June Competition

Our June competition was a little down on numbers which only allowed us to have two divisions for the day. The winner of Division 1 was J Edwards with 38 points followed by C Goodwin and L Fredericks on 37 points. Division 2 was won by B Weir with 40 points followed by R Pearson with 39 points and L Fuller with 38 points. Our next monthly event is scheduled for Monday 7th July.

Round 3 of the competition was held at Jamberoo on Thursday 12th June and what a great result for Jamberoo. We managed to repeat our good result from last round and again filled the top two positions with Pat Paris winning the day with 37 points on a countback from Karl Edlinger. There were also good performances from Ray Orr and Eddie Klein who both had 34 points. As a result, Jamberoo won the day with 200 points followed by Port Kembla with 192 points and The Grange with 186 points.

This terrific result from the team means that we have leapfrogged over Port Kembla into the No 1 position. The next round is at Port Kembla in August so we will need to be at our best to hold off Port from retaking the lead. Also, special thanks to Lance Fredericks, Robyn Gregson and Stuart Potter for arranging the catering and cooking the BBQ on the day. Without the help of these guys the day would not have been the success that it was.
The progressive point score is:

Jamberoo 592
Port Kembla 589
The Grange 557
Kiama 542
The Links 538
Wollongong 512
Russel Vale 501
