Kowie Bowls Club On Tues­day this week we had a very good turn out with six rinks of fours play­ing. For­tu­nately, no ex­tras pitched as they would not have been able to fit in be­cause the greens had been marked for the Mini Dis­tricts com­pe­ti­tion that started on Fri­day. In a very one sided game Jac­ques Krige’s team of Don Mun­roe, Ger­ald Mills and Roy Reynolds trumped Pi­eter Stegmann’s team by a full house 10 points and plenty of shot profit to be pre­sented with the “Me­gabucks”. Look­ing at th­ese two teams on pa­per they were very evenly bal­anced with Pi­eter’s team not hav­ing an an­swer for any­thing the op­po­si­tion did. The run­ner up po­si­tion went to Lee Botma over Dick Schu­ur­man in an­other 10 pointer for the day. There was an­other 10 pointer on the day with the re­main­ing three games be­ing much tighter games.

Our club was a hive of ac­tiv­ity on Thurs­day with Jo­nine and her team spend­ing all day in the kitchen pre­par­ing meals for this week­end’s Men’s Mini Dis­tricts com­pe­ti­tion start­ing on Fri­day, they only came out of the kitchen after all the bowler had come off the greens. To­day we had an­other good turnout for our Ocean Bas­ket com­pe­ti­tion with a com­bi­na­tion of play on six rinks. We had pairs which was won by Tony Brown’s team of Len­nie Clark in de­feat­ing Peter Ford’s team by a full house 10 points and an 18 shot profit. The next win­ner was the trips com­pe­ti­tion with Dick Schu­u­ramn’s team of Jean Botma and Keith Ben­son de­feat­ing Bob Ford’s trip by eight points to two with a shot profit of nine. Then to­day we also gave a run­ner up prize which was won by De­lene Deenik’s trip of Sally Moffat and Roy Reynolds who de­feated Rob Owsleys trip by eight points to two with a shot profit of seven. All three teams re­ceived Ocean Bas­ket voucher in to­day’s com­pe­ti­tion, thank you to our spon­sors.

There was no club bowls on Satur­day af­ter­noon be­cause of the com­pe­ti­tion and some of our bowlers who were not on duty went and played at Port Al­fred Club. On Fri­day the “In­ter Dis­tricts” com­pe­ti­tion was played at our club from Fri­day to Mon­day lunch time with the seven dis­tricts be­ing Eastern Prov­ince, Fron­tier, East Lon­don Dis­tricts, Eastern Ar­eas, Mid­lands, Ciskei and North Eastern Dis­tricts. At the end day two [Round 3] EP were on top on 4.25 points and 103 shot profit fol­lowed by Fron­tier, East Lon­don and Eastern Ar­eas. Then at the end of day 3 [Round 5] there were some changes. Eastern Ar­eas were at the top on six points and 65 shot profit and fol­lowed by East Lon­don, Fron­tier and EP in that or­der. The news re­porter was on hand at the prize giv­ing will be writ­ing the full story. Du­ties for week Septem­ber 25 –Oc­to­ber 1: Greens : roll – Bob Ford. Mark – Ger­ald Mills and Pi­eter Stegmann; Tabs : cash – Jacky Wal­son; Bar : Stan Richter & Dave Tyrrell.

Ken­ton Bowl­ing Club

The past week was a quiet week, bowl­ing speak­ing. The ma­jor ac­tion was with our two mem­bers (Dave West and Brian Aldag) par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Men’s Mini-Dis­tricts Tour­na­ment held over the week­end. They had been se­lected for one of the Eastern Ar­eas teams. By go­ing to press the tour­na­ment was still in progress, so there is noth­ing to re­port.

Stom­pie Bellingan’s leg seems to have healed after the nasty ac­ci­dent two months ago where he frac­tured the fibula. This was ev­i­dent by him win­ning the Supa Thurs­day com­pe­ti­tion with a whop­ping shot profit of +20!

JP du Toit was the “un­lucky” num­ber drawn at the Fri­day night At­ten­dance Lucky Draw. He for­feited the R500 by not be­ing present. Next week’s Lucky Draw will be for R600.

Both Tim and Ivor are back home from a stint in hos­pi­tal. We are glad to hear that they are both on the mend. Tim and Rod­ney (the green­keep­ing team) were over­heard talk­ing after Tim’s re­turn. Rod­ney asked about the hos­pi­tal and things in gen­eral.

“The nurses are very good and so is the treat­ment,” came Tim’s re­ply, “But the food got a bit bor­ing.”

“What do you mean bor­ing?” asked Rod­ney.

“Well we had hag­gis for break­fast, hag­gis for lunch and then hag­gis again for supper,” said Tim.

“Well what did you ex­pect,” said Rod­ney, “you must have been in the Burns unit.”

Du­ties (Oc­to­ber 2-8): Tabs – Cecily Mas­sart, Bar – the Brown fam­ily. Events (Septem­ber 28 - Oc­to­ber 5): 30 – Colleen Timm at PA, 30 – Moore Shield at PA, 1 – GBS at Gra­ham­stown, 5 – Peg and Ho­race Pur­don at Kowie. Birthdays (Septem­ber 28 - Oc­to­ber 5): 29 - Tom Spence.
