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.

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.
