Janet Monk Wins George Hawkins Over 60s Trophy
It was sunshine all the way at Mooragh Park and a good entry of 40 bowlers made the most of the
good weather to play in this mixed singles competition.
Some great bowling led to the quarter finals with the closest game between Peter Oates and Dave
McCabe which finished 21/20. Closely followed by Elaine Moore and John Corteen 21/16.
The other quarter finalists were Janet Monk against Philip Cannan and Steve Parker against John
Kneen. Both games finished 21/8.
In the semi-final Janet was against Steve and took an early lead in a game that saw some excellent
bowling from both players finishing 21/10.
Elaine and Peter had a closer game and after 19 ends the score was 17/15, but Elaine won the next 4
ends and finished the game 21/15.
A thrilling all girl final followed, and it was predictably a very close game. Janet took an early lead,
but Elaine fought back and after 17 ends just one point separated them, but Janet managed to keep
hold of the jack winning the next 5 ends to claim her win 21/14.
The presentations and prize money were made by George Hawkins family who had been watching
the competition from the start. North Ramsey Bowling Club and Janet expressed their thanks to all
of Georges family for their continuing support and Janet thanked everyone within the club who had
made the day such a success.
