BYRON BAY MEN

The Club’s Singles Championships are getting more intense with two semi finalists decided. Bulla Burton in as one after he defeated Aaron Richter-Steers during last week. The other semi spot was taken up by Paul Clark who defeated Toby Schott and then Phil Boyd as well. Mark Brown had a win over Peter Lofts in an early round game as did Brett Luker over Ian Burston and Gavin McPhail defeated Greg Daniels. There will be some interesting clashes to fill the remaining two semi spots.

On the Social scene we have had a few visitors playing and enjoying the beaut conditions to play on. Wednesday’s “Twilight” event saw Lin Theaker skip Joan White and Ian Bailey to the day’s win.

The Saturday competition was won by Georgie Moore, Ray Breckenridge and Robert Rays with Max Donarti and Werner Borkhardt coming second in a field of 20 players out in the sun. Thursday had a big field of social and singles playing and the winners were Phi Boyd and Syl Reid. They were followed in by Peter Carpenter and Queenscliff’s Larry while Paul Bezrouchko won the T Bones.

The Mystery Margins did not go off and will be worth $20 this Thursday. Bruce Catlin and Craig Johnson were the receivers of the Huxley Insurances Losing Rink Drink despite the efforts of Johnson.

LOSING RINK DRINK: At Byron Bay Bruce Carlin and Craig Johnson won the Losing Rink Drink despite the latters robust efforts shown here.

Excellent day and excellent company at Alby’s Football and Hot Dog Day on Sunday morning. It was all sunshine and the lads were all dressed up in their footy gear and good to see all the Parramatta fans coming out of the closet due to the recent run of wins but I think were the most represented team on the day. Even Alby made the day which was good to see and the Hot Dogs after the game made the day I think.
