Karuah RSL Men’s Bowls Club
A VERY mixed bag for bowlers at Karuah. The weather finally cleared, the greens dried out (a bit) and bowls and bowlers again graced the greens.
We had a Ladies pennant team have a big win at home, a mid week Men’s team pipped at the post away at Soldiers Point, followed by the same thing happening to our Ladies team.
Both Men’s Teams had good wins at home against Lemon Tree Passage, and away at Stockton.
Pennants aside, the Men’s social comp got serious with some very high standard bowls played.
Ben and Trevor played above themselves to beat Gordon and Bill on the last end, while all the other games were likewise close and very competitive.
The Club Championship pairs comp saw the inner gorillas get a run and half of the Clubs Men’s Pairs teams were eliminated after some excellent games.
The teams that are left play off over the next few weeks, immortality beckoning for the eventual winners with their name to be posted up on the honour boards in glory for evermore.
More social and pennant games are scheduled.
Club champions like Gordon Latimore and Stewart Bagnall, shown in the photo (where Gordon is about to deliver another winning bowl, while Stewie walks away from his mat in disgust!) will have to step up again.
The chips (and bowls) will fall where they may, let’s just hope that they fall right next to the Jack.
Great bowling can still be watched from the verandah at the RSL Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons games, vocal and parochial crowds have been increasing each week supporting their local teams.
If you are brave enough to try something new come along Sunday mornings to try a free beginners session or a social game for $5.00.
Don’t stop at watching on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, get your name in by 9.30am and play at 10.00am.
See you at Karuah.
