Preparation Despite the Heat at Karuah

DESPITE losing a day’s bowling to the heat, the club’s preparation for the coming Pennant Season continues at Karuah RSL Bowling Club.  

The Club made a courageous decision last week, in the interest of Health and Safety, to cancel play for a day due to the heat.

Although not universally popular, the condition of the bowlers and the potential of harm won out on the day. Congratulations to club management for exercising their duty of care so well.

Two inter-club visits have been held since my last report, with the club hosting a contingent from Forster and heading to East Maitland.

Although it were two overall losses to Karuah, the competition was strong, the company was excellent, and skills improved all round.

The term early to ripen, early to spoil has been used and we hope to ripen just as the pennant season starts!

The Ladies RSL Bowls Club are playing in the district fours competition at the moment and we have a young guns team in the open division playing this week, good luck ladies.

Junior development continues unchanged and introductory sessions are still being held each Sunday morning for anyone of any age who would like to try our great sport.

Tuesday and Thursday  games are still being held (heat allowing) with names by 9.30am and first bowls at 10am.

You would know if you have read my reports that I always say that there are many reasons to take up and play our great sport.

I became aware of another reason in the last two weeks.

One of our ladies, away on holidays, was visiting a South Australian wine producing area.

Having had a busy afternoon of visiting wineries and tasting their wine, she stopped in (driven by her husband, who in the interest of road safety was abstaining) at her last planned stop of the afternoon.

More wine was tried, photos with the staff taken and purchases made.

Next morning, with a slight headache and a puzzled look, she told her (clear headed and somewhat righteous) husband, “Oh no, I think I have lost my purse!”

Just then she received a phone message from the Women’s Bowls NSW Association to say that her purse had been found and was waiting for her at the last winery.

The purse duly recovered and profuse thanks given, it was realised that the winery staff, trying to contact her and unable to find her phone number, had rung the number on her Women’s Bowls NSW members card.

They, bless them, had passed on the message.

Just another reason to be a bowler! See you at Karuah.
