BYRON BAY MEN
In a rain affected week there were some Open Singles Championship games decided on the two days of play. The week’s results were: Earlier Steve Hammond d Dan Coman in a tight game but then Steve lost to Aaron Richter-Steers.; Brett Luker d Dick de Witt, Toby Schott d Mick Daly; Phil Boyd d Craig Johnson; Duncan Elphick d Jim Clark and Bulla Burton d Syl Reid. The coming quarterfinals should be interesting and don’t forget to mark a game if you have been defeated. Wednesday’s impending rain made for a small field and the winners were Helen Clarke, Eileen and Werner. On Thursday the Self-selected Pairs was a tie shared by Paul Clark and Sam Skehan along with Ian Burston and Judy Wright. The runners-up were Bev Gawned and Ivan Eastern. The Jackpot was not won and stands at $60 this week but Barry Nelson from Shepparton won the T Bone Tray for Victoria. The Huxley Insurances Losing Rink Drink went to a Singles rink so Aaron and Steve shared. With the finer weather upon us now the Club Pairs and singles should proceed at breakneck speed.
Go the Bay.
BYRON BAY WOMEN
Congrats to Jeanette Beaton & Madam President, Pam Scarborough, for finishing Runners Up in the Tweed-Byron District Seniors Pairs. They were defeated by Marg Flesser & Sue Laurence, from Pottsville. It was a closely contested game with the score tied at 18 all on the 21st end, causing a playoff end. The Pottsville pair came out the winner but our ladies made our club proud. Awesome effort ladies!
Wednesday July 22nd a very cold day, Today it was out of the hat & we drew a lucky losers card. The trophy went to Pam Brown & Shirley Ford who lost to Ann Temple & Helen Lavelle: Carmel Doyle Jan Dwyer & Denise Skinner d Joan Mason / Nancy Moran Chris Haynes & Ivy Watson.
CHERRY ST SANDFLIES
The Sandflies Sunday morning game was cancelled early that morning due to heavy rain overnight and as it turned out for most of the day. Bit of a shame because Sandflies President Johnny Harley had organised a 93rd birthday cake for Joe Busuttill better and affectedly known as ‘Little Joe’.
This little champion attends Sunday bowls like clockwork, is real gentleman and never complains so the Preso Johnny thought a little cake was a nice reward so may go over till next Sunday morning which is Alby’s Football and Hot Dog Day.
All has been organised for this annual event where the Sandflies wear their favourite Footie Club colours and have Hot Dogs after the game. Hopefully all will be well for the game but with the current probs in Sydney and a few cases in Bryon Bay, which were contained in an instant and well done to them people for that, thinks seem a goer but we will see when the boss is back from a well earned break on Tuesday. With the Horses Birthday on Saturday I guess the usual Sandflies will be at their punters table at Ballina’s Premier and only Bowling Club – Cherry Street Sports.
A-Grade pairs final washed out so this will be held Saturday August 1.
