Bowling. '---4~--- 'The final game for the pennant took place on Saturday, when-Port Fairy travelled by car to Camper down to play Warrnambool. The day was an ideal one for bowls, and the Cainperdown caretaker had the green in good order. The play was very even all through, but the Ports had the upper hand at the end of each count, and in spite of the bogus telegrams that flew round on Saturday night, announcing their defeat, they again came out the holders of the pen nant.and champions of the Western district for the second year in succession, a very creditable per formance, considering the club had lost the first two matches played, and had to win the next five, which they . succeeded in doing.
