Traditional mixed pairs event at King George’s
Seven mixed triples team battled it out for the Ted Hasler Trophy at Brentwood Bowls Club on Sunday.
On a long day, each team played four games of six ends at the King George’s Playing Fields green with the eventual winners being Alison Hare, Ann Powell and skip Harry Egleton who had convincingly racked up enough points to life the silverware after their third game of the day.
In their final encounter, they added another 15 points to put them on 57 which was 16 clear of runners-up Pat miller, Maureen Murrell and their skip Sandra Fenton.
In third place on 33 points were Joan Stevenson, Ted Vidler and skip Byron Davies. Other teams included Keith Howson, Dave Coward, Margaret Rayment; Ken Collins, Brian Martin, Maureen Jaycock; Trevor Watson, Barbara Morrish, John Howard and Janet Howson, Cliff Jaycock, Trevor Pedley.
The results were announced by club chairman Richard Rose who thanked his son Mark for managing the competition, a task which was more complicated than usual due to the odd number of teams. “But we got there in the end,” said Richard.
Club president Byron Davies thanked Richard for his contribution to the success of the all-day event and ladies’ section captain Margaret Rayment thanked Kate Davies for organising refreshments.
Ted Hasler was president of Brentwood Bowling Club from 1977 to 1982 and the eponymous trophy was first played for in 1985.
