Next Sunday at 9 for a 9.30 start, we have a visit from Banora Point, so if you would like to play please put your name down through the Proshop.
Ocean Shores Bowling club
Last Saturday for the first time men and women across the Tweed/ Byron District played pennants together. The Ocean Shores Grade 6 team had two women playing, Anna Lovasi and Janine Howell. We played some very close games against the men at Bangalow and in a nailbiting finish were overall winners by one point 61-60. Well done to all the Shores teams who were playing and good luck in the next round.
Byron Bay Men’s Bowling Club
The start of the 2020 TDBA Pennants had mixed results for our lads with the 2nds going down with one rink win only at Kingscliffe but the 6’s had a 3 rink and overall win at Byron Bay against the Condong side.
Next weekend there is a bye in the comp.
After having won a rink for us on Saturday, Bulla Burton backed up to play the Semi of the District Senior Singles only to be defeated in that game on Sunday morning.
That same morning our social bowlers Club travelled to Tweed Heads BC for a social game with their sides on the indoor venue – a bit of an experience for some. On the club scene we had a small turnout for Wednesday Twilight bowls and it was a purely social game.
Thursday was different with a big field and some triples games to get them onto the Singleton Green. Good to see a visit from former Pennants Skip, Wayne Earea and a new bowler playing for his first time, Gary ‘Fred’ Templeman. The winners were Mark Brown and Paul Clark while Ken Rutgerson, Paul Bezrouchko and William Green got second spot. Dean Dhnaram took the T bones home but the Jackpot was not won and stands at $130 this Thursday.
The Huxley Insurance's Losing Rink Drink went to a triples team, Charmagne and Max from Palm Beach skipped by Ivan Eastern. Saturday social bowls played alongside the Pennants and the winners were Mirtha Christian, Bev Gawned and Ivan Eastern with second prize going to Ray Breckenridge, Judy Wallace and Pat Bigg.
The Wynter Green will be back in shortly depending on the weather so we will be in full action of bowls then. Go the Bay.
