All the action from the rinks, including Avenel and Nagambie.
The jackpot triples last week was won by Lewis Catton, Richard Maggs and Neal Harris with +11. The jackpot was not won.
Club singles and pairs games are entering their final stages — Don Lawton defeated Dennis Klein in an exciting game last week — winning only on the last end. Bill Solomon defeated Brett Spargo in an entertaining game. Lawton and Solomon will play their final along with the women finalists (who have not been established yet) on November 17.
It was a disappointment last week to have to abandon the Dot Carroll Tournament due to poor entries. However, the entries for our next tournament on Monday (Cup eve) are filling quickly. We are anticipating an enjoyable evening.
Again last week we had a mixed bag. Both the CBD division one teams lost — but the losses were respectable. Seymour Gold played a great match taking one rink from a superior Eildon team. Liz Gee’s rink is to be congratulated for their win 32 to 20. They will travel to Kilmore next week to take on the strong Kilmore team. The Seymour Blue team made the trip to Wallan, going down on all rinks but only losing by 12 shots. Great effort.
The Goulburn Valley teams played round six last Tuesday. Division two went to Shepp Park and played under the roof. They must have enjoyed that, as they were triumphant on all rinks. Division three travelled to Euroa; they enjoyed their day also, winning two of the three rinks.
The division one Goulburn Valley team had a hard struggle in all rinks. The scores were even before afternoon tea with some great bowls being played, but unfortunately Kyabram got the better of us and that’s how it finished up. Players that stood out for Seymour were Wayne Flint, Eliott Jarman, Alison Hall, Peter Tennant and Bill Solomon.
I have no other reports for the other three teams except to say that division five Goulburn Valley defeated Stanhope on all three rinks — well done. CBD division one was soundly defeated by Seymour VRI, losing all four rinks to a more polished team. Division two who also played Seymour VRI on our home green had a good win by defeating VRI on all three rinks.

Round two of the Central Bowls Division on Saturday resulted in a huge win for the division one team who were at home to sister club Seymour in the battle for the SAD Trophy, played in honor of respected former member of both clubs, Stuart Arthur Doyle. The home green advantage was obviously too much for Seymour to overcome as they were soundly defeated by VRI who won on all rinks for a combined margin of 62 shots — a huge confidence booster following on from last week’s disappointing loss to Kilmore.
Division two were unable to reproduce their winning form from last week and showed their inexperience on Seymour’s plastic fantastic going down on all rinks for a 15-shot loss.
Meanwhile the division five side continued on their merry way with what could only be described as a severe mauling of Hilltop in the Goulburn Valley competition winning their fourth game in a row to sit third on the ladder. All three rinks completed comfortable wins for an incredible 97 shot victory.
On Saturday division one will travel to Yea and play on their plastic surface while division two will play host Alexandra Maroon at the VRI green and division five will be away against the ladder leading Shepparton RSL One which will give a clearer indication of their standing in this competition.
Once again Bob Philp has returned to hospital in Melbourne for further treatment following another setback after his ankle surgery. We wish him well and look forward to his return to Seymour soon.

Not much to report this week although our midweek pennant sides did have a successful day last Tuesday. Division two, after slumping to fifth following its unsuccessful venture to Seymour, reclaimed a top four position by taking all 16 points on offer and beating opponent Mooroopna Golf.
Meanwhile on our home green division four enjoyed a day out against Colbinabbin, getting over the line by a large margin and gaining the maximum 14 points. Well done to both sides. Unhappily the Saturday pennant hasn’t quite settled into stride although division three did have three of the four teams taste victory but not by a big enough margin to compensate for the fourth’s loss — an overall loss by three shots.
The previous week division six was given a win when Kyabram forfeited early in the week while the division three side fell short at Shepparton RSL.

Nagambie travelled to Stanhope to play round six of midweek pennant. They struggled all day to catch Stanhope’s strong team and unfortunately couldn’t match their skills. Stanhope collected the whole 14 points.
