Once again the Bomaderry bowlers offer their condolences, this time to the Smart family on the loss of their loved one Pam, wife, mother, grandmother.

The monthly Monday pairs was won by John Heidtmann & Rick Malley, 2nd was Garry Melleuish & John Slingsby 3rd were Ron Cody & Eric Rouse with the Am prize going to Hayward & Barnes, the Pm to Miller & Reynolds.

Pennants was played in atrocious conditions, the No 2’s were away at Warilla where their season ended with a 1/9 loss which was disappointing as they led 58/56 with 4 ends to play and lost each of them to go down 58/63. Luke West’s team well led by Bruce McDonald won 23/18, Rick McLachlan’s team lost 15/22 & Daniel Hicox’s team lost 9/12, their season finishes next week away to Windang. The No 5’s went down in their last game 43/76 to Wiseman’s Park 0/10. Harry Griffith’s team lost 16/25, Gerry Webster’s team lost 10/29 & Tony Collins team also went down 17/22, the 5’s performed creditably to finish in the middle of the field.

The No 7s lost to Warilla 54/83 for a 0/10 result with Allan Hiscox’s team losing 23/26, Kevin Hartigan’s team lost 16/30 & Fernando’s team also went down 15/27, the 7’s are also now finished and did well to finish in the top half of the draw our thanks to our managers Elaine Preston, Dale McLachlan & Rae Martin who all did a wonderful job.

The minor singles continued on Sunday, Ken Smart forfeiting to Fernando Del Castillo, Greg Tatam prevailed over Bruce McDonald 31/30 in a quality game going down to the last bowl, Greg Salway got the better of Paul Beavis 31/13 and Mark Abbott continued his run for a 31/24 win over Allan Hiscox. So next week will see Fernando take on Greg Tatam & Greg Salway plays Mark Abbott in the semi finals.

The triples match which was won by Mick Vassallo, Geoff Lidbetter and Terry Hayes was close until end 16 and from that point Col Good , Phil Chittick and Nick Nicholls lost their consistence. 

Very windy conditions on Saturday 7th saw a reduced number take to the greens. Phil Chittick and Adam Rigney defeated Geoff Lidbetter and Terry Hayes in a close match  and the other match saw David Lambert and Wade Eaton handle the windy conditions to defeat Derek Raymond and Lindsay McNamara.

Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen Men

Ah, how fickle can the weather be? Wednesday saw 30 players enjoying a perfect winter afternoon. Six games of Social Pairs were contested with one game of Social Triples. Saturday witnessed our 2018 Club Pairs Championship Semi-Final and 3, Mixed Social games of Pairs blown off the green after only 8 ends.

Wednesday 4th July a cool, sunny afternoon with hardly a breath of wind. The medium paced greens ran smoothly.

Rink 1 saw our Triples game where Ronny Baker (sub Steve Hollington), Joe Wright and Neil Miller used all their considerable skill to overwhelm their opposition by 24 shots to 15.

Rink 2 the first game of Pairs witnessed David Solomon and Ray Solway slaughtered their opponents by 31 to 10 shots.

Rink 3 was another tough game, Graham Price and Trevor Wright had a great win as they annihilated their opponents by 26 shots to 11.

Rink 4 in the game of the week, both teams got away to an even start as the score was 3 to 2 on the 4th end in favour of Ian Abberley and Dave Milne. Allan Furniss and John Mac soon made a mockery of this start by zoning in and taking the next 3 ends by 8 shots to be comfortably in the lead. Maybe too comfortable as Ian and Dave played superlative bowls to score a fantastic three followed by a fabulous five to retake the lead 11 to 10 on the 9th end. So it went all afternoon with both teams playing marvellous bowls. 15th end all even at 16 shots. 17th end all even at 17 shots when Ian and Dave started to enforce their superiority by winning the next 2 ends by a shot to be leading 19 to 17 on the 19th end. Not to be outdone, Allan and John replied with another fantastic 3 to go into the last end with 1 shot up their sleeve. Who would win this monumental battle? Allan Furniss and John Mac kept their concentration and bowled a perfect 1 shot end to win the game by 21 to 19 shots. What a win!!!

Rink 5 witnessed a close game with some brilliant bowling by John Newbold and Alessandro Lattanzio to overcome their opposition by 20 to 16 shots.

Rink 6 in an evenly matched game, Tommy Smith and John Edwards played magnificent bowls to win by just 16 shots to 14.

Rink 9 Roy Cartledge and Graham Mills showed their skills and experience when they overpowered their opponents by 21 to 13 shots.

Draw Results:1st Draw Rink 5 John Newbold and Alessandro Lattanzio. 2nd Draw Rink 2 David Solomon and Ray Solway.    3rd Draw Rink 1 Steve Hollington, Joe Wright and Neil Miller.  1st Spin Rink 5 John Newbold and Alessandro Lattanzio Not won.                                                           

Saturday 7th The gale force winds stopped our Pairs Semi-Final match after 10 ends. This match will be completed on Wednesday, weather willing with the Final to be played on Saturday.

What’s On: Monday 9th July Mixed Pennants. Wednesday 11th July Social bowls payment by 12.30pm. Club Major Pairs Championship Semi-Final. Saturday 14th July Mixed Social Bowls payment by 12.30pm. Club Major Pairs Championship Final.
