THE Spring Carnival has been a fixture of the Ladies’ bowls calendar for many years and has always been an annual highlight.
This year was no exception, with 28 teams from all over the Illawarra competing during what was a top spring day.
Figtree RSL were the overall winners with two wins plus 37, and the overall runners-up prize went to Albion Park with two wins plus 34. Oak Flats took out the prize for the morning winners and Warilla the afternoon winners.
The Wednesday men played host to a group of visiting bowlers from Asquith and the competition on the green was nothing compared to the socialisation both before and after the game. It was a great day and we look forward to their visit next year.
The Saturday men also entertained a contingent of bowlers from Belmont, starting with a sausage sizzle lunch and finishing with a drink or three after the game.
Although the Kiama men won seven of the 11 rinks, the visitors took out the prizes, winning overall by a three-shot margin, 49-46.
The club’s annual meeting was well-attended on Sunday.
Ray Walker is president of the new board, with Peter Quilty as vice-president, Jackie Kirk treasurer and George Clowes bowls secretary. Doug Downton, Ted McGuiness, Audrey Evans, Mike Yalden, Bob Roser and Mick Miller are committee members. Steve Wills, Kevin Pepper and Geoff McIntyre are men’s selectors and the games committee is Nick Tylee, Cameron Baker and Martin Wilson.
Sincere thanks to the outgoing president Jeff Moncrieff for his sterling service to the club over recent years.
Congratulations to Audrey Evans, Ros Jones and Danny Keenan on being the recipients of Zone Merit Badges.
