the wind gusty but bearable. The format
was 3 games of 15 ends with 1 roll up

WHAT a wonderful talented group
of bowlers we have in the Zone
playing our great game!
Now our latest competition has
unearthed another champion with Ron
Dyball winning the Zone 12 Rookie Sin-
gles. Ron (Ingleburn) and David Stephen-
son (Cabramatta) played out a superb
final. Ron got off to a good start and
with lots of top bowls. The game moved
to a point with Ron leading 12-7. Not to
be outdone, David lifted and surged past
Ron to lead 16-12. Now it was Ron's turn
to lift and lift he did to level up 16-16 with
one end to play. With great skill Ron drew
shot for the game, and the title.
THE Zone 12 AGM has been held with
the committee returned to continue
their great work. Our finances will con-
tinue in the hands of Harry Childs. Our
Publicity Officer Brian Watson stood down
after a period of excellent service.
THE Picnic Point BC has congratulated
Grieg Thomas on his recent feats. A
local school teacher, Grieg won the 2009
Minor and Major singles championships.

several times with Steve running out a
AUBURN RSL BC has completed its Club
Championships with the final of Major
Singles played early in August. Allan Fur-

AT ST JOHNS Park, Kane Webster,
who turned 17 in August, has won
the Minor Singles. With a field of 32,
Kane had his work cut out, but he slowly
and surely whittled them down until
he played Terry Sartoretto, whom he
defeated 31 - 24 in the final on Sunday
23 August. There were a few generations
of the Webster's present, with his mum
and dad and grandfather on hand to see
him claim the final. His father Neil also
per game and no dead ends (jack respot-
ted on the 2m mark). The tournament
had a pool of $3,000 in prizemoney on
offer. As the day wore on the sky cleared
to brilliant sunshine, but unfortunately
the wind got stronger and the greens
faster the further into the day. Putting
the minor discomforts aside, there were
some extremely high quality bowls played,
particularly by the winners John Sneddon
and John Stewart (Greenlees) with 3 wins
+ 54, then followed the strong combina-
tion of Dave Raper and Steve McGuiness
with 3 wins + 35. Third was another
strong combination of Anthony Felton
and Brendan Edwards with 3 wins + 30.
Meanwhile, Greenlees Park BC held its
initial Keith Free Triples. Keith Free was a
long-time member of Greenlees Park and
strong supporter of the club.This was the
final leg of the Rydalmere Cup Qualifying
on Thursday 3 September. With brilliant
sunshine, superb greens and a format of 4
games of 12 ends of 2 bowl triples, every
one had a great day, with some very
good bowls played by a strong field. The
final wash up saw the winners being V.
Morgan B. Birch, G. Hughes (composite)
3 wins + 23; 2nd Thorne, D. Aitken, S.
Bateup (composite) 3 wins + 6; 3rd S.
Forster, T. Delmar R. Pearse (Alexandria-
Erskineville) 3 wins + 30. Hopefully next
year we will see a much stronger roll up.
