All 2023 Club Competitions are on the Competition boards at the Club. All members are asked to check the draws and continue to arrange games by mutual agreement. With the WBBC being played games need to be organized mid-week or if you play someone that works, you need to look at alternative days and times e.g. Sunday mornings when QRI play or perhaps starting a game at 5.30pm and finishing under lights (would be nice and cool) Reminder: When playing your first round match you have to pay the additional $1 nomination fee when paying your green fees.

Results: Championship Singles: Cameron Walker def Kerry Melham 25-23, Keegan Lankowski def Steve Coleman 25-13, Mark Mizzi def Ross Hussey 25-16. B Grade Singles: Jamieson Morgan def Gary Manser 25-19.

Today we had a corker of a game in the Open Mens singles competition between Clinton (Oyster) Dowling and Woodgate newcomer John (Robbo) Robinson.
The large crowd of spectators were treated to a lesson on how to play the game with some amazing shots from both players.
The game was anyone’s right to the last brilliantly played bowl by Oyster to take Robbo’s holding lead of four, moving the kitty back to take three and turning it into his own victory!
Thanks to Gordon Nuttall who stood as marker and Paul Rogerson who was our Umpire for the day.

Friday 24.02.2023:
What a feast of great games we’ve been treated to in the last couple of days!
Today we had the final of the Open Mens Fours Competition and another game in the Mens Open Singles.
Final first:
Team Winzar playing against Team Bishop.
Team Bishop as you would know (if you’ve been reading my posts) have come into this match on the back a couple of hard fought/fabulous wins.
The conditions were challenging to say the least, gusting wind, a stop for rain and the resulting heavy track made a test of skill for all bowlers involved.
Team Winzar emerged victorious after a slow start, possibly handled the conditions better than the opposition.
An entertaining game from start to finish, with some great bowls played.

Team Winzar:
L. Trevor Christensen
S. John Robinson

  1. Clinton Dowling
    S. Bob Winzar

Team Bishop:
L. Dennis Smith
S. Wayne Stanley

  1. Bill McUtchen
    S. Geoff Bishop

Ian Kirby stood as Umpire for the day.

Friday 25.02.2023:
Mens Open Singles match between Lyall Brettell and Brian Cornish:
This game was worthy of being a final not just a round game!
Some amazing shots played by both players in difficult conditions, same gusting wind, stop for rain and heavy track I mentioned above!
A real test of how a player must adapt to the conditions in front of him.
Both top notch players gave the crowd of spectators an edge of the seat experience, a game we were happy to get damp to watch.
Brian hit the lead but Lyall really holding focus and pulling it all together in the final stages to take the win.

Thanks to Robbie Hannah who was the marker for the match and Ian Kirby who earned his money as Umpire!
(you know the drill, damp heavy green, kitty roll questionable, Ian to sort out!)
Saturday 25.02.2023:
Another round of the Wide Bay Classic played today on our home green.
Woodgate played Maryborough.
Some great games with some going right to the last end for a result that could have gone either way.
Special thanks to Geoff Bishop who was our Umpire for the day.

Sunday 26.02.2023:
Wow! Today was such an amazing day for lovers of a great bowls game, and especially a Ladies Singles Bowls game!
Two talented Ladies Daphne Brettell and Jacquie Rogerson played it out for the winners in this round of the Open Ladies Singles Competition.
This really should have been the final, it was such a great game!
Daphne went out to a solid lead only to see Jacquie, who is not one to give up, claw her way back by the seventh end, she held the lead right up until the nineteenth end when Daphne again took the lead.
I can tell you it was really hard for we social bowlers to keep our minds on our game while having one eye on the competition game, it was so tense!
Jacquie again took the lead and led right up until the twenty-eight end when the score sat at Jacquie 22 Daphne 21, how tense is that?
I thought both husbands were about to have a coronary!
Last end, most of the social bowlers just stopped in their tracks to watch, Daphne rolled a fabulous bowl to sit beside kitty, Jacquie rolled an equally great bowl, Daphne rolled another great bowl, and so it went on, all tight around the head with lots of measuring going on.
The result was a solid four by Daphne to take the match 25/22.
Have to say the applause across the green was an indication of what a great game it was.
Congratulations to both players!
Special thanks to Marjo Greiner as marker and Robyn Bishop as Umpire.
Was so excited by the competition game that I forgot to give you the results of the rink draws:
