Gary Keep entered into the Over Sixty State Singles last week in Perth and made his way through to the grand final where he played Gordon King from Osborne Park. After a few ends Gordon King had Gary 9 to 1. Half way through the game Gary came back and made it 15 all. 

The next few ends were crucial as Gary was holding shot, but Gordon King came through and trailed the Jack for 2 then on the next end Gary held for 3 but Gordon King drove the Jack into the ditch finishing the game with 21 to 15. 

Congratulations Gary. You played really well and have done Collie Bowling Club proud.
