Stan­thorpe Bowls Club

AF­TER a highly suc­cess­ful come and try day at cro­quet in the morn­ing, we rocked up to bowls only to find the away board nearly filled (how dare bowlers go away on a bowls day?).

So there was only one game of pairs, with Anna Jones try­ing her new bowl­ing arm for six ends and a cou­ple prac­tis­ing for Saturday.

New­comer Richard Geard and Justin Liddy teamed up against Brian Brown and Len Gir­genti, with a win to Richard and Justin on a tie-break last end (15/14).

The team of John Cooke,

Jeff Aldridge and Cliff Jones trav­elled to Ten­ter­field on Sun­day for a great day’s bowl­ing, with good com­pany, good food and good bowls – alas, no prizes. They won two and lost one.

Mon­day’s work­ing bee was well at­tended and the greens and sur­rounds are look­ing bet­ter and bet­ter.

The RSL raf­fle on Fri­day night was won by Ros Brunck­horst.

Dates to re­mem­ber: club meet­ing on Fri­day, Twi­light Triples on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 11, and C of C Clas­sics com­ing up on Septem­ber 29. Big prizes on of­fer. For de­tails phone Justin on 0409 447 422.


Wal­lan­garra Golf

ON SATURDAY, Septem­ber 9, the good field con­tested for a sin­gle sta­ble­ford.

Bren­dan McMil­lian ended a lit­tle drought, com­ing out on top one clear of Kevin

Wil­liams, with Tony Mur­phy tak­ing out cap­tain stakes.

Tony topped off a pretty good day, tak­ing the ap­proach on the 14th and snar­ing the birdies nest on the sev­enth.

Steve Hamp­stead didn’t go home empty-handed, tak­ing the pin shot on the 15th.

Next week­end will see a big week­end of golf, with a sin­gle stroke be­ing played on the Saturday and on Sun­day, Septem­ber 17, we will be con­test­ing the an­nual two-ball am­brose for Golf World Day.

It is $25 a per­son (lunch in­cluded), tee-off from 9–9.30am. Grab your part­ner for an en­joy­able day. Golfers and non-golfers are wel­come.

Sporters Golf

A WIN for Ray Thorn on Sun­day, with Ian Anderson the run­ner-up. The run-downs went to John Rawl­ings and Phil Zikan. Ian had the best gross.

No tak­ers for the pin shot on the 12th and Bren­don Barker took the 17th and the pro pin.

Lucky meat tray winners were Jordy Barker and Peter Good­sir.

Same time tee-off be­tween 8–8.30am next Sun­day.

RSL Golf

AL­THOUGH the sun was shin­ing there was a cold south-west­erly wind blow­ing for last Wed­nes­day’s RSL golf.

None­the­less there was a good turnout of in­trepid golfers for the Septem­ber Monthly Medal com­pe­ti­tion.

Charles Seeto set a hot pace in the con­di­tions, re­turn­ing a nett score of 65 to clearly win the men’s sec­tion. Af­ter a rough trot lately Max Hunter showed a re­turn to form with a nett 68 to be the run­ner-up.

The pin shots were won by Max Hunter – third and David Burgess – 17th. No one could man­age to put their tee shot on the 12th. Maybe the wind was to blame. Least num­ber of putts was won by Lyle Bryant.

The ladies’ Monthly Medal win­ner was Lynette Lud­low with a nett score of 73 and the run­ner-up was Linda Kelly with a nett 75. The pin shots were won by Lor­raine Evans – 12th and 5/14th and Lynette Lud­low – 17th. Tr­ish Fit­tock used the put­ter the least.

This Wed­nes­day is a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion.

Stan­thorpe Mal­let Sport

Some of our play­ers have had a very busy few weeks, with our usual games, our raf­fle tick­ets sales in town, and the Come and Try Day which was held on Saturday.

We thank those who made the ef­fort to man the raf­fle ta­ble, and we also thank the peo­ple who sup­ported our ef­forts.

Win­ner of the raf­fle was L. Haga­man with green ticket 77.

Thanks to the Golf Cro­quet play­ers who ar­rived early to set up the field on Saturday.

Also thanks to those who sup­plied morn­ing tea, and those who con­trib­uted in any other way to the event.

We were happy to have sev­eral prospec­tive play­ers at­tend and en­joy their ses­sion play­ing un­der in­struc­tion of our mem­bers.

Some of them were ex­cited to score hoops, and sev­eral in­di­cated they may join us at a later date.

As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet

This week num­bers were down be­cause of ill health.

Grace Howard started off with a flour­ish dur­ing of break of 6, but Pat Sch­noor came through to beat Val Richards and Grace 26 – 14.

Pat had a break of 4 and two of 3.

Mar­garet Dick­en­son played Ef­fey Rus­sell.

Mar­garet had a break of 4 and one of 3 end­ing with 23 to Ef­fey’s 17.

Golf Cro­quet

This was a day when sev­eral play­ers ar­rived to brave the cold windy day, sport­ing ach­ing backs, shoul­ders and limbs.

It seemed a bug of some sort was do­ing its best to bring some down, but for­tu­nately didn’t de­velop be­yond aches and pains as far as I know.

The shot of the day this week went to Dianne Wren, who man­aged a fab­u­lous jump shot from two feet out; the squeals of amaze­ment bought all play to a halt. Well done Di.

A hole in one was scored by both Shirley Page and Justin Liddy, and Shirley Page and Elaine Brown had equal top ag­gre­gate score of 11.

Re­sults were: Game 1. Val Fan­court and Dianne Wren 13 de­feated Shirley Page and Bev Sul­li­van 10. Elaine Brown and Justin Liddy, both play­ing two balls each, played an 11 all draw. They both scored 6 with one ball and 5 with the sec­ond.

Game 2 was a triples. Elaine, Val and Justin played Dianne, Bev and Shirley. This game was a 10 all draw and scores of all games this week il­lus­trated just how evenly well ev­ery­body is play­ing.
