Mrs. Parkers little boy Johnny was farewelled on Sunday with a minutes silence, a BBQ and a few beers and a top day it was. Preso Col and Treasurer Alby let the purse strings loose for the little Aussie Battler who was a foundation member of the Sandflies when it formed back around 1986. Johnny wasn’t the quite little timid fella and not one to hold back when he though he was right. He was also a very loyal and honest man. Given the role as ‘The Organiser’ in the Sandflies Committee but we will leave that one there. Shoes hard to fill and I don’t think anyone will even try. RIP JayPee. Winners on the day were on rink 6 with Lizard, Malcolm in the middle and Bryan Lambert giving Johnny Harley, Uncle Fester and Mad Irish a nice little 27 to 10 touch up. Runners up were on rink 4 with Little Joe, Johny Dennis and former South Sydney great Col Pittman getting a 12 to 21 a regular South Sydney score card by Spearo, Chris Dart and Kenny Arthur. Next week is a home game and coming up is Blue’s Navy Day on the 29th which is one of the best organised days in Ballina. $15.00 for a game of bowls, sit down lunch, heaps and heaps of prizes and that dreaded ‘Nelson’s Blood’ with all money going to the Cadets of the HS Lismore based in Ballina. Till next week take care fellas.
