2017 Major Pairs Champions

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.
