Greenkeepers Required School Sports Victoria State Championships The SSV State Lawn Bowls Championships were held in late April at Melbourne Bowling Club, where eight schools that had won their way to the finals competed having previously won their respective Zone titles throughout the season. The schools represented in the finals were: Bac- chus Marsh Secondary College, Ballarat High School, Balwyn High School, Bellarine Secondary College, Bendigo Senior Secondary College, Gladstone Park Secondary College, Mordialloc College and Rutherglen High School. After the initial sectional rounds, Bendigo Senior and Bacchus Marsh finished on top of their respective sections, whilst Balwyn and Rutherglen both finished second to earn their way into the semi finals. Bendigo accounted for Rutherglen by just one shot in the first semi final with an 8-7 scoreline, while a big upset occurred in the second when Balwyn defeated Bacchus Marsh 15-4 . However, in the state play-off Bendigo Senior Secondary College defeated Balwyn High School in a very one-sided affair, 16-2, to be crowned the 2011 Victorian Champions. Congratulations to Tim Zwar at School Sports Victoria, Melbourne Bowling Club and to all schools, teachers and students who participated in this fantastic event. We hope to see this event become bigger and bet- ter next year, so if anyone is interested in entering their school into the event, please contact me for further de- tails on (03) 9819 0757 or at email@example.com Disability Sport and Recreation Winter Challenge In a bid to promote bowls to people with disabilities, Bowls Victoria is supporting a project run by Disability Sport and Recreation over winter to invite either new bowlers, or existing bowlers wishing to receive coach- ing from our state disability coaches. It is proposed to conduct a ‘Winter Challenge’ in conjunction with the DSR coaching evenings during the winter months this year. These will be held on Fridays from 6.30 to 8.30pm on the indoor green at Darebin City Bowling Club on the following dates: May 27, June 10, July 29, August 26, and Sept 30. The rules for the challenge will be as follows: • It will be conducted as a Three Bowls Pairs event with a draw for partners each evening. • It will consist of two sets of 7-ends or to the bell. • An incomplete set will be won by the team in front at the bell. • A score of two points per end for a win and one point for a draw will be awarded. • The event will be decided by each individual’s aggregate score over the five weeks using the fol- lowing method – aggregate points scored and then a countback on shots scored. • A green fee of one dollar a game will be directed to winner and runners-up prizes. For those not wishing to participate in the Winter Challenge normal coaching drills and skills develop- ment with coach Ron Weir will continue in conjunction with the above. If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in participating in this training/challenge, please contact me for more information on (03) 9819 0757 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please Note: Attending these sessions may give some bowlers an opportunity to become involved in the Victorian Disability Squads and possibly even represent the state in certain events.
