Beecroft Fives in February – 3rd Friday Bowls
16 February. We had a lovely night for a change, not too hot and a nice breeze to cool the players down. There were 4 pairs of members plus 4 new players, including the local member for parliament who came down for a roll up and appeared to enjoy himself.
The winners on the night were Lyn Thornewell and Richard Morris, but it is not about whether you win, lose or draw, it is about having an enjoyable time with your friends, being able to socialise and have a few laughs.
So come along and join the fun (it is much cooler than a Wednesday or Saturday afternoon). The next one is on Friday, 16 March from 5:00 pm.

26 January. The club was jumping all day, first with a Liberal Party function in the morning then Australia Day social bowls in the afternoon.
From what I can see the Liberal Party function was not all work. BIAS captured our State member, Damien Tudehope, MP putting down a couple of pretty solid bowls. Do you think we can recruit him to play social with us every week?
The afternoon bowls of course was prefaced by a pretty fine feast – BBQ (thanks boys), home baked cake (thanks Alison). We had a novel game where all the players were given a handicap. Plenty of us whinged about our rating – a good Aussie tradition! In the end it was the team with the lowest handicap that won, despite everyone else having a galloping head start on them. So perhaps the ratings were fair dinkum after all!
We’ve add some photos to the gallery below – you can tell which ones – lots of gum leaves, flags and perhaps a local member bowling in his best suit! Oh yes – and that isn’t overarm bowling – it is the thong throwing competition!
Our 2018 bowls lifestyle has got off to a great start
19 January. Competitions are already underway with first round women’s singles and second round men’s fours being played tomorrow. A couple of matches will be played in the morning to get ahead of the heat.
Tonight was our first Beecroft Fives for 2018. We had a few ace players who found us on Facebook. They’d never touched a bowl before but already were in fine competitive form. Getting the tape out on your first game must mean something. Perhaps it is the Australian Open tennis getting us all fired up! Though these guys were families from the GHFA so a sporting edge is hardly a surprise! Do you think a warm up on the bowling green will improve the soccer skills?
