Champion of Champion Singles and Pairs Finals


Chayne Edwards and Rodney Rewko from Terrigal defeated Peter Andrews and Graham Ross from Avoca Beach in a close battle in the beginning but took the lead after the 14th end when the Terrigal pair picked up a 4 and took the lead 16-10. Edwards and Rewko then only lost a further 3 ends and finally won 21-13 after Andrews and Ross conceded after the 20th end, which made Chayne Edwards and Rodney Rewko the 2020 Zone 15 Champion of Champions Pairs winners. We wish them all the best of luck in the NSW State Champion of Champion Pairs, being played at Ettalong Memorial BC in early 2021.



Chayne Edwards from Terrigal won the Zone 15 Champion of Champion Singles for 2020 defeating Gary Merton from Bateau Bay 31-22 after being down 8-4 in the beginning of the match. Edwards is the first ever person from Zone 15 to win both the Champion of Champions Pairs and Singles in the same year! Big achievement from Chayne and we congratulate him on this and wish him all the best in the State Champion of Champion Singles being played at Ettalong Memorial BC early in 2021.

At Halekulani Bowling Club’s AGM last Sunday (8/11/2020), which was attended by199 members, 187 members voted in favour of an Amalgamation with The Mounties Group. Only 4 members voted against and 8 members abstained. It is unheard of to get such a high number of attendees at a bowling club AGM, which only goes to show how important this vote was for the long term future of the Club.

The Mounties Group held their AGM earlier this morning (15/11/2020) and their members also voted in favour of the Amalgamation with Halekulani Bowling Club. This is great news for the Hali members, bowlers and the local community.

I heard that one of the items in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is that Hali green 1, will be turned into synthetic green and have a roof put over it, within 2 years.…how sensational will that be?

Congratulations to all those behind the scenes at Halekulani Bowling Club and The Mounties that made this historic event happen.

I understand that The Mounties members were also due to vote on Amalgamating with Wyong RSL Club today, but I don’t have any news on that as yet…
