Sandflies Results and News
The Sandflies had a trip to Stafford in Brisbane on Sunday and had a top day with the Queensland Newspapers Bowling Club. It just happened to clash with Blue’s Navy Day being run at the Ballina RSL Bowling Club but just couldn't be avoided due to the fact that the President of the QNPBA, Dennis Johnston, is having a losing battle with cancer and very much wanted to see the Sandflies and shout a beer before his passing. Dennis had this day organised when he was a bit fitter and wanted to shout the Sandflies Committee a meal and a few free drinks for looking after his boys when they come to Ballina each year. Dennis was hoping to have made the the day in a wheelchair however he rang me up after the game and as he explained over the mobile that he has his family around him and not expected to make this week out which left me a bit teary eyed to say the least and I am not ashamed to say so. He said he was proud to have had the pleasure to have meet the Sandflies over many years and hope we enjoyed the day which he was putting on. He also asked me to pass on his best wishes to Jim Brigginshaw whom Dennis said is known to some of the Queensland Newspapers bowlers and is held in high regard by them. I just happen to mention to Dennis that the last time we met up with Jim and the Alstonville Mafia that the score wasn't flattering but the bar taking went up a fair bit on the day. So Jim, if you don't get to read this maybe someone can pass it on to you mate. Don't know who won the day because I couldn't have cared less after that call but I can assure you all that we gave Dennis a early send off for which he was extremely grateful. He hoped that the Queensland Newspapers continue the event at the Ballina RSL Bowling Club for many years to come and was sorry he wont be there next year. Thank you for some great memories and yarns Dennis and God Bless mate. Till next week take care fellas.

SANDFLIES RESULTS & NEWS
I can't believe the difference in the weather from last Sunday. What an excellent day this Sunday was with all sunshine and a beautiful warm up to the near perfect spring morning putting behind all the rough weather over the past few weeks. A good crowd of Sandflies hit the Navy Green and had a ball to say the least. Winners on the day were on rink 6 with new player, John Reed, Billy Inglis and Luke Prsa ( pronounced Prsa ) getting up with a 5 on the last end to get up 21 to 20 against another new boy Warren Thatcher, Gordon Jarrett and the Lennox Legend Johnny Burrows in a very tidy game. Runners up were on rink 2 with Johnny Lowry, and fresh from 3 months overseas in Ireland ,Scotland, Wales and also the land of whingin poms plus supporting that hard to get rid off Guinness gut, Chris Dart, welcome back Chris and skipping was Former South Sydney great Col Pittman getting a nice little 16 to 26 how do you do from Stewie Weller and great to see him getting in a Sunday game, Mark Wilson who is a visiting mate of Col and Bryan Lambert skipping. Great to see some of the old heads turning up for there Sunday morning fix and lets hope numbers will keep improving through Spring. President Col asked that those who are going away to Stafford on the 14th of September or were a reserve please check the board and let us know if you are still ok for the trip. Till next week please take care fellas.
