20 of our ladies represented St Ives in the annual Rose Bowl competition again Turramurra. It was Turramurra's turn to host the event this year. A huge congratulations to our ladies who won the trophy back from Turramurra with a score of 115 to 87. Well played to all!
The ladies only play the one handicap competition each year - the Handicap Pairs. The combined handicap for a pair must be at least 12. After two rounds, here are the 2019 results.......
It was a very exciting day today at the annual St Ives Fives event. The St Ives Womens Club has been running this event since 1993 but St Ives has never won the trophy - UNTIL TODAY!
Our team of Di McBryde, Jan Woodcock, Rhonwen Martin, Shizuko Hashimoto and Vicki Bartrop played beautifully to win all four of their games - the only team to win four games on the day. We are really proud of our winners - well done ladies.
Sunday saw the first round of the Mixed Pairs Championship played in very nice conditions. It was a most enjoyable day of bowling.
It was a very exciting and close result at Lindfield last Friday where St Ives won the Roseville 6s trophy.
In an usual situation where many teams had 3 wins (and no team had 4 wins), St Ives came in first by just one point.
Fantastic result ladies and well played by Di McBryde, Jan Woodcock, Rhonwen Martin, Bev Barton, Anne Cowlishaw & Vicki Bartrop (L to R in photo).
There were two excellent and close games played in the semi finals last Tuesday. Ros Heilman's team won through by one shot on the last end and were scheduled to meet Jan Woodcock's team today.
Conditions were much kinder today with beautiful sunshine and little breeze. All the ladies played well with Jan Woodcock's team winning through to claim the championship for the second year running.
The ladies played the 2nd round of the Triples Championship today. The greens were quite tricky because of the inconsistent wind.
We had a couple of substitutes today due to ill health - Marianne Strevens kindly filled in for Bev Donnelley and Jay Blow kindly filled in for Pam Caganoff.
The semi finals will be played next Tuesday.
Last Thursday, the ladies celebrated the club's 60th birthday in combination with Presidents Day. Unfortunately the weather was very unfriendly with steady light rain - so no bowls played! However, members and visitors had a great day with morning tea, card games and a trivia competition - followed by a delicious lunch.
Many thanks to the many visitors who travelled from far and wide to join us. Visitors included Lesley Swales - NSW Womens Bowls Director, Julie Hayden - District President and the many presidents and representatives from other clubs in the district.
Finally, a huge thank you to the ladies who cooked and worked so hard to made the day such a success.
Huge congratulations go to Anne Cowlishaw and Di McBryde for their convincing win in the Womens Pairs Championship for 2019. Their opponents were Ros Heilman and Joan McCullagh who both played very nice bowls. However, the winners were just too good on the day. Well played ladies!
