Sunday 23 April: While young Tim, the usual writer, relaxed in the comfort of his 5 Star hospital bed the Ballina RSL Sandflies battled it out on some very well prepared Army Green by our champion green keep, Duncan. The numbers down due to Sandflies playing the pennants on the Navy Green but will be back next Sunday after getting pounded by South Lismore – especially the 8 to 32 on rink 1. Souths deserve the win, well done to them and all the best for them in the Zone 1 play off. Meanwhile on rink 10 the winners on the day were Andrew Cattle and Johnny Harley getting up by 1 point against Lawrie Horder and where’s ya Binney 22 to 21. Runners up were on rink 13 and another close game with Eddie Hookless and Johnny Dennis going down 22 to 23 by ‘LJ’ Hooker and Scam McCann. Next weekend we have a visit from the Queensland Newspapers Bowling Club. Players required for the Saturday game if you can please and Sunday will be the free for all it usually is with these lads as they love their bowls and a beer but not sure it what order that should be. Hope all is well Tim and when you get out its a Chinese Banquet mate. Till next week take care fellas.
