On Wednesday the 8th of November we had a lovely afternoon playing in our Halfway Toyota Drawn Pairs competition where the format is 4-3-2-1. Although not a preferred format for some bowlers (in their defense the maths can get tricky when 1st shot is 4 and 4th shot is 1) it’s certainly interesting in terms of scoring as a team can pick up 10 shots in one end. This can definitely lead to some very high scores which, believe it or not, can run into 3 figures. Luckily we didn’t have any run away scores in our competition, but we must congratulate Koos Marais & Bruce Tucker on a comfortable win, as well as Colin Brown and Mabel Tully who took second place. Thank you to Halfway Toyota for their ongoing sponsorship and support!
On Saturday, 11th November we had 14 players brave the extreme heat to battle it out in the Greendale Spar drawn pairs competition. A quick comment on the fact that the youngest of our members chose to relax in the shade rather than face the high temperature… the youth of today! Well done to all the players who chose to play despite the heat, and congratulations to Mary Steytler and Melanie Ross on their win, as well as second and third place winners Koos Marais and Neill Birdsey and Barry Fairbrother and Arlene Malloy respectively. Thanks must go to Greendale Spar for their sponsorship as well as the delicious teatime sarmies.
In other news, our first road frontage sign has gone up with F&F Build It being a proud supporter of Umgeni Waterfall Bowling Club. They have been wonderful in their generosity towards our club and we say a big thank you to their whole team for their ongoing support. For anyone who is looking for a great advertising opportunity with signage on the main road, please feel free to get in contact with Colin Hall on 082 920 6306.
That’s all for this week… see you on the greens!
