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.







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!!


History Made – congratulations

History has been made with our Club’s two Division One teams winning their respective Grand Finals. This feat has never been achieved in the history of the Club. Congratulations.

Yesterday, Saturday 20th March 2021, our team completed the Division One Grand Final double by again defeating Lobethal BC by four shots at Oakbank BC.  The team went into the match as underdogs against Lobethal BC, one of the powerhouses over the past three years.  Not to be overawed by the occasion, Geoff Deeble’s rink of Sue Hutchinson, Chris Rowe, and Phil Nagle confronted Lobethal’s Wayne Zilm’s rink and came away with a strong win 28-18.  Due to a nasty fall on Thursday, Bob Edwards replaced Rick Babidge and together with Richard Crocker, Barry Rimmer, and Sue Maddern went on to a great win 22-19 against Neville Mansell.  Jamie Burt’s rink of Tim Anderson, Roger Mableson, and Rob Hutchinson battled hard to contain Darren Stansbury’s rink and went down 15-24.

Lobethal BC got away to an early lead but Hahndorf recovered their composure and started to gain the upper hand to get out to a handy lead of nine shots only to see it eroded by the time Geoff Deeeble and Bob Edwards’s rinks had finished to be all square with Jamie Burt’s rink four ends to play.  A five on the 22nd end gave Hahdorf the lead only to see Neville Mansell’s rink recover with a four on the 23rd.  With his last bowl to play and down in the head, Jamie’s running shot cleanly picked up the jack to be one up, placing Hahndorf two shots up.  Phew!!

The last end was a nail-biter but cool heads (one wonders what Rob Hutchinson’s heart monitor was reading??) took the end by two and handed the team a four-shot victory.  Well done to all the team and a fantastic victory.

The vocal support by the players’ family members, plus Club members should not be underestimated.  It was great to see around twenty-five sharing both ends of the rinks to give their support.

Members and partners celebrated at the Three Gums Bistro well into the night at its End of Season Dinner together with presentations to Club Championship winners.  President, Chris Button welcomed all present and later gave an outline of what has been a most successful year for the teams and individual members of the Club.

It is a great credit to our Club members, only fifty strong, to come away with such as result. Also, our other teams, three of the four others, finished in fifth place whilst the other in seventh place. All teams were competitive with an enormous team spirit.



Today, Wednesday 17th March 2021, our Top  Division team took out a nail-biter by two shots over favorites, Lobethal BC to win the Grand Final.  With the scores locked away and Phil Nagel’s rink with one end to play, our team of Tim Anderson, Bob Edwards, and Rob Hutchinson gave Phil three shots at the change-over.   Lobethal’s Darren Stansbury had two opportunities to reduce the shots held, taking out one of Hahndorf’s bowls with his first, followed by Phil putting his next bowl being the head as cover.  Stansbury’s last bowl missed, handing Hahndorf the Grand Final. Phil’s rink won their encounter 28-18.

Geoff Deeble’s rink did their part in comfortably overcoming Neville Mansell’s rink 26-12.  Well done to Richard Crocker, Ray Rattray, and Roger Mableson.

Jamie Burt’s rink of Graham Evans, Leo Lambert, and Barry Rimmer did not fare so well going down 7-29 against Wayne Zilm’s all-round consistent rink.

The win for Hahndorf is a great result for the overall team coming from well down the premiership table early in 2021.  The team had only won two games by the 10th of the 17 rounds but turned their fortunes around by winning five of their last seven rounds.

Well done to all who have played their part in this memorable win.

Best of luck to our Saturday Top Division team, again against Lobethal BC.
