Tim Wilkinson was able to add another Jack Nolan Triples win to his resume on the long weekend, but this time he did it only a short while after finding himself on a whole new team than the one he'd expected to take in with him.
This year, Wilkinson ended up contesting the finals without his former Railway teammates and fellow winners from last year Chris Rosanes and Anthony Jarvis due to scheduling conflicts.
"Different team this year, I was with a couple of other blokes last year and was lucky enough to get a win then as well, it was all by luck that I landed in this team, which was only on Monday, but that worked out pretty good," Wilkinson said.
"I had another side and unfortunately those two guys weren't available and Heath and Richard had a player on their side become unavailable, so it worked out really well for us."
Regardless of the circumstances, Wilkinson was very grateful to have Heath McGuire from Forster Bowling Club as his lead and Dubbo City's Richard Clarke as his second.
"Obviously I'd like to thank the two blokes I played with," Wilkinson said.
"It was great, it was really good, the guy's performed really well all weekend."
The competition, held annually, carries an $8000 total in prize money and was this year used as an opportunity to acknowledge the newly amalgamated Dubbo RSL Services Club.
"It is good to repeat, this is a tournament that I look forward to every year, so it's a very good one to win."
No stranger to the level and depth of competition on display during the tournament, having won in 2015 and 2018, Wilkinson still left impressed with the quality of player on the green.
"The competition's always tough on this weekend, but the boys played outstandingly for us."
"It was a really tough last game, young Hayden [Barrow] was playing really good bowls all weekend and the two guys up front for him were very good for him, we were a bit fortunate in the early part of the game and we were able to rack up a bit of a lead, but it closened up towards the end."
"That was probably the point, we always knew it was going to be tough going into it."
But along with the competition come the crowds and the camaraderie, which are as much of a draw as the competition itself.
"It's great, it's really great to see," Wilkinson said.
"This club has always done well with this tournament, it's always brought a lot of people, a lot of good bowlers and it's just one of those really good competitions that you end up looking forward to throughout the year."
The Jack Nolan Triples competition will be expected to return once again across the long weekend next year.
