COLIN McLEAN R.I.P.
During the club's Hetero Triples last Friday we heard that Colin Mclean had passed away earlier that morning. Colin was a relatively new bowler (Year 6) who enjoyed nothing more than trying to beat his opponents. He was a very tall man and his body sometimes didn't like getting down low but when he launched the bowl it generally sailed straight and true as if guided by GPS. He was fun to be with, he enjoyed the company of fellow bowlers and he always supported those he played with. Only a few months ago he and his wife, Merle, had been on holiday in Fiji. The speed of his decline in health took so many of us by surprise. We mourn his passing and offer Merle and family members our deepest sympathy. May he rest in peace.


HB MEN'S AND WOMEN'S JUNIOR PAIRS
Last weekend was devoted to bowlers who have been playing for fewer than five years. The men's Junior teams played at Bowls Taradale. The weather was pleasant, if a trifle windy, but the calibre of players was such that spectators were treated to first class bowling. Unofficially I heard only four men's teams made it through to Post Section play and two of those teams contained our men. Both were composite teams (Gary deRidder & Ben Sale, Richard Hocking & Dean Drummond). In the women's Junior pairs there were only eight teams entered so it was decided to play a round robin. Each team would play four games on Saturday and three on Sunday. Barbara Exeter and Freda Tiedeman, a new member to our club, was our sole entry.

Unofficial results:
Men - 1st: Paul Harrison & Mike Le Geyt   2nd: Gary deRidder & Ben Sale (WELL DONE, BOYS)
Women - 1st: Louise Bateman & Jo Hayes   2nd: ???
 

WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP PAIRS cont
On Wednesday morning a further game was played in the Women's Championship Pairs. Two-lifers Sheryl Glock & Barbara Exeter played Colleen McLaughlin & Del Girven who had one life. The game see-sawed for much of the time but a decisive last end put Colleen and Del in front 19-17. That leaves four teams still alive; both of the above teams are still in the championship plus Sue Brock & Maree Turner and Angela Boyd & Linda Boyd. Each team has one life.

FLUID INTAKE
If you want to maintain maximum concentration during a game of bowls it is important you keep up your water intake. This becomes even more critical when playing for lengthy periods. "A sip on the water bottle every second end" is a good suggestion. Avoid alcohol because it is a diuretic (increases unwanted dehydration).

A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well lately.
The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills.
The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water."
Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "Jeez doc, exactly what's my problem?"
The Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water."

 

ETIQUETTE:  SPECTATORS MUST BE NEUTRAL

When watching a game always observe strict neutrality.
Advice or criticism must not be given.
 

THREE WISE MEN


Gordon, Allan, Dennis

QUOTE: Good humour is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.


QUESTION: Now and again you get disagreements among those measuring an end. Sometimes a player mentions the result then kicks the bowls away before the other player has time to agree or disagree. What should happen when you are deciding an end?

Law 39        Both Sides Must Agree
No bowl should be moved until the opponents have agreed whether it is a shot or not, except where a bowl has to be moved so that another bowl can be measured. As the shots are agreed, each shot bowl can be removed from the head. Shot bowls can be placed in a group where they will not interfere with measuring. If shot bowls have been placed in a group, the number of bowls in the group should be agreed by the opponents. The skips and the seconds or the marker where appropriate should be told (or have signalled to them) the number of shots scored in each end.
 


AGING: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way.  I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

LONDON LAWYER V GLASGOW COP
A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Glasgow copper.

He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a lawyer from LONDON and is certain that he has a better education then any Jock cop.

He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Glasgow copís expense.

Glasgow cop says, " Licence and registration, please."

London Lawyer says, "What for?"

Glasgow cop says, "Ye didnae come to a complete stop at the stop sign."

London Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."

Glasgow cop says, "Ye still didnae come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please."

London Lawyer says, "What's the difference?"

Glasgow cop says, "The difference is, ye huvte to come to complete stop, that's the law, Licence and registration, please!"

London Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my licence and registration; and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket."

Glasgow cop says, "Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir."

The London Lawyer exits his vehicle.

The Glasgow cop takes out his baton and starts beating seven bells out of the lawyer and says,

"Dae ye want me to stop, or just slow doon?"
