Kowie Bowl­ing Club

On the last Tues­day of the month, we played the Megabucks com­pe­ti­tion with a good turnout and Keith Kolesky’s team of Don Kelly and Rob Sandi­lands de­feated Jac­ques Krige’s team by a full house 10 points and a 10-shot profit.

The run­ner-up was Mike Long’s team of fours af­ter Rod Grad­well’s team had man­aged to share the first skin with the final score 9 points to 1 and a pos­i­tive shot profit of 5. So the “big bucks” were handed over to the Kolesky team.

On Thurs­day, there was an­other good turnout for bowls in blus­tery weather. We had a few one-sided games with win­ner Lee Botma’s team of trips, Ron­nie Smith and Bryan Burger, de­feat­ing Don Arm­strong with a full house 10 points and a big shot profit.

The run­ner-up was Keith Kolesky’s trip who de­feated Michael van der Sandt’s trip also by a full house 10 points with just a 2-shot profit less. In this com­pe­ti­tion there is only one win­ner who takes home the “big bucks”.

In a third game we had a 9 poin­ter where the first skin was shared with the scores be­ing very close.

On Satur­day, we played our Guido’s-spon­sored com­pe­ti­tion with a good turnout which gives us a to­tal of about 120 pairs of feet over the greens for the week (this in­cludes bounce on Fri­day af­ter­noons).

Mike Beau­mont’s team of Don Kelly and Rob Walker were in dev­as­tat­ing form to take out Mike Tom­lin­son’s team of trips by 2 points and a huge shot profit (too em­bar­rassed to men­tion).

Jac­ques Krige’s team were also in good form to de­feat Pi­eter Stegman’s team for the run­ners-up po­si­tion. Mike Beau­mont was pre­sented with the Guido’s vouch­ers while the re­main­ing four games were pretty evenly matched. We wel­comed Jonty and Judy Alexan­der to bowls, this be­ing Judy’s first out­ing on the bowl­ing green since mov­ing to Bathurst.

We were root­ing for our ladies’ team of trips – Jackie Kriel, Judy Hunter and Me­gan Kriel, as well as Jane Ar­mitage’s PA team who played in the EP Trips final in Som­er­set East last week­end. Kriel won one of her three games over the week­end and Ar­mitage won two of her games. The final was con­tested by the teams from West­ern Sub­urbs and the Woods but at this stage I do not have a re­sult. You will have seen it in the Her­ald on Wed­nes­day morn­ing. Our two EA men’s teams from Ken­ton and Al­bany did not have a very suc­cess­ful cam­paign over the week­end.

The club AGM takes place on Fri­day Septem­ber 15 at 6pm in the club­house.

Du­ties for week Septem­ber 11 to 17: Greens – (Roll) Michael van der Sandt, (Mark) Keith Kolesky and Rod Allin, Tabs – (Cash) Gill Turner, Bar – Gill Turner and Tony Brown.
