Annual Anniversary Mixed Triples
21 April 2003

Original Bowling Club, Anglesea 1960Monday saw the 43rd anniversary of the opening of the Anglesea Bowling Club. To celebrate, the club held the annual Anniversary Mixed Triples event sponsored by Brian and Betty Butterworth. Each year since 1960, the Butterworths have sponsored the event with floral prizes going to the winners.

Blessed with a perfect Autumn day, 72 participants from near and far began the event at 12.30pm. The 12 mixed teams were made up of three randomly selected players, either male or female, with the main focus of keeping the teams as even as possible.

Play began with the traditional 'Bowling for the Spider'. A toy spider is placed in the middle of each green. At this point the sexes divided. The men bowled for the spider on one green (the left), while the women bowled for the spider placed on the other. The players who bowled closest to the spider won a prize, which this year was a potted rose. This year's Spider Winners were Marg Aitkins and Jimmy Reed.

With tradition out of the road, the sexes once again mingled and the event began in earnest. The event consists of two 'Games', first and second. Each 'Game' consists of 12 ends with one team of three shooting for an end. When the first 'Game' finished, afternoon tea was called. With coffee and cake out of the road, the second 'Game' began.

The days winners were Ian Hunt (Lorne), Nareen Clarke (Anglesea) and Laurie Reddan (Anglesea). The runners up were Len Cockerill (Anglesea), John Hicks (Anglesea) and Bev Felber (Geelong).
