Updated: Apr 4, 2020
Congratulations to Hans Momkes (in photo on right) 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.
