a lower grade, making it more difficult
for smaller clubs like Newport to match
the oppositions firepower. Graham based
his comments on the fifth round of the
pennants, being the grading round for all
pennant players, a grade they will carry
until regraded sometime in the future.
Graham concluded by stating, "I would
like to convey, on behalf of Newport BC,
happy and successful bowling to all clubs
competing in the Zone and State finals."
JOHN McGrath and Peter Mason (Horns-
by BC) have been researching the his-
tory of their club, in particular the bowlers
who flew to various locations in NSW
for an enjoyable game of bowls. At the
end of World War 2, a group of bowlers
from the Hornsby BC conceived the idea
of giving a new dimension to the sport
of lawn bowls. After organising a day of
bowls at a selected country BC, they hired
an aeroplane (usually a DC3), and flew
to their destination. The concept had a
tremendous appeal and attracted bowlers
from other BCs in the area. A badge was
struck identifying the proud wearer as a
"Flying Bowler." Some of the memorabilia
relating to those days has been donated
to the RNSWBA for their archives.
THE 2010 Zone 9 junior championship
winners were: Singles Billy Johnston
(Seaforth BC); Pairs Billy Johnston (Sea-
forth BC), and Stephen King (Belrose BC);
Fours James Silk (Dee Why BC), Stephen
King (Belrose BC), Aaron Fawsett (Horns-
by BC) and Billy Johnston (Seaforth BC).
ADOMINANT feature about this year's
State pennants has been the increased
number of younger bowlers competing.
Their presence has been in all grades
and from information supplied to me, is
evident throughout many BCs in NSW.
Bowlers throughout Zone 9 have spo-
ken about the subject and have been
most impressed by the demeanor of the
younger bowlers on the greens, particu-
larly their respect for the etiquette and
rules of the sport.
ON 15 May, Zone 10 Pennant sec-
tional play was completed. Sides
who participated in the Round Robin
Grade 1: Merrylands, Toongabbie,
Northmead and Wenty Leagues. Grade
2: Dundas Sports, Merrylands, Toongabbie
and Brush Park. Grade 3: Gladesville, Mer-
rylands, Toongabbie and Wenty Leagues.
Grade 4: Merrylands, Wentworthville
Memorial, Gladesville and The Hills.
Grade 5: Dundas Sports, Ryde X Phoenix,
Northmead and Beecroft. Grade 6: North
Ryde RSL, Parramatta RSL, Rosehill and
Merrylands. Grade 7: Merrylands (1), Mer-
rylands (2), Northmead and Castle Hill.
IS THIS a record? Merrylands BC believes
this year's Pennant season has created a
record for them. The club entered seven
sides in the Zone 10 State Pennants, and
all seven qualified for the Round Robin
play-offs. Merrylands in continuing its
commitment to bowls development has
appointed Neil Burkett as new club coach.
The success of their juniors and Pennant
sides ensure Neil has quality and quantity
to work with. Congratulations from all
bowlers go to Club Merrylands on such
a fine achievement. Neil will also be
coaching at the Western Sydney Academy
of Sport, local schools, new bowlers and
running barefoot bowls events.
