Geraldton Guardian - - Sport - Joe Crid­dle

The 2017-18 Batavia Bowl­ing League sea­son is fast ap­proach­ing, with Mid West clubs gear­ing them­selves up for the start of the home and away pen­nants sea­sons for men and women, start­ing in the first week of Oc­to­ber.

Sev­eral open events, in­clud­ing the Won­thella Ladies’ Clas­sic and the Men’s Au­gust Clas­sic, at­tracted strong num­bers to set the scene for the up­com­ing year.

Last week­end the Deni­son club ran its an­nual Ladies’ Star Clas­sic, while the Northamp­ton ladies re­ceived great sup­port for the Mur­ray Crid­dle-nom­i­nated triples.

Ger­ald­ton last week opened the sea­son with its Ladies’ Open­ing Day, spon­sored by long-time mem­ber and pa­troness Mar­garet Sam­pey. The day saw the tra­di­tional spi­der roll open pro­ceed­ings, with Mar­i­lyn Cope and Kelly Hodge the two left stand­ing when all bowls came to rest.

The win­ner of the day was the side of Pat Belcher, Joan Darn­ley, Glenice Mild­wa­ters and Liz Boyle, with Minna Ras­mussen, Sue Smith, Pat Row­ell and Freda O’Brien claim­ing sec­ond.

The weekly mixed scroungers at the Won­thella Bowl­ing Club again at­tracted ex­cel­lent num­bers, with Phil Gale, Vic Luck­hurst, Ed­die Dodd and Wayne Brown win­ning through to the fi­nal.

Wayne Brown claimed the day ahead of Luck­hurst.

This week­end, Ger­ald­ton Bowl­ing Club ladies will hold the an­nual Batavia Coast Ma­jor League fours.

The two-day tour­na­ment will start at 9am both days.
