Saturday Teams

6-a-Side Section 2

Our Section 2 team’s season roller coaster continues, that section had a team withdraw before the first round leaving them with a bye and this past weekend Coburg Moreland could not find enough players, and they had a walkover.  They instead ended up playing an inter-club game and by all reports they all enjoyed the day.

Next week they are away at Flemmington/Kensington on Darby day.

6-a-Side Section 3

We hosted Hawthorn, a solid game for the team with both rinks getting up.

Next week they are away at Box Hill RSL

Division 4 Section 4

This week we travelled out to Lilydale, the trip was long and slow with road works everywhere.  The teams started out well, but in the end Lilydale were too good for us, getting up on all rinks.

Next week we are at home to Templestowe

Division 2 Section 4

The rough start to the season continues, with the team just not finding its feet, this week they travelled to North Balwyn, with one rink getting up it was not quite enough to get over the line.

This week we at home to Ringwood.

Mid Week Pennant

Division 3 Section 7

Mid week keep pulling out the last end wins.  Going in to the final end of the game against the Elsternwick Club scores were all level.   With R. Martyn’s rink picking up 3 on the last end to seal the win with two rinks up.

Region Title Games.

This week saw the first of games of the Novice Titles we had two of our Pennant bowlers take part.

Templestowe hosted the novice titles this year and while the weather started out overcast the afternoon games were in bight Melbourne sunshine.

Unfortunately our two players didn’t get up in their games but they had good games, and had a great time playing.

2018 LePine Triples

Skill on the green

The 2018 LePine Triples was held on the 18th of August. Last year we ran it on the 1st Sept, this allowed our green-keeper to work on the green during a good growth period.  This clashed with a number of club practice matches and Father’s day. The Committee with our Major sponsor of the Day Le Pine Funeral Services, we set an earlier date of 18th of August.

History of Kieser.

The origins of Kieser extend back to 1966 in Switzerland when founder Werner Kieser opened the first Kieser centre. Werner was a boxer and a wrestler in the early 1950s. After an unfortunate boxing accident, he began to look into strength training as a way to speed his recovery. During this time, strength and resistance training was virtually unknown and Werner made it his mission to become the voice for this new type of exercise. Now, over 50 years later, there are over 130 facilities throughout Europe and Kieser is known as the world leader in strength training for health.

Results of the Le Pines Triples for 2017

First bowl of the season

First bowl of the season

The Le Pine Triples Tournament 2nd September 2017.

The day started with some of our members busy in the kitchen making delicious ham and salad rolls and preparing platters for our visitors. Thanks to all who helped purchase and prepare the food.

The event commenced with our President Michael Walker welcoming  our Guest the Hon. John Pesutto and the 18 teams.

The Tournament and our 2017/18 bowls season were then officially opened by John Pesutto who then rolled down a bowl to open  the green, and a very good bowl at that.

The Tournament consisted of three games of ten ends of two bowl triples. After the first game nibbles and drinks were enjoyed around the bar.  Thanks to Travis for his great work behind the bar. Then out for another 10 ends of bowls, the weather was not the best but the rain was only short lived and the wind not too bad. Following this set of games afternoon tea was served in the dining room, where all enjoyed the ham and salad rolls and the odd beverage as well.

Back to the green and the final game, with the prizes still up for grabs with some of the better performed teams playing each other. Then while the players enjoyed and drink and a barbeque cooked by Damo and helpers or score board official Julie Drummond did her final calculations.

The winners were. Mick Diorietes, Rod and Don Clancy the only team with 3 wins taking away the first prize of $540.
