Kurt and gail keep producing the goods
BARGARA's Gail Crompton and Tantitha's under-25 Queensland representative Kurt Brown have done it again, adding a pairs title to their already impressive individual achievements this year.
The duo won the Queensland mixed pairs, after two crushing victories were capped off with a tight defeat of Margaret Sproule and Gary Thomas (19-16) from Broadbeach/Gold Coast Tweed.
In the finals they defeated Delia Walsh and Peter Blackburn from Mackay Suburban 27-18.
Down 9-13 after nine ends, Brown rattled off 3-3-1-2 for a five-shot lead to make it 18-13.
Blackburn struck back to make it 18-17, but Brown was on a roll, taking out five of the remaining six ends to clinch the match.
In the women's pairs, Judy Everett and Tulu Chippendale's (Bargara) hopes of reaching the finals were dashed when they were defeated by Theresa Pin and Sue Brady from Mareeba Memorial in North Queensland 18-24.
Bargara's Wayne Holdsworth and Noel Pershouse in the men's pairs won their first round but lost to Tony Barbeler and Ray Harmsworth of Longreach/Leichhardt round two before bouncing back in round three, winning against Peter Baker and Garry Cummins of Mt Isa/North West 27-14.
The men's and women's fours started yesterday and the finals will start at 12.30pm today. The men's and women's singles start tomorrow at 8.30am, with the finals at 8.30am on Thursday.
