Sixteen souls gathered on the green on the morning of June 21 to participate in the annual pairs tournament. The format again this year was a ranked draw wherein bowlers chose their position and the random draw was then held to permanently pair bowlers for the day.
After three twelve end games, two teams had won all three games. Those two, skip Phil Grattan with lead Harry Gans and skip Frankie Napoli with lead Wilfred Wong, met in a single-game final on the 23rd.
The game started at 2:30 in a light mist. The teams decided to play 14 ends which they all agreed had been Gary’s revised plan (rather than 18). Frankie and Wilford wore whites. Phil and Harry opted to be more casual. Perhaps the green appreciated the nod to tradition. Team Frankie and Wilfred won the game, 15 to 11. All four players made some great shots. John Hooper and Ann Gardiner showed up to watch the game, so there was a crowd of two in the cheering section.
Congratulations Frankie and Wilfred!!!
