Lower Murray past presidents too strong for Lower North
Close wins in Mid North
Men's grand finals
Will takes Singles title
second year in a row
THE Lower Murray Branch of the Bowls Past
President's Association proved too strong for
Lower North when they played their annual match
at Lyndoch recently.
Played on excellent greens, 80 players enjoyed
the hospitality of the Lyndoch Club in ideal bowls
weather. The fact that four state executive players
were intermingled in the Lower Murray teams
may have had some bearing on Lower Murray
winning 211 to 129, and retaining the Red River
Most successful team for Lower North was the
team of Don Bessell (Nuriootpa), Geoff Redden
(Kapunda), and Angelo Pavan, and Kel Prescott,
(both of Two Wells).
The Bowls Past President's season will con-
clude with the State Carnival in Adelaide on May
6, 7, 9 and 10, 2013. Cosmopolitan teams of four
players of any gender may enter. Entry forms are
in the latest issue of "News & Views".
