The final of 2021 Major Singles Championships was played Saturday afternoon between Danielle Thompson and Pauleen Dimos. Danielle had produced perfect bowls to win her previous matches and her bowls in this match were no different. Pauleen! well her recent successes at District and Regional levels were encouraging, and this match was one not to miss. Danielle started the better, drawing perfectly, even when her opponent had the shot, Danielle would managed to take it away. As the game when on, Danielle’s lead increased, Pauleen, at times would pull Danielle’s lead back to be a couple of shots, but Danielle wasn’t going to be denied this match, her reward for her consistent display of great bowls, was to win the 2021 Major Singles Championship, 25-17, over the 2020 Major Singles Champion Pauleen.

Sunday 30th May, another great morning of bowls, the Final of the 2021 Southern Slopes District Singles was played between Condo Sports Club’s, Pam Nicholl and Temora’s Exies, Tanya Chaffey at Lake Cargelligo’s Sports Club. B
Pam and Tanya took it in turn to win ends, calling on the Marker, Margaret McCarten to give answers to who was holding shot. At times the Umpire was called, using more precise instruments to decide the shot, looking for anything thinner then a sheet of paper to decide the end.
