A triple from Aldeby BC won Bradwell Bowls Club's first open tournament of 2009, played recently in fine weather.

The maximum entry of 28 triples, plus a record number of supporters and spectators, enjoyed fine hospitality and efficient organisation.

Andy Cameron assisted by Tom Hall directed play. The results were exceptionally close as the top two blocks both earned 35 points, the order determined by shots difference.

The third, fourth and fifth triples all scored 31 points, and shots difference was again the deciding factor. The top cash prizewinners were from Aldeby BC - J Rochard, D Kerry and R Searll.

From Bradwell, George Barnes, Stan Hopwood and T McNulty came second. The August 16 Open Tournament is fully subscribed but supporters and spectators are welcome.
