Ballina RSL Sandflies Bowls Club
All roads lead to Ballina RSL Bowling Club next Sunday the 29th Nov when the Ballina RSL Sandflies and Alsontville Mafia take on the Robina Rebels and Musgrave Hill Maulers in the State of Origin. This is always a keenly contest affair with no prisoners taken to win the coveted title.
Sunday 22nd of Nov saw 24 Sandlfies out on the excellent home greens. The winners for the day were Peter ‘backhand” Harley, Tim Taylor and Josh Greenhalgh 25 over Peter Connick, Warren “Boston” Thatcher and Luke “I’m only 53” Prsa 14. Runners up Roger Elkins, Allan “it was only squash” Britt and Bob Gibsson 22 going down in by the barest of margins to young Isaac Nelson, John Dennis and Alfredo “the Great” Garcia 23. Other results included Laurie “Rabbi” McCann, Bretty Fraser and Col “more chicken” Pittman 20 defeating Guy Kermode, Steve Mison and Neville “Nifty” Dunne 13. The other rink saw Big Joe Busuttil, Alby Waldron and Fred Weidesweller 20 won over Mick Thompson, Garry “Celubrious” Scott and Gary Simon 14.
The committee sprung another surprise BBQ for the players after the game which was greatly appreciated by the gathered throng. The long awaited return of secretary Pat “Mad Irish” Kearney is expected next week after being lost at sea for a month.
