HAWKES BAY WOMEN'S OPEN SINGLES
Barbara Exeter and Colleen McLaughlin began this competition a month ago and were part of the 11 players from Hawkes Bay who made Post-Section play.

Today they continued the competition in Havelock North. Colleen was beaten by Raelene Cronin. Barbara beat Karen Grainger in the semifinals ... then she went on to play the finals against Liffy Law and WON ....

and she is still a JUNIOR
CONGRATULATIONS, BARBARA, FROM ALL YOUR CLUB MATES.

 

BOWLS TARADALE WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP SINGLES
This event got under way yesterday. Because the bowling calendar is so full players were asked to arrange times and dates that are mutually acceptable so that the first round of games can be completed by Wednesday next.

Most of the Round 1 games have now been played and some round 2 ones.

HAWKES BAY WOMEN'S JUNIOR SINGLES
Barbara Exeter and Cheryl Simpson competed in this event over the weekend. At the close of Day 1 both Barbara and Cheryl had three wins so they are still in contention for the title. At the time of writing I am not sure when Post-Section play will occur.
 
MEN'S PAIRS CONTINUED
Our three remaining teams (J Philip, E Friedlander, R Hamilton) competed at Bowls Napier over the weekend. The team of Ernie Friedlander / Phil Young beat Ross Hamilton / Frank Grantham in the quarter finals but were themselves beaten in the semifinals by P. Sorenson's team. The final was between P.Sorenson's team and Paul Selby / Murray Glassey.

Roll up

Have you ever bothered to look at all the antics people get up to when they bowl?
Morris Shirley is doing his one-legged stand.   Craig is doing his own variation on the same - lift and lean.
 Is that Kevin Holmes giving his bowl a gentle push ... and is Dudley condoning it?
Bryan Jones seems to be the only one acting normally

QUESTION:
Question
: During a Gala at a local Bowling Club a bowl from the neighbouring rink was heading for our jack. The person on the head lifted the jack and let the bowl pass through. She said, ďI am allowed to do this.Ē  Was she right?   

Law 33.6  Jack displacement by a bowl from a neighbouring rink
If a jack at rest on the rink is in danger of being moved by a bowl from a neighbouring rink, any player at the head or the marker should stop the bowl

QUOTE:
Giving someone all your love
Is never an assurance that they'll love you back!
Don't expect love in return;
Just wait for it to grow in their heart
But if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
An hour to like someone,
And a day to love someone,
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

 

DO YOU RECOGNISE THESE TWO "GOLFERS"?
This appeared in our newspaper some time ago
I can see why they kept it quiet
Gordon (with flag) and
Peter (with upside down putter)

HAVE A TUI
A husband and wife are shopping in New World, Greenmeadows.
The husband picks up a pack of Tui beer and puts it in their trolley.
'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.
'They're on sale, itís only $20 for 24 cansí he replies.
'Put them back, we can't afford themí demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.
A few aisles further on the woman picks up a $40 jar of face cream and puts it in the trolley.
ĎWhat do you think you're doing?' asks the husband.
'Itís my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.
Her husband retorts: 'So does a case of Tui and itís half the price.'

 

THANK YOU
Any club depends upon the generosity of its members to function properly. A number of working bees were visible this week sprucing up our greens. Thank you to all those willing people who took part. This applies also to the many others, such as gala committee members, those who organise and buy our club shirts, etc. All these people work quietly in the background. Your input to our club is valued. Thank you.
 

AVOID CLIQUES
The friendliness of Bowls is destroyed by members who form exclusive groups.
Such behaviour is not in the best interests of the club, is opposed to the etiquette of the game, and should be avoided.

 

Basil Rex Gary Les Bob Dirk
BACK TO BASICS
At the end of the day it is all about skills. The team or the player who has more skills than their opposition will mostly win. Bowlers need to become more aware of the importance of being able to perform the basics to a very high standard. It is all about the basics, knowing them and executing them. Only by revisiting them again and again in training sessions will the bowler truly establish the foundations for consistency of performance whereby their true potential in the sport can be achieved. There is no magic formula nor is there a quick fix. It takes a bucket full of self-discipline, commitment, passion and determination to be a highly successful bowler. Without these qualities the true potential of any bowler will seldom reach fruition and they will be left to wonder why. Good enough but not good enough.

VOLUNTEER(S) NEEDED
With the sad news that in the not too distant future we are losing both Wendy and Bruce Mitchell as they are moving to Australia to live, we are also losing a major contributor to the successful running of our club. Bruce has been our Match Committee Convenor for several years now and his tireless work to ensure our programme and championships are run well and to schedule, will be sorely missed. To this end we, your bowls committee, are asking for help. This job is not to be put in the "too hard" basket. We are looking for volunteers to stand up and offer their services to learn and assist with this position. There are plenty people who will help to train any candidates. It is a very rewarding job and certainly not one to be frightened of. If you feel you, or even better, several of you feel you could work towards helping fill this role please contact any of your committee members. Remember, this is your club and will only survive if you are prepared to pull your weight.
 
THE HUMAN CAMERA

THE PERFECT HUSBAND
Several men are in the locker room of a golf club..
A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker function and begins to talk.
Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: "Hello"

WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"

MAN: "Yes"

WOMAN: "I am at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"

MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."

WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2011 models. I saw one I really liked."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$390,000"

MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing....the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $2,950,000 for it."

MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer of $2,800,000. They will probably take it. If not, we can go the extra $150,000 if it's really a pretty good price."

WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!"

MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape.

He turns and asks: "Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
