Tuesday 29th May: A good turn up at bowls today and great to see the return of some of our members who have been absent either due to health matters or holidaying. Format for play 3 games of 2 bowls Triples, 18 ends. A game of Fours with Dianne Kiss playing “swinger lead”, 14 ends. A convincing win to Sandra Leisemann, Wendy Brand and Elizabeth Kelly 25 v Francis Betar, Sheril Johnson and Julie Kennedy 12. Very impressive since Sandra, Wendy and Liz are amongst those bowlers who have been absent, demonstrates what good bowlers these ladies are. Bev Stephens, Lily Smith and Dale Winter proved to be too strong an opposition against Bette Saillard, Robyn Webster and Loretta Baker winning by 8 shots, 19 v 11. A close contest between Bev Dunn, Dorothy Thompson and Jill McBride16 v Judi Polak, Lyn Nightingale and Jo Younghusband 14. The Fours game resulted in a win for Dianne Kiss, Wilma Drake, Christine Fossey and Lynne Green 17 v Dianne, Pauline Perry, Jeanette Emmett and Deyonne Page 9. Winners of the day with the highest margin were Sandra Leisemann, Wendy Brand and Liz Kelly. A “Spider” was held prior to play, this was won by Sheril Johnson. All money raised from this is donated to the free clinic bus.
Our lucky raffle winner this week was Robyn Webster. Thanks Myall Bistro and Café for supporting our club with your donation of the raffle prize.
Thursday 31st May: No bowls played.
Robyn Beaumont, Maynie Roberts and Kayelene Pearson competed in the Newcastle District Triples Competition held 28th – 30th May. What ” a tough ask ” was this competition. Two games played each day just a break for lunch.
Unlucky if your morning contest was a long one, not much time left for lunch. Congratulations to our Tea Gardens team Runners Up. Unfortunately defeated by our “arch rivals” from Lemon Tree Passage 24 v 17. This is a first for a Tea Gardens team to achieve such an honour.
Continuing on the glory trail, following this competition Robyn Beaumont travelled down to Warilla to compete in the NSW Indoor Singles Competition. Robyn won her section and proceeded to the knockout, here she bowled to the last 8 bowlers. On her 3rd game she lost to Sarah Boddington, a NSW state bowler. Officially Robyn finished equal 5th and has qualified for the Australian Indoor Singles Competition to be held at Tweed Heads in August. Great bowling Robyn, what an advocate for our club.
