Sandflies Results and News
The Sandflies took to the Army Green on Sunday as the NRDBA pairs and Singles took centre stage on the Air Force Green. Some very classy bowls getting played with the Alstonville wiz kids, Indi and Kit, taking out the pairs 24 to 9 and Benny McCall from the South Lismore Bowling Club winning the singles 31 to 16. The Sandflies aren't quite up in that league but still some excellent bowling. The green next door to us had a cluster of 4 bowls around the Kate and all were touching it, which was pretty good I thought and Darby Munro has taken a pic so will try and get it on the Ballina RSL Sandflies Facebook page if I can. While we are on Facebook check us out and give us a ‘like’ if you wish. Its pretty hard to get a lot of bowls on Facebook but recently the NRDBA has added a page which is shaping up good. The Ballina RSL Bowling Club and South Lismore Bowling Club has a good Facebook site along with Bowls NSW, Bowls Australia and most states. Its a great way to promote your club and its free which is a bonus off cause. The only hassle is it takes a bit to set up and update but its worth the effort I think. Winners on the day were on rink 8 and they were Little Joe, Dennis ‘Parker - Bowls’ Chapter and Kenny ‘Koala’ McIlwain just getting home 17 to 16 against Billy Inglis, John Dennis young Bobby Gibson. Bob’s team nearly got home sneaking in 6 in the last 3 ends but well done to Koala’s mob. Runners up were on rink 10 with Joey Shearman and Larry ‘Lizard’ Davis getting a 27 to 16 how do you do against Kenny Arthur and Patrick Kearney. All in good fun and coming up on the 12th of October we have the Shirts ‘v’ Skirts Day which is a excellent time where the lovely ladies of the Ballina RSL Women’s Bowling Club take on the Sandflies in this Champagne affair. Till next week take care fellas.

Sandflies Results and News
The dust has settled since the big trip last Sunday to Brisbane and back which proved too much to do in one day I think. The Sandflies are just not as young as they used to be but the lads done good anyways. The bus drivers need a huge pat on the back seeing as they leave home base at 0600 (but have to pick up the bus and trailer the previous day and be up when some clowns are just going to bed ) in the morning with 23 little saints and come back with 2,000,000,000 devils with not a hint of laryngitis and all know the best short cuts back home from Brisbane. So now you have a driver who has both hands firmly attached to a steering wheel that is gasping for breath. Its one of those ‘ guess you had to be there’ situations but to me the poor old bus driver is an unsung hero who puts his name and life on the line every time they do the thankless job. So many thanks to the Sandflies bus drivers from the bottom of our hearts lads, I won't mention any names but you know whom I mean. Winners on the day was a pairs game on rink 10 of the Army Green and they were Allan Britt and Graham Alcorn getting 29 to 12 against Col Siviour and Joey Shearman. Runners up was another pairs game with Bruce Campbell and Lizard getting beat 23 to 17 by John Reed and Butch on rink 14. Home game next week and on the 12th of October is the much awaited Shirts ‘v’ Skirts day where the Sandflies take on the lovely lady’s from the Ballina RSL Women’s Bowling Club. Top day that one and the sheets are on the board for that and the return visit away to see the Burleigh Camels at Burleigh Heads on October 26. Till next week take care fellas
