Summer finals roundup

Martin Grier picked up the Summer singles trophy with a comfortable 21.12 win over Paul Hallett. The crunch came with Grier leading 15.11 but he was three shots down on the next end before drawing shot with his last wood to keep the advantage.

Grier teamed up with Margaret Pestelle to take the Pairs title with a runaway win over Barbara Jenkins and Hugh Rees.

The Rookies final was fiercely contested by Les Heath and Martin Waters, it was 6.6 early on Heath then shot 14.6 ahead but had to fend off a fight back from Waters before taking the title.

It will be a sad start to the winter season for the Club as they will miss the presence of probably the most well known bowler in Dorset, Max Dare. Max has played more than a hundred times for Dorset but has sadly been struck down with Motor Neurone disease as just 59 years of age.
