Bowls bids farewell to Rod

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THERE was a big turnout for Rod Parkes’ go­ing away gath­er­ing on Satur­day af­ter­noon fol­low­ing the usual Jack­pot com­pe­ti­tion.

Rod has been a val­ued mem­ber of the club for many years and his con­tri­bu­tions have been many and for that the Club is very grate­ful.

He has held many roles within the Club and his en­thu­si­asm and com­mit­ment to the sport has been mo­ti­va­tional to all. Rod has fam­ily com­mit­ments in north­ern New South Wales but has promised to re­turn for hol­i­days. In the mean­time, he will be greatly missed but we wish him all the best.

The day’s re­sults: Sam Parkes, J Gir­genti, and Rod Parkes de­feated Dick Pitt, Kiwi and C Maxted 23-20. K Pitt, T Pisot and Doug Pitt de­feated N Pacey, L Valen­tine and B Wol­land 15-11. W Parkes, G Mclean and G Banks beat M Mazzer, C Wills and C Dwyer 18-14. J Hills, Steiny and J Hock­ing de­feated E Pitt, G Marsh and Zil­lie 22-14. S Chat­ter­ton, C An­dreassen and T Brly­ack beat Stuey, P Janssen and J Sell­ers 24-11.

The win­ners of the day were J Maxwell, R Gray and P Cleary who took home the meat trays with a big lead over S Ren­ton, A Christie and N Tesch of 25-8.

Mem­bers are re­minded that “full mem­ber­ship” will be re­quired within the next two weeks for Jack­pot and com­pe­ti­tion bowls. Se­lec­tion will soon be­gin for club com­pe­ti­tion so mem­bers are re­minded to nom­i­nate as soon as pos­si­ble.

Next Satur­day will be Jack­pot bowls as usual and will be the last mufti dress be­fore the new year’s com­pe­ti­tion be­gins.

In the women’s games the re­sults were: Betty Mc­clel­land and Ca­role Maxted (+28) de­feated Robin Petrus and Mar­garet Cooper (+9). Jan­ice Brly­ack, Dot Kossi and Val Robin­son (+26) de­feated Denise High­land, Glenys Sharp and Greta Burke (+17). The lucky raf­fle winner was Jan­ice Brly­ack.

And re­mem­ber nom­i­na­tions for the cham­pi­onships pairs closes today.
