Bob Tomkins on the follow through for Seymour against Nagambie.




This week is your last chance to enter the Club Triples because we have moved the closing date to Sunday and the draw will be done on Monday. So if you have not entered and wish to do so, there are a few days still remaining.

The CBD State Title Singles (men and women) will be held at Seymour on Sunday. Come along and enjoy some good bowling. The Club will take lunch orders for anyone wishing to stay for the second round in the afternoon.

The final of the Regional Novice Event which was to be played last week, was cancelled due to weather conditions. It will be played tomorrow at Wunghnu at 4pm. We wish Adele good bowling and the best of luck for a great day.

The Social Committee reminds all those booked for our Christmas evening on December 20 that meals must be paid for by Friday. Please ensure you have done this because some members have missed out as a result of limited seating. If you are not going please let Rita Collins know ASAP. After payment you will be issued with an entry ticket.

All tickets for the Christmas Hamper to be returned by Friday please.

Midweek pennant

GV2 went to East Shepparton to have a convincing win 16-77 to 0-68.

GV3 playing at Rushworth had a taste of summer, but that did not worry them, as they won all rinks, 16-82 to 0-59.

CBD1 — Seymour Blue hosted Kilmore at home last week having a good win on two rinks to beat the ladder leaders. Seymour 14-81 defeated Kilmore 2-63. Keep up the good work. Seymour Gold travelled to Wallan to be defeated on all rinks. Wallan 16-85 — Seymour Gold 0-47.

Saturday pennant

GV1 — It was a perfect day for bowls and we found out why Shepparton Golf are the division leaders — because they got on top of our game straight from the start and never relented. We believe we can learn from these games and try to emulate their tactics for our future games.

As everybody knows we are in the process of rebuilding our list of players and to gain experience, one way of doing this is by playing teams that are a lot better than us.

GV5 — Seymour travelled to Nagambie where they continued in great style defeating their opposition 12-74 to 4-69.

CBD1 — The result of this encounter was Broadford 16-98 defeating Seymour 2-85.

CBD2 — Seymour drew with Broadford 8-67.

The final of the womens state pairs was played on Sunday at Yea — the winners were Denise Hogan and Jenny Kreemers (Seymour) who defeated Judy Shelley (Alexandra) and Lyn Gleeson (Broadford). Congratulations to both pairs.

What happened to division one at Seymour is the question — Saturday’s pennant results shows the Kilmore team demolished Seymour VRI on the synthetic green at Seymour. The ‘‘home’’ game played at Seymour against a strong Kilmore team who took the points leaving Seymour VRI outside the top four on the ladder, dropping from third position to fifth.

Division two travelled to Kilmore winning all rinks to retain their top position on the ladder, while the Goulburn Valley division five team playing at Euroa won all their rinks by a huge margin of 61 shots overall, also bolstering their top of the ladder position.

Division one in their game against Kilmore had two competitive rinks but neither was able to head their opposition when it counted.

Division two had a better result at Kilmore, although the game was a lot closer than the scores indicated. The Seymour VRI team remained on the top of the ladder defeating Kilmore, winning all rinks and 19 shots up overall.

The team competing in the Goulburn Valley District travelled to Euroa and once again showing superiority winning all rinks with a massive 61 shots up overall. All rinks set up a big score including another magnificent seven by David Emmerson’s rink on the third end.

On Saturday division one plays Seymour in the local derby at the Tallarook St green with the expectations to win this game to regain their finals aspirations.

Division two will be on the road to Broadford for their ‘‘home’’ game against Seymour expecting a win on form but not to be complacent. Saturday will be the last round of pennant for the Central Bowls clubs prior to the Christmas break.

The Goulburn Valley division five team will play at the number two green against Stanhope and expect to continue their winning ways.

Reminder that members should return their Christmas raffle tickets before the Club’s Christmas function to be held at the bowling 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.

Congratulations to Jenny on winning the midweek (ladies) championship in a closely-fought game against runner-up Pam — well done to both ladies.

On the pennant front: the Match Committee have been faced with varying numbers of unavailable players and have been fortunate enough to have those players who continue to make themselves available when and if needed to ‘‘fill the gaps’’ as it were.

Last week our pennant fortunes again varied with our midweek division two winning against Euroa but division four coming up short against Kyabram. On Saturday we enjoyed two wins as division three was 100 per cent successful against Violet Town and division six was handed a forfeit by Murchison.

A reminder that the scheduled Mystery Meal has been changed to Saturday after pennant — no twilight bowls on Friday as the club is hosting a function for another organisation.

Also the Christmas break-up will be held on December 22 (as per the syllabus); please check the noticeboard and next week’s paper for more information.

Belated birthday greetings are extended to Mary and to past member John Starey, for their milestone birthdays.

Cheerio to anyone not feeling well.

Last minute reminer — the Christmas hamper raffle is now in progress and tickets (and money) are to be returned on December 22, if not earlier to Joyce. Also items for the hamper are still required.


Round 10 Nagambie midweek pennant players travelled to Tatura and had a great win. Vicki’s team had Rob Smith filling in for Dorothy Lewry and collected an eight on the last end to give them a 32 shot win. Sharon’s team also performed well with Deane back in the side with a 19 shot win.

That made it an overall win of 75/24 and collecting the full 14 points.

Yesterday we played away again to Euroa — results next week.

— Sharon Hall

Saturday pennant division two had a 14-4 win over Hill Top, winning on two rinks. The team plays Tatura at home on Saturday and the fives travel to Mooroopna.

In division five George Pianta’s team had a good win as did Higgo’s boys, but their wins could not cover the team skippered by Max which went down badly.

The WL Forbes Pairs are down to the final with Greg Brack and Robert Smith playing the Nichols brothers Peter and Daniel — this should be a good game to watch.

Also the A-grade is down to four with George Brack playing Mike Nolan and Max Fothergill up against Glen Weatherall.

Sunday is the Ray White and Elloura rotation triples — still vacancies. Let’s hope we have a nice day for this event.

Night bowls is on Wednesday nights. Good bowling.
