Kingscliff Men

May 19 – Club Championship News: Nominations are being called for Open Pairs. Nominations close on May 24th and the competition begins on 1st June.

Pennants: After last weekend’s games Kingscliff has an unassailable lead in Divisions 1 and 5 so go into this weekend’s games against Pottsville at Kingscliff having won the pennant but wanting to finish on a winning note. Divisions 2 and 3 will be playing for the pennant in their respective grades. Division 2 is one point ahead of Cabarita whom they play at Cabarita on Saturday. Division 3 is only 4 points behind leaders Ocean Shores whom they play at Kingscliff this Saturday. Unfortunately Division 6 is out of contention after a loss to Cabarita last weekend and will be looking to defeat Condong at Condong when they play this Saturday. Division 7 are in third place and will need to defeat Cabarita this weekend at Cabarita and have other results go their way to win the pennant. Good luck to those in contention and with Division 2, 3 and 7 playing at Cabarita and Kingscliff it would be great to have plenty of supporters on hand to help the bowlers get up.

Tweed Byron District Bowling Association


June 1 – After being rained out on 31 May the District Pennant Play-off between Ocean Shores was completed on 1 June.  Cabarita Beach, in winning the three games, defeated Ocean Shores to become the Div. 6 winners.  With District Pennant and Championships now completed, our winners can now have a break until June 21 when Zone One Pennant Play-offs commence.  Venues for the play-offs are as follows;  June 21 only Divs. 1 and 2 – Brunswick Heads;

May 26 – All District Singles finals were conducted at Pottsville Bowling Club 25 May on greens that were perfectly prepared for the events, many thanks to Club green keeper Paul Earl. Rounds and semis in the Open class singles had provided great entertainment with top class bowling and close scoring from all contestants  The final was a tussle between Kingscliff’s Ian Taylor and Condong’s Greg Moss. Taylor took control from the beginning making Moss work extra hard for his shots in what was a great game from start to finish.  Congratulations to this year’s Open Singles Champion Ian Taylor and Runner-up Greg Moss. Well done, guys.

Reserve grade singles rounds were closely contested also with the final to be a clincher between Cabarita’s Damien Delgard and Bangalow’s Richard    Rombouts.  These two very fine bowlers, both disabled, conquered all before them as they progressed through the elimination rounds against tough able bodied adversaries proving that disabilities show no bounds. In a final that can only be described as the Match of the Day, this battle for the title displayed great bowling prowess from both contenders as they advanced through the game matching each other  on the scoreboard.  It was anyone’s game until the last few ends when Delgardo was able to wear Rombouts down and take control to give him the match. Congratulations to Damien Delgardo, this year’s Reserve Grade Singles Champion and the Runner-up Richard Rombouts on an absolute thriller of a game,

Senior grade singles, with 20 contenders vying for the title, revealed some great games and super scoring with close finishes by many of the contestants.   Peter Murphy and Greg Barrack made the final an all in Kingscliff vs. Kingscliff affair after going through the rounds unscathed. In a very evenly matched encounter, Murphy held a narrow lead through most of the game.  Barrack then stepped up a notch and with a very determined effort slowly took control and went ahead to take the title.  Congratulations to Greg Barrack, this years Senior Grade Singles Champion and Runner-up Peter Murphy on a great game.

District President, Jim Clark, would like to thank Mullumbimby, Cabarita Beach and Pottsville B.C’s. hosts for this year’s Singles Championship events.

TBDWBA Championship Singles proved to be one of the most exciting events to attend this year. Nominations from experienced campaigners, together with new bowlers, set the platform for a great tournament.  Spectators were treated to a feast of high standard bowling from beginning to end of this competition as many games went down to the wire with victors only being able to  claim the spoils with their last bowl.

Cudgen Leagues have now completed their Club Singles championships.  Evergreen Daphne Edwards is to be congratulated on taking out the title.  Daphne, in a close game against Beverley Hall, managed to stay in front all the way and with superb draw bowling was able to keep the opposition at bay to take the title.  Well done, both ladies.

The Open Triples final at Kingscliff was quite a thriller – so said the winners.  Congratulations to Rita Butler, Eileen Taylor and Colleen Smith (Skip), this year’s Triples champions and the runners-up Elaine Downes, Catherine Manderson and Barbara Mirls (Skip) on a great game.  The Club Pairs was another great game with Di Jones and Sandra Akers being able to overtake Rita Butler and Colleen Smith in a very close encounter to take home the title.  Congratulations to both teams on a super game.

