Ken­ton-on-Sea Bowl­ing Club

Three of our lady teams par­tic­i­pated in the Kowie Ladies Clas­sic last week. They all re­turned with glow­ing re­ports about the or­gan­i­sa­tion, cater­ing and ca­ma­raderie. Lit­tle was said about their bowl­ing achieve­ments?

Last week’s ac­tion cen­tred around the Moore Shield and Colleen Timm com­pe­ti­tions held at our club on Satur­day. The men’s B team scored a nar­row 16-17 win over Kowie B. Our men’s A team man­aged to peel a hard-fought game against Port Al­fred A. Af­ter two rounds our Ken­ton side leads the Moore Shield with an ag­gre­gate score of 5 (shot profit -9) fol­lowed by Kowie on 4 (shot profit +12). Our ladies’ B team beat Kowie B 30-8 and the A team beat Port Al­fred A 25-15. Our ladies are still the year-to-date lead­ers in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Last Fri­day’s at­ten­dance draw was for­feited by Trevor Col­lett and the jack­pot in­creases to R900. It is PT Trips this Fri­day with the steak braai to fol­low. The evening is usu­ally well sup­ported and prob­a­bil­ity of the R900 be­ing won is quite high. Make sure you at­tend. Du­ties for the week May 22-28: Tabs – Lot­tie Brink, Bar – Mick Carle and John Home­wood. Events May 18-24: May 19 – PT Trips and Steak Braai, May 20 – GBS Mixed Fours, May 24 – Doris Ford at Ken­ton. Birth­days May 18-24: May 18 – Pa­tri­cia Greig.

Kowie Bowl­ing Club

Last Tues­day was SPAR Day and we wel­comed Al­lan Free­man from Gonu­bie who had ar­rived with the ladies team which is skipped by his wife Mau­reen, as well as one of the Port El­iz­a­beth teams who ar­rived later in the af­ter­noon.

We took to the green and Rob Owsley’s form of late put his team on top. Rob’s team of Dave Tyrrell, Ron­nie Smith and Ger­ald Mills beat Al­lan Free­man’s team of fours 10 points and shot profit of 17. The run­ner-up was Dick Schu­ur­man’s team of trips who beat John Hub­bard’s team. The Spar vouch­ers were pre­sented to Rob’s team.

Our Jean Louw Ladies’ Clas­sic took place the past week and we were very lucky that the rain held off un­til the tour­na­ment was fin­ished. We would like to thank all the clubs who sup­ported our tour­na­ment. The win­ners who won R1 000 each came from Gonu­bie. The team was Faith Hayi­dakis, Margi Hobbs, Sy­bil Clarke and Wendy Benetello. The run­ner-up was Mau­reen Free­man’s team also from Gonu­bie.

We would like to thank our spon­sors, the Louw fam­ily, VW Mar­ket Square Port Al­fred and the busi­nesses in town for their very gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship.

Jo­nine McFar­lane thanks the club mem­bers who worked so hard to make this tour­na­ment the suc­cess it was.

On Satur­day our teams went to Ken­ton to play in the Moore Shield for the men. Our men lost both their matches, and the ladies played the Colleen Timm and won one and lost one.

At the club the tabs-in played for the Court­yard Vouch­ers. This was won by Dick Schu­ur­man, Dave Ar­ni­son (a vis­i­tor from Sizella in KwaZulu-Natal) and Rob Walker.

The fourth voucher was a lucky draw and Michael van der Sandt, who was the run­ner-up team’s skip, won the voucher. Du­ties for week May 22-28 : Greens – (Roll) Michael van der Sandt, (Mark) Peter Ford and Ivo Chun­net, Tabs – (Cash) Louise Flem­ming, Bar – Stephen Min­naar and Michael van der Sandt.
