SPORT 17 Henderson claims title Carthew takes first women’s crown THE Millicent Bowling Club has new Veterans Champions for 2015. The men’s champion was decided when Herb Henderson defeated Jim Earl in the grand final last Wednesday, while the women’s championship final was played on Friday when 11 members contested the title. Life member and club president in 1986-87, Henderson has had a long and illustrious bowling career and has been the Millicent Bowling Club’s men’s singles Champion seven times, while sharing the honours as the pairs champion eight times, triples champion four times and the fours champion 13 times. For the women, Heather Carthew and Margaret Fennell met in the final decider and Carthew got away to an early start, however by end 10 Fennell was only one shot behind. The next 10 ends saw Carthew again draw away to claim the victory. Although never winning a singles title, Carthew has been part of 10 winning teams, including three time women’s pairs champion, three time women’s triples champion and four time championship fours winner. LANDMARK 2-4-2 WINNERS: Neil Whelan (left) and Ray Doecke. Competitive games despite cold THE Millicent Bowling Club hosted the Landmark 2-4-2 between a reduced number of bowlers last week. Just 24 braved the cold weather, however the games played were competitive. The Hahn Green was rested this week ahead of the preliminary finals the club is hosting this Saturday and play took place on six rinks of the Somerset Green. Winning the day were Ray Doecke and Neil Whelan with 32+21. They were followed by Colin Pye and Derk Pietersma (32+4) as runners-up, Bill Fennell and Malcolm Wright (31+4), Alan Strother and Norman Peart (30+2), Peter Hyland and John Scudds (30+1) and, finally, Brentley Thomas and Alan Correll (28+4). The club thanks all the bowlers who took part and reminds members to get teams in for next Thursday’s Hahn Cosmopolitan. Play starts at 9.30am and the club asks you supply your own lunch and afternoon tea. MEN’S VETERAN: Jim Earl (runner-up) with Herb Henderson (winner).

Red and White inseparable in Night Owls BOTH the Red and White Divisions were locked in with the same winning scores in the Millicent Bowling Club’s Night Owls Competition last week. All sides were out to get to the top of the ladder, making a final push. Even the touches competition had a rare unheard of five touches for the night, an impressive effort by Terry Chant who was playing well, as was his team Leftovers scoring an eight. A vote was taken on the night and it was decided to extend next year’s competition by two weeks with the extra weeks being in mid January after the Christmas and New Year break. Members decided the weather is close to perfect for night bowls at this time.
