The Tapner triples took place on Monday 1st March. The first day of Autumn started out misty but soon after the games started the skies cleared and we had another excellent day on the greens, albeit pretty humid!
The format was two bowl triples, 15 ends over 3 games. After game two it looked like team Wilson from St Ives were in good shape with two wins and 40+ margin... It seemed like they only needed to get over the line in the third game to be overall winners. The nearest rivals were team Alexander from Harbord also with two wins but a much lesser margin.
However team Spanyik from Chatswood had other ideas! They also had two wins and gave the St Ives boys stiff resistance only losing by 1 shot after the lead changed several times. Meanwhile Mark, Terry & Jeff were racing to a 26-4 win over their Harbord clubmates led by Mick Powell.
The final tally was 1st Jim Barclay, Chris Bergman, Wilson Cheng with 3 wins and +41, second Jeff Shaw, Terry Warder, Mark Alexander with 3 wins +38, in third place Al Lewin, Steve Gliddon, Phil Westcott with 3 wins +27
