Honiton bowling club finals day ended with a thunderstorm, but the evening barbecue and entertainment went ahead as planned and was thoroughly enjoyed, writes Julie Grant.

The rain did delay one days bowling, but did not hinder some excellent play and close fought games often dependent on the last few woods.

The finals results were: Men’s singles winner Trevor Pipe, finalist Kieran Daniels; Ladies singles winner Sue Evans, finalist Shirley Hiscocks; Two Wood singles winner Carole Binmore, finalist Sue Evans; Open Handicap singles winner Kieran Daniels, finalist Sue Evans; Mens drawn pairs winners Barrie Singleton, Kieran Daniels, finalists Gerry Stafrace, Scott Eveleigh; Drawn Triples winners Yvonne Williams, Di Hawkins, Scott Eveleigh, finalists June Lee, David Downs, Pete Goodwin; Mixed pairs winners Sue Evans, Colin Mees, finalists Yvonne Rayner, Trevor Pipe; Open singles winner Kieran Daniels, finalist Gerry Stafrace; Ladies drawn pairs winners Sarah Duffin, Sue Evans, finalists Yvonne Williams, Brenda Harris; Open pairs winners Yvonne Rayner, Trevor Pipe, finalists Kieran Daniels, Scott Eveleigh; Ladies Handicap winner Sue Evans, finalist Yvonne Rayner.

There was some good news for the men’s Over-60 A team who won their away game against Okehampton securing eight points and hoping the last game will save them from relegation.

Not such good fortune for the TCL team who lost 78-62 at Hemyock.

Last, but not least, best wishes to Yvonne Rayner and Trevor Pipe who, with sub Malcolm Seaborne have won through to the County semi-finals of the mixed triples, to be played on September 13, at Newton Abbot.
