Bowls In Focus : June July 2010
Bowls In Focus 33 premier Classic event. Congratulations to Geoff Humber, Bruce Little and Jim Morrison (all Donvale), George Dolan (Mitcham), Les Pye (Heathmont), Bill Allibon, Ron Batten, Bob Brooker, Gerald Browne, David Chisholm, Arthur Em- erson and Max Winslow (all Box Hill RSL), together with Gordon Harrod, Harley Brown, Denis Geisler, Geoff Paul, Frank Sayles and Colin Tainton (all of Lilydale) who received their Super Veterans badges recently. Lilydale has honoured the Proctor family by naming its No.1 green 'Proctor Green'. The family has been associated with the club over five generations and both Max and Ralph Proctor were present at the formal unveiling attended by Christine Fyffe MP, MLA for Evelyn. Metro North Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Vic Morris and Clive Rudolph (Buckley Park) who recently passed away. Metro South East What a sensational season it has been for the Clayton club, with its RVBA Premier Division and VLBA A1 pennant sides winning their respective metropoli- tan championships, then capping it all off by claiming both state pennant titles, the first time such a feat has ever been achieved. The club has been fortunate to have an impressive panel of professional coaches with the men led by former in- ternationals Todd Simmons and Michael Wilks, aided by former state player Brad Martin, while the women have former Scottish superstar Joyce Lindores and Mary-Anne Spizer, a former Australian representative, at the helm. Congratulations to Joyce who strode to victory in this year's Austra- lian Open Ladies Singles Champion- ship at Shepparton, also to Michael, who partnered Tony Wood to a silver medal in the men's pairs. Joyce will represent Australia in the World Singles Championship in November at Norfolk Island. A sincere vote of appreciation to Clayton's popular board chairman Don Callaway who announced his retirement after 14 years in the job and best wishes to his successor, Bill Turner, whose distinguished business background will ensure Clayton's bright future is in good hands. Hampton Park Bowls Club has opened its new synthetic green to complement its existing synthetic green. Newly elected Bowls Victoria president Graeme Hosken performed his first official duty bowling the first bowl and assisting the Mayor of Casey Cr Lorraine Wreford along with BV official representative for Casey Bernice Helle and life member Wer- ner Melzer. The greens are assured of maximum use over the winter and in coming seasons. South Gippsland Meeniyan Bowling Club put on a special afternoon tea for its revered member and RVBA past president Ian Dewar. Ian was presented with his Super Veteran badge having celebrated his 'OBE' a month prior. Making the presentation was former RVBA vice president Doug Kneebone and former RVBA board member Ken Lee. Ian was delighted of course to have Doug and Ken Lee, along with SGBA president Jack Charlton (Fish Creek), former SGBA president and match committee chairman Max Mortlock (Foster), Charles Middleton (Foster) present, while former SGBA special representative David Marsh (Wonthaggi) sent his best wishes. Ian and Meeniyan's Super Veterans Neville Meike and Morrie Parry have since enjoyed SGBA Super Veterans' Day at Korumburra.
