SATURDAY AFTERNOON LEAGUE

Well the Saturday league has come to a close and fun was had by all. Congratulations to ours winners:

1st      Bud M & Garry D
2nd     Hilda V & Jennie M
3 rd      Bev C & Hal G

Update:

Sixteen bowlers gathered Saturday at 1:00 pm to begin our 6 week Saturday League.  The wind tried hard to blow us away and the droplets of rain tried to discourage us, but to no avail. We persevered and we had a great time.

We were four rinks of pairs with social distancing and “Covid protocol” in place. We’re playing 10 end games of three bowl pairs.  Scores will be recorded as win/loss, plus/ minus and we’ll see who our ‘’champions” are in about seven weeks (we are taking the long weekend off).

I won’t be the least bit surprised if some of us will find it tough to get back to Saturday Provincial tournaments after a season of fun club competitions!!!

Provincial Team Play

So I am a little late on the draw on this but……

In the 2019 Provincial Pairs play down hosted at Mayfair.  Our teams (7 pairs teams represented Mayfair!!) saw tough competition.  16 men’s teams and 10 ladies teams battled it out to see who would represent Saskatchewan at the Major’s in Burlington in August.  Congratulations to Sydney and Lorraine on their BRONZE medal!

The four’s play down was hosted in Regina and saw 5 men’s teams and 4 women’s teams also fighting to make it to Burlington in August.  Doug Propp, and his Regina teammates Mark, Pat and Kevin fought hard and came home with the bronze.  Well played gentlemen.   Also on the men’s side Charlie and Mason, along with their teammates Bryon and Jordan from Regina won the A-side and then went on to win the tournament undefeated!! Congratulations on your GOLD medal gentlemen!!

On the ladies side we had our two teams representing Mayfair playing off for the GOLD medal, and the right to represent Saskatchewan in August.  Our teams consisted of Lorraine and her teammates Anne from Nutana, as well as Liz and Kim from Moose Jaw.  These ladies worked hard and were the A-side finalists, beating out some tough competition along the way.  Our second team representing Mayfair consisted of Sydney and her Regina teammates Janice, Janet and Karen.  In the 9:00am gold medal match Sydney and her teammates came out ahead and forced a second game to determine the provincial champion.  In a tight second game, Lorraine and her teammates came out on top to win the GOLD medal and will be representing Saskatchewan in August! Congratulations ladies!!  Saskatchewan was also allotted the B-team in the ladies 4’s so Sydney will also be attending to represent Saskatchewan as the SILVER medalists. Congratulations to Clem and her Regina teammate Harriette, and her Nutana teammates Rachel, and Eileen of their BRONZE medal!!

As always we are very proud of all of our members and cannot wait to cheer you on when you play the best of the best later this year!
