AIR­LIE BOWLS

THE 2014 bowl­ing sea­son started this week, with the of­fi­cial mixed open­ing day on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 23.

There was a great turn out of mem­bers who came along for a nice day of bowl­ing. Mem­bers should now put their names down for any club cham­pi­onship game they wish to par­tic­i­pate in for 2014.

The ladies cham­pi­onship sheets have been avail­able since last Tues­day, and all ques­tions should be di­rected to games con­troller Jill Spencer.

The last mixed Wed­nes­day com­pe­ti­tion was played be­fore the sea­son opener, and it was a lovely day for all in­volved.

Win­ners on the day were Henny Tat­tam, Keith Beetham and Rick Wil­liams de­feat­ing Wally Gray, Jill Spencer and Steve Tat­tam, Ladda Pur­die, Rhonda Lloyd and Margo Stan­ley de­feat­ing Tess Walker, Mar­garet Heeney and Regina Aquilina 22-20, Bruce Pur­die, Nik Fern­bach and Ken Ry­der de­feat­ing Jim Cairns, Herb Se­comb and John For­nasiero 25-11.

Other re­sults in­cluded Bruce Pur­die, Noela White­head and Rick Wil­liams de­feat­ing Tess Walker, Keith Beetham and Margo Stan­ley 18-6. Run­ners-up were Henny Tat­tam, Mar­garet Heeney and Steve Tat­tam de­feat­ing Henny Tat­tam, Mau­reen Barnard and Nik Fern­bach 17-7.

In other games Wally Gray, Betty Ni­colle and Mae Se­comb de­feated Rhonda Lloyd, Ali­son Holmes and Elaine Had­low 14-10 and Herb Se­comb, Eric Bot­tle and Andy Bell de­feated Louise Mahoney, Jenny Ry­der and David Dias 18-17 and Ladda Pur­die and Jill Spencer de­feated Garry North and Ken Ry­der 22-16.

A great af­ter­noon was had by all and thank you to Betta Home Liv­ing for spon­sor­ing the day. As of yes­ter­day, the men’s day will be back to men only so the jack­pot will com­mence from then.

All mem­bers are urged to come along and kick off the 2014 year in style.

Fri­day night bare­foot bowls saw the film crew from Shine Aus­tralia come along to film a doc­u­men­try on one of the busi­ness house bowlers, which brought some ex­cite­ment to the club.

Bare­foot bowls will be back this Fri­day as usual.

The cost is $15 per per­son for sausage siz­zle and game.

Any­one in­ter­ested in com­ing along should call Sandy on 0488 754 184 or ring the club on 4946 7656 and leave a mes­sage.

Busi­ness house bowls was can­celled last Wed­nes­day due to the weather.

Cham­pi­onship games will soon be un­der way, so please keep check­ing the no­tice board for when your games have been drawn.
