Half way mark of ac­cu­mu­la­tor

Southern Riverina news - - Sport -

Fin­ley Last Thurs­day win­ners were Ash Haines and Nan Smith with the run­ners-up be­ing Billy Smith and Alan Cowan.

Keno win­ners were Steve Beck and Tracy Miles.

We have reached the half way mark now as Sun­day was the fifth week of the spon­sored ac­cu­mu­la­tor event and the win­ners this round were Norm Wil­son and Kathy Wil­liams.

Run­ners-up this week were Mick Chap­lin and Di Re­tal­lick.

Ash Haines had a lucky week as he was also this week’s win­ner of our lucky num­ber mem­ber’s draw. Well done Ash.

The wet weather was loom­ing on Sun­day, but man­aged to hold off un­til noon, al­though the day was very windy.

Some keen bowl­ing was seen this week on the greens.

This week’s coach­ing clinic, to be held on Fri­day, will again be run from 3pm till 4pm.

The club is keen to en­cour­age new and or young bowlers to come along and play bowls, so if you would like to at­tend or you know of some­one that may want to come along, give us a call at the Bowlo, we would love to hear from you.

We have coaches to suit all ages and all lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence and if the ad­ver­tised time does not suit you, ar­range­ments can be made for a more suit­able time. Please talk to us about this.

Com­ing events: To­day is cards at 1.30pm, all wel­come.

Thurs­day bowls at 1pm, 3 x 8 ends, names in by 11am please, MDP or en­ter own team.

Meat raf­fle at 6pm. Coach­ing clinic at 3pm. Fri­day night raf­fles and mem­bers draw at 7.30pm.

This Sun­day will be the 6th week of the spon­sored ac­cu­mu­la­tor event.

Names in by 9.30am for 10.15am start.

Fish and prawn raf­fles and hot chook raf­fles fol­low bowls at 12.30pm and also the lucky num­ber mem­ber’s draw.

There are still a cou­ple more spots avail­able for the spring men’s fours tour­na­ment which will be held on Au­gust 13 and 14.

So if want to put a team in, we need your en­tries ASAP for this $6000 event.

Last word: The ‘fe­male bowler’ is an awe­some crea­ture. Her fa­nati­cism tran­scends even that of the bridge player.

The ‘disease’ how­ever is said to be ter­mi­nal. If she could, she would play six days a week.

Don’t ex­pect din­ner on bowl­ing days ei­ther - take-away is the only hope.

When she comes home it will take an hour to tell of the bril­liance of her plays.

But don’t think it has all just be­gun.

Anne Bo­leyn was once a pretty good bowler. That’s un­til they re­moved her head!
