membership fees are now due for payment at ballina rsl river street
The Royal NSW Bowling Association has increased their capitation fees by a staggering $14 per
annum which increases the annual fees to $80 per member.
Your committee, along with many from the District and indeed the State, are voicing their
disapproval, on your behalf, to the Royal.
The committee, with support of the RSL Ltd, are investigating introducing a second tier
“Transitional” membership for new bowlers and those that may not want to play Championships
or Pennant.
The $80 pa fee is broken down this way:
$60 to the RNSWBA (up by $14 from $46 last year - a 23.3% increase)
$10 to Zone One
$10 to Northern Rivers District Bowling Association
$80 in total - your club is just a collection agency in this regard.
Don’t forget to pay your $2 locker fee and Sandflies $3 fees -

Monday, June 15, 2015


The Ballina RSL Sandflies had the best of both worlds on Sunday with sunshine and some free beers put on for a few hours by former South Sydney great and Sandflies President Col Pittman for his loyal Brethren. Col figured that the boys who turned up week in and week out deserved a treat and suggested he will be doing it more often in a way to say thank you to the boys. Some suggested that Col had gone a bit funny after his beloved bunnies took a pretty bad flogging from the Tigers on Friday night and the news that the bunnies prized trophy cabinet had been broken into and all stolen but it turned out after an investigation that termites had got in and eaten all the wooden spoons. Not to matter, at least they have the big one from last year if they can get it back of Russell. Winners on the day were on rink 3 of the Navy Green with Laurie McCann, Mal Lowe and ‘ me anything you like but don’t call me Timmy’ Taylor playing true brillance against Mrs. Parker’s little boy Johnny, Lennox Legend Johnny Burrows and Col Pittman in a 26 to 13 kick in the ass. Runners up were on rink 4 with Roger ‘the yank’ Elkins, Frank Renner and Nifty Nev Dunne getting well and truly done on the day with a 32 to 12 touch up by Peter Connick, Col Siviour and Gary Simon and checking the card on Monday morning I noticed a 5, 6 and a 8 on Mr. Simon’s side of the card which happens pretty rarely with them 2 very capable skips. Last call for who wants to go to Bribie Island for the 27th - 28th weekend this month. See Alby if you wish to go as he is giving the motel numbers soon. Till next week take care fellas.

Wasn’t shaping up good for The Queensland Newspapers Bowling Club after being flooded out a few months ago and then looked like pouring again after we rocked up on Saturday but Sunday you couldn’t have wished for a better day. Its always a great day with the Newspaper boys and don’t they like to party. After the game a BBQ was had and then the Ballina RSL Bowling Club whacked on the Cash, Marilyn and Elvis show and wasn’t it a hit with a packed club and most getting involved with the fun; singing and dancing to their hearts content, one of those shows you didn’t want to finish if you know what I mean. A great way to enjoy a Sunday with bowls in the morning and entertainment in the arvo. The return visit to see the Queensland Newspaper Bowling Club will be on the 22 of November and it is to be decided if its a weekender with some wanting to go to the races on the Saturday and bowls on the Sunday. However bowls will be organised by the Queensland boys or those who wish to play bowls on Saturday instead of the races. The weekend trip will be decided by the committee and will depend on costs and numbers attending so it might just be a day trip. Winners on the day was a QNBA team with Mick Leech, Ronny Spicer and Russell Jemsey beating Laurie McCann, Col Siviour and Lotzi Koszta on rink 3 of the Navy Green. Runners up were on Rink 6 with Sandflies Allan Britt, Koala and Greenskeeper Duncan Elphick getting a nice how do you do by the Queensland team. Phill Edwards, David Turnbull and Garry Scheider 28 to 12. I must admit that Duncan was called away for a while and Uncle Fester filled in to help with the deficit. Bribie Island trip away on the 27th and 28th is filling fast so if you want to go get in quick as the books will shut shortly. Thanks to Alby and Uncle Fester doing the excellent BBQ steak and onions and many thanks also for the Ballina RSL Bowling Club for putting the free show on. Till next week take care fellas.
