A run of wins continued at Severalls Jubilee Bowls Club this month, with a league match against Westlands Bowls Club resulting in a win for the home side of 80 shots to 59, giving SJBC another 14 points in the bowling league table. On Sunday August 11th, players at SJBC took part in the annual Australian Pairs Competition. Each pair played four matches of four ends with the final match of five ends, making a total of 21 ends played. Bowling was good spirited and competitive and not even the looming storm clouds, rain and thunder dampened the bowlers enthusiasm. The winning pair were Christine Rawe and Adrian Taylor. Runners up, Lesley McLaren and Bob Partridge and in third place Ann Brolly and Roy Devney.
