The final of the State Open Triples at District level was played on Wednesday 18 July on a very fast green at Forestville RSL Bowling Club, with Margaret Murphy, Daphne Menzies & Billie Maas (Belrose) defeating Dawn Spinks, Brenda Walker & Gill Barton (Neutral Bay) 22-11.
The Neutral Bay trio of Elizabeth Blackwell, Jenny Palmer and Jenny Hepburn became North Shore’s first “back-to-back Champions”, winning the Open Triples in 2017. They defeated Betty-Anne Cleveland, Trish Tamaoki and Judy Moyes of Mosman in a hard-fought final.
The final of the 2016 Triples was played on Wed 13 July at Neutral Bay in a bitingly cold gale. The Belrose team of Daphne Menzies, Jan Johnson and Lyn Needs had the measure of the conditions early, but the Neutral Bay team of Elizabeth Blackwell, Jenny Hepburn and Jenny Palmer tightened their game and pulled away to claim the game.
