5 OCTOBER: The spring weather continued today with 46 players competing in the usual Wednesday Nominated Triples event.
The wind was quite strong from the south-west making bowling very interesting.
Both greens were in use with the grass green coming back up to speed.
It was a pairs game that won the money with popular Mr. Nice Guy, Peter Jones partnering a new member, Greg Pearson late from the Tuggeranong Vikings Club in Canberra, to take top money on +42.
In second place was the team of David Garcia, Peter Gurney and Bill Whalan.
They finished with a very creditable +31.
Lucky losers were; Harry Haubin/George Winter, Peter King and Doug Naylor.
Congratulations to the Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club with their annual “Oncology Day” held today.
This was their annual fundraiser for the Oncology Unit at the Mater Hospital in Newcastle.
The event was well supported by both Clubs and the wider communities of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.
They raised a staggering $6,000.00. A mighty effort!
Tea Gardens Country Club Bowling Club played host to a bowling contingent from Morisset BC today with a friendly Mixed Triples event played. Almost 50 bowlers took part.
The winners were; Michael Mortimer and Jenny Sinclair from Morisset and Ross Barry.
In the Quarter-finals of the NDBA Champion of Champion Pairs played today at Lambton BC, Tea Gardens Pairs Champions, Jeff Baker and Steve Pell were narrowly beaten by the strong Raymond Terrace combination of M. Abel and M. Baus.
I am told that our players gave a good account of themselves and were far from disgraced.
It’s great to see our Club represented at this high level. Well done!
The Morisset bowlers combined with the Tea Gardens Sunday Bowlers today to enjoy another day of bowling fellowship and friendship.
In beautiful sunny weather 46 players took part and it was a combination team of; Bob Wright and Rose Courtney, from Morisset, and David Williams from Tea Gardens that had the lowest winning score to win the money.
The Morisset bowlers enjoyed a barbecue lunch from cooks Ron Green and Barry Goode before heading home.
I’m sure they enjoyed themselves!
Next weekend 15/16 October the rescheduled Palm Lake Mixed Pairs will be held.
There are already 20 teams entered which will be heartening to the organisers.
With $2,300.00 in prize money there should be some entertaining bowls played.
Entries are still being taken for the Club Mixed Pairs Tournament the following weekend.
At the time of writing, only 7 teams have entered.
Do not miss out!
