Finals Report and Results
All the Triples finals and the Ladies pairs
finals were played in the morning from 10 am in very poor conditions. At best
there was drizzle and at worst heavy downpours all morning as a result of the
weather none of these games went the full distance with the runners up
conceding. Fortunately the weather did improve slightly and the rain eventually
went off – after the last game had ended! So here are the results:

The semi finalists are known.
The quarter final results of all the competitions are all
known and so we can bring you the semi final line up. Unfortunately a number of
quarter finals were not actually played with some games conceded and inclement
weather resulting in a toss of a coin. It is always rather sad to have to
decide the outcome of a competition that way but unfortunately sometimes this
is just no other solution. A plea therefore to all semifinalist to try to
arrange games as soon as possible. Please do not wait until close to the play
by date of 19^{th} August – give yourselves time to rearrange if play
is stopped because of rain etc. Remember it is British summertime!
All semifinals should be played on a neutral green
agreeable to both players but it is the responsibility of the home player to
make the necessary arrangements. As always we will accommodate semifinals at
Rosedale Park if we can and should you wish to play there.
The situation regarding the draw for each competition is
below; I know many of you appreciate being able to keep track of all the
players.

Thursday Report  2014 Hillingdon Finals
Dave Parrott retained the Over 60s title beating previous winner Derek Cutmore 2111 on Thursday evening. Winning five ends on the trot early on with counts of 3,1,1,2,3 Parrott established a 10  2 lead. Cutmore hit back winning a couple of ends but could never get on terms in what was a great display of draw bowling.
The Mens pairs was a long drawn out affair with each end taking about 12 minutes. The Uxbridge defending champions Reap / Ciampini led 11  8 at half time. Four consecutive singles ate away the ends as the pair held Tomkins and Reynolds at bay. 13  10 after 14 ends extended to 21  11 with an end to spare.
The Open Championship saw a great match up with some high scoring ends. Six of the ends had a count of either 3 or 4 shots. Ron Le Leux led early 3 2 but Tony Waller hit back to lead 6  5. Then fortune swung again Le Leux 9  8 up before the pendulum stretched the other way with Waller 18  14 to the good. Incredibly, fate swung yet again and with two massive counts of 3 then 4 shots Le Leux took the Open title for the first time, 21  18.

Wednesday Report on Hillingdon Finals 2014
A good evening crowd witnessed some exciting bowling in the first four finals of this year's competitions.
In the ladies triples Hayes always held the upper hand leading 81 after five ends and 115 at halftime. Court Park rallied early in the second half to too many heavy woods left the way clear for Hayes to gain consecutive counts of 3 and 1 to take a 178 lead after 14. They defended well enough, though losing shots on each of the last four ends and counts of 1,1,2,1 left the final scoreboard showing 1713 to the Botwell ladies.
The ladies pairs was an allFassnidge affair. The Lawes / Connor combination got off to the worst possible start as they dropped 11 shots in the first four ends. Fighting back well, they got back to 1011 after nine ends. However, the experienced pairing of Martel and Simpson scored consecutive counts of 2 and a very damaging 6 to take a 1910 lead. The match score closed to 2218 but the latter pair held on well to take the title.
The men's singles was an astonishing affair. Gary Miller got off to a slow start having come direct from work. Alan Hooper stormed into a 123 lead before the Denham, man got his weight sorted out. Miller stuck at it and won six of the next eight ends and got back to 1116. The Fassnidge man responded with a count of 2 shots to lead 1811, surely it was all over. Miller then showed true grit with a storming run of 1,1,1,4 to level things up at 18 each. A deuce then meant he just needed a single to reach the winning line but Hooper would not be denied and with a 2,1 finish, the Fassnidge man took the title 2120 to thunderous applause.
The only game left on the green was the men's triples. What a match of two halves this was! The Uxbridge front end could not find their weight and the Rosedale trio, skipped by Jason Rowlands, stormed into a 71 lead early on. They extended this to a supposedly unbeatable 151 lead at halftime. Uxbridge, skipped by Ciampini, then went into game mode. Consecutive scores of 3,5,2 meant they were back in it at just 1115 down. Rosedale then scored 3,1 to take a 1913 lead with just four ends to play. Uxbridge powered to counts of 4,2,3 to take the title after being 14 shots down at one stage. A great evenings entertainment for the neutral.
