SANDFLIES RESULTS & NEWS
What a top weekend we have had and the Sandflies thrived in near perfect conditions on Sunday morning. However before the bowls the AGM took place with all positions filled before the AGM and no ballots were required. The new mob are President Col Pittman, Vice President Uncle Fester, Secretary Patrick Kearney, Treasurer Alby Waldron, Bowls Organiser Steve Mison and Committee, Knackers, Brett Fraser, Mrs. Parkers little boy Johnny and Butch who were all in last year, worked well together and did a great job. Hon. Secretary Patrick Kearney was given life membership for works done and one smart ass suggested that it was a huge turn around seeing he was nearly given life suspension a few years back for his part in ‘Save the Bowlo’ campaign which has been long forgotten. Chairman Garry Hooley gave his words of wisdom and how the Ballina RSL Bowling Club is going and did that leave most shaking there heads. So, we need more bums on seats and using the clubs facilities to save the club from grief. Some put there names on the line to save the bloody place now its time to show you still want to keep it kids. Please help out where you can and surely a few bucks in the pokies never killed anyone. Winners on the day were on rink 4 of the excellent Navy Green and they were Frank Renner, young Bobby Gibson and the hard working treasurer Alby Waldron getting up 25 to 18 against Laurie McCann, Uncle Fester and Freddy Nonethewiser. Runners up were on rink 2 with Tim Taylor from Lennox, Brett Fraser and former South Sydney great and Preso Col Pittman getting beat on a count back on ends 10 to 9 after a 15 all score against Peter Harley from Lennox, Colin Stubbs from Tumut and Patrick Kearney who were not sure about Col’s score card ability. Next week is Alby’s Football and Hot Dog Day where you can wear you NRL footie club colours and if its anything like last year it should be a beauty. Sorry lads, no football boots allowed unless you want a belt in the ear from Greenkeer Duncan. Till next week take care fellas.

SANDFLIES RESULTS & NEWS
Not sure about the mathematical skills of the Queensland mob called the Musgrave Hill Maulers and the Robina Rebels but the NSW teams of the Ballina RSL Sandflies and the Alstonville Mafia were dropped jawed when the overall score was announced at the first of the NSW Bed Bugs ‘v’ QLD Crutch Crabs State Of Origin at Musgrave Hill on Sunday. The main lad from the Maulers and with a name like Steve Feenary one should have been more aloof however due to the effects of the demon drink it was only noticed after the event that Steve had added in the other Maulers games that were being played beside the challenge games. This brought there overall score to beat us NSW lads by 32 to set the scoring standard at the next game being at the Alstonville Bowling Club on the 30th of November. With all jokes aside it was a top day with great company, greens and tucker that has set a standard of the highest degree. I just hope we can all match that as it was exceptional and many thanks to the Musgrave Hill Maulers for a top day. One now knows what happens when Chinese meals go in some people and while later that very criminating fart happens by chance which leaves a everyone on a 54 seater gasping like goldfish in a bowl. Well ofcause we cant mention names can we Preso Col but somewhere between the Gold Coast and Kingscliff turnoff, searching for that pocket of fresh air was at a premium. Great day and cant wait till the next game. Till next week take care fellas.
