NUMBERS may have been down at Tweed Byron District Bowls Association Championship Fours competition, but quality play more than made up for fewer competitors.

TBDBA representative, Judith Tuckey, was at the competiiton and has supplied us with a great match report with excellent photos of the championship as it unfurled.

Meanwhile, here’s how the balls rolled in your club over the past week:

CHERRY ST SANDFLIES

Sunday morning saw the Sandflies hold their second AGM held at Ballina’s Premier and only Bowling Club – Cherry Street Sports.

The Sandflies now in there 33rd year after starting at Cherry Street Sports around midway through 2019.

Now at a club where everything works and a has a huge TAB, the Sandflies can only go forward for hopefully many a year.

The only changes for the 2020/21 year committee is Bowls Organiser Garry Scott taking over after a very tight ballot from Larry Davis who has done a mighty job when you consider the upheaval the Sandflies went through changing clubs midway through the 2019 year so thanks to Larry for that.

A new Committeeman in the shape of Johnny Fuller and welcome to him.

So the current Committee are; President – Johnny Harley, Vice President and the Sandflies newest Life Member Col Pittman, Hon. Secretary Patrick Kearney, Treasurer Bruce Cooper, Bowls organiser Garry Scott and Committee Allan Britt, Johnny Fuller and Dean Wheatland. Chairman of Directors at Cherry Street Sports, Dac Cameron spoke some very kind words and a pat on the back is much better than a kick in the behind anytime so many thanks to him for that.

The Sandflies held a moments silence for recently deceased passed member Freddy Weidesweilder known to the Sandflies and Freddy Nonethewiser.

Many thanks to the support from Management, Members and Staff at Cherry Street Sports for helping us moving into our new home at Cherry Street.

Congratulations to former South Sydney great Col Pittman on achieving Life Membership and joins Alby Waldron, Hans Willems, Patrick Kearney and Col Pittman.

Home game next week and Uncle Festers Little Brown Jug 3 Bowl Pairs is coming up on the 6th of September.

Men’s Bowls

TBDBA Championship Fours have now been completed. Unfortunately, the fallout from the COVID-19 virus has had an impact on the number of nominations. However, many top quality bowlers still entered the fray, resulting in spectators being delighted with the quality of bowls on display.

FAST GREENS: (Rink 12) Open Fours – Ocean Shores Vs. Mullumbimby – Mullum skip Richie Northcott heading off to the mat end to do battle as the players ponder the result to come.
FAST GREENS: (Rink 12) Open Fours – Ocean Shores Vs. Mullumbimby – Mullum skip Richie Northcott heading off to the mat end to do battle as the players ponder the result to come.

Open Fours Results:

With only 7 teams in this year’s comp. Ocean Shores’ P. Tornaros, JT Gray, G. Condie and T. Makin progressed directly to the semi-finals.

Quarterfinals resulted in Cabarita’s D. Sheather, M. Charters, L. Freeman and B. Kelly defeating Condong’s T. Walsh, P. Ayres, D. Hopps and R. Norris; Mullumbimby’s R. Graham, T. Foreman, B. Leeson and R. Northcott def. Ocean Shores’ D. Payne, D. Magnusson, P. Clarke and J. Jones and Condong’s M. Chilcott, W. Peart, D. Cranwell and J. Knight def. Ocean Shores’ D. Blake, T. Mitchell, P McDonald and W. Priest.

Semis, and Team Makin (Ocean Shores) defeated Cabarita’s team Kelly, and Mullumbimby’s team Northcott def. Condongs’ team Knight. Final in this category generated into a battle royal between the Ocean Shores and Mullumbimby teams. However, after overcoming a slow start, the Ocean Shores lads came to the fore and holding a tough Mullum side at bay, claimed victory with a minimal margin.

Seniors Fours Results:

With only six teams nominated, the fickle finger of fate resulted in one team being withdrawn due to border closure problems thus enabling their opposition a free ride to a finals berth.

OCEANS OF TALENT: L to R. Standing – Peter Tornaros, Troy Makin (Skip), Front – Andrew Montgomery, Graeme Condie – Ocean Shores – 2020 TBDBA Open Fours Winners.

However, the other four teams battled it out their quarterfinals with the following results. Kingscliff’s P. Murphy, V. Lewis, G. Searle and G. Sawtell def. Condong’s C. DeBelle, J. Jenkins, D. Evans and J. McDonald and Kingscliff’s S. Massey, W. Bartlett, T. Lee and G. Mullen def. Ocean Shores’ R. Essery, J. O’Connor, P. Quirke and R. Linabury. Semi-finals between Kingscliff club mates teams, skipped by G. Sawtell and G. Mullen respectively, resulted in Mullen‘s team holding a narrow margin throughout to claim a finals berth one shot up. Condong’s G. Cox, J. Andrassy, G. Miller and M. Bambary, who went straight through to the final, faced off against Kingscliff’s team Mullen to create a major battle for a finals victory.

SENIOR CHAMPIONS: L to R. Geoff Mullen (Skip), Terry Lee, Wayne Bartlett, Steve Massey – Kingscliff – 2020 TBDBA Senior Fours Winners.
SENIOR CHAMPIONS: L to R. Geoff Mullen (Skip), Terry Lee, Wayne Bartlett, Steve Massey – Kingscliff – 2020 TBDBA Senior Fours Winners.

While Kingscliff trailed early, a courageous fightback returned the team back into the game with the score on 16-16 on the 20th end.

Last end and T. Lee trailed the jack into the ditch to cement victory for his team.

Reserve Grade Fours Results:

Regrettably only four teams entered this category, resulting in two semi-finals and the final. Bangalow’s G. Swain, I. Holden, J. Nolan and R. Rombouts defeated Ocean Shores’ J. Phillips, D. Pyne, D. Harman and S. Brady in their close scoring semi clash. Oceans Shores’ B. Hay, J. Haywood, D. Hayer and N, Mcleod notched up a handy score to eliminate Cabarita’s J. Madden, E. Marsden, S. Ciercan and K. Foran in their encounter.

Final time and the well seasoned team from Bangalow certainly proved their prowess on the greens with their defeating a strong Ocean Shores team to claim victory in this year’s championship.
