Bowls In Focus : Bowls In Focus May 2010
Bowls In Focus 41 Metro North Clifton Park bowler Stan Rametta is revered amongst his club mates. Stan, 65 years old, commenced his bowling career in 1996. In his second year he won the club triples and has since won six more club titles including the singles twice. What is so special about this is that Stan is an amputee above the knee and wears a prosthesis and plays off a fixed stance. Hats off to you Stan, a fantastic achievement. Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Noel White (Lalor) and John Passey (Buckley Park) who recently passed away. Metro South East Down South Oakleigh way, a remarkable achievement hasn't gone unnoticed with reigning club triples champions, Trevor Kennedy, Charlie Agius and Steve Miller staging a successful defence of their crown once again to take their winning streak to six successive triples titles, an astonishing feat and one that could take some beating. Rumour has it that they're already eyeing off their seventh and have begun training for another title defence. Metro West The annual Gala Day this year saw 25 Probus teams compete for The Harry Kirkland Trophy held at the Werribee RSL Bowls Club. This year it was won by a local team. The day commenced with a game of 15 ends, lunch is served and - it's equal to any first class restaurant - followed afterward by two games of 10 ends with the winners determined by wins and shots up. Winners were the team skipped by Jim Rayner, with John Symons, Ray Smith and Joe Zufich. The trophy is in honour of Harry Kirkland, Werribee Probus Club foundation and life member who was a tireless worker within the club over the past 25 years. North Wimmera Jeparit's Ron and Joel Baron recently won the club pairs; to everyone's knowledge they are the only father and son combination to have ever achieved this feat in the club's history. Ovens & Murray Central The Brimblecombe boys spanning three generations are as proud as punch. Alex, Ian and Gary Brimblecombe along with Keith McNaughton won the Wangaratta club's fours title from Maurie Braden, Bruno Menniguzzi, Graham Oats and Fred Herman in an in tight match that hadtogotothe19thend.Itwasa great thrill for the family. Peninsula They are cock-a-hoop down Mt Eliza way and why not? Their Division 2 scored a great victory having gone into the grand final as underdogs against the crack Karingal team. It was an eventful two days as Mt Eliza resumed a storm interrupted semi final match from the week before against Blue Hills. The extra 55 ends had to be played and what a moment when they came back excitedly to the clubrooms after the match. The next day they had a great start and perfect weather for bowling. However a drama unfolded when one of the Mt Eliza players tripped and had to be taken to hospital. The team's emergency Neville Raymer stepped into the breech. After the first half Mt Eliza was up by 20 shots but as expected Karingal was closing the gap. End by end Karingal pegged back the score until Mt Eliza was only four shots up. In the end it was 10 shots victory with Mt Eliza. This victory was significant for Mt Eliza; it was the first pennant grand final win since 2001. Sunraysia Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Clarrie Forrest and Norman Deering (Mildura Workingmans) who recently passed away. • Oh what a feeling! Elsternwick Park’s Division 3 pennant winners. • Mount Eliza’s pennant side proved that underdogs are always in with a chance. • Jeparit’s father and son combination Ron and Joel Baron won their club pairs. • Clifton Park’s local hero Sam Rametta, winner of seven club championships.
