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.

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.
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.
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.
