Well one of the big days on the Malvern Bowling Club Calendar is almost upon us. Sunday 16th December is not only the wine tasting (and plenty of food) but the day for our Pairs and Singles club championships. As all members are aware we now run these games before December (unless extenuating circumstances prevent this) so that singles winners can enter the Sandbelt Champion of Champions if they desire and test their skills against the best in the Region.
That being the case we will be running these competitions based on Bowls Vic rules especially relating to heat if this is an issue.
It is fantastic to see some new bowlers competing for the main club titles this year. Anne Franceschini is competing in both singles and pairs which is a great effort. Suzanne Gibbs is back to defend her title from last year. We have Olga Nowatschenko and Anita D’Andrea testing their skills in the ladies pairs against Robyn Loh and Anne Franceschini.
In the men’s after witnessing one of the best and closest men’s pairs semi’s I have seen for a long time we have the upstarts, Garry Devlin and Ed (the comeback kid) Payne against the dream team of John Murdoch and Stuart Arnold-Levy who are keen to revenge their last bowl loss in last year’s final.
The men’s singles is a replay of last year’s final with John Murdoch back for an amazing third year in a row (having won the last 2 years) versus Stuart Arnold-Levy, close friends off the green but both with white line fever……
So to the matches and the timings:
10:00am Ladies Pairs – Anne Franceschini and Robyn Loh versus Olga Nowatschenko and Anita D’Andrea
10:30am Men’s Pairs – Garry Devlin and Ed Payne versus John Murdoch and Stuart Arnold-Levy
2:30pm Ladies Singles – Anne Franceschini versus Suzanne Gibbs
3:00pm Men’s Singles – John Murdoch versus Stuart Arnold-Levy
Don’t forget the wine tasting and purchase option, $10 a head. Please put your name down on the list so we can cater properly, there will be a lot of food as well.
I encourage all members to come down and watch some bowling during the day, have a drink and enjoy the company of the members.
