VALE “BIG”

Members are advised that it is with regret that former Club member Ray Hoffmann, known it us as “BIG” recently passed away.  Uncle to Carolyne Edwardes, “Big” was born in Renmark in 1925, played football, cricket, boxing, snooker and finally top division bowls before coming to Adelaide.  His nickname came from being the smallest of his family at birth and his parents not wanting him to consider himself inferior.  It stuck with him throughout his life.

Known for his keen sense of humor and friendly approach, “Big” could always be called upon to give complimentary advise in the best way possible.

A good sport, he played in the the Club’s Fourth Division Premiership team in 2014-15 and missed playing the following year through illness.  A fall stopped him from playing but was a welcome sight watching our games throughout the season.

The Club extends its condolences to Carolyne, Barry and family.

Vale “Big”
Sadly Missed

More Congratulations!

Congratulations to 13 year old Matthew Armitage on again being selected on the SA Bowls Under 18 Boys State Squad – Silver Section.  Silver Section applies to those under 16.

Matthew was added to the squad last season and the Club is delighted to see him selected again.

He has also been drafted to play in the SA Super League for the Heysen Comets.  Matches will begin on July 27 at Salisbury Bowling Club.

We are sure Grand-dad Tom is very proud.  Well done Matthew.

Congratulations & Best Wishes

Keith and his staff aim to deliver the best customer service experience they can. They have fast become a one-stop shop for Mt Barker battery needs and have made a name for themselves with their friendly approach to customers. They love being able to fix people’s problems and give them a solution to their power issues and troubles.

Knight Bowls a Winner

Knight Bowls finished last Thursday evening with the final played between the Tuesday night winners – The Colliwobbles and Thursday night winners – The Coodavbeens (looking to go back-to-back).

Playing conditions were cool and the preparation of both teams was evident from the start.  The game was played in great spirits but the greater experience under “Grand Final” pressure saw the Coodavbeens win in the end.

The winners were presented with their HBC Certificate entitling them with free 12 month membership for the coming season should they take up the offer to play pennant.  Also they won a $50 voucher from The Haus.   Runners up were also presented with a $20.00 voucher also supplied by The Haus.

Other Knight Bowlers from both nights used the opportunity to have a game and complete their season.

The Club is indebted to its sponsors, Cartridge World, Gallery Gifts, Go Vita, Hahndorf Fruit & Veg, Bridgestone, Old Hahndorf Mill, The Haus, Hahndorf Chinese Restaurant, Hahndorf Inn, Hahndorf IGA, Balhannah Mitre10 and Nepenthe Wines for their kind support.  Not to forget club member Bob Edwards for his apples.

Sad end to Finals!

Our Wednesday Division Two team traveled to Oakbank to play their semi-final with high hopes of repeating their win over Lobethal the previous week.   Unfortunately they were not able to complete the win going down by forty shots.  The problem was not made easier when Eric Biar had to retire at the half time mark leaving Bill Robertson’s rink one bowler short.

Tom Hennesey’s rink battled hard and got home by ten shots however Ron Bateman’s rink also had a day they would not wish to remember going down by twenty two shots.

Given the overall result, all bowlers who made up the Division Two team throughout the year are to be congratulated on making the finals.

Results were:

Hahndorf defeated by Lobethal at Oakbank                         38 – 78
W. Robertson, A. McMahon, P. Wakefield, E. Biar                      9 – 37
R. Bateman, D. Bateman, J. Benham, V. Deeble                        6 – 28
T. Hennessey, A. Stevens, B Buckingham, D. Turner                23 – 13


Great Minor Round Finish!!

What a way to finish the minor round.  Playing at home Division One took on the might of top placed Lobethal and came away with a great win.  Christine Keller’s rink had an excellent win by fifteen shots.  Scores were close in the early ends but a five allowed the rink to break away and continue to increase its lead to the end. Malcolm Keller’s rink fought all day to win by one shot.  Scores changed hands late in the day but a great last end sealed their win.  Phil Nagel’s rink were in trouble early but recovered over the last five ends to get within eleven shots.

The win lifted the team to finish in fifth place.

Fourth placed Division Two played a finals prelude against third placed Lobethal and got home by four shots.   Ron Bateman’s rink had an excellent win by eight shots with Bill Robertson’s rink, after being well down at afternoon tea, recovering to salvage a draw.  Tom Hennessey’s rink had a great fight and just fell short by four shots.

The win gives the team confidence going into the semi-final against Lobethal next week to be played at Oakbank.  Supporters are most welcome to give our bowlers support.    Best wishes to all.
