THE Easter Triples was a great success with 48 bowlers vying for the prize money.
There was some concern when three teams withdrew their entries, but after a few phone calls and quite a lot of effort from our match committee, three teams were found.
Saturday all teams played for grading into four divisions A, B, C, and D for the main event on Sunday.
Division A had first and second prize money and the winners were Paul Cockram, Rocky Ford and Rod Pickles Bradley - three wins +13, with Matt, Greg Gibbson and Bill Robertson from Temora claiming second place.
Division B Terry Smith, Geoff Bloopy Manwaring and Pat O'Brien collected the prize money with three wins +29. Winners of division C were Kye Fisher, Don Duck O'Neill and Terry McDonald with two wins +9, while Jason Jones, Charlie Willis and Jim White claimed division D with three wins +21.
