Last weekend at Lithgow City saw 28 teams participate in the Spring Pairs for 2019.
Local pairings were prominent in the $6000 prize money, with Jeff Madden and Ian Townsend remaining unbeaten with six wins and a draw taking out first place.
In second place were Dapto visitors beat regulars Peter Thelan and John Fitzgerald. John having been a local, brings his partner each year and regularly collects prize money.
They managed six wins and one loss, only to be nudged out by the narrowest of margins.
Terry Warder and Jeff Shaw, also regular tournament attendees from Harbord, managed third place by totalling five wins, a draw and a loss.
Local Club players managed to fill placings fourth, fifth and sixth with Frank Mierczak and Dave Robson being edged out of fourth place by Michael Hughes and Peter Rutherford on shot margin, each with five wins.
The final prize winners in sixth place were Les Barnes and Davey Hunter totalling four wins and two draws.
The Club wishes to thank all players who have travelled to compete in the tournament, having come from Harbord, Dapto and Griffith as well as the local club players from Portland, Wallerawang and Lithgow.
Tournaments like these wouldn't be successful without their patronage.
Club Triples and Mcmurtrie Pairs are progressing towards semi final stages and results will be recorded in the coming weeks.