Cabarita Beach have finalised their Club Singles with Joy Lake taking the championship title in a final against Julie Kent.  Congrats ladies on a great performance.

The Barbara Sprengel (Ocean Shores) v. Elizabeth Fleming (Cudgen Leagues) semi was a hard game for both contestants with Fleming eventually taking the game. The other semi was a all in Pottsville affair where George Moore took control early in the match against Coral Withers  However, a shower of rain and a big fight back from Coral enabled Wither to go forward to the final.

The final of this “Blue Ribbon” event resulted in a repeat of last year’s decider when Elizabeth Fleming and Coral Withers battled it out for the 2013 title.  This year, in perfect conditions, Withers took an early lead and continued holding throughout the game for a comfortable victory. Congratulations to the 2014 Singles Champion, Coral Withers, on her back to back Championship win and the Runner-up Elizabeth Fleming on a great game.

District President Betty Croft would like to thank Brunswick Heads, Cabarita and Ocean Shore B.C’s. hosts for this years Singles Championships.

May 19 – TBDWBA Championship Triples have now been been completed.  The high standard of bowls throughout the competition certainly made for great entertainment across the board. In the semi finals Barbara Sprengel’s team faced off against Helen

Dobbyn’s girls in a very close game that could have gone either way with the Ocean Shores getting up by one shot. The Withers vs. Hall semi saw the Cudgen team slow out of the blocks with Pottsville leading early and continuing on to take the game.

The final between Pottsville and Ocean Shores began on an even keel with the teams scoring alternatively to the eighth end. Team Withers then settled down to collect multiple shots during the remainder of the game to take out the title. Congratulations to Merle Jackson Patricia Pollard and Coral Withers (Skip), this year’s champions, and the runner-up Nola Gartner, Karen Gallard and Lynette McGowran (sub for Barbara Sprengel, Skip) on a great game.  Well done, ladies.

Brunswick Heads B.C. Club Pairs final was a tough game with Karen Peacey and Beverley Rose (Skip) challenging Kerry Dexter and Lorraine McCormick (Skip) for the title. With team Rose taking the lead from the beginning team McCormick fought back strongly to catch up and go on to win in an absolute nail biter of a contest.  Congratulations to both teams on a well played game.

May 12 – The TBDWBA Championship Open and Senior Fours are now complete with the finals conducted at Pottsville B.C. 6 May.  With the high calibre of bowlers contesting these titles, great bowling displays were enjoyed by spectators and players alike throughout the whole competition.,

The Senior Fours final was an all in Cudgen vs. Cudgen affair as the club mates faced off against each other.. Scoring was even stevens up to the 6th end.  Team Hall then moved up a notch to collect a four on the next end and continued slowly to forge ahead. Team Durrough had a resurgence on the 12th end and went on scoring to bring themselves back into the game.  But, alas, too late.  On the 17th end Hall’s team again took over control and went on to take out the title.  Congratulations to Beverley Hall (Skip), Patricia Pieterse, Rosalie Lowe and Lorna Arnott, this years District Senior Fours Champions and the Runners-up Marlene Durrough (Skip), Daphne Edwards, Faye Turner and Joan Highfield on a great performance.

The Open Fours final was a dual between teams from Brunswick Heads and Pottsville.  The first semi final saw the Pottsville girls involved in a great tussle with a Mullumbimby team and only being able to succeed in gaining a berth in the final with a few shots to spare. The other semi had teams from Brunswick Heads and Condong do battle for a shot at the final.  The Condong ladies were holding their own up to the 17th end but then the Brunswick team, with a new lease of life, picked up 10 shots in the next 3 ends to take the game.  The first ten ends of the final between these two semi winners was on an even keel until the Brunswick ladies knuckled down to some really serious bowling, showed no mercy,  and carried on for a comfortable win. Congratulations to Beverley Gawned, Jenny Meinel, Christine Lawrance and Eveline Marks (Skip) who displayed beautiful bowling throughout the competition to take out the Championship title and the Runners-up Lidia Bennett, Jennifer Porter, Carol Smith and Wendy Fielding (Skip).  Well done, girls.

District President Betty Croft would like to thank Kingscliff and Pottsville W.B.C’s, hosts for this competition.
