Last weekend our club hosted a section of the Zone Presidents Singles with four of our bowlers reaching the semi-finals. Steve Kirkman played Ian Nelder and Brent Lees played his brother Zac with Ian and Brent going in to the final. The final was a hard fought match with Brent getting a handy lead during the middle of the game but then Ian was able to bridge the gap. After 40 ends Ian won the match 31-28. Good luck to Ian this weekend when he travels
to Dubbo to playoff against other sectional winners of this competition.
