Ev­ery­one is most wel­come to come along and cheer our teams on.

More suc­cess for Chris Philpot.

On Sun­day at Kil­more Bowls Club, Chris won the Cen­tral Goul­burn Mur­ray Re­gion Men’s State Sin­gles Event.

This win pro­gresses him to the Sta­tion Cham­pi­ons Week at Bendigo in April where win­ners can progress to a Na­tional Ti­tle. Not just a great coach Chris.

The Ladies Triples fi­nals were held this week with a win to Effie Ea­ton, An­drea Brown and Judy Harvie over Ch­eryl Towns­ing, Wendy Da­ley and Aileen Phe­lan.

The Men’s Triples fi­nals were played on Sun­day with the win­ners Harry Mal­loy, Garry Beer and John Wil­son pre­vail­ing over Col Far­rar, Ross Job and Ian Cameron. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all our win­ners.

So­cial bowls are played on Tues­days at 9.30am. Tocumwal wel­comes all bowlers to their so­cial events.

En­try forms are avail­able at Re­cep­tion or ring 03 5874 9111 for the Al­lan Seamer Tour­na­ment and the Easter Tour­na­ment in April.

Don’t for­get Bare­foot Bowls on Mon­days at 5.45 for 6.30pm.

Only about five weeks to go. How quickly the weeks fly past.

Jer­ilderie In a ter­rific end to the home and away sea­son Jer­ilderie won all three rinks against Nu­murkah at home on Satur­day.

What a great re­sult, fin­ish­ing on top of the di­vi­sion three lad­der.

Terry Chap­lains rink won by three, Lucy Gur­ci­ullo's rink had the best re­sult win­ning by 12 and Col Bryce’s rink won by six.

The day was topped off by an en­joy­able din­ner af­ter­wards at the sports club.

Bare­foot bowls con­tin­ues on Wed­nes­day evenings at 6pm roll up, all wel­come.

Jer­ilderie pen­nant will be play­ing Tocumwal at Ber­ri­gan on Satur­day in the qual­i­fy­ing fi­nal, Cocky to sup­ply the all day suck­ers.

Ber­ri­gan The pen­nant sea­son came to a dis­ap­point­ing end for all Ber­ri­gan teams on the week­end with again none be­ing able to break through for a win and none qual­i­fy­ing for the fi­nals.

That said, for the Satur­day teams in par­tic­u­lar, it has been a sea­son of con­sol­i­da­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence with all the new bowlers much im­proved for the ex­pe­ri­ence.

With some ad­di­tional depth and ex­pe­ri­ence, both the Di­vi­sion Two and Di­vi­sion Four teams should be in a po­si­tion to im­prove next sea­son.

The chal­lenge ahead for the Fri­day team is to ex­pand the play­ing base.

The Fri­day team put in a very cred­itable ef­fort against Nu­murkah Golf at home nar­rowly de­feated 56 to 74 (0-16).

Clare Har­vey and her rink of Val Daly, Garry Seamer and Mary Curtin were pipped at the post 21 to 22 while Elaine Hawkins lost 18 to 24 and Nan Dart went down 17 to 28.

The Fri­day team fin­ished in sixth place – not a bad ef­fort at all.

The Satur­day Di­vi­sion Two and Di­vi­sion Four teams both hosted Fin­ley on the week­end and both were un­able to come away with a win to fin­ish the sea­son.

The Di­vi­sion Two team took on a highly mo­ti­vated Fin­ley team need­ing a win to make the fi­nals.

While the Ber­ri­gan team put on a much bet­ter per­for­mance than it had the three weeks prior, it was not enough to up­set the Fin­ley’s fi­nals plans, los­ing 78 to 106.

Rick Brad­bury’s rink of Garry Seamer, Rachel Head and Clare Har­vey was the only win­ners on the day 27 to 18.

David Reynold­son, a late call up to skip, put in an ad­mirable ef­fort be­fore suc­cumb­ing 23 to 27, Paul Glanvill with an in­ex­pe­ri­enced team, lost 17 to 26 while Matt Hansen was given a bowls les­son de­feated 11 to 35.

The Di­vi­sion Four team held onto sixth place for the sea­son.

It was a sim­i­lar story in Di­vi­sion Four where an ex­pe­ri­enced and fi­nals-bound Fin­ley were too strong for Ber­ri­gan, with Ber­ri­gan los­ing 20 to 66.

David O’Dwyer lost 12 to 33 and Bill Daly lost 8 to 33.

