BC, Warilla BC, Birrong BC, St
Johns Park BC, Taren Point BC,

Throughout the year they have
given up their time and resources
to host various State finals and
I thank State President Ian McK-
night, Immediate Past President
John Archer, the Executive and
Board for their support throughout
2009. The guidance and advice
that they have provided has been
invaluable in my role as CEO.
I also welcome the new mem-
bers of the Board and Executive,
in particular new Treasurer Ron
King, who has stepped into the
role after a long and distinguished
term by Ken Guy. I look forward
to working with the new Board
to take the sport forward.
The Permanent committees of
the Association are also to be
thanked and congratulated on
their work and achievements. We
cannot thank you enough for the
time and skills that you volunteer
to ensure that our sport keeps
I would like to personally thank
the staff of the Association for
their dedication and commitment
throughout the year. Coming to
work each day is a pleasure when
you are surrounded by friends.
Our administration staff -- Court-
ney Allouche, Tracy Bannister, San-
tosh Gupta and Jade Gale -- have
been outstanding as they under-
take the huge task of providing
services to our 60,000 members
and 600 clubs.
Our Sports Development Team

Lynn, Chris Macauley and Mark
Whiteman -- continue to be the
engine room of ideas and innova-

Our magazine staff -- Rex Dav-
ies, Beverly Trippas and Louise
Robertson -- continue to produce
an informative magazine, which
provides an effective and impor-
tant communication tool for our
members, and we are proud that
the Bowls NSW magazine is listed
among the top 50 magazines cir-
culated across the country.
Our Executive Secretary, Jennifer
Hirama, has not only kept myself,
the executive and board in check
throughout the year, but has
worked tirelessly in the organisa-
tion of tonight's presentation din-
ner, for which I am truly grateful.
The experience and professionalism
that she has brought to the role
of Executive Secretary is recognised
and appreciated by all.
Finally, like the State President,
I would like to publicly thank my
beautiful wife Amy for her sup-
port and putting up with me in
With our first child Rylee born
earlier this year, Amy has been
nothing short of awesome in her
new role as mother, and while she
thinks that at times she is a single
mother and that I am married to
my work, I do appreciate every-
thing that she does for me, and
know that we will support each
other for many years to come.

The thought of national televi-
sion coverage did not seem to faze
either side as they went shot for
shot early in the match.
Garvey's rink led against Casey
11-3, which was negated by Tur-
ley's 10-4 lead over Warren, and
Jacobsen's 9-7 lead over Ferguson.
At the midpoint of the match
with scores locked at 25-all, the
Cougars fought their way to an
8 shot lead with Ferguson's rink,
who had been looking down the
barrel at 9-0 after 3 ends, rally-
ing to win 10 of the following 11
ends to bounce back to an 18-10
lead after 14 ends, while Garvey's
rink extended their lead to 16-5.
Turley's rink kept the Power in
the game leading 18-6.
The vocal supporters from the
rival clubs were almost drowned
out by the roar of the players
whenever a crucial conversion shot
(Continued from page 11)
was played, with high-fives and
mid-rink 'bear-hugs' a-plenty from
both sides as the game approached
the 'championship ends'.
With many in the crowd antici-
pating a 'Power' come back in
the final ends, the Cougars held
strong to maintain their lead for
their first ever Premier League title.
Brendon Edwards, who played
third for Shane Garvey, was named
the Bowlsbet Player of the Final
and was instrumental in the 25-6
win over Mark Casey's rink.
