BALLARAT District Bowls Division mid-week premier Central Wendouree has achieved back-to-back regional success and a right to compete at Barham on April 3 in the state finals.
This was a tight fought final against Kyneton CHBD finalists, on March 14, the game came down to the last end on one rink skippered by Kay Geddes, who under great pressure brought home the division by four shots.
We wish them success and good bowling at Barham against metro pennant winners and other regional winners.
As last of the mid-week articles, and the last of mid-week games played, Tournament of Tournaments was at City Oval on March 18.
The winning team (S) J Kenyon, J Barnes, G Andrew and L Kelly won all three games to take off the Betty Middlin Trophy.
This Central Wendouree team has won this honor now three times. Runner-up was (S) D Bull, L Voterakis, M Tait and A Bremner (Daylesford).
Thanks to the match committee for doing the draw and City Oval for hosting this event, a great day had by all who participated.
Today is a big day for super-veterans in the BDBD area.

A final word from me, I wish to thank The Courier sports editor David Brehaut and journalists who have helped me contribute to mid-week bowling information this season.
May all Bowlers have a good winter and return to 2013/2014 season healthy and enthusiastic for the new challenges.
