Wednesday 18 October:
Today we had the usual paddle pop draw triples with a game of pairs to even out the numbers.
We also had a game in the Mens B Singles between Trevor Christensen and John Robinson.
Christo put the first points on the card going out to a 5/- lead on end 3, however as so often happens in bowls he stalled there while Robbo caught up and took the lead on end 6, 6/5.
It was then Robbo’s turn to get stuck on 6 for 4 ends while Christo went out to a 9/6 lead on end 9, then again on 8 until end 13 when the score sat at 13/8 to Christo.
The game see sawed until end 21 when Christo went to sleep on 22/14 and there he stayed until end 25 when a two saw him reach that dreadful number 24!
Two one point ends by Robbo saw the score sit on a tense 24/22 before Christo scored a 1 on end 27 to take the match 25/22.
A game worthy of being a final with some amazing bowls played by both men.
Special thanks to Rob Anderson who filled the duel roles of marker and Umpire for the day.

Our Ladies sent a representative team to play in the district Trophy Shield competition in Bundaberg.
The concept of the day was a team of fours, a team of pairs and a singles player.
The first round was against Bundaberg playing at Burnett in a roaring wind with a short sharp shower thrown in for good measure.
Woodgate emerged victorious with a fabulous win by singles player Meredith Taylor, a win in the fours, Jane Herd-Evans, Linda Hannah, Fiona Dowling and Donna Smith, and a slender loss by the last bowl rolled to pairs players Lesley Christensen and Gail Lenz.
The afternoon’s competition saw the bruised and battered Woodgate girls front up against a fresh Burnett (having had a by in the first round) team on the back green where the wind was even stronger and more gusty than in the morning!
No hats stayed on around there let me assure you!
Meredith again showed what a true champion she is with a very hard fought win in the singles, but unfortunately the other two teams did not get the same result.
Thursday 19 October:
Today we had our usual Jackpot triples with a couple of competition games to enjoy.
Garry Willoughby played Paul Rogerson in a B singles game with Garry coming away with the win. Thanks to Ken Geaney for marking.
Team Byrnes played Team Bishop in the mixed fours with Team Byrnes taking the win.
