A GREAT LOSS: It is with great remorse I have to report that we lost our President to his battle with cancer. Richard was a great ambassador for the Grenfell Men’s Bowling Club and also the Grenfell Bowling Club Ltd, he will be sorely missed. On behalf of the Grenfell Men’s Bowling Club, I wish to offer our condolences to Richards family and friends.
CLUB CHAMPION FINALISED FOR 2013: The 2013 Major Singles was completed on a Saturday afternoon. On a windy afternoon the young bull Blake was to take on reigning champion Steve for the title of Major singles champion for 2013. This proved to be one of the most exceptional games of bowls witnessed at the Grenfell Bowling Club. Steve got out to an early lead of 7-0 and Blake looked to be under the pump. The young fella calmed his nerves and clawed his way back to be 16 all after 19 ends. It was neck and neck from then on. Trailing 27-23, Steve played a couple of game saving bowls to keep the contest alive, and edging his way back to 28 all, this was going to come down to the wire. Blake held game at 28 each and Steve played a bowl the Glasson would be proud of, to get two shots. Game score 30-28, in favour of Steve. With nerves of steel, Blake took a couple of deep breaths and got 1 shot to make it 30-29. He didn’t look back from there, gaining 2 shots to win the match 31-30. We have a new champion for 2013, Blake Bradtke. Congratulations.
PENNANTS: Last Sunday saw the No 2 side travel to Cowra to take on the No. 4 team. This was a must win game for the 2’s to keep their Zone hopes alive. From the get go, the Grenfell team didn’t look like losing, winning the match 6-0 with a score of 74-40. This was the most ‘polished’ performance by No 2 side this year. All players played to their ability which is a great sign as we head to the Zone playoffs at Picton. The man of the match went to Rodger Baker, well done old man.
The No 5 side had to play Eugowra at home. Another must win for the Grenfell team as the No 5 competition is very tight. The Grenfell team rose to the occasion and comprehensively beat Eugowra 6-0 with a score of 73-44. The man of the match went to Phil Hunter, well done mate. The No 5 team have only one week to go, they play Cowra at Cowra. The side is
