Thursday January 5th. 41 Players attended and although the conditions were a bit rough the rain held off until all players had finished. Winners were T Orton and B Badger, T South and H Queckfeldt were the runners-up and the consolation prize went to M Finney and G Benn. The MB award went to T Ferguson, I Creagh and K Holyoak.
The ILRR was played at Bunbury with the Leeuwin League starting the campaign off with a win over the SouthWest League. Overall the League came in second to Murray and congratulations should be shown to all players. Edmund Hoemburg was selected from this club to go onwards to the zone event with one other person from the Leeuwin League. This is despite the League coming in as runners-up in the competition. Go figure.
On Sunday the club’s veterans and novices played out for the championship titles. This year only two novices played a winner take all game. It was a solid game up to the point where both G Robinson and K Nichols were on 11 each but then the points started to accumulate from Robinson who has played pennants during the season and this experience showed. He ended up winning 21-11.
The veteran’s games were all very close right from the get-go and going into the cup after the first round were T Reynolds, R Prentice, K Allsop, R Winchcombe, Andre Gil and H DeBoer. B Sharpe, W Hoover, D Henderson, B Hitsert, M Brown and K Holyoak all went into the plate.
Playing off in the plate final were B Sharpe and M Brown who had done such a remarkable job as skip the previous two days in Bunbury at the ILRR. Fatigue showed on Brown who seemed to struggle on the long ends thrown at him by Sharpe. However never say day for Brown who fought back over the last few ends when Sharpe required just the one but Sharpe kept his head and continued to play top bowls as well keeping Brown to minimum shots gained. In the end Sharpe played too well and took out the coveted event 17-14.
The cup final was between the old master K Allsop and someone who said he was runner-up “many times to Kelly” in T Reynolds. He had displayed some terrific shots to get into the final and started out well and it was Allsop who had to find his form. There were so many talented shots that this game would not have gone astray being televised nationally. Reynolds would hold shot or three, and Kelly would come in with a winning bowl at the very last. No matter what was thrown at him, or bowled at him, Kelly was not fazed. He kept confident and focused.
Both bowlers played superbly and those who were fortunate enough to be in attendance witnessed a great game. Luck however was not with Reynolds and he went down 11-17.
Many thanks were given to Mike Brown who was the sponsor for the veteran’s event as well as to all the markers on the day, some whom marked for 3 or 4 games. Rob Pollard and the match committee did their usual great job.
Congratulations to everyone who played, it was a great day, well worth being there to witness these championship games. People miss out by not being there.

Last Saturday saw 12 golfers contest the first weekend game for 2017.
Winning score of the day was set by Jim Parry with a 35 for the 14 Holes. Not far behind on 33 points was Mal Williamson who was quite pleased with both his performance and that of his new golf cart, Bluebird 2.
The games can only get better good shots being shared around the course by the keen golfers.
Frank Battista from Collie was a welcome visitor and said the course has a good run at the moment .
Barry Jackson thought so too winning both the longest Putt on Hole 18 and NTP on No 10.
Last week we featured a picture of a mysterious visitor on one of our greens. I thought it compared favourably with a mysterious visitor to our course last year in the form of a runaway creature seen sprinting along one of the fairways on two legs!!
Golf is on again Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Names in by 12.45 1.00 pm Hit Off.
