Hans Momkes wins Asheville Club Singles
Congratulations to Hans Momkes on winning the 2017 club singles title in an extra end of an exciting game against the stalwart Dennis Duncan. In a match of 18 ends, Hans jumped out to a 10-3 lead after 7 ends playing short to medium jacks. But Dennis garnered a 2 on the 8th end, and with that he changed the jack length and started to play "coast to coast", winning 6 of the next 9 ends and tying the match at 16 points apiece with two ends to play. Dennis pushed forward and took a 17-16 lead after 17 ends, but Hans held steady and tied the game at the end of regulation. In the extra end, Hans showed his form and took a two to win the club singles title. In all 10 bowlers participated in the round robin event that took place over the summer. In addition to Hans and Duncan, other semi-finalists included Fred McKenzie and Roger Parkin.

Retired Dog Wins Florida Lawn Bowls Championship
After a long career in medical billing, Zimmy retired to South Florida where she could really pursue her passion – lawn bowls. What began as a relaxing pastime quickly bowled its way onto the competitive circuit. Zimmy has since won three regional trophies and was recently declared the “Lawn Bowl Champion” at the state finals in Pensacola.                                (As reported in the Fluffington Post)

Roger Parkin lays down a bowl on rubico in Clearwater FL 

Four Asheville bowlers ventured to Clearwater Florida to compete in the Southeast Open along with approximately 50 other bowlers from the Southeast, NY and NJ, England, Scotland and Canada. Players competed in three disciples: singles, pairs and triples.

Clearwater features a rubico surface that is hard-packed clay made from crushed basalt with a dusting of fine granular rubico on the surface. It is not exactly the same as but similar to the playing surface at the French Open tennis tournament.

Asheville's representatives (see photo left) competed against one another in the semi-finals of the pairs championship flight. Nelson and Parkin came out on top in the showdown, but Momkes-Peele rebounded to finish in 3rd place. Nelson-Parkin lost in the final and finished 2nd.

Nelson-Parkin also claimed 2nd place in the triples event, teaming up with Clearwater bowler Burl Roller. Nelson won the B flight in singles and finished 2nd to Roller for Bowler of the Tournament.
