Covering the Goulburn and Murray valleys

Bowlers wanted for triples

Weekly bowls round up from Seymour, VRI, Avenel and Nagambie.

December 5, 2013 4:33am

Linda Rohde lines one up for Seymour against Mooroopna.



Tuesday last the Jackpot Triples was a close affair with the winners being Bob Tomkins, John Cummins, Luke Spargo +17, the runner-up on + 16 was Jean Chamley, Allen Dingey and Garry Broderick.

We are looking for more entries for the Jack Sloane two-bowl singles event to be played on February 2. This is an event named after a great player and Seymour member; all members should make an effort to keep this prestigious event going.

Also more entries are encouraged for the Club Triples – both men and women, so grab an entry form and put the money and form into the safe soon.

Seymour is hosting the CBD state title singles for men and women on December 15 and the club is looking for another three markers for the morning session - roll up at 9.10am. If anyone who feels they could fill these positions, please let a member of the Bowls Committee know ASAP.

Midweek pennant

CBD1 - Seymour Blue ventured to Eildon and came away with the points 15-71 to 1-66. This means two wins and a draw against a very competitive side, well done.

Seymour Gold went to Broadford having a hard day where they lost all three rinks. Keep trying it will happen.

GV2 - continued on their merry way winning 14-83 to Kyabram 2-64.

GV3 - were also at home to Mooroopna Golf where they had a nice win 14-83 to 2-56.

Saturday pennant

CBD1 - Seymour travelled to Alexandra, but wished they didn’t go as they were beaten by a better side 18-138 to 0-58.

Saturday’s pennant results were once again pleasing as division one almost had the perfect score against Wallan with one rink being two shots up at the last end, but lost the last end for a tied game. In another rink Greg Jones’s team scored a perfect eight on the seventh end that kept their lead up by at least that much for the remainder of the game.

Division two playing at the number two green in a close game against Wallan winning two rinks held out to win by eight shots.

The division five Goulburn Valley team continued on their winning run against Shepparton RSL (2) team winning all rinks with an overall 20 shots that included a magnificent seven won on the 23rd end by David Emmerson’s rink. The team have now played all teams in their competition and have won all their games except for one against Shepparton RSL (1) who only took a one-shot advantage. At the end of the first round Seymour VRI is top of the ladder in their first season in the competition.

Division one in their game against Wallan headed the score most of the day being 21 shots up at afternoon tea finishing off with a 19-shot win overall.

Division two remained on the top of the ladder despatching Wallan with an eight shot advantage - 14-80 to 2-72.

The team competing in the Goulburn Valley District travelled to Shepparton RSL to finish the first round of the draw against Shepparton RSL (2). Winning all rinks and a 20-shot win deserved a promotion to the top of the ladder and finished off a perfect run for the club.

On Saturday division one once again are seeking a venue for their blockbuster game against Kilmore, a game that needs to be won to hold a finals berth. Division two will travel to Kilmore for their ‘‘away’’ game to hold their top position on the ladder. The Goulburn Valley division five team start the second round, playing all the teams again expect to continue their winning ways against Euroa away.

Reminder that a pre-Christmas dinner will be held at the Railway Club Hotel after bowls on December 14 and the club Christmas function will be held at the Bowing Club on December 21. There will be a wheelbarrow placed in the club rooms for a raffle and members are requested to place suitable items in the barrow.

Trevor Young from Kilmore competed in State Finals of 60 and Over Singles at Bundoora last Wednesday, successfully advancing to the quarter finals before being eliminated.

CBD has one representative in the regional final of Novice singles tomorrow and we wish Adele Aitken from Seymour all the best.

Congratulations to Matt McMaster and Phil Skehan on selection in Regional Pennant Side to compete in State Finals at Corowa in January.

On Sunday the State Pairs Women’s Final will be played at Yea between a Seymour team of Denise Hogan and Jenny Kreemers and a composite team of Judy Shelley (Alexandra) and Lyn Gleeson (Broadford).

State Pairs Men will play quarter and semi-finals at Yea on Sunday with Final to be decided at a later date.


As mentioned last week the next Mystery Meal, set down for December 13, has been re-scheduled to December 14 after the pennant. The club is hosting a function for another organisation on the Friday. So could all members please note this date change in their syllabus and diary/calendar.

Our pennant fortunes continue to fluctuate from week to week even between Tuesday to Saturday. Last Tuesday our midweek sides enjoyed wins against Shepparton Park on our home turf but this result was not emulated by either of the Saturday sides. The division three side went down to Shepparton Golf after some closely fought battles and was able to salvage six points from the six-shot loss. Unhappily the division six side seems to have been overwhelmed by their East Shepp suffering a fairly big loss. But this is the nature of the game after all.

Congratulations to Noel on his win in the Club Championship and also to Dennis as runner-up. The midweek champion final between Jenny and Pam will be played on Sunday at 11am. The small gathering of spectators on Sunday last were treated to some very good bowling as the two men played their final and four women played to advance to their final.

A reminder that the Christmas break-up will be held on December 22. The format is social bowls followed bt a meal and a chance for a final catch up before the festive season fully decends on us. Keep an eye on the noticeboard for more infomation.

Birthday greetings are extended to past member Val Ryan for the 10th.

Cheerios to John and Len as they continue to battle ill-health; it was good to see John and Ann watching the bowling last Sunday.


Round 10 of midweek pennant saw Nagambie versus Dookie at home. Unfortunately we got another lesson in bowls on our home ground.

The Dookie players had no problems learning the run of the green and nailed nearly every shot against us. Vicki’s team once again started the game off well but after lunch the struggle began when Dookie jumped ahead and stayed there for the remainder of the game. Sharon’s team could not match the brilliant bowling from her opposition team and were unable to get close. Thanks for Margaret Page for helping out for her first game for the season - sorry we couldn’t make it a good return.

Condolences to our past member Hazel Males on the passing of her husband our life member Ronald Males last Saturday. Ron was a valued member of the Nagambie bowls club and will be sadly missed.

- Sharon Hall

Division five took the top spot in the write up with an excellent win over ladder leader Shepparton RSL. The players all put their best play into action. It was a complete reversal of form from the week before on a very heavy green.

Division two lost to Shepparton Golf by six shots - even though they were narrowly defeated, with four points should hold a place in the four.

This week the twos travel to Hilltop and the fives play Seymour at home. Don’t forget to enter in rotations triples on December 15.

Social Bowls got away to a good start last Wednesday night, don’t forget name in by 6.30pm play starts at 7pm.
