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!
It was a great pleasure to watch the pairs semi finals today. All four ladies played beautifully and this showed in the progressive scores. In both matches, the lead changed a few times throughout the game and the result came down to the final end.
I am sure that all players will be happy with their game today.
Congratulations to Joan McCullagh and Ros Heilman for their win over Kath Morrison and Jackie Wilmshurst.
Congratulations to Di McBryde and Anne Cowlishaw for their win over Margaret Ledbury and Rhonwen Martin.
The final is scheduled for Thursday next week.
The ladies played the second round of the Club Pairs Championship today. Initially the weather looked doubtful but it turned into a beautiful day for bowls. Congratulations to all the players today. We now have four pairs ready to play the semi-final next week.
The final of the women’s club singles between Vicki Bartrop and Shizuko Hashimoto was played on a beautiful
sunny May Tuesday.
Shizuko got off to a good start by winning the first 3 ends. Vicki won the next end with a great
on-shot but it was to be short lived and Shizuko won the next 3 ends with great bowls to lead 9-1. Vicki then
picked up a 4 and from then on both players kept their draw games going in an exciting match to watch Shizuko
led 13-8. Vicki regularly had shot, both bowlers played beautiful draw bowls but Shizuko steadily opened up her
lead winning the next 6 ends with mostly singles to lead 20-8. Vicki came up with some terrific final bowls to
keep the game alive before Shizuko won the last 4 ends to claim victory 25-10.
