|Australian Pairs or 2-4-2 This
is a variation of a pairs game with a change in the bowling
order. Leads bowl 2 bowls, skips bowl 4 bowls, then leads
complete their last 2. This means that you are changing
position on every end. Leads become skips on the next end and
then skips become leasds.
The tournament was 3 ten end games. If the jack is knocked out of bounds it is respoted on the rink centerline and 2 metres from the front ditch and play continued. A tie game will play one extra end to break the tie. There will be a 7 point max per game. If there is a tie at the end of the tournament total points are used to determine the winner.
There was one tie in the second game where Dick Gibson and Ken Paddock beat Lenny and Susan LaCroix.
The winners were:
1st Pl: Mike Newton and Gloria Brown 3W + 20
2nd Pl: Steve Goodmanson and Art Roberts 3W + 17
3rd Pl: Jack Bucey and Donna Roberts 2W + 4
A Very Special Note: Joe Brown's birthday was on tournament day. I think his spirit inspired Gloria in her win with Mike Newton.
