Bowler of the Year 2018

The Zone’s most prestigious award is results based with points being allocated for championship wins, runners-up and semi-finals across the various Zone championships. It was a close contest with Umina’s Shane Starkey and Terrigal’s Jeff Watson picking up points in three (3) disciplines for a total of 145 and 155 points respectively. Wyong’s Mark Wheatley was a valiant runner-up with a total of 165 points in three disciplines. The Blue Ribbon Zone Singles    championship commands premium points and that coupled with the Champion of Club Champion Pairs gave Darren Morrison the edge with 175 points.
Congratulations Darren !

Senior Bowler of the Year

This award is also result based with players accumulating points for winning, or being the runner-up or a semi-finalist in the Senior Singles and Senior Pairs. For the past three years Ettalong’s John Roberts has taken ownership of this award and he was well on his way to making it four in a row when he won the Senior Singles. But not to be outdone there was a new boy on the block, we mean by that, someone who was new to the over 60’ranks and he won the Senior Pairs and was the runner-up in the Singles. He accumulated just enough points to narrowly topple JR and take out the Seniors Bowler of the Year award for 2018. Well done Tony !
