The Junior Bowls Championships commenced on Monday with singles at Club Dubbo, followed by fours.
Among the Fours overall winning team was West Dubbo's James Robinson.
The championships were declared open by Gulgong Bowling Club President and Zone four President, John Mobbs.
There were an impressive 96 entries in the championships with 15 clubs represented from within zone four.
West Dubbo, Gulgong and Mudgee junior bowlers made it through to singles semi-finals with Gulgong's Jordan Thompson playing Robinson.
Unfortunately for Robinson, he lost in the singles by a tight four points as Thompson scored a 25-21 victory.
The four semi-finalists from the singles, including Thompson and Robinson who were competitors just 24 hours earlier, paired with Tom Rich from Mudgee and Lachlan Thompson from Gulgong for the fours games.
The wise decision to team up made for an unstoppable grouping, and the boys went about winning all of their games throughout the day before going on to win the overall finals.
The boys had a bye in the first round followed by wins in the second and third games.
The second game was a commanding performance as the team scored a 31-5 victory and the third game was also comfortable, the final score being 26-4.
The final game was by far the hardest with the end score being a tight 12-10 in favour of the local hopes.
Next week junior bowlers from around the region will return to Club Dubbo for the prestigious Noel Soane Junior Pairs.
More than $4,000 in prize money will be on offer for some of the most exciting young bowlers in the state.
The tournament has been running for 20 years, and was named after Soane who had been considered a true gentleman of the game.
Soane originated from the West Dubbo Bowling Club.
In 1997 Soane passed away, but his dedication to junior bowls at West Dubbo Bowling Club in the nineties has continued to live on well after that.
His aim had been teaching etiquette to junior's bowlers and that is something the club continues to do now.
