Club champions roll on the green
THE great weather has led to many clubs reporting good player numbers as members enjoy getting out and about in the sunshine.
Unlike our southern-state neighbours, lawn bowlers on the Northern Rivers are able to enjoy the sport they love along with the – socially distanced – competitive friendships.
We started off on a sad note as we had a minutes silence for Margaret Margetts who had passed away.
Margaret has been a member of the club for several years & has held several positions on the committee over this time.
Margaret will be sadly missed but always in our hearts.

CHERRY ST SANDFLIES
Great to get a Sunday in without the westerly wind that has tried us out for the last three or four weeks.
A beautiful day was very much enjoyed by all in attendance on Sunday morning and hopefully it will continue for next Sunday’s Uncle Festers ‘Little Brown Jug’ 3 Bowls Pairs. That day last year was won by Frank Renner and Johnny Nasser and what a day it was.
We ask all intending player to be at the club by 08:30 as all names are drawn out of the hat and you cant get much fairer then that. Not sure but the Preso Johnny Harley might just have a surprise for the loyal Sandflies so that always makes for a top day indeed.
Winners on Sunday were Little Joe, John Dennis and former South Sydney great Col Pittman for the 4th week in a row beating Rob Sands, Franky Reardon and Kenny Arthur in a very close 20 to 19.
Runners up were Chris Hendry, Uncle fester and Slim Thomas getting beat on the day 19 to 11 by new member Mike Rabbit the famous TV New Presenter, Paul Buckingham and Steve Russell.
Won’t mention the 32 to 6 game between Spearo, Roger the Yank and Col Siviour tearing the heart out of Gary Devlin, Peter Connick and the Mad Irishman in a game he would rather forget and so would his team.
Next week should be a beauty so till next week take care fellas.
