Bowls In Focus : October 2009
44 Bowls In Focus Bellarine Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Edith Brookfield and Marj Andrews (Ocean Grove) who recently passed away. Central Murray The eagerly anticipated Central Mur- ray opening day was held at Barooga Sports Bowling Club, where president Elaine Blizzard welcomed 82 ladies. We were also pleased to welcome life member Joyce Larkin and Group 7 councillor Alice Singe. The honour of officially starting the new season went to Nan Smith (Champion of Champions runner-up) who rolled the first jack, and Carol Wigg (Champion of Champions) who rolled the first bowl to officially star t the season. Then it was action a plenty on the green as everyone enjoyed the first get together for the season. The winning team on the day was Joyce Thomas, Jeanette Liersch, Lyn Hall and Silvia Rowles, while runners-up were Aileen Williams, Tess Ward, Anne Shore and Pat Bailey. Flinders It was a proud and happy day when the Flinders District Ladies Bowls Association celebrated their 25th Anniversary recently with a luncheon at the Rosebud Country Club. FDLBA president Val Dee and her com- mittee were pleased to welcome special guests VLBA state president Maureen Connolly and vice president Gillian Jolly along with past and pres- ent association members, including two life members Elvie Mosman and Betty Weir to celebrate this great milestone. The association was constituted on the 8 June 1984, when then state president Jean Thomson declared the formation of the new committee, to be called the Flinders District Ladies Bowling Association. There were at that time 11 clubs and 958 members when a new club, Village Glen, was affiliated. In 2004-2005, Balnarring also joined the association, this taking the club total to 13. Sadly in 2005-2006 we lost one of our clubs when Rosebud RSL Bowling Club disbanded. Our membership currently now stands at 592. It is also noted with pride there are still some original members since the association’s inception, who joined in the day of celebration. Congratulations to Dorothy Omara, Val Williams (Rosebud), Eunice Broadbent, Betty Brailey (Rosebud Country Club), Gwen Heazelwood (Sorrento), Doreen Woodman, Kath Hardy, Yvonne Bar ton, Anne Meehan, Betty Wilkinson (Village Glen), Lor na Massey, Betty Burns (Rosebud West) who were each presented with their Super Veteran badges on this special day. Gippsland The opening of the Gippsland District Ladies Bowling Association’s season 2009-2010 was held at the Traralgon Bowling Club, where president Fay Minter welcomed Group 10 councillor Barbara White, MGBA president and secretary Len Olsson and Tony Caldwell and their wives, GDLBA life members Lor na Moule and Gwen Arnold, past presidents and all pres- ent. Councillor Barbara presented Super Veteran badges to Mary Davis (Longwarry), Elvie Robinson (Moe), Dorothy McFarlane and Rita Smith (Mirboo North). President Fay congratulated the Super Veterans and presented each with a district handkerchief. While we were enjoying afternoon tea, Traralgon ladies, Betty Davidson and Gwen Crawley entertained us with a hilari- ous sketch called ‘Sophie’s Birthday Par ty’. We were all in stitches! Congratulation to Joan and Jim Gray (Moe) for their recent diamond wedding celebrations Sincere condolences to Jan Dal- gleish (Mirboo North) on the recent loss of her husband.
