Sandflies Results and News
The Ballina RSL Sandflies travelled to Burleigh Heads and returned the visit done by the Burleigh Camels in March. I was away in Melbourne for the Cox Plate - where the Cleaner took me to the cleaners - and got all the goss from Uncle Fester when he rang through this morning about the trip, he didnt sound well at all so I take that as an indication that it was a great trip away. He said that the Sandflies got beat on all rinks except 2 so that sounds to me like they had a blinder to me. The two winning sides for the Sandflies were Peter Harley, Knackers and Nifty Nev Dunne beating Jack, Steve and Graham 29 to 13. The other winning side was Warren Thatcher, Allan Britt and Garry Simon beating Keith, Shane and Danny 24 to 15. Uncle Fester said that the Camels treated them well and are looking forward to coming back down to Ballina on the 22nd of February next year. Coming up we have a visit from the South Lismore River Rats on the 9th of November which should be another great day. Many thanks to Allan Britt for driving the bus and getting everyone up and back safely. Next week is a home game and then we have the Melbourne Cup. Till next week take care fellas.

Sandflies Results and News
The battled scarred Sandflies resurfaced after the defeat last Sunday in the hands of the Ballina RSL Women’s Bowling Club only to be hammered again into a pulp by the mighty Bongaree Pumistone Pirates. Captain Skeeter and his very merry band of misfits did the unthinkable and defeated the Sandflies 163 to 69, or that's what was said after the game on Sunday Arvo. Just happens I checked the cards this morning in a more sober light and it works out that Captain Skeeter done a beautiful con. The real score , as it turns out, Sandflies 169 to the Pirates 163 and the sly old sea dawg got away with it. The Pirates set sail into the sunset with the spoils of the day and sets the mood for some unpleasantries next time we meet on the 7th & 8th of February. Great day with Captain Skeeter and his lads and it always is a special event. Former South Sydney great and Sandflies President Col Pittman asked all to stand for a moments silence for one of the fallen Pirates, The Preacher Man, whom passed away last month. Winners on the day were on the Sandflies on rink 7 of the Navy Green with 'Dont Call Me Timmy' Taylor, Billy Inglis and Larry ‘lizard’ Davis getting up 26 to 13 against Rump, Frog and Duke. Runners up were on rink 3 were some Pirates, Kazza, Alfy and Curly got pipped at the post by Peter Harley, Knackers and Preso Col 19 to 13. Many thanks to the Sandflies Committee for doing the hard yards before the game, Knackers and Uncle Fester cooking on the Barbie breakfast and lunch and a great job they do under the organising skills of Mrs. Parkers little boy Johnny. Next week the Sandflies take a holiday to Burleigh Heads to see the Camels and please be at the club around 0730 for that one. Till next week take care fellas.

Sandflies Results and News
What a wonderful day on Sunday with the ladies of the Ballina RSL Women’s Bowling Club matching it with Sandflies in the annual Shirts ‘v’ Skirts Day. First class weather and company. The ladies did the unthinkable and got up on the day 161 to 154 to take out the bragging rights for 2015 and well deserved it was too with a the impeccable turnout and excellent draw shots, the ladies could not falter. Its the first time the ladies have won in 5 years I think, but they have turned up in force and tried there little butts off year after year and its great to see that inter - club spirit. Madam President Lois was very proud of her girls and rightfully so as they did good to beat the Sandflies. After the game a very welcomed chicken salad was partaken with the pop of a Champagne cork now and again just topped the day of for the ladies. Winners on the day was Norma Renner, Val Lewis and the Lennox Legend Johhny Burrows (helping out the ladies) getting up 29 to 13 on rink 3 of the Navy Green against John Lowry, Eric Burgess and Larry ‘Lizard’ Davis. Runners up was on rink 4 and they were Sue Lowry, Lois Cawley and Joan Hollingsworth going down 20 to 21 to Cranky Franky, Col Pittman and young Bobby Gibson with the boys getting up by just1 shot on the last end. President Col, still a bit crook from last Sundays footy game, thanked Madam Preso Lois and her girls for the kick in the ass and said the Sandflies would return next year and would be after blood. He said that it was a well deserved win for the women and also thanked the ladies adding a bit of beauty to the Sunday morning game. Next week we have the visit from Bongaree Pumbistone Pirates from Bribie Island. Captain Skeeter said his boys are after revenge from the hiding they got on home ground in February. We will need 34 hard playing Sandflies next Sunday and I think the mens club want some help on Saturday also if you can. Not sure about the rumour getting around that Russell Crowe is making an epic movie of the South Sydney game last week. He is said to be playing Greg Inglis in that blockbuster. Till next week take care fellas.
