We are excited that a few weeks ago our new LED Greens Lighting was installed. Results from a lighting audit indicated that we have better than doubled our coverage of the green, thereby providing safer conditions for evening play.
We kindly acknowledge Sport Australia and the Mt Barker Council for their excellent financial support in the most important project.

Division 1 Saturday Semi Final
Hahndorf competed in the Hills semi final on Saturday but were outclassed by Woodside 84 shots to 53.
Rick Babidge’s rink with Leo Lambert, Shelly Howe and Sue Maddern went down 21 to 28. The game was won over 4 ends from the 12th end, when the Wooside rink scored 9 shots to go to a 12 shot lead. Babidge was able to bridge the gap a bit but not enough to trouble their opponents.
Bob Edwards rink with Richard Crocker, Ray Rattray and Roger Mableson had a close match all day with the scores tied on several occasions. It was only the last 3 ends when Woodside pulled away despite Edwards rink playing some good bowls.
Phil Nagel’s rink with Tim Anderson, Chris Rowe and Chris Button lost 13 shots to 29. Nagel lost the first 4 ends to trail by 7 and was unable to get back into the game to put some pressure on their opponents.
Phil Nagel, Chris Button, Chris Rowe, Tim Anderson 13 – 29
Rick Babidge, Sue Maddern, Shelly Howe, Leo Lambert 21 – 28
Bob Edwards, Roger Mableson, Ray Rattray, Richard Crocker 18 – 25

Hahndorf had a great win on Saturday against Gumeracha 90 to 68 to secure a finals position. All rinks were up and 14 points were scored to maintain 4th position on the table. It is expected that the Club will play Woodside in 2 weeks time.
Rick Babidge’s rink with Leo Lambert, Shelly Howe and Sue Maddern had a good win 29 to 19. The team went to a 9 shot lead after 6 ends but this lead was cut back to just one shot at the 10th. Nine shots scored over the next 4 ends saw the gap extend to 10 shots, and this lead was maintained for the rest of the game .
Bob Edwards rink with Richard Crocker, Ray Rattray and Roger Mableson also had a good win 33 to 23 shots. They went to a 6 shot lead after 5 ends and the Gumeracha opposition never got in front from that point with Edwards cruising to victory.
Phil Nagel’s rink with Tim Anderson, Chris Rowe and Chris Button was the other winner scoring 28 shots to 26. Nagel got off to an incredible start to score 7 shots on the first end. The opposition was able to turn this around and went to a 5 shot lead at the 9th end. However, 11 shots scored over the next 5 ends saw Nagel go to a 5 shot lead but could not hold out Gumeracha who led by one shot with one end to play. Nagel’s team steadied and won the last end by 3 shots to take away 2 premiership points
On a warm day at Woodside, Hahndorf, 11th on the ladder played Woodside 7th.
Skip Tom Hennessy, Diane Turner, Pam Grego and Paul Williams had an excellent day with some beautiful accurate bowling, only being behind in the first end. From then on they increased their score with a 3 on the 6th (7-2), a 4 on the 9th (12-4) and another 4 on the 12th (16-8). The accurate bowling continued after the break with another 4 on the 19th for 24-11 and a 3 on the 20th (27-11). Woodside tried hard and scored on the last end, but Hahndorf won with a very convincing 27-12. Great bowling.
Skip Allen McMahon, Janet Liebelt, Sharon Engel and Matthew Armitage started slowly but by the 7th end had drawn with Woodside, only to fall behind and be 7-15 on the 10th and 9-16 on the 12th. The fight back then started with a 3 on the 13th, followed by another 3 on the 14th and 1 on the 15th to equal the score at 16-16. It was still even on the 17th and on the 19th Hahndorf were 1 up. On the penultimate end Woodside put a scare into the Hahndorf side with a score of 2, making the total 19-20. However the mighty Hahndorf side kept calm but focussed and on the final end evened the score with a gutsy 1 to draw even with Woodside. Great effort! Final score 20-20.
Skip Dave Grego, Jennie Benham, Dave Thyer and Rhonda Munday had an unsuccessful day going down 9-20. Jennie had some great shots as Lead. Skip Dave restricted Woodside to only one 4 and one 3 with some excellent bowling which certainly reduced their probable score. Final score 9-20.
Hahndorf won – final score 56-52.
