Oatlands vs Bruny

Oatlands defeated Bruny 10 – 4 (79 to 62 shots)


It is many years since Bruny last played Oatlands. We had played them twice at Oatlands for a loss and a win. Oatlands forfeited back then for both return games so they haven’t as yet been to Bruny.

Bowls is supposed to be a summer sport. On Saturday we played in the coldest conditions I have experienced in over 30 years of playing the sport. It was 4 degrees, very windy with showers of rain and even some hail. The green was very good but the strong cross winds made playing Bowls a challenge for both sides.

We managed to win on two rinks but Oatlands beat us overall. Our Four of the week, winning by 4 shots was Brian, Suzi, Nola and Martin.

Chris and Jenny , Neil and Jenny, Pete and Suzi liked the cold weather so much they decided to stay at Oatlands for 3 nights in their caravans. Martin and Tracy stayed in a holiday unit. They didn’t say if they will camp there next year!
