Next Wed­nes­day we will join the ladies of the Bowl­ing Club for our so­cial bowls.

Just a note from Bowls Vic­to­ria - there has been con­fu­sion on the navy slacks with VLBA lo­gos. These gar­ment can be worn un­til the end of the 2013-2014 sea­son, they will then have to be re­placed.

●●● Tocumwal Wed­nes­day the 14th, 10 ladies bowlers played scroungers with the win­ner be­ing Ch­eryl Towns­ing and the run­ner up be­ing J Gil­son.

The ladies also started their tour­na­ments be­gin­ning with the 100-up hand­i­cap event, with the first round win­ners in the morn­ing be­ing Mavis Barrie, Gail (Storm Girl) Welsh, Shirley Dean and Anne Read pro­gress­ing to round two in the af­ter­noon with round two win­ners be­ing An­drea Brown, Gail Welsh, Shirley Dean and Effie Ea­ton.

Thurs­day so­cial bowls saw the numbers dwin­dle with some late with­drawal of teams in the morn­ing in the end only five bowlers took to the green to play 20 ends of scroungers, with vis­it­ing bowler Kevin Har­ri­son from Sca­manda in Tas­ma­nia be­ing the win­ner on 37 points from Lau­rie Deering 30 point, Pete Dy­hin 27 points, John Scott 15 points and Bob Adams on 11 points.

Satur­day 48 bowlers boarded the bus and headed over to Rich River to play a prac­tice match.

Un­for­tu­nately Rich River came out on top at the end of the day win­ning by about 20 shots over­all, with the best rink on the day go­ing to Tocumwal in M Sz­a­bos rink.

All the bowlers en­joyed the Rich River hos­pi­tal­ity and had a good time.

Mon­day Morn­ing In­door bowls with the usual three mats and three games of seven ends to be played.

With the day’s win­ners be­ing Barry Cock­ayne, San­dra McLean, Joan Holmes and Keith Styles who is a vis­it­ing bowler from WA.

Run­ners-up on a count-back went to Alan Mclean, Pete Dy­hin and Therese Man­nix, who bowled very well. ●●● Ber­ri­gan There was a good roll- out for the first club event of the year last week­end – the men’s hand­i­cap sin­gles.

The first of the semi­fi­nals held on Sun­day saw Spiro Van­gelovski de­feat Matt Hansen.

The sec­ond semi-fi­nal saw promis­ing young bowler Nathan San­ders take on Dar­ron Fru­end.

Dar­ron showed the ben­e­fit of his ex­pe­ri­ence to win the match but Nathan showed some prom­ise and will have learnt a lot about sin­gles play.

In the fi­nal Spiro Van­gelovski was too con­sis­tent for Dar­ron Fru­end, win­ning 25-12.

The weather and an im­mac­u­lately pre­pared green made for a great week­end of bowls.

Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon so­cial bowls is con­tin­u­ing with rea­son­able turnouts which is pleas­ing to see.

For the next two Wed­nes­days start­ing at 5.30pm, spe­cial coach­ing and bowls eti­quette ses­sions will be held and all bowlers, new and old, are en­cour­aged to at­tend.

It is great to see some new bowlers around the club and some ad­vice and en­cour­age­ment will help them feel wel­come.

Ber­ri­gan bowlers will visit Walla Walla on a good­will trip this Satur­day 24 Septem­ber.

The day will cost $20 for a bus trip, two meals and a full day of bowls.

The bus will leave at 9am sharp from Spor­ties Ber­ri­gan.
