having to start again.
For our Grade 5 boys this Sunday, the game at home could well be the most important game of the year, depending on last weekends other match result, but suffice to say anything less than a win on the master board could have dire consequences. The teams for both grades are unchanged and we wish both squads happy hunting.
Meanwhile at home we had a few matches playedi n the consistency singles which resulted in Phil harding defeating Geoff Bohm, Adam Jermyn proved a tad too good for Dale McCafferty, Aaron Clark had a good win over Danny Carnevale, and then doubled up to produce a win over Adam Jermyn in a second round encounter.
Eddie McPhee defeated Codey Anning on Sunday morning to round out the weekends championship matches, which just leaves us with James Daley to play Glenn Miller at some stage of this coming week and we should be able to continue this event to its final stages before Easter.
Social bowls this week saw Robert Bateman, Michael Baldwin and Tery McDonald claim the lions share of the loot on offer on Thursday, with Des Lincoln and Steve Buttsworth having to settle for the runners up cheque. Sunday morning saw Robert Bateman make it a nice double for the week when he teamed up with Clifton Harris to get all the chocolates available
The women kicked off their season last Tuesday and hopefully i will be able to report results and whats happening in their arena as the season unfolds, hopefully there will be plenty of players and lots of action to report.
Well thats it for me, currently doing it turf in not sunny Queensland.

Cool weather attracts good field
On Saturday last, the cooler weather attracted a good field of 24 golfers for the weekly Gerries nine hole golf competition. As usual the Royal Narromine course was in excellent condition with some very good scores recorded on the day.
In the ladies division, there were nine players and the winner with 21 points was Viv Halbisch. Runner up was Bev Woods on 20 points and she defeated Vicki Gainsford also on 20 points on a countback. After last weeks big jackpot win there was no winner in the ladies NTP and it now starts a new jackpot. Well done to the ladies who played very well.
Fifteen men faced the starter for their event and once again competition was very keen. Mal McIntyre led the way with a great round of 25 points. Runner up was Brian Masling on 23 stableford points. NTP for the men went to Chris Harding who was celebrating his birthday. Many happy returns "Pom "Hope you were able to make the Chinese meal on Saturday night. The overall winner of the NAGA trophy was Maida O'Mally. Pretty good for a " Young " Lady.
Following the presentations, attention turned to the Pool table where Chris Harding and Mal Richardson took on Tiger Berryman and Terry Willis. After a close battle Pom and Mal advanced to the final against Ross King and the always late Norm Lewis. After being in a winning position, Lewis went in off the black to give victory to Pom and Mal. It is rumoured Lewis deliberately played the shot to allow Pom to win a trophy on his birthday.
Next week will be the second last Saturday comp for the summer season with the ladies on the back nine and the men on the front at the usual hit off time of 9am.
The last Saturday morning competition for the Gerries will be Saturday 24th March. They will then start the Wednesday afternoon winter competition on the March 28. The Ladies will start their 18 hole winter competition also on Wednesday morning, while the men will play in the afternoon.
The next Veterans Open will be at Binnaway on Tuesday, March 20.
