Maclean & District Bowls

There were four matches of Club Championships played last week including the final match of the Mixed Fours. For full details see the results section. The final of the Mixed Fours was a one sided affair with John Deal’s team of John Nash, Sally Squires and Sandra Ferro getting away to a great start to lead by eleven to nil after the first three ends. Never did they let their opponents Bill McCarron’s team of Joyce Cotton, Ron Mulville and Val Daniels get even a sniff of victory. The luckless McCarron team conceded defeat after eighteen ends with the score at 30 shots to 11 against them. Congratulations to John and team and a well done on making it to the final to Bill and team. The date for the first round of the Mixed Triples to be completed has been extended until Friday September 18. It is hoped that this will be the last time that a set date has to be extended in this fashion as it upsets the planning of events. Bowlers, get your name in ASAP for the Mixed Pairs, as nominations close on Friday September 18 at 6pm. There is a very important notice on the noticeboard for all experienced players who would like to put something back into the game. The Board and management are calling for expressions of interest from players to form a committee for the running of bowls both on the social and competitive scenes at our club. It is felt that the job has become too big for the one person to do successfully. At present, since Scott has left the scene, the job is being done by a number of volunteers, but this cannot continue for any length of time. Please assist.
