Congratulations to the Neutral Bay team of Elizabeth Blackwell, Jenny Hepburn and Jenny Palmer who prevailed in blustery, frigid conditions at Neutral Bay on 12 May 2016.
A bitingly cold gale blew throughout the morning, only to moderate in the afternoon, when the match had concluded! Spectators, bundled up in layers of clothing, were amazed at the fine bowls put down by all players, despite the challenging conditions.
The Belrose team of Daphne Menzies, Jan Johnson and Lyn Needs had the measure of the conditions in the early part of the game, but relinquished their lead as the wind turned to a gale and the Neutral Bay team tightened their game with the second, Jenny Hepburn, making all three of her bowls count on at least one occasion. While the Belrose team was never out of contention, in the end the Neutral Bay team pulled off the big shots when needed to claim the game 21-11.
