Nambucca Men’s Bowls Club


ANOTHER weekend of championships down.

Three more to go and they will be finished for the year and with COVID, lockdowns, floods and only one green for the most part of the year that’s not a bad effort.

Last Saturday the quarter finals were played for the mixed fours.

There were a few upsets, a few touch ups and a few that ended the way you might expect.

On Sunday the semi-finals were played in slightly better conditions than Saturday with less wind.

The team of Ian (the Drum) Poletti, Gloria Richardson and Pam and Mike James defeated Janis Cedelland, Sandra Secold, Aaron and Doug Cedelland 17 -16.

Doug led from the first bowl to the second last bowl when Drum drew the shot to win the game.

It sure kept the crowd entertained.

It was also great to see the Cedo family playing together.

In the other game Danny Curran, Mark Blackford, Margret Duffus and Nerida Blackford defeated Pat Smith (who had to skip because John Rowdy Reynolds had to work), super sub Barry Redman, Rosemary Dugdale and Dallas Nancarrow 23-11.

The final should be a cracker next Saturday.

On Sunday at 1.00pm the mixed pairs start, so instead of sitting at home watching TV all weekend get down the club and cheer on your favourite side.

Hopefully Mr Doom and Gloom gets the weather right like he did on the weekend for a change.

Don’t forget the A.G.M. on 12 December at 11.00am as well as the Xmas triples on 18 of December with a 10.30am start.
