Not sure about the mathematical skills of the Queensland mob called the Musgrave Hill Maulers and the Robina Rebels but the NSW teams of the Ballina RSL Sandflies and the Alstonville Mafia were dropped jawed when the overall score was announced at the first of the NSW Bed Bugs ‘v’ QLD Crutch Crabs State Of Origin at Musgrave Hill on Sunday. The main lad from the Maulers and with a name like Steve Feenary one should have been more aloof however due to the effects of the demon drink it was only noticed after the event that Steve had added in the other Maulers games that were being played beside the challenge games. This brought there overall score to beat us NSW lads by 32 to set the scoring standard at the next game being at the Alstonville Bowling Club on the 30th of November. With all jokes aside it was a top day with great company, greens and tucker that has set a standard of the highest degree. I just hope we can all match that as it was exceptional and many thanks to the Musgrave Hill Maulers for a top day. One now knows what happens when Chinese meals go in some people and while later that very criminating fart happens by chance which leaves a everyone on a 54 seater gasping like goldfish in a bowl. Well ofcause we cant mention names can we Preso Col but somewhere between the Gold Coast and Kingscliff turnoff, searching for that pocket of fresh air was at a premium. Great day and cant wait till the next game. Till next week take care fellas.

One thing I have learnt playing bowls is that a team on paper that looks like a good side is not necessarily the case on the day. Take the impeccably bred side of stallions being Mrs. Parker’s little boy Johnny, young Bobby Gibson and the champion sire Uncle Fester himself being one class act getting rattled by the most humble sides of Lauire McCann, Gordon Jarrett and Patrick Kearney 29 to 9 to take out winners on the day on rink 2 of the Navy Green. Uncle Fester may have had an excuse due to the fact that he has been away for two weeks in the big smoke looking after a crook mate, got home on Friday and is trying to catch up on home duties of the horizontal nature and may be lacking some focus however the other two have been home all the time. Anyways I guess its all how you preform on the day however it doesnt really matter with the sandflies as its all in having a good time, sledging and relaxing with similar thinking mates and not a care in the world atmosphere for half a day at least. To most of us it just wouldn't be the same without our weekly dose of the Sandflies on a Sunday morning thats for sure. Next week the Sandflies trip away with the Alstonville Mafia to Musgrave Hill to see the Maulers and the Robina Rebels in the Lawn Bowls State of Origin, NSW Bed Bugs ‘v’ the QLD Crutch Crabs challenge. The bus leave Alstonville at 0600 and the ballina RSL Bowling Club at 0630. Each of the 4 clubs gets a chance to host the challenge which is played over 2 years. Also on the 27th the Sandflies hold there AGM which starts at 0900 and the nomination forms are on the board for that one. Till next week take care fellas.
