THE EP trips bowls competition culminates this weekend at the Kowie Bowling Club in Port Alfred, with the 10 men's and women's PE finalists being joined by four teams from the Eastern Areas and two from Midlands.
The Woods have continued their domination of EP events and they provide five – three women's and two men's – teams of the 10 PE qualifiers.
Bev Treadway will have to face off against Jen Cherry in the first round, with section A being completed by the relatively inexperienced team from Victoria Park, skipped by Pat Cullen and Hermie Scholtz, of Kenton.
Section B looks tougher, with Sandra Wiblin (Port Alfred), Barbara Coetzee (The Woods), Lesley Hartwell (Mill Park) and Dalene Hope (Somerset East) the contestants.
The men's section A of Clive Bartlett (Grahamstown), Gary Vermaak (Woods), Curt Fischer (Westview) and Hennie Slabbert (J Bay) should be keenly contested.
Vermaak will be looking to add to the EP fours and pairs titles which he holds.
Section B sees Trevor Frost (Port Alfred), Eric Louw (Midlands), Piet Slabbert (Despatch) and Kepler Wessels (Woods) battling it out for a place in the final.
This is the last EP competition of the year.
