The Club Champions have been decided.
Last sunday, on a humid sdhowery day 3 finals were played. We havent any photos as the conditions were so poor.
Ladies Club Champion, Sue Maddern. Sue defeated the “other Sue” last years Champ, and HBA Champ of Champs, Sue Hutchinson, in a fairly close game.
Mens Club Champion, Glen McGough. Glen defeated Phil Nagel in a game that was very tight until they had a break due to showers, after which Glen skipped away.
Mens pairs Champions, Graham Evans and Tim Anderson. G and T beat Rick Babidge and Geoff Deeble reasonablly comfortably, handling the conditions and the shower breaks better.
Ladies club Champions, Sue Maddern and Sue Hutchinson. Game played on thursday in lovely conditions. The 2 Sues defeated Val Deeble and Shelly Howe, this game was a thriller, very close until the second last end when the Sues scored a deflating mutiple.
Well done to all players and good luck in the Champ of Champ events.
The photo shows our elite volunteers using all their initiative to ensure the bottom rail is “on the level”.
We are now for “go” with the bowls shelters having the cladding installed as from tomorrow (Friday).
To all our members and their families have a safe and joyous Christmas and trust 2022 is a Happy New Year. Enjoy the bowls break, albeit short, and for those who are traveling – safe travel and return.
Last Monday & Tuesday (Dec 13& 14 2021), club members spent the best part of two days upgrading our bowls shelters in preparation to both being clad with colorbond steel early in January 2022. This entailed removing all the old painted steel, all the shadecloth, and aligning all the pipe to make the shelters look acceptable. Also adding caps to the end of all the uprights. Where the sections required more pipe, we utilised all the pipe from the lower green shelters and where necessary, welded extensions on compliments to Kev Waterson.
The shadecloth was then re-attached to ensure UV coverage until the steel cladding is installed. The only activity now required is to add 104 anchor bolts to the bases of every upright.
Thank you to all the members who volunteered their time and effort. It was greatly appreciated.

Last Sunday two teams with Hahndorf players played in the finals of the state pairs.
Phil Nagel and Bob Edwards were in the last 16 and went down valiantly 16-11, a fantastic effort.
Sue Hutchinson playing with her sister got through to the final 8, where they lost 14-9 to the eventual runner-up. Again a fantastic effort.
Recently the committee requested for a member to put their hand up and take over the role of Bunning’s Coordinator. As yet no one has offered their support.
The role is not hard, time-consuming and only happens twice a year. There is a Bunnings Coordinator’s Booklet within the Club that outlines all the responsibilities and how to do them. The time taken covers ordering products, collecting products, and arranging the roster. There is a checklist for ordering and a template for the roster.
I, Graham E, have also offered my support to whoever takes on this role from behind the scenes to get them started.
PLEASE give this position your consideration and if you want any further information please give me a call or speak to me at the Club. These two functions bring into our Club approx $1800 – $2000 per year.
The popular night bowls dates have been released and any member of the community or local businesses are encouraged to enter a team and have a fun time.
The commencement dates are Tuesday 1st and Thursday 3rd February 2022.
For further details please click on the heading NIGHT BOWLS 2022 at the top of our Home Page.
Congratulations to Pat Wakefiled, Rhonda Munday, Kev Waterson, and Michael Wheal on scoring an eight.
A great effort, with Rhonda on one leg, and against the strong Mt Barker #1 side. Eights don’t come around very often, so enjoy.
If you need plants before summer hits and get them established, now is the time to visit Glen McGough’s Valley Nursery.
Selling off his stock at 30-50% off, NOW is the time to get a bargain before he runs out.
