Those who were knocked out in the morning drew some comfort, sitting in the clubhouse, from watching the others battling with bowls too wet to hold properly, scoreboards where the wet numbers stuck together and difficulty in delivering a bowl encumbered by too much protective clothing.
The final of the Ladies' Handicap will be between Jill Bishop and Mary Smith.
