Presidents Pen

The countdown continues towards our President’s Day and the appearance of 3 of the best lawn bowlers Australia has ever produced. You should know who they are by now, also the free coaching session from 9.30am Tuesday 17th December. The teams from the other clubs in the district are being finalised and it looks like we’ll have 14 Men’s teams and hopefully the same for the ladies vying for the BCIB President’s Cup in the arvo from 1pm. Karen Murphy and Steve Glasson may add a touch of difference during the game by playing an end or two in each team, sounds great, hope it’s in my team if we’re in a spot of bother at the time.

Last week I was going to tell how great Club Maroochy teams had performed over the week, but my write up failed to reach the publisher in time. This week I’m right though.

At Palmwoods on Sunday, 1st, 2nd and 3rd went Club Maroochy teams in their Open Fours. Fantastic achievement out of the 14 teams that competed. Over at Buderim Al Newman’s team came 2nd in their Men’s Fours Carnival, so the Club’s players are bowling really well at the moment.

Last Sunday 2 ladies teams from Club Maroochy competed in a 2 day Fours Carnival at Bribie Island but had no success so to speak but did knock off QLD’s number 1 woman Ester Reagan in last game. On the Monday a Mixed Medley was played and one of our teams came 2nd, not losing a game as did the winners. So well done everyone out there, I haven’t named all the players involved, I’m sure word would have gotten round by now  who they are. Have a good week.  Until next time. Kasper.
