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.

Sadly my Sandflies report was left out of the Tuesday paper last week, in which I mentioned the passing of our old mate Eric Burgess and Lexy Hamilton Mrs. Not sure why, but the paper must have missed my email, so my apologies. To report the Sandflies Sunday morning at the Ballina RSL Bowling Club. Started of sadly to hear the News about Lofty Swetnam passing away on Friday. He was one of the Sandflies and President of the Men’s Club and well respected in the Ballina RSL Club and Sub Branch circles. Our thoughts go out to Shirley and family. The boys braved the rain after the greenskeeper gave the thumbs up early Sunday morning. Winners were on rink 3 of the Navy Green with Lexy Hamilton, Kenny Arthur and Butch getting up in a close 21 to 20 against Laurie McCann, Mal Lowe and young Bobby Gibson. Great to see Lexy getting out and back on deck with the boys. Runners up were on rink 2 with Roy Frappell, welcome back Frank Renner and ‘…call me what you like but don’t call me Timmy’ Taylor getting beat in another close game by Roger ‘the yank’ Elkins, Uncle fester and former South Sydney great Col Pittman and not to mention another bunny howdoyoudo. Sheets on the board for Bribie $150 - 27-28 June, game 3 of the 4 match series of the State of Origin at Robina 19 July $25 and the return visit to MacLean $25 - 16 August. Till next week take care fellas.

A minute silence was held on Sunday morning after the Sandflies were told by Johnny Burrows that his best mate Eric Burgess had passed away. During that minute, memories flooded back off Eric and his permanent smile plus them misfortunes including him head butting the toilet pan and smashing it to pieces and then the getting run over by the car trailer trick. Not a dry eye in the house and one could hear a faint verse of Eric and Sandflies President Col Pittman singing '...Glory Glory to South Sydney…’ echoing through the Ballina RSL Bowling Club. Not much hope was held for Eric after a recent fall but its still sad when it happens. Also the wife of Lexy Hamilton passed away last week. Lexy is just getting back to his brilliant best after some old war injuries playing up. Hope the grieving process isn’t too hard one both them families and Preso Col passes on from the Ballina RSL Sandflies his deepest condolences to both families. Winners on the day were on rink 3 of the Navy Green and they were Brendan Higgins, Gordon Jarrett and Garry Simon getting up 26 to 10 over Laurie McCann, Allan Britt and Butch. Runners up were next door on rink 2 and they were Little Joe, Peter Jarrett and Alfredo Garcia getting beat on the day by Garry Cross, Keith Spearing and young Bobby Gibson 24 to 18. Sheets are on the board for 3 trips away. Bribie Island 27th - 28th of June - $150.00, the 3 round of the 4 game State of Origin on the 19th of July - $25.00 and MacLean 16th August - $25.00. Till next week take care fellas.
