NWBC held their Patrons and Life Members Day on Tuesday, October 2. The members welcomed Patron Vena Butt and Life Member Daphne Clark to join them for lunch and presentations to the winners and runners-up.
Life Member Norma Marsh was unable to attend this year but is looking forward to attending next year.
20 bowlers enjoyed a great game of bowls with one game of fours and two games of triples
Winners out of the hat were G. Riley, M. Findlay, M. Naylor, B. Greenshield, C. Cork. Runners up out of the hat were B. McNamara, K. Ferguson, L. Gosper and P. Grant.
The Patron and Life Member were presented with a lovely plant by the president who thanked them both for coming.
Wednesday Men’s Triples
An overcast day didn’t deter the 36 bowlers who battled for the Highest Winning Score with “Bazza’ Goodwin, Ken Burrows and K.Callaway big winners over Don Caldwell, John Lonergan and Greg Riley 36-10.
Runners up were Graham Cummins, Nev Butt and Keith Bowater with a 30-11 win over J. Bennett, S. Breust and John Breust.
Saturday Men’s Jackpot Pairs

Sunday Mixed Social
Highest Winning Margin went to Denise Holman, Maureen Nankervis and John Lonergan 22-12 over Kaye Wiffen, Patricia Woods and Bruce Rapkins.
A fine holiday Monday with clear skies saw 40 bowlers enjoying the conditions with the first man’s boy Ken working the cards where the points system decided the winners on 231/2 points in Shark Finn, Cobber Dudley and the Macedonian Illya from the runners-up on 22 points in Hottie Smith, Bluey Ralph and gospeller Bob. Par Wain scored the resting toucher with his first bowl of the day but the $144 jackpot was not claimed. Our Wrong bias sinners included several by Ian Cocko and Ex.PM Neil and the raffle prizes went to Ralph, our visiting bowler, Slim Dusty and big John Oarley.
No bowls was held on Thursday due to the long awaited rain we so badly needed along with the rest of the country and not a tear was shed to help the “precipitation”.
Names down today for the “100-Up” event please as it’s been postponed for a week. Don’t forget that Friday night twilight bowls begins this week so names down by 4.45pm for a 5.30pm start.
