Kowie Bowl­ing Club IT was an­other busy week­end for the Kowie Bowls Club when they hosted the East­ern Ar­eas (EA) men’s fours com­pe­ti­tion.

Kowie en­tered four teams and two of these pro­duced good bowls to win their re­spec­tive sec­tions.

Jac­ques Krige, Rob Owsley, Pi­eter Stegmann and Neville West­cott were in top form through­out and won their two games com­fort­ably. Sat­is­fy­ing win­ners of an­other sec­tion was the team skipped by Chris Avis, Siegie Rohrs and ju­niors Allen Sher­ri­dan and Dave Thomas. They also pro­duced fine bowls to win all three of their matches.

The fi­nals of the four sec­tion win­ners will take place at Kowie this week­end.

While the men were com­pet­ing in this com­pe­ti­tion, the ladies played their EA fours at Port Al­fred with a dis­ap­point­ing en­try of only four teams. Kowie en­tered one team skipped by Jackie Kriel with Dot Rohrs, Judy Hunter and ju­nior Me­gan Kriel.

They started the week­end on a high note and set tongues wag­ging with an ex­cel­lent win over the pow­er­ful Albany team skipped by Gwen Bartlett. But they were un­able to main­tain this and lost their next two games.

Dur­ing the week, Kowie’s two men’s teams had a good af­ter­noon when they played in the Ho­race Pur­don com­pe­ti­tion at Port Al­fred, win­ning both their matches. These two vic­to­ries has put Kowie com­fort­ably ahead on the points ta­ble with 10 plus 31.

Mike Beau­mont, Dave Tyrrell and Ron­nie Smith had a close game against Ken­ton be­fore tak­ing the hon­ours at 19-16. Siegie Rohrs, Rob Walker and Dave Thomas had a more com­fort­able af­ter­noon when they won 20-10, also against Ken­ton.

In the Sue Pur­don com­pe­ti­tion, played at the same time, Kowie’s ladies did not have a happy af­ter­noon.

Judy Hunter, Mirielle McPhee, who was later re­placed by Jackie Kriel fol­low­ing a knee in­jury, and Sally Wormald went down 19 - 15 to Ken­ton. Jo­nine McFar­lane’s team of Michelle Row­ley and Me­gan Kriel did not have a happy af­ter­noon and lost badly to Port Al­fred.

On the do­mes­tic scene, mem­bers com­peted in the Kenny’s Sports Bar-spon­sored af­ter­noon. This was won by John Hub­bard, Trevor Lentz, Theresa Coetser and Andy Stu­art

The Me­gabucks com­pe­ti­tion was won by Stan Long, Don Kelly and Gill Turner with the com­fort­able score of 10 plus 8. They beat Jackie Kriel, Tony Brown and Linda May.

John Hub­bard was again in good form when he won the Tabs-in af­ter­noon with 2 plus 14. He was well sup­ported by Lawrie May and Lenny Clarke. Du­ties for next week July 10-16 are:

Rolling – Siegie Rohrs, Mark­ing – Bob Ford and AN Other, Tabs money – Jo­nine McFar­lane, Bar – Dot and Siegie Rohrs. Port Al­fred Bowl­ing and Cro­quet Club The Radue com­pe­ti­tion was played on Tues­day June 27 and was won by Chris Ar­mitage, Bob Hobbs and Phil Tay­lor with Dave Freeme and his team be­ing run­ners-up.

How­ever, we can­not be com­pla­cent as con­tin­u­ously ris­ing prices are a con­stant threat to our fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity. Our AGM no­ti­fi­ca­tion has been pub­lished and the call for nom­i­na­tions for 2017-18 com­mit­tee mem­bers has been posted on our no­tice board.

Last Wed­nes­day’s tabs-in saw the “re­turn” of Tim “The-tool-man” Brad­bury. He an­nounced his in­ten­tions very clearly by skip­ping the win­ning team in the day’s Tabs-in Com­pe­ti­tion with a shot profit of +4. All the games were closely con­tested with two peeled games and the run­ners-up won with a shot profit of +2. The prize money went to buy­ing a round of drinks.

Last Thurs­day saw the first round of the Club League. It was run in con­junc­tion with our nor­mal Supa Thurs­day com­pe­ti­tion. It was the largest turnout of play­ers on a Thurs­day in the last two years! The prize money was a re­spectable R160 for the win­ning team.

The buzz in the club­house after the game was en­joyed by all. Westie’s Warriors (skipped by Dave West) were the win­ners on the day with a score of a per­fect 10 (shot profit +10). They are also the lead­ers in the Club League fol­lowed by Rob’s Rob­bers (skipped by Roy Wilkins), Ge­orge’s Growlers (skipped by Ge­orge Chowles) and Bill’s Bad­dies (skipped by Bill Bed­ford).

It was an un­lucky Fri­day for AJ Tun­mer as she for­feited the R800 jackpot by not be­ing present when her num­ber was drawn.

Next week Fri­day is Fab­u­lous Feast Fri­day which is sure to be well sup­ported. Westie is serv­ing Gourmet Burg­ers with Chips for R25. For the unini­ti­ated; Gourmet Burg­ers are burg­ers which you build your­self from a bread roll and meat patty sup­ple­mented by a va­ri­ety of in­gre­di­ents avail­able on the kitchen counter.

The at­ten­dance draw jackpot has in­creased to R900. Be sure to at­tend as the prom­ise of a great meal to­gether with the pos­si­bil­ity of win­ning the R900 is sure to at­tract a great crowd.
