The Bay Bowlers celebrated their 40th Anniversary



On 29th April 2019, The Bay Bowlers celebrated their 40th Anniversary.

The Bay Bowlers was originally Cencomas, a social sporting club of the Central Coast Masonic Club which was ultimately taken over by the Wyong Rugby League Club around 2000 and traded as WallarahBay. When the Wyong Rugby League Club took over the Wyong Bowling Club in 2003 Wyong became the home club of Cencomas and it was renamed The Bay Bowlers.

The Anniversary celebration was a very enjoyable day and was attended by many old members and former presidents.  The weather was beautiful and it was great to see lots of happy bowlers on the greens, playing yardstick, whilst other old friends caught up with each other inside.
  

The atmosphere was really fun and festive. A barbeque lunch with salad was followed by celebratory cake and everyone received a birthday gift.

Former President: Rick Greener
  Thanks to everyone who attended on the day and contributed to such a successful 40th Anniversary celebration.

Central Coast Seniors out of Senior IZ Sides Championship in Quarter Final


After winning their Section, the Central Coast Seniors Side lost by one shot in the quarter final of the 2019 Senior Inter-Zone Sides Championship.  For the first time ever, a quarter-final was played of the sides that came first or second in sectional play .   It proved to be the undoing of Zone 15 as they lost their quarter final to Manning (Zone 11) by one shot.  The heroes of this game were John Robert's team of himself as skip, Greg Pigram, lead, Alan Lewin 2nd, Col Passfield 3rd.  They had a 33 to 10 win over the Manning side skipped by bowls legend Rex Johnson. As well as producing this mighty win, John Robert's team nearly won the match as they were holding the required shots on the last end until Rex with his last bowl moved the jack to only loose the end by 2 shots not the 3 we needed.

As defending champions Zone 15 had a shock 2 point loss in the first game against Greater Western Sydney (Zone 5).  John Robert's team were  the only winning rink.   In the 2nd game order was restored with a 3 rink win over South Eastern NSW (Zone 7).  The best rink win was by the four of Lee Thompson, Phil Westcott, Lindsay Willding & Tony Shoebridge.

This meant that Central Coast had to defeat Sydney South West/Zone 12 (the side they played in last year's final) to be sure of getting into the quarter final).  They had a resounding 30 point win over Sydney South West 72 to 42 with the side of Gary Frost, Peter Hamill, Bill Constantine & Dick Thornton recording a 15 point rink win.   South Eastern NSW had a surprise win over Greater Western Sydney giving Central Coast the Section win.

While it is true that the Central Coast Side including Reserve Tony Swain, Side Manager Garry Ellis and Chairman of Selectors David Cameron had hoped to do better, by winning a Section they still established Central Coast Zone 15 as one of the strongest Senior sides in NSW.

CANTON BOWLERS DIG DEEP FOR CAMP BREAKAWAY

Camp Breakaway representative, Denise, holding a cheque for $2,500 presented by Canton Mixed Bowlers President Dave Gooch and Vice-President Raelene Dillon.

$2500 was raised during the Camp Breakaway Charity Day held at Canton Beach Sports Club on Thursday 9th May, and marked the ninth year that Canton Mixed Bowlers have held this event.
The format for the day was mixed triples played over two games of 11 ends with lunch in between.
At 10am 84 eager bowlers took to the greens to do battle for the generous prize money on offer and, of course, for the prestige of being declared the winners of a major event on the calendar of Canton Mixed Bowlers.
Camp breakaway is a non-profit charitable organisation and a registered service provider for the NDIS, but receives no government funding.  This facility specialises in providing much needed respite care for people with disabilities and their carers.
The amount raised in one day was a credit to the hardworking Canton Mixed Bowlers Committee but would not have been possible without the support of Wyong Leagues Club by waiving the Green Fees, and member, Paul Pollack, who canvassed local businesses for donations that enabled a huge raffle to be run.
A big thank you to all who participated to make this day such an outstanding success.
