Daylesford bowler Frank Peniguel was in Tatura on Thursday to take on Tatura Bowls Club champion Jason Carter over 10 ends.February 19, 2014 4:45am
He also took on club champion Jock Hicks at Hill Top in the morning, as part of his endeavours to gain entry into the Guinness Book of Records for the most lawn bowls clubs played by an individual across 12 months.
Peniguel, 70, has spent the past 10 weeks visiting as many Victorian clubs as possible before heading across to Tasmania.
The Tatura clubs were just two of the clubs visited in the north-east last week in what is a long trek if he is to make it into the record books.
According to The Shot, Bowls Victoria’s official publication, Peniguel is aiming to bowl at 18 clubs each week, which will give him a total of 936 clubs during the year, ‘‘but logistics dictate it will not be that simple,’’ he said.
Peniguel said he was enjoying the challenge so far.
He had a video camera set up on the green to record part of the game, which in turn is burned onto a disk and forwarded to London as proof of each game. A certificate, signed by two independent witnesses is also required.
