With no league matches this week, because of the Champion of Champions Tournament, for most of us it has been relatively quiet; as far as actual bowling is concerned. For our club champions however it has been a different matter, with some people playing two full matches a day on several days. Stamina and focus are obviously important elements for players and spectators alike!

My wish for good weather and excellent bowling has worked so far; although it has been extremely cold sitting up above the green at Quesada, with the wind whistling past; fortunately warmer on the green; although the gusty winds have been affecting the bowls.

Our winning club representatives have all worked hard, with varying degrees of success. I am pleased to report that on Saturday 21st we have Suzi Cooper in the Ladies singles semi-final playing Mary Dyer (San Miguel). Mal Hughes will play Jason Prokopowycz (Quesada) in the Men’s singles semi-final. Our rinks team of: Colin Jackson, Sabrina Marks, Keith Jones & Russell Marks are also semi finalists, playing San Miguel. Keith Jones and Russell Marks have already booked their place in the Men’s pairs final on Sunday 22nd.

We wish all our players the very best of luck and look forward to their continuing success.

On a sad note, John Malden who was a member at San Luis & Quesada died this week after a very hard fought battle, he will be missed by his friends and former team members. Our thoughts and condolences go to his wife Pat, son Scott, and daughter Kerry and their family.
