Bowls In Focus : March April 2010
Bowls In Focus 45 North Gippsland Gippsland bowlers are gearing up for the chance of a lifetime bowling experience this month when they travel to Hong Kong and China at the invitation of the president of Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Training Centre, Jackie Wong to bowlers from around the world help celebrate the Year of the Tiger in 2010. The two local bowlers competing are Lex Bennett and Lee Cook from Maffra who will join with the organiser of the tour, Graeme Clark from Bruthen. Others attending are Alan Collins from Lakes Entrance, Metung's Barry Peel, Ray Collins from Moonee Ponds and two bowlers from the USA, Robb Pawlak and Gerry Knott. We wish our players the best of luck and we look forward to hearing of their experience when they return. Ovens & Murray Central Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Graeme Friday and Keith Watkins (Mansfield) who recently passed away. Peninsula The Michael Stanley juggernaut just keeps rolling on, with the Somerville great capturing the Group 7 Yarra Valley Nepean singles championship last month at Rosebud Country Club. He defeated Flinders champion Andy Alexandrou 25-22 in the final having earlier beaten Marysville's Mark Sim- mons 25-15 in an elimination final. Congratulations also to the Karin- gal combination of Phil Ashman, Lyle Taberner, David Harrison and Peter Maddeley who clinched the Group fours title. Best wishes to the Peninsula boys in the state titles at Darebin. Yarra Four of Melbourne's best premier division bowlers defeated favourite and Australian representative Lee Schraner and his Brighton team at the Kew Heights Australia Day Open Fours tournament. The $1000 prize went to Melbourne's skip Jason Saunders and the Altona duo of Ben Loughlin and Chris Ball, along with Si- mon Jeffrey also from Melbourne who performed brilliantly against 41 other top class teams in superb conditions. This tournament is the Kew Heights club's marquee event of the year and organisers were thrilled once more to see all three greens filled to capacity with colour and activity. Bowlers came from far and wide; a Burleigh Heads shirt was spotted on one rink. Whilst the competition was keen, many joined in the spirit of the day, wearing Aussie hats; flags were adorning the rinks, bunches of gum leaves took over the clubrooms. The nasal tones of John Williamson giving his 'True Blue' hit a bash would not have been out of place at all! All in all, this event is a must on the bowling calendar and a credit to all concerned for an excel- lently run and enjoyable day.
