Tea Gardens Men’s Bowling Club
Vale Vaughn Bryant: It is with some sadness that I report the passing of another of our bowlers, Vaughn Bryant.
It’s worth it for your business.
Phone us – (02) 4981 8882.

Vaughn, as he was known, passed away recently and will be missed from the bowling fraternity, especially those playing social bowls.
Vaughn played at Pennant standard before joining us at Tea Gardens BC but time and arthritis played havoc with his hands.
So keen was he that he utilized a bowling arm and learned to play left-handed when his right hand made it difficult.
He will be missed.
8 July: Thirty-eight bowlers attended today for more “unofficial” games of Pairs.
Although no prizes were on offer, the bowling was keen, competitive and most enjoyable.
Next week, weather permitting, the format will revert to Nominated Triples which will hopefully attract a larger field.
10 July: A small band of bowling “junkies” turned out for a game today with most playing on the grass green.
It was slow going but our greenkeeper, Steve Green, now has this surface running very true.
Next season our grass green will be the envy of other Clubs.
11 July: Today the uncompleted second round of the Club Championship Pairs was played with six teams competing.
The results from today were as follows.
Jeff Baker and Ron Green defeated the defending champions, Ross Barry and Danny Johnson 25 to 19
Leigh Hunt and Neil Kibble defeated Noel Jackson and Greg Smith 23 to 15
Stew Sturrock and an in-form Luke Gliwa def John Moore and Gary Wynne 16 to 13
12 July: The quarter-final round of the Club Championship Pairs was played today with some surprising results.
In a bit of a turn-up, Bob Peady and Doug Naylor def Ron Webster and Greg Pearson 19 – 17
2018 champions, Peter Gurney and John Parkinson had a real shock finally defeating Dave Garcia and Bob Weir in a close one, 16 – 14
