CHERRY ST SANDFLIES

Pretty lucky getting Sunday morning in with the promise of heavy rain all day, however, they got it wrong for a pleasant change. The promised rain didn’t dampen the Sandflies spirit with the Preso whacking on a surprise $2 schooner day and didn’t that go over well. Schooners at the early 1980s prices is always good news so many thanks to the forward thinking President Johnny Harley and his committee giving back to the members.

The Sandflies have now cancelled all trips away and visits to the club this year because of the current bug getting around. We felt that it wasn’t in the members best interest and to travel away and one of the boys gets crook from the flu we wouldn’t be able to forgive ourselves. Next year is a different story at this stage however and looks like we are nearly booked out for next year already.

Winners and Runners – up on Sunday were both rink 6 John Dennis, Mal Lowe and Graeme Gaunson getting up 22 to 8 on the day against Frank Renner, Steve Russel and Frank Reardon. Alby’s Football and Hotdog Day coming up on the 2nd of August and the Sandflies AGM 16th of August at 0900 and the nomination forms are in the red folder in the Sandflies section of the bowls board area at Ballina’s Premier Club – Cherry Street Sports.

GOOD SPORTS” Cherry St Sandflies winner and runner-up skips for Sunday the 12th of July were Frank Reardon (left) and Graeme Gaunson.
