BEST of the BEST

LINDSAY MARSH won his seventh singles title and Marilyn Bradbury her third on Sunday, both in emphatic style to underline their status as the best players in the club. Lindsay has demonstrated that for 18 years while Marilyn is currently head and shoulders the best woman player in the club. Go to the respective sections for details of Sunday's finals.
MERRIWA ladies produced a powerful display at Quinns Rocks on Friday (March 23) to lift the Wanneroo/Joondalup Trophy for the ninth time , finishing with 18 points, four ahead of Warwick with Sorrento in third.
The most successful rink with a maximum three victories came from Hazel Ashbolt, Marj Morton, Wendy Leicester and Maggie Edgar. Thery were supported by the Mavis Price rink (Marilyn Bradbury, Gail Kempton, Mimi van Heeswijk) and the Julia Barron rink (Lyn Sibson, May O'Neill, Ronda Macgregor), who both had two wins and a defeat.
The other rink (Audrey Patterson (Jean Brown), Lorraine Briggs, Liz Kuipers and Ellaine Jopling) collected one win.
THE annual Ladies Gala Day, which attracted 32 teams, raised an impressive $2,480 for club funds. The teams played two games of 14 ends with a four from Sorrento coming out on top.

THE club held a social competition on Saturday, April 7, to raise funds for Legacy, the charity that helps children of people who have died in service of their country.  With website editor Briaan Barron in Queensland attending the Commonwealth Games, secretary Steve Appleton submitted the following details. The event attracted 40 players and €780 was raised for Legacy.
