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.

Not much fun with all this rain and more to come they say. The Sandflies have missed a game three weeks in a row this month but whose complaining. With the end of August next Sunday the Sandflies might just get in one game for this month then thats the end of winter and then its Spring’s turn. Freddy Nonethewiser played in the Champions of Champions on the weekend. The Saturday game was washed out at Lismore City and two rounds were played Sunday at South Lismore Bowling Club and Fred went down in the mornings game to Benny McCall. Would have been a great experience for Fred as he only gets the weekend game in due to work commitments and to play someone of Ben’s ability and experience would have been something else. Well done Fred for getting that far mate and you done good. Blue McNally’s Navy Day coming up on Sunday the 14th of September and the Cadets of the TS Lismore take over the Army, Navy and Air Force Greens for the day as a fundraiser and the sheet is on the bowls board for that huge day. Its great to see the family’s of the very well turned out cadets plus the local's rally and play at The Ballina RSL Bowling Club for that excellent yearly fundraiser. That Navy day is getting bigger then Ben Hur and brings out the budding bowler for this fun day. It will be the first time the Sandflies have missed that day as they are obligated to travel away on that day for a return visit to Stafford in Brisbane for the grudge match organised by the Queensland Newspapers Bowling Club when they visited the Ballina RSL Bowling Club last year, however the Sandflies who are not going away will play on the day if they can. Till next week take care fellas.

The Sandflies morning game was called off after some very heavy rain on Saturday night - around 125mm according to the green keepers gauge. Talking about green keepers, former South Sydney great and the Sandflies President Col Pittman asked me to thank the main man at the Ballina RSL Bowling Club, Duncan Elphic, for all his hard yards done to provide the Grade 6 pennant sides with brilliant greens last weekend. As always the greens run excellent at our Bowlo but after the rain we had before the state finals, the main greens needed that extra touch to get them up to speed and that they got. So Duncan, thank you for a job well done and the pride you take in your job mate. The men’s club held there AGM on Sunday morning and voted in some new faces. Mick Gray received Life Membership for what he has done for the club and achieved over a lot off years so well done to him also. Chairman Garry Hooley gave us some more words of wisdom however I will let Garry tell you all about that as I may have miss quoted him last time so I apologise for that mate. Great to see the Lennox legend Johnny Burrows take out the 100 club last week as he has been in it since it started and if you want to go in that see the lads at the Bowlo on Tuesday arvo before 1800 or Alby during the week if you wish. Hope all the Vietnam diggers had a top day on Monday the 18th. Home game next week so get your name in before 0800 on Sunday morning. Wonder how the 3 Lennox boys explained the game they had on Sunday Morning, Warren, Peter and ‘dont call me Timmy’ came in to have a game and it was called off due to the heavy greens so they stopped for a few ales instead, so lets hope they get a game in next week as great company they are indeed. Till next week take care fellas.
