Woodgate Bowls Results
Today our premier event was the final of the Women’s B Grade Consistency between Jacquie Rogerson and Trish Jensen.
Jacquie taking the win over Trish in a really top, hard game!
Consistency has a different scoring system where if you move the kitty more than one meter you sacrifice 5 points, even if your bowl goes with it!
Great shot in a normal game, but a disaster in this game!
Poor Trish moved the kitty not once but twice during the match forfeiting ten points.
The final score of Jacquie 156 to Trish 134 shows what a hard game it was.
Special thanks to Robyn Bishop who was the marker and Marjo Greiner who stood as Umpire for the day.
We also had two games of triples: we may have been low on numbers but we were high on fun with a new interesting twist to the scoring!
First shot was worth one point but second shot was worth two!
This was Donna Smith’s idea to teach us to not abandon hope when the shot bowl was unmovable but to go for the second and limit further damage!
Lots of laughs when the scores were called out!

This afternoon our men decided to finish play early so as to spend some time with our oldest, most loved and respected member Noel Loder.
Noel has made the hard decision to hang up his bowling arm and call it stumps on his bowls journey due to his failing health.
Noel has also given up his drivers license, but thankfully has a Go Go Mobile (read mobility scooter!) so he can scoot down and visit us whenever he feels like some company!
We shall all miss Good Bowl Noel, a real gentleman and a great sport, no one has ever seen Noel loose his cool or be anything other than what he is, a lovely man.
Meanwhile we still have winners and those not so fortunate to acknowledge:
Winners, rink 6:
L. Phil Nelson
S. Archie Bishop
Runner Up, rink 5:

A great day out for the men and we women who came to have a drink with Noel.
Billy’s day, always a great friendly afternoon of social bowls.
We had the whole gambit of weather, firstly really hot, then the wind, then the rain, temperature dropped at least five degrees, then back to hot again!

The Gin Gin Country verses City was won today by Country after four years of trying.
Final scores were Country 295 to Cities 262 with three out of four Woodgate teams winning their rinks.
Our team of Robbie Byrnes, Rowdy Taylor, Ian Goodhew and George Weir won the randomly picked draw on the Sellers Green.
Some great shots from many bowlers in front of a few selectors.
A very entertaining day out.
