Respected race-caller and former Malvern Bowling Club member, Clem Dimsey, passed away on 11 September. Clem came to Malvern at my invitation to play in our night pennant team in 2004, an invitation he gladly accepted even though he was living in Dixon’s Creek a fair hike down...

Annual Div. 4 -v- Div. 6 Challenge

On Saturday our annual post-pennant season Div. 4 -v- Div.6 game saw a most interesting match in which each division won two rinks. Some late withdrawals resulted in the Div. 4 side being reduced to four triples, pitted against two triples and two fours for Div 6. Challenges,...

Every shot counts!

This mantra was evident with Tuesday’s .25 of a shot win for Neil Martin and his team against Chadstone. Playing as a triple with Shinei and Nick Zorbas, against a four, led to the gross result of 19/14 being adjusted to 14.25/14 after the reduction of our score by the...

Eiko and Olive have taken out this year’s pairs championship 22-14 with a gritty display of excellent draw bowling against Andy and Suzanne who was backing up after a lengthy battle with Helen in the morning. The match resembled the pattern of the morning’s singles...

Helen takes the singles title

In a classic tightly fought singles final which contained more conversions than a Jimmy Swaggart TV series Helen has lifted her third MBC singles title. In what might be described as a game of three halves Helen raced away to a 9-1 lead after seven ends.  Suzanne, maintaining her...
