Tea Gardens Men’s Bowling Club

Bowlers from the Tea Gardens Men’s Bowling Club in festive gear at the last event for the year.



Today was the last day of organised bowls for 2021 and a great turnout of 57 bowlers took to the greens.

Fifty-seven players were the most seen all year and hopefully without COVID restrictions we can maintain and increase that number in 2022.

Today’s game was turn around triples over 12 ends with our Christmas lunch following play.

For lunch, bowlers enjoyed a wonderful beef burger courtesy of the Club President, Noel Jackson and then a plentiful supply of succulent prawns.

The winners on the grass were Keith Smith, Bryan McPhie and Geoff Page with a score of 10.

The winners on the synthetic with a score of 9 were Bob Peady, John Yabsley and Doug Andrews.

The results today were decided by the ‘lowest winning score’.

The Garden Eatery voucher was won by Steve Marsh.

Our thanks to the Garden Eatery for sponsoring this prize.

In keeping with the spirit of the season many players turned up in appropriate Christmas attire to add to the carnival atmosphere for the last bowling day this year.

On a more sobering note, I record the resignation of popular Secretary Gary Wynne after many competent years in the job.

Thanks, Gary, for a job well done.

We have a new secretary elected with Doug Andrews putting his hand up to take over from Gary.

Doug will be officially in the position following the January committee meeting.

Thanks to Doug for stepping up into the position.

The first Club Championship competition for the New Year will be the Club Major Singles.

It would be great to see a good representation of new bowlers nominated for this event as it is a wonderful training experience bound to improve your game.

Nominations are now being invited with entries closing on 14 January.

Organised bowls resumes on Wednesday 12 January.

May I wish my readers and bowlers everywhere, the compliments of the season and a safe and healthy New Year.
