Nowra Athletics

Unfortunately last Wednesday's track & field competition was cancelled due to rain however it was a different weather scenario that faced athletes on Saturday at Nowra Show.

Heatwave conditions prevailed throughout the day but despite the scorching heat the annual 1km handicap race went ahead. Twelve athletes contested the race with the usual handicapping applied.

Lined up in starting order was Charlie Braddick, Kevyn Davis, Sue Anfruns, Rommey Hazell, Andrew Havadjia, Lucas Johnson, Perry Strand, Scott Martin, Liam Dooley, Ethan Havadjia, Zac Havadjia and Harry McGill.

Charlie Braddick was the youngest contender with Go marker position. Next off the start line and at the opposite end of the age scale, was Kevyn Davis as the oldest competitor, who started off 11 seconds.

The back marker position was filled by 19-year-old Harry McGill  with a 2 minute 11 handicap. Zac Havadjia was just in front of Harry on a 2 minute 3 second handicap and brother Ethan Havadjia was on a 1 minute 57 handicap.

The race was hard-fought by all with back marker Harry undoubtedly pushing the hardest as he made his way through the field, picking off competitors one by one.

The Havadjia clan fought their own battle for bragging rights to the finishing order whilst the quiet achievers Sue, Scott and Lucas plugged away in the middle of the field, unfazed by the heat or the crowd.

However it was club stalwart Kevyn Davis who managed to grab the victory, stopping the clock at 4.37 minutes. Harry did well to finish second with a stop watch time of 4.48 minutes but his corrected time was a mere 2 minutes 37 which was a fine show of speed and athleticism.

Rommey Hazell took third place in 5.12 minutes off a 23 second handicap. In fourth place was Lucas Johnson followed by Liam Dooley and Scott Martin. Perry Strand ran in 7th then youngster Charlie Braddick followed by Zac Havadjia who staked his claim on being the first Havadjia member home!

Sue Anfruns finished 10th then Andrew Havadjia with Ethan Havadjia rounding out the field.

Lawn Bowls

Berry Men's Bowls

A very successful Pennant trial game was played against Bomaderry on Thursday, February 9. Six teams from both clubs contested in the trial over 21 ends with all rinks returning very close scores. A further trial against Bomaderry will be played at 5pm on Thursday, February 16.

Social play has not been possible over the last week due firstly to some long awaited rain on Wednesday 8th and then unplayable conditions on Saturday 11th. All green keepers were relieved that the soaking rain arrived between the two extremely hot periods as this did reduce the damage to greens and surrounds.

Congratulations are extended to Adam Rigney who was runner up in the Sate Singles, David Lambert runner up in the Minor State Singles and  David Badger who reached the semi final of the State Senior Singles.

For information regarding playing at Berry telephone 0488 729 229.

One game in the semi-final of the men's Major Singles was also played on Saturday.  Craig Taylor and Pat Brown battled it out in the very hot and humid conditions.  This was a very close game with the lead changing several times.  With the scores 30-29 to Pat on the second last end, it was anyone's game.  Craig scored 2 shots on the last end to win 31-30.  Also congratulations to both men for an excellent  game and to the marker Pauli Kennedy and spectators who endured the heat to support the players.  The other semi final is set down to be played today.
