Some of the Sandflies Veterans didn’t show on Sunday and was put down to a flesh wound of sorts and good one them. Heroes all indeed. The Sandflies braved weather on Sunday that even would had the most keenest of kite flier's strapping to a tree. Gusts of over 30 knots made the wide hand near impossible at times but still playable with persistence and brought back some wonderful memories of the old wide draw bowls which we all had starting in Lawn Bowls. The narrow hand was down the centre line if you were game but if the wind stopped you finish outta bounds. So that was Sunday and you can’t do much about the weather but the beers always cold anyways. Winners on the day were on rink 3 of the Navy Green with Lexy Hamilton ( thats two weeks in a row for Lex ), Allan Britt and former South Sydney great Col Pittman - and we won’t mention the 3 losses for the bunnies in a row Col either - getting up against Little Joe, Mrs. Parker’s little boy Johnny and ‘…call me anything you like but don’t call me Timmy” Taylor 23 to 17. Runners up were on rink 1 with Billy Inglis, Kenny Arthur and Garry Simon getting done on the day by Roy Frappell, Gordon Jarrett and Bryan Lambert 13 to 25. Next week we have a visit from the Queensland Newspapers Bowling Club and we look forward to that one. Thanks to Alby and Knackers on the BBQ and Knackers again for cooking breakie. Till next week take care fellas.

Was nice to play bowls against some off the worlds best bowlers in Thailand and the Philippines National Squads even though the greens weren’t the best but hey, who cared, the bowlers were class and lovely people to go with it. A huge learning curve and if you get the chance, go. The Ballina RSL Sandflies had a visit on Sunday from the Burleigh Camels who come to town for the weekend. The Camels played both days at the Ballina RSL Bowling Club and I think they cleaned up both days, well certainly on Sunday. The over all score was 145 to 138 and the Camels revenged the visit we made to Burleigh Heads last October. Winners on the day was a Sandflies team with John Dennis, Brett Fraser and Freddy Nonethewiser getting up against Merlin, Don and Shawn 30 to 15 on rink 10 of the the Army Green. Runners up were on the rink next door with a Camels team and they were Trevor Webster, Russel Ackworth and Russel Schultz getting beat 23 to 16 by Lexy Hamilton, Mrs. Parkers little boy Johnny and Bryan Lambert. Many thanks to the boys on the BBQ - Greg, Uncle Fester and Knackers and Knackers who cooked the bacon and eggs for breakfast. Next week is a home game and on the 3rd we have a visit from the Queensland Newspapers. Thanks to ‘ …call me anything you like but don’t call me Timmy’ for doing the report while I was away. Till next week take care fellas.
