Strong rink's progress in PG tournament

WITH the postponement of both Merthyr Guest Memorial games last weekend, the Penarth Bowling Club report is restricted to an update on the president's holiday in San Francisco and Hawaii, together with the small matter of two overwhelming victories.
Firstly, the Munro Cup side totally dismantled visitors Rhoose by an amazing 64 shots (109-45). With three rinks rattling up convincing wins, Penarth took 12 points from the home encounter. The most successful rink was skipped by Colin Grant (39-5) and he was ably assisted by Berwyn Lansley, Rob Grant and Haydn Trow. They were in total control from start to finish.
Also posting an impressive 30-8 win was the Gareth Rosser, Dick Edwards, Colin Hicks and Bob Lewis rink.
Bob Hill, now fully recovered from his gardening exploits, secured another good 28-13 win, with Terry Buckingham, Don Shirley and Guy Thomas providing excellent support. Sadly, captain Phil, Reg, Ron and Clive failed to make it a whitewash, going down 12-19. Shame!
On Friday a very strong rink - skip Clive Fry, captain Phil, Rob and Colin Grant - travelled to Cardiff Sophia Gardens to compete in the Private Greens single rink tourney and the selection proved spot on as Cardiff were destroyed and retired well beaten after only 16 of the 21 ends. The score at that stage was 21-6, with Penarth dominating and looking forward to their next game against either Llanbradach or Whitchurch.
To conclude a briefer than usual round up, it can be confirmed that Nick and Liz Chandler are thoroughly enjoying the delights of their extended holiday in San Francisco and Hawaii. Kauaii is a stunning island.
