AN application to the State Match Com-
mittee that has permitted restructuring
of pennant players this year, and rejuve-
nated Alstonville's players this season.
Alstonville was having trouble fielding
players last year, as some No. 4 players
were unable to participate each week
because of a restrictive State rule that
wouldn't allow them to play in No. 6's.
The rule stated smaller clubs that didn't
have consecutive grades could drop a
player only one lower grade. The relax-
ing of the rules has meant Alstonville
fielded four sides in this year's pennant
comp, and won three flags - No. 2, No.
6 and No. 7. Garry Ensbey, the club Sec-
retary Chairman, reported "older players
returned to the game and, with new
members, were able to participate in pen-
nants, making the club more competitive".
YOUNG Luke Jones (Evans Head) at
only 13 has just won the club minor
singles, and on the same day backed up
in the afternoon and won the second
round of the club pairs. Luke, with Alex
Colligan, will represent the Zone Juniors
in the State Junior Pairs Championships at
Warilla later this year.
AT Burringbar BC in the Tweed Byron
DBA, Ray Chapman and Simon Bell
are winners of the District Reserve Pairs.
Ted Allard, Ray Chapman, Rex Howard
and Eddie Roberts are the Club Fours
championship winners, with Graeme
Davis, James and Jim Boyle and Terry
Lee runners up. Steve Wade is the Club
Singles Championship winner in a terrific
game with Steve Robson 31-29.
THE Match Committee checking the
pennant results for Bangalow Grade 7
was rather amused by the score against
Mullumbimby, which read Bangalow 26.75
and Mullumbimby 78. After checking
with the team manager, Gerry Swain,
he advised that they were unable to
field two leads. With the side being two
players short, the seconds and thirds, in
the teams affected, played 3 bowls each
and one fourth of the total shots scored
by each defaulting team was deducted
from their score after the game had
finished. (See Law 46.2.2) "46.2: In a
side game 2 -- If, within 30 minutes after
the scheduled start time for a game, one
player is absent from one or more teams
in a side, the game should continue but:
• the number of bowls played by each
defaulting team should be made up by
the lead and second, both playing three
bowls; and • one fourth of the total shots
scored (including decimal places) by each
defaulting team should be deducted from
their score after the game has finished."
AT Mullumbimby, results for the Fours
and Triples championships are: Fours
-- D. Hammond, S. Dettman, R. Philps,
P. McDonald 21 d G. Porter, G. Naoum,
M.Esau, M. Thorne 17. Triples -- P. Gower,
H. McKenna, C. McClymont 23 d P.
McDonald, R. Philps, D. Hammond 21.

THE Grafton club's committee wishes
to thank all players and managers
for this year's pennant effort. The match
committee led by Doug Andrews have
done a great job. It's hard work to select
more than 60 players to the right grades.
For a long time teams have been picked
from year to year without any thought
toward replacing a player or players who,
due to age/health or form, are not up to
standard of that grade. The club has some
great talent, and with the right blend of
old, and with the emergence of some new
talent to put pressure on all positions, we
have a great future.
SOUTH Grafton Ex-Services Club reports
a very successful 50th anniversary cel-
ebration. It was a most enjoyable event.
Thank you to all who contributed to this
memorable occasion. Someone asked,
'What sort of dress do we wear to the
50th anniversary celebration?' Some
smart alec said 'Wear your wife's finest'.
THE Red Rock club's president took a
group to South Grafton Services Club
to help celebrate their 50th year, and was
most impressed by their fellowship and
hospitality. Congratulations to all on a
great achievement and hope to see you
still going strong for a long time to come.
This year's Pennant season is over and
Red Rock found no joy in its last game
against Yamba, missing out all around the
paddock. Hopefully, next year players will
be graded so the club can be competitive.
A big thank you to Jan Murray for being
team manager, Dee Murphy for being the
at-home umpire, the selectors and the
women bowlers for catering.
THE final of the Maclean and District
C grade singles was won by Ryan
Sheather, assistant greenkeeper. Ryan
defeated Mark Hope 31-25. The John
Kelly Memorial Triples was played under
sunny skies with three games of 15 ends
of bowls. The winner was Alex Holland
(Iluka) with Bill Cox and Bob McMahon
(both Yamba); runner-up was Frank
Vogel's team (Yamba).
WHAT a week for Brooms Head! First
the women got through to the grand
final in the District Triples. Then the club
hosted the District Compass Shield, and
what a great day it was! The rain the
night before did nothing to halt the day.
By 8.30, and a little wind, the players
were out on the green. The rain held out
to the last hour. It was good to see so
many of the four Districts' top players
all in one place. It made for some very
interesting games. The winner of the 2010
District Compass Shield was Northern
Rivers East, second Tweed Byron, third
Clarence River and fourth Northern Rivers
West. Brooms Head would like to thank
Ron Woodward for all his help in making
the day the success that it was. This was
the first time the Shield was given to a
smaller club, and Brooms Head handled
the day very nicely, showing all that the
club may be small, but can handle the
THE Clarence River DBA 2010 District
