Kent Price (skip) and Craig Donaldson have taken out the 2017 Park Beach Major Pairs Championship after an enthralling contest against Rod Farmer and Rick Southam. After a slow start, Farmer and Southam rallied, and for most of the game there was little more than a shot or two between two teams with an armoury of shots for every occasion. At the end of the game, the scores were locked at 21-21, and an extra end was played. Craig Donaldson took the mat, and his first bowl was a wresting toucher. Rod Farmer replied by moving the jack, but it went to his opponents bowls, and Rod and Rick were unable to draw a shot, and Price and Donaldson won 22-21. It was a great game to watch, and there was a good crowd on hand to enjoy a quality game of bowls.
