Umina holds inaugural two-bowl graded triples challenge

Umina Beach Bowling Club held its inaugural Two-Bowl Graded Triples Challenge on Saturday, May 29.

The overall winners were:

1. Don Stephens, Colin Mew and Peter Springett 14 points +35.

2. Paul Trigg, Geoff Collins and Shane Waddell 13 points +30.

3. Leila Gilmour, George Boni and Barry Gilmour 13 points +11.

4. Sid Stokie, Gary Yates and Mark Harrison 12 points +19.

5. Peter Heinemann, Larry Johnston and Warren Brooks 11 points +13.

Non Placed Consolation prize went to "non-placed" Upu Kila, Leo Lees and Frank Corkhill.

Club secretary Mr Peter Springett said the Bendigo Bank-sponsored event was "a revised format of previous Graded Triples competitions".

It comprised three games of two six-end sets per game.

There were 18 graded teams taking part, including men's, women's and mixed teams, competing for six money prizes. Congratulations and thankyou to everyone that took part in this inaugural competition.

Mr Springett said Colin Mew, Jim Phillips and Steve Stead were responsible for setting up and running the event.

"After the game we asked bowlers for their feedback about the new format.

"Most of the players thought that the revised format worked well."

Mr Springett said organisers were asked: "Why have two sets of six ends per game, instead of a game of 12 ends?"

He said that the changed format was in response player interest.

"The previous format was three games of 12 ends.

"Bowlers got bored with playing the same old format and wanted something different.

"Players stopped coming to play the old format.

"With two sets, a team can lose the first set (six ends), but they still have a chance of winning the second set and then possibly the one end tie break for the Win points.

"That means that a team is potentially in the game and winning the competition, right up to the end of the second set."
