Ballina RSL Sandflies Bowls Club
Well watta top day Sunday was with perfect conditions for the Sandflies Sunday morning game. Greenskeeper Duncan's offsider had the Navy Green running beautifully and is doing a top job for the boy as he is doing it a bit tuff snow skiing with his family on a well deserved holiday. With Maud and some knuckle dusters minding the ranch and young Garry doin the greens Duncan shouldn’t have a care in the world and good on him. With the Sandflies game there was some pretty tight scores. One exception being on rink 4 with young Josh Greenhalgh giving his dad, Knackers, a bit of a belt across the ear but Knackers ended up in front anyways because that game gave us the Runners-up with Little Joe, Kenny Arthur and Knackers getting money after getting beat on the day by new member Tony Tartaro, Gordon Jarrett and Josh Greenhalgh 14 to 22. Winners on the day were on rink 3 with Uncle Fester and all the way back from Pommie land, Steve Mison, doing the honours over Alby Waldron and call me anything you like but don’t call me Timmy’ Taylor 26 to 19. Some great shots played on all rinks and good to see especially after the killing fields of MacLean last week. Home game next week and Blues Navy day coming up on the 13th of September where the Sandflies hand the greens over to Blue McNally to raised money for the TC Lismore, a naval Cadet training base in Ballina. Excellent day this and with out the support from day like this one run by Blue and his mates it just wouldn’t happen so please try and get there if you can. I think the day starts at 0900 and heaps of prizes. Till next week take care fellas.

Ballina RSL Sandflies Bowls Club
Heavy overnight rain didn’t seem to affect the Navy Green much at all but the rains came to end play and all finish in the bar about a few schooner's earlier then usual. Lucky to get in what we did of cause so there wasn’t much to complain about. Laurie McCann was telling me that he wasn’t sure if he was grownin a beard or forgot to shave which left me searching for answers most of the day but other then that a fairly good day. Winners on the day were on rink 1 with Laurie McCann, Larry ‘ lizard’ Davis and young Bobby Gibson getting up 20 to 12 over Little Joe, John Dennis and Freddy Nonethewiser. Runners up were on rink 4 with Peter Connick, Frank Renner and Kenny ‘ Koala’ McIlwain getting done 26 to 16 by Roger ‘the yank’ Elkins, Gordon Jarrett and Alby Waldron. Koala was doin a bit of soul searching up to the 8 end when he was down 14 nil but managed to get back 16 in the next 10 ends before the rain cleared the green. Sheets on the board for the Bribie Island weekender away on the 27th and 28th of June, the 3 game in the 4 game State of Origin where the NSW Bed bugs do battle against the QLD Crutch Crabs on the 19th of July at Robina and the return visit to MacLean on August 16th. That day the ballina RSL Bowling Club will be booked out by some big bowling tournament which will see some 32 teams doing battle for big dough I think so unless you plan to be watching the games its a good chance to visit the boys at the MacLean Bowling Club for $25.00. Home game next week. Till next week take care fellas.

The start to the Sandflies day was slowed down by an hour due to the Men’s AGM which is a bit of a bummer as they can't sort of organise their AGM on a Saturday because they cant get the numbers I guess. However the rain held off and it turned into a top day with the lads finishing around 1245 and back into the club with most getting in around 18 ends instead of the usual 21. One game was sort of a ‘grudge’ match with Frank Renner, Vice President Uncle Fester and the President, Col Pittman taking on Kenny Arthur, the Treasurer Alby Waldron and Hon. Secretary Patrick Kearney. Great to see the social game played in the manner its meant with heaps sledging the odd ale paramount in the light hearted game that was a pleasure to play in. The winners on the day were Chris Douglas, John Dennis and Mal Lowe getting up 15 to 9 on rink 10 of the Army Green against Little Joe, The Yank and young Bobby Gibson. Runners up were on the next door rink with John Lowry, Allan Britt and Stewie Weller getting a nice 8 to 23 how do you do against John Masser, Col Siviour and Butch. Trip to MacLean is on this Sunday and no home game is being played. Sheets on the board for that on and at $25.00 is great value. The Ballina RSL Bowling Club was previously booked out on this day so the Sandflies organised the trip away. The mob who booked the greens bailed out at the last moment which was nice of them and let the men’s club down badly I reckon. Till next week take care fellas.
