There is very little in life that will keep me away from a good game of lawn bowls and I have always wondered whether other people have temptations that keep them away from the game. Well, we definitely discovered one that affected our lady bowlers this past week… A ROYAL WEDDING… Only 3 ladies arrived on the royal wedding day to enjoy a game with the guys at Umgeni Waterfall Bowling Club. As they say, “You’re never too young to have a happy childhood"
We had a brilliant morning of bowls on Friday 25 May when we played our Woodstone Craft Café sponsored 2 Bowl Trips Competition. We had a mixed field of 16 teams from bowling clubs in PMB, Hilton and Howick who participated. This competition is set up to produce attractive bowls in that the team with the most shots wins the comp. This month the winning team was Clark Logan, Mark Taylor and Nicky Wallis. Second place went to Colin Burden, Julia Strachan and Bev Vorster and the third prize went to Vic Rowell, Courtney Gace and Graham Dicks. All the main prizes were sponsored by Woodstone Craft Café who operate from The St John’s Village Lifestyle Shopping Complex. There were also Toucher prizes for the first lead, first second and first skip to touch the jack with their bowls. These prizes were sponsored by The Treatery who operate from Yard 41 and were won by Barry Fairbrother, Mark Taylor and Dave Stephenson. Mark Schraader the owner of Woodstone Craft Café was away on business so could not hand out the prizes but we had the privilege of having our Regional NIBA Representative Colleen Duikers present to hand prizes out to the winners. It was lovely to have Colleen spend the entire morning with us watching the competition. As a club, we would like to thank all our visiting bowlers for playing in this competition and special thanks to our sponsors for making it possible with their generous sponsorships.
