FSCDWBA Held their Champion Of Club Singles Championship winners at Bodalla Bowling Club on Friday, November 2. Thank you to Bodalla for hosting the day.
Even though the day was very hot, there were some closely contested games, with great sportsmanship all round.
The winner this year was Chris Hansen from Dalmeny WBC and the runner-up was Denise McGlashan from Bermagui WBC.
Congratulations to all contestants who entered the event. District hopes that you enjoyed the experience.
Monday started out overcast but finished mostly under sunny skies persistently hindered by an unsettled wind for the 30 bowlers organised by Punter Alan with the lowest winning margin deciding the winners on 1 in Chris Silver- Jones, Brett or Graham and Tom’s son Ken from runners-up on 4 after countback in Shark Finn, Garry L-Rentacar and the Macedonian Illya.
Peter Mur-100 scored the first resting toucher but the $98 jackpot was not won. Emberley Footprint, Bluey Ralph, Rifleman Reg and visitor Joe Cerona added to the wrong bias jar while after a few unclaimed numbers the raffle winners were Reg, Finn, Michael Day and Peter M.
Another fine Thursday with the usual swirling wind had 36 bowlers on the cards extremely well managed by Chef Keith as with the highest winning margin deciding the winners on 18 in none other than Snoopy Falkiner, Cobber Peter and Chef Keith from the runners-up on 17 in John Ver-L and the Badridge couple Cheryl and Richard.
No resting toucher was scored nor was the $122 jackpot won. Although more wrong bias sinners were noted only Ex.PM Neil, Gail Close-L, Bluey Ralph and the Menthoid Doctor’s girl Maureen put their hands up and the raffle prizes went to Neil, Lois Mac or Greg, Peter Mur-100, ticket seller Marg Ponder, our female visitor and Benny Ken.
With the start of the tradies bowls Friday night twilight bowls managed 10 bowlers enjoying another clear cool evening organised expertly by Bruce A1-ken for the winners in a triple group of the Less couple Sharon and Bob with Ray End-rod from the runners-up Fighting Frank and Postie Joe and once again no resting toucher was scored.
The Goose won the Southern Eurobodalla Plumbing $10 door prize and Steal Forests took out the Bound 2 Earth Coffee Shop 2 free cups of coffee. The Friday twilight game is open to all over the age of 12, both male and female, so come along and enjoy 2 hours of fun but please get your names down on the sign-up sheets by 4.45pm for the 5.30pm start.
Saturday saw Dalmeny men’s bowls successful in the local Parliamentary Shield played at Moruya.
The semi-final round of the “100-Up” event saw Macedonian Illya (8) up against Steal Coulson (6) who led in 3 out of the first 4 ends but could not maintain his scoring over the next 13 ends with his closest being 16 behind at the 8th and 11th ends before going down to Illya comprehensively, 105/65.
In another one-sided game Barry Arminter (12) took on Shark Finn (12) and led all the way being only 4 in front at the 2nd end before scoring 5 or more in all but 4 ends and winning 103/77 at the 18th end.
Listen out during the week for the time and come along and see what should be an exciting final.
On behalf of the all Club Dalmeny members I wish to pass on our thanks to Brian Mayer or, as referred to by the writer as Mayor Brian, for his service as a board member over the last 3 years and the disappointment that not enough of your fellow members decided to vote for your re-election.
Many thanks Brian for at least putting your hand up and your bib in and giving it a go in the first place.
It was a perfect day for a game of bowls as we celebrated Past Presidents Day at Dalmeny.
We had seven past presidents present, Lucy Gresty, Margaret Macauley, Lyn Marsden, Barbara Pearce, Robin Gourley, Lyn Dunbar and Maureen McKenzie, who were presented with a corsage of orchids by Gabby.
We had apologies and best wishes from Dulcie Boyd and Roma English who were unable to make it.
The past presidents sponsored the day so that there were 28 lucky door prizes and 14 raffle prizes and almost everyone went home with a lovely gift.
In a break from tradition we invited the men of Dalmeny to join us for the day. They enjoyed the bowls and the social scene. The club looked gorgeous as Gabby Cheel certainly has a way with flowers. Thanks Gabby.
Pat Cameron and her team provided a delicious lunch barbeque and sweeties, such that we all went home heavier than when we arrived. Thanks to Pat and also the barbeque chefs, Garry Lavis and Lionel Carpenter.
The bowls was organised as a Joe’s Special game of Triples with the Past Presidents trophy awarded according to Shots Up.
The winners of the Past Presidents trophy for 2018 were Bruce McKenzie, Anne Luke and Barbara Pearce. Ralph Redhead and Bob Luke were closest to the spider.
Congratulations to the winners and well done to all bowlers. Thanks to Gail Farrell and the match committee for their efforts.
Diary dates include the Minor Singles event on November 20 and 27 and the Christmas Party on December 12. There is always something fun happening at Dalmeny, the friendly club.
Tuross Head Women
Denise Lidbury is off to Soldiers Point this weekend, November 3 and 4 to play in the NSW State Annual Bowls fixture of Country versus City. There are 20 bowlers chosen for each side. Four members play in the under 25s and eight in both the Open and Seniors.
Denise has been a member of Tuross Head Country Club Women’s Bowling Club since 1990. In that time she has won many club titles as well as District. She has participated regularly in Regional and State events.
In 2018 she was a member of the Tuross Head Pennant 1 side who played at the Entrance in August in the State playoffs.
She also played in the pairs, triples and fours competitions at the State level at Taren Point in September. The selectors certainly had an eye for excellence in choosing Denise to be part of the Country Seniors side. She, along with Emma Petit from Merimbula, are the only two representatives from southern NSW.
Tuross Head Country Club is extremely proud of Denise’s efforts and wish her well in this highly contested event. We hope Country will be able to defend the title they won in 2017.
