Pam Shaw, receiving the trophy from Barbara Gee, previous winner and runner up

On a warm sunny day sixteen ladies contested the Halifax Bowling Club's Hanson Merit. A feature of the day was the superb performances by some of the new inexperienced ladies such as Carol Onions and Linda Robson. Pam Shaw and Janice Wright are maintaining their improvement and it was good to see Lynda Canning and Mavis Walker using their green knowledge.
The semi final featured Carol Onions and the experienced Barbara Gee and team mates Pam Shaw and Jan Wright. Carol went into a 4-0 lead before Barbara won the Jack and bowling her trade mark 20 metre round pegging marks ran out a 15-5 winner.
The game between Pam and Janice was a very close encounter with both ladies bowling a similar length. Pam took the honours by 15-14.
The final saw Barbara moving into a 10-5 advantage bowling a long pegging mark on the edge of the green. When Pam won the Jack she bowled superbly on a round finger medium length mark to run out a 15-11 winner.
An excellent day's bowling.
