Tuesday 5 April: Tim the Tool Man had his final game on Sunday with the Ballina RSL Sandflies for a few years at least and will continue his drive around Australia with his lovely wife and best mate Bev. They are hoping to finish the final leg which is Western Australia. Considering they only planned to stop in Lennox Head and Ballina a few weeks – back in 2013 – and are only just leaving now I think the Western Australian leg may take a while. The Sandflies wish them both well and safe travels and more then welcome to come back anytime they want. Winners on the day were on rink 2 of the Navy Green with Peter Harley, Kenny Arthur and ‘Call me anything you like but don’t call me Timmy’’ getting up 24 to 9 against Hans Willems, Stewie Weller and hard working Bowls Organiser Steve Mison. Runners up was on rink 3 with the Roger ‘the Yank’, Peter Connick and Lizard winning on a count back with a 17 all draw against Tony Tartaro, Bob Davey and Bryan Lambert. Next week is a visit from The River Rats from South Lismore which will be a top day. Great to see Spearo at the Bowlo on Sunday. Till next week take care fellas.
