State Pairs Finalists

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.

Well done!

Bunnings Coordinator Required

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.






Working Bee Thanks

Thank you to those who came along and helped clean up things around the club.

We are now looking ship shape for the season which starts this coming Wednesday and Saturday.

Phil then had few words encouraging all to have a successful season, and this was followed by some lively competitive games on the green.

The teams are now selected for our first week and posted.

PLEASE note that Wednesday venue has changed to Hahndorf, due to the unavailibity of the Lenswood green.

Working Bee and Season opening

The club is having a mini working bee on Saturday 9 of October, starting at 9 am.  There are not many jobs to do, but many hands you know.

We will sizzle some snags around 12 for the workers.

Following this, at 1 pm a club opening day is proposed and bowls in the afternoon. Uniform to be worn, please.

Finally filling this big day out an informal tea (possibly pizza)


The season starts the following week 13/10 and 16/10. The program is available on the HBA website, and printed copies should be at the club around this time.


Resigning of our valued sponsors has begun and we are pleased to advise that we have, to date, over 60% continuing.  Others are still considering their position and we are hopeful they will approve to continue within the next two weeks.

One comment that has continually come up is how do we know they are from the bowling club?



It is vitally important in these difficult times to ask for financial or voucher/prizes support when many are doing it really tough.

Please support our sponsors whenever you can and tell them where you are from.

Thank you.

Working Hours

The Women’s Regional Finals were held at Murray Bridge BC last Wednesday (31st March 2021) in excellent conditions on well-prepared greens.   Hahndorf’s Champion of Champions pair of Sue Hutchinson and Sue Maddern represented Region 6 and Sue Hutchinson in the Singles.

The day unfolded with the first round of pairs where the girls met Jervois and although they won the scores were no indication of the game.

Sue H then played her first-round singles against the Mannum representative and had a comfortable win.  She then had to back up with her second-round against the representative from Lameroo and again had an excellent win.

The second round of the pairs was then scheduled, and the girls again acquitted themselves by defeating the team from Lameroo.

Sue H stated she was so exhausted that that evening she had no tea and went straight to bed!!

Well done to both Sue’s on such an excellent performance.

The girls continue to play in the State Events for the Champion of Champions plus State Pairs scheduled for April 24th at Hamley Bridge BC.  Sue M is paired with Joan Prosser from Payneham BC and meets former Hahndorf bowler Christine Keller and Wendy Clarke from Hawthorn BC.  Another former Hahndorf bowler, Kathy Miller is paired with  Kristeena Kircher from Payneham BC.  We wish our girls every success.

It seems bowls will never end for our girls as games continue on into May!!

What a 2020/2021 Season our Club is having!!
