2018 Veterans Inter Zone

The very first Veteran's (Over 70) Inter-Zone Sides Championship was played on 24th and 25th October 2018 at the Grandviews Bowling Club.

There were only five (5) Zones in attendance but this event is sure to grow into an event of the size of the Open and Seniors (Over 60) Inter Zone Sides championship which also started with limited numbers of Zones competing.

The Zones entered in the inaugural event were Zones 2, 9, 10, 13 and 15.

Congratulations to a neighbors Zone 2 who won the event to become the inaugural Veteran's Inter-Zone Championships. 

Unfortunately Zone 15 did not have a good tournament losing all games against the other Zones.  However on two occasions we won two of the three ends to be narrowly defeted on the big board .  The teams were Michael Bell (TE), Pat Taylor (Tou), Tony Swaine (Ter) and Peter Hamill l who won 3 games, Allan Rhodes (UB) Lindsay Adamson (UB),  Alan Lewin (Ett) and Lindsay Willding (Hal) who won 2 games, and Neil Williams (TE), Daryl Walton (Mun), Michael Foley (Ter) and Phil Flippence (TE) who won their last game after an adjustment to the team..

The weather held up providing good playing conditions and the green was superb. .

For more information check out the Zone 13 Zone 13 'Central & Southern Sydney' Bowling Association Inc. facebook page.

We at Zone 15 will be hosting this event next year and we will be working hard to ensure that more Zone Sides are entered.

Brothers Back-Up to Take Out Rookie Pairs

Bateau Bay’s Jamie and Warren Power were all smiles in taking out the Central Coast section of the Bowls NSW Rookie Pairs
After playing each other in the Rookie Singles final a week earlier, Jamie and Warren Power from Bateau Bay BC teamed together to contest the Central Coast section of Bowls NSW Rookie Pairs played on their home turf at Bateau Bay.
Their consistency in drawing to the jack was a feature in winning their way through the sectional rounds and with a crushing win in the semi-final  they became the tournament favorites over the Umina Beach duo of Jeff Kennedy and Trevor Foulkes who had played steady bowls to gain a berth in the final.
After seven ends it was four all and it was shaping up to go down to the wire, but the Power boys moved up a gear and their consistency once again proved a match winner to take out the final 12-6.
 It was a top performance with Warren taking out the coveted double of the Rookie Singles and Pairs.
Both Warren and Jamie will now progress to the Bowls NSW State Finals to be played at Raymond Terrace BC over the weekend of 10th & 11th November in their quest to go all the way and win a State title.
Jamie and Warren Power receive congratulations from Umina Beach’s Trevor Foulkes and Jeff Kennedy

Brothers Contest Rookie Singles Final

Warren Power just had the wood over his younger brother Jamie to take out the Central Coast section of the Rookies final.
A strong field of forty eight (48) players took to the greens at Toukley District BC to contest the Central Coast section of the Bowls NSW Rookie Singles. Tricky weather conditions and   intermittent rain fully tested the players’ versatility and skills set. The final was a family affair with the Power brothers, Warren and Jamie, from Bateau Bay keen to win their way through to the State Final to be played at Raymond Terrace BC on Sunday 11th November 2018. It was a closely contested final with the scores being leveled at eleven and fourteen all when Warren drew three great shots to snare victory at 17up in this shortened version of the game. The Rookies contest continues to grow in stature each year and despite less than ideal weather conditions this event was played in great spirits and a credit to these new players to our game………………….
