Friday's 2-Bowl Final between Colin Lowe and Rob Ayres was a lesson (for Robert) in consistency. Colin was on the Jack at every end and deserved the win - congrats to Colin!
Sunday's Smorgasbord was a great sucess, with 4 rinks in the new 2-Bowl Triples format. Winners: Wally Mays, Mike Adams and, our newest member, Peiter Laban. Well done to them!. Runners-up were Barry Brookes' team. Best 2nd Game was won by Terry Langdon's team. Raffles were won by Hazel Plunkett, Gerda Otto and Hennie Gommers.
We recently hosted the Blind Bowlers at the Club. This is annual event and it's truly amazing to see them bowling, with the only information available to them - the distance to the Jack! Take note all of you - if they can do it, so can you! haha. And we received their letter of appreciation - see below:

Friday (24th of October) saw a small group from Allianz enjoy a post-conference BBQ lunch and Bowl. They clearly enjoyed themselves and had some great prizes for their round-robin Bowling competition. The 2 winners are also pictured and would make a great addition to our teams.
This Sunday (26th), we have the Blind Bowlers coming for their annual competition against us. We have 13 Bowlers from our Club and this will make for a great day. Thank you to those who have volunteered their time.

Working with Children Check
Members: As we develop the Club's activities for the Community, there is a desire to approach the Schools to add Bowling to their Curriculum. In order to do this, each Member of the Club who assists with this project, must have a WWCC (Working with Children Check). As our illustrious Men's Secretary has found out, it is a very simple process that we would like you all to consider. Here is a quote of Terry's experience:
Hi Members, recently I had to obtain a WWCC needed for a Coaching Course I hope to do.
I am just letting you know it is a very simple procedure. You fill out your application form online, print it out, then take the form to the Post Office where they take a picture of you and that is it.
I took my form to the P.O. on Friday the 15th Sept. and was passed on Monday the 18th. Sept. (weekend included). My card with picture and details will arrive in 2 weeks.
There is no cost involved as we are volunteers.?
