Mixed Fours now set up for Silber v Heath final.
The semis of this year's Mixed Fours event were played last Sunday morning and the final will now be played in two weeks time, Sunday, 4th March, commencing at 10:30am. The finalists are D McBryde, S Hashimoto, J Barclay & skip R Silber (who won their semi 21-14 over the Balmer four) and J Blow, J Bradley, J Currie & M Heath (who were victorious over the Wright team 26-14). The best of luck to both foursomes.
Men's Singles Round 2 Results
Eight second round matches in this year's Men's Singles Championship were held yesterday, Saturday the 17th, and some great bowling by our top bolwers was on display.
However, as is usual in these events, some upsets occured which meant that we lost our two "Bowler of the Year" winners for the past two years. Both Chris Carey and Fred Alexander lost to their opponents Rod Silber and Michael McCourt respectively. Apart from these two winners, standout performances were also provided by Rob Coles, Jimmy Barclay, Peter Shlager, Noel McKenzie, Wilson Cheng and Peter Tonoli.
The quarter final matches to be played next Saturday afternoon are Rob Coles v Michael McCourt, Jim Barclay v Peter Shlager, Noel McKenzie v Wilson Cheng and Peter Tonoli v Rod Silber. Good bowling for next week to all.
Male and women members alike, even if you're not playing social next Saturday afternoon, come along and watch some spectacular match ups from the modern comfort of our newly renovated, airconditioned clubhouse! You may even partake and have a drink .... or two!!

Last end disappointment in Zone Senior Triples Final
Some sporting finals and grand finals sometime never reach the high standard that are expected of two teams who have fought their way through all before them to reach the pinnacle of the event. And the final of the Zone Senior Triples last Saturday morning involving three of our best was just one of these occasions.
Playing at Harbord against a very strong Harbord team, in front of a very parochial crowd, Tim Walton, Wilson Cheng and Fred Alexander arrived ready to give their best. The "tiffy" had been slowed somewhat through over night rain and the lack of wind indicated that all was in order to perform at the highest standard. But, whether nerves got the better of them, our lads were the first to agree that they have bowled better on other days ...... it was just one of "those"!!
A two to Harbord on the 24th (remember it was 25 ends of two bowl triples) meant that the teams came into the last locked at 18 all. However another two on the 25th by Harbord meant that the Harbord team had taken out the title and left our lads with a feeling of "what might have been".
It's no mean feat to make the final of a Zone tournament and Tim, Wilson and Fred are to be congratulated for doing so. Congratulations to the Harbord trio and well done lads.