The Di­vi­sion Four team will all be bet­ter for the ex­pe­ri­ence next year. Both Fin­ley teams stayed to cel­e­brate the sea­son with a bar­be­cue af­ter the game.

While Ber­ri­gan was un­able to make the fi­nals, it will host the first round of the Di­vi­sion Three and Four fi­nals this Satur­day.

Be­ing cho­sen to host the fi­nals re­flects well on both the vol­un­teers who have dra­mat­i­cally im­proved the greens and the top-class cater­ing team at the club.

The Men’s pairs cham­pi­onship came to a conclusion last week with David Wood­ward and Matt Hansen de­feat­ing David Fox and David Reynold­son in the fi­nal 22 to 17.

Wood­ward and Hansen pulled away to a 21 to 10 lead with three ends to play be­fore Fox and Reynold­son came storm­ing home, al­most pinch­ing the match on the last end.

In the ear­lier semi-fi­nals Wood­ward/Hansen def. Beard/McVicar 13-16 and Fox/Reynold­son def. Glanvill/Brad­bury 17 to 16.

Wood­ward and Hansen will go on to play in the Di­vi­sion Men’s Pairs Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons event on 17 March.

The Open Triples club cham­pi­onship will be played on Satur­day March 2 2019.

For­mat is 12 ends of 3-bowl triples. All bowls mem­bers el­i­gi­ble to en­ter.

En­tries for the Garry McLen­nan 3-bowl triples tour­na­ment to be held on Satur­day, March 30 2019 are also start­ing to come in.

The Club Pre­sen­ta­tion night will be held on Satur­day 6 April – 6:30pm for 7pm start fol­low­ing the Club Mixed Pairs cham­pi­onship ear­lier that af­ter­noon.

Fin­ley RS The fi­nal home and away round of both Fri­day and Satur­day pen­nant held last week was not a great way to fin­ish of the year’s sea­son, how­ever de­spite the de­feats all teams re­main in place for next sea­son.

Nu­murkah Golf had a win over the Fri­day pen­nant team and Di­vi­sion One at home to Ba­rooga Sports came out with two points cour­tesy of Ian Smethurst’s rink post­ing a last gasp win.

Di­vi­sion Three trav­elled to Co­bram and didn’t fare much bet­ter with some close losses but an over­all de­feat.

Fin­ley RSC BC will be host­ing pen­nant fi­nals this week:

Fri­day: Di­vi­sion One — Co­bram v Nu­murkah Golf, qual­i­fy­ing fi­nal and Tocumwal Golf v Ba­rooga Sports, elim­i­na­tion fi­nal; Di­vi­sion Two — Pi­cola v Co­bram-qual­i­fy­ing fi­nal, Ba­rooga Sports v Tocumwal Golf, elim­i­na­tion fi­nal.

Satur­day: Di­vi­sion One — Wunghnu v Ba­rooga Sports, qual­i­fy­ing fi­nal; Strath­mer­ton v Co­bram, elim­i­na­tion fi­nal.

Last Tues­day was the start of Ladies 100 up matches with Ofe­lia Cochrane def. Noela Thomas; Karen Pea­cock def. Robyn Ferry; Kerry Turner def. Iris Reynolds.

Next Tues­day Lyn Donkin v Carmel Sut­cliffe will com­plete the B grade fi­nal and Ofe­lia will take on Kerry in the 100 up.

Other 100 up games will be fi­nalised later in the week.

Thurs­day saw 26 teams com­pet­ing in the Men’s Trade day with teams from within our Di­vi­sion and Ruther­glen BC send­ing a rep­re­sen­ta­tive also.

Ray Nye’s Ba­rooga Sports triples team took out the first prize with run­ner up Keith Berger skip­ping a composite Pi­cola/Nu­murkah Golf team.

Other best game win­ners were Brian Gen­tle (Nu­murkah) and Jeff Pea­cock (RSC).

Two games of the RSC Men’s Pairs were com­pleted on Sun­day with Archie West/Roy John­son def. Bruce Ferry/Neville In­gram; Al­lan Thomas/Peter Wil­son def. David West/Jimmy Ma­her.

Fur­ther games to be com­pleted next Sun­day.

The chook run was also held on Sun­day with Char­lie Pisani, Shar­ren Pisani and Kerry Turner tak­ing home the prizes.

Don’t for­get it’s on again next Sun­day; all you have to do is turn up at the bowls greens at 10.45am for an 11am start.
