Condobolin Sports Club Bowls
A new year and another eleven months of social and competition bowls fun beckons, not that it’s been quiet on the greens with a total of 46 games being played on 27 days since the last report.
That’s 49 locals plus 10 visitors stepping onto the green a total of 394 times. Dave Jnr (26 games) only missed one with Steve (21), Al (20) and Uwe (19) not far behind.
On Australia Day, 26 bowlers played then enjoyed a BBQ lunch. Pete Brasnett and Bill Logan won the day and Andrew Brasnett, Colleen Helyar and Tim Foster came second.
Ian Simpson, Al Stuckey, and Uwe Kuhn defeated Max Johnson, John Dopper, and Steve Dawson, and Dave Carter Jnr and Ray Burnes defeated Michael Waller and Brian Tickle in the Wednesday mens social bowls.
Last Sunday saw an impressive thirty two bowlers front up for the meat run with Neil Baxter, Al Barnes and Steve Dawson defeating Max Johnson, Cath Thompson and Bill Logan to win the vouchers. Brett Byrnes, Sam Dawson, and Mel Rees defeated Tom McKeown, Dick Barnes, and Uwe Kuhn. Al Stuckey, Laurie Thompson, and Ava Barnes defeated Ian Kelk, Jeff Withers, and Brian Tickle.
Pauleen Dimos and Steve Brasnett defeated Michael Waller and Danielle Thompson. Craig Jones and Dave Carter Jnr defeated Dan Seton and Grant Davis and Darren Seton, Michael Leal and Trent Bendall defeated Pete Brasnett, Brendon Richards, and Nick Moody.
Next Sunday the first round Pennants will be played, both grades are home games starting at 8:40am. The 7s play Tullamore and the 5s play Eugowra.
In early January, long time Bowling Club member Ron Nicholl passed away. Ron hadn’t played recently but was a very active member and was the Club Champion numerous times. Our thoughts are with Pam and the Nicholl family.
