(Roaring 40's) Men's Championship  Pairs
A week ago we had the "South Pole" Men's Singles ... this weekend it was the "Roaring 40's" Men's Pairs!!!
Very strong, very cold blustery winds greeted the 29 teams which took part in the Men's Championship Pairs. Two games were played on Saturday afternoon and four more today (Sunday). I have said this before but it is true again. What a heartening sign it is to see so many of our new bowlers taking part - and doing so well.

By the close of play only three teams remained.
Ross Hamilton & Jack Philip still have their two lives intact.
The remaining one lifers are Gary Heathcote & Alan Ferrick and  Ernie Friedlander & Bryan Gilbertson.

 

GARDNER SHIELD
Round 3 was played last Monday at the Omarunui Bowling Club. Both our teams played against Omarunui. See results below.

   Question:
Is it common for 50-plus year olds to have problems with short term memory storage?  
   Answer:   Storing memory is not a problem; retrieving it is the problem.

WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP PAIRS
The women's Championship Pairs began back in late September and continued Sunday morning. Two games were played and now only four teams remain in contention. Two lifers are Sheryl Glock & Barbara Exeter. The remaining three teams have one life; Colleen McLaughlin & Del Girven, Sue Brock & Maree Turner, Angela Boyd & Linda Boyd
 

THE SECOND EVERYBODY WANTS
If the lead has done his job the second can be called upon to play position bowls and they can be the most difficult to play.  If the opposition lead has two on the jack the second may be called upon to play a firm shot to open up the head. So, the second has to be very versatile or his bowls will be wasted. He has to have a good draw shot, he must have accurate positional play, and he must be the possessor of a good firm shot. A second must never be short unless otherwise directed. An overdrawn bowl has a better chance of counting than a short bowl. In addition to playing the game the second is responsible for keeping the correct scores registered on the card and on the scoreboard. Any player that can live up to the above has a very important role to play in any team
 

WALK THE LINE
When walking up the green try and keep to the middle.
Dont encroach on the adjoining rink.
Remember other players nearby.

   Question: As people age, do they sleep more soundly?
   Answer:   Yes, but usually in the afternoon.


QUESTION
: How can you tell who has possession of the rink?

Law 35           Possession of the Rink
Possession of the rink will belong to the player or team whose bowl is being played. As soon as each bowl has come to rest, allowing time to mark a toucher, possession of the rink will transfer to the opposing player/team. On end changeovers, do not walk in front of the player whose bowl is in motion until it has come to rest, as this player/team still has possession of the rink. The player may give you permission to do so, up until then you are to follow behind them.
 

We are all the same and we are all different

LEMONS
Those who get up early and set out the boards and mark the greens deserve a special thank you.
Most of us do not see them at work but we all benefit from what they do. Thanks.

On Saturday morning when two such workers were setting up the greens for the championship games they saw on our greens
fireworks (probably understandable), and lemons
If ever you are near our club please be alert to non-members on or near our greens.
 

CLUB PROFILES
Alan Frame has been brave enough to get these under way. Thank you, Alan, for your contribution. Now, everyone else, don't let it stop there. If you think they are of any use send me something now.  Help us to get to know our bowling family better.
 
ALAN FRAME
I am a new bowler at the Taradale Club. I joined in February this year and am thoroughly enjoying this new sport.

I was born in Gisborne attended Mangapapa Ilminster Intermediate, and Lytton High Schools and later began my teaching career in Gisborne- Cobham School 3 yrs after attending Ardmore Teachers College in 1971-3. I have also taught at Patoka -6 yrs, Tawa- 3yrs, and Ruakituri (inland from Wairoa) 2.5yrs, and am currently at Bledisloe 22.5 yrs.

I played soccer for the Thistle club in Gisborne.

Earlier in my life in the late 70s-80s I took up indoor rifle shooting and fullbore- (.308). My best accomplishment was to shoot for the North Island team against the South Island and then captain the rest of NZ against Scotland in .22 (smallbore) indoor shooting. I also represented Hawkes Bay in both fullbore and smallbore.

I am married to Carolyn - also a teacher, and have 3 children aged 22 Rochelle,20 Jason and 17 Joshua.

I have since semi retired from teaching but still teach reading Recovery and help with a maths group.

 

BROKEN PARACHUTE
A man jumps out of an airplane with a parachute on his back. As he's falling, he realizes his chute is broken. He doesn't know anything about parachutes, but as the earth rapidly approaches, he realizes his options are limited; he takes off the parachute and tries to fix it himself on the way down. The wind is ripping past his face, he's dropping like a rock, and at 5000 feet, another man goes shooting up past him.

In desperation, the man with the chute looks up and yells, "Hey do you know anything about parachutes?!"

The guy flying up looks down and yells, "No, do you know anything about gas stoves?!"
