Finals time claims West Deakin Hellenic
It seems West Deakin Hellenic had a case of the bridesmaids as well as a double dose of dirty dozens.
WDH had a team in the final of both the men's and women's champion of champion fours on the weekend, but they couldn't take out either title.
They lost the women's 25-12 to Canberra quartet Gill Stenner, Jimmy Ogle, Lois Waters and Robyn Moxon at Weston Creek on Sunday.
Then Tuggeranong Valley's Mark Fogarty, Don Angel, Graeme Howie and Ashley White beat them 21-12 in the men's at Yass later the same day.
Meanwhile, after rain and injury delayed the final, Weston Creek pair Garry Penyu and Bruce Waugh won the ACT men's pairs title 22-18 against Jamie Fawthrop and Wayne Twomey at Canberra.
Anyone with the luxury of pay TV might have noticed the Scottish International Open in Perth, Scotland, on Eurosport last week.
Some of the draw bowling on display was mind boggling, with Scot Paul Foster claiming the chocolates in the end.
Like the Scottish Open, the World Indoor Bowls Championships is part of the World Bowls Tour.
Hopefully Andrew Ashlin and Peter Fahey were also watching because they would have got a taste of what to expect.
The duo has won through to the pairs event at the World Indoors at Potters, in Norfolk, in January.
They still have to win through their qualifying section against Canada, Hong Kong and the US to get into the main draw.
Then they'll be donning the coloured clothes on the blue carpet for the world to see.
The ACT bowls revolution begins on Tuesday, with the ACT playing a three-Test series against Tasmania at Weston Creek.
History will be made when the second Test is played under lights - the first time the ACT's bowled at night - with music blaring and entry free.
Also, the ACT men's champion of champion triples begins at Belconnen Bowls Club on Saturday, with the final on Sunday at 1.30pm.
Last year the title was won by Canberra North trio Graeme Marks, Ken Burden and Don Harber, but they won't be back having failed to retain their club championship.
Meanwhile, the Queanbeyan master's pairs tournament began on Monday. The final will be held on Thursday at 1.30pm.
