at Guildford BC on 14 March. The round
robin with 16 juniors from each zone was
keenly contested and provided a colourful
spectacle for a large group of spectators.
Throughout the day a very high standard
of bowls was played. In their first game,
Zone 10 met Zone 16 (current holders of
the Trophy), each Zone winning 2 rinks,
but Zone 10 took the points 67-61. In the
second game Zone 10 met Zone 12, again
2 rinks won by each Zone, but we lost the
points 53-61. In our third game against
Zone 13 we won 73-49. Three Zones
finished equal on 4 points, but Zone 16
won on 4 rinks in their last game. Zone 16
were again winners, Zone 10 runner-up.
Congratulations to all players.
WENTY Leagues Major Singles saw
Steve Morris attempting to win his
3rd Singles final at the club. His oppo-
nent on the day was Shaun Nelson, and
although Steve led early, Shaun pegged
away and eventually won 31-23 in a first
class game of draw bowls.

JACK Kampel (Double Bay BC) has
made it back-to-back singles cham-
pionships with a comfortable 31-15
win over John Wineberg.
Kampel beat Pepe Glick in last year's
decider, and Wineberg was unable to
match the Double Bay champ and accom-
plished singles player. Jack was formerly
a member of Rose Bay BC before the
amalgamation with Double Bay BC, and
won their singles championship on five
occasions in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997 and
1998, and was twice runner-up to Gerald
Weinberg in 1996 and 1999. He has also
won two Zone singles championships in
1997 and 2003.
THE strong Greenlees Park BC fours
combination of Mark Golby, Guy Man-
dato, Tony Mandato and Tony Monda
have again picked up the coveted Green-
lees Fours title, having won 3 of the last
4 years. This year they accounted for John
Houteas, Colin Dawson, John Sneddon
and Eddie Truesdale 29-12. Mark Golby
has attributed his continued success on
the green to his understanding wife and
extensive bucket hat collection.
BY the time this issue is out to the
members, we will be well into our
Pennants. I would like to advise all the
clubs in the Zone that each Grade winner
will be making their own arrangements
for accommodation and travel to the
State Pennant playoffs. In the past, the
Zone has tried to organize only to find
clubs have taken it upon themselves. Any
queries, contact the Zone.
EASTLAKES Sports BC played their club
fours final, with Dejan Kaposvarac,
Gary Johnson, Tony Hughes and Matthew
Cross defeating Ray Wilson, Lee Symons,
Brian Duggan and John Benwell 18-7.
Maroubra RSL BC has also wrapped up
their fours early with Kevin Taylor, Lionel
O'Halloran, Ray Johnston and Stan Day-
ment beating Ian Frost, Steve Wilson,
Laurence Haynes and Peter Manning
24-20. Marrickville BC, who have returned
to Zone 11 this year, have completed their
club fours with Stuart Kennedy, Steve
Johnston, Chris Jackson and Bowls Secre-
tary Phil Vernon winning 33-8 over James
Davidson, Lee Hill, Gus Siares and Scott
Foster. Bronte BC fours champs for 2010
are Ken Crarer, Jeff Wirth, Dave Carder
and captain James Cook, who defeated
Glen Bray, Brad Ryan, Michael Byrne and
Paul Curtis 22-16.
FORMER Double Bay BC bowler Werner
Kos has shown he made the move to
new club Coogee BC, as he claimed the
club's singles championship with a 31-18
win over Bruce Nottage. Werner has been
a multi member at Coogee for many sea-
sons and obviously feels right at home at
the Eastern Suburbs club.
CONCORD RSL BC has secured a grant
through the NSW government for erec-
tion of shades along one side of the No.2
green. Drummoyne MP Angela D'Amore
assisted the club with the grant, and
bowlers will appreciate the extra shade
provided after installation. Shade wasn't a
problem for Max Briganti who won Con-
cord RSL BC minor singles championship,
defeating Mario Gentile 31-15.
