YES to Unification of BNSW and WBNSW

 

Pleased to advise that the result of today's vote for amalgamation of Bowls NSW and Women's Bowls NSW was a resounding YES.

All men's zones voted YES including this Zone.  In Zone 15, 19 Clubs voted for the motions, 1 Club voted against and 1 Club did not submit a result.

We do note that the new Bowls New South Wales Limited Board that comes into operation today, does include two Central Coast Bowlers in Lesley Swales of Umina Beach BC, and John Ellison of The Entrance BC.  John was the Finance Director of Bowls NSW and Lesley was a Director of Women's Bowls NSW.  We congratulate Lesley and John on their appointments.   I know that all wish Lesley, John and the rest of the Board every success in implementing the unification.

In the photo above the two Central Coast identities are on either end of the line-up.

Grade 1 Playoff at Charlestown Bowling Club

A spot was up for grabs in the Grade 1 State Pennant Playoff's on Sunday 30th May at Charlestown BC between the Central Coast Conference runner up, Halekulani and the very strong Northern Conference winner, Port City.

Both teams were feeling the effect of the weather early as players looked for anything warm to put on and stay that way. Green was a little tricky for all 24 players, with the cool breeze and a little drizzle making every shot ever harder then normal.

Halekulani trailed early by 10 shots after 17 ends, but then, they looked to have turned the board into there favor with some brilliant conversions by skipper Mark Wheatley and only trailed by 1 shot after 34 ends and it was game on.

Unfortunately for the Halekulani side, Port City found another gear and from then on controlled the match running out winners 66 - 43. Congratulations to Port City.

It was great to see so many spectators from both clubs making the journey to support there team.
