Seaside Carnival 2019

Our wonderful, washed out 50th Seaside Carnival was a happy day full of quiz games, a roast raffle, the Grid, a magnificent lunch and the best looking Charity table yet! We presented our sponsor, Sydney Credit Union (SCU)’s Glen Warner, BDM, with a Certificate of Appreciation for their wonderful support for over thirty years. We also presented our charity, the Deaf and Blind Children, with a cheque to support their meaningful and caring work.

The rain was almost cyclonic and not a lawn bowl was to be seen, but the sound of laughter and happy chatter made the day a huge success! The friendships we have formed and the wonderful sense of belonging is such a vital part of our sport and we should all be thankful for one another! Thank you to all our friends from our District clubs and beyond who battled the weather to join in!

Grade 1 Pennants Game 3

2nd April 2019

On the gorgeous Double Bay Bowling Club greens where the world disappears and you feel enveloped in a glorious jungle, the third match of the Grade 1 Pennants teams took place after two cancellations due to rain. Previously we had lost the first match and then lost second match by only one point. Today we drew! What an epic battle it was! With several die hard supporters from Clovelly to goad us on, we ignored the intermittent rain and did our best but just couldn’t outdo our worthy opponents who have dominated the Grade 1 ranks for quite a while.

Well done Double Bay! We wanted to beat you but will always love you!

2019 Major Singles Winner!

Our new club champ is Carmel Sowden who played Barbara Buhagiar in her first Singles final (without a doubt a future champion!) in an extremely tight match on Sunday 24th March in very hot conditions. The game, which included one Dead End, was a constant battle for the front and just when it looked like Barbara may have the advantage Carmel’s focus, determination and persistence earned her the win. Well done to Carmel who has scored her second Championship in 3 years and we wish her luck as she heads to the Champion of Champion competition once again! The game was expertly marked by our wonderful Sandra Starrett who did a fantastic job as always! The final score was 18-25. Congratulations to both the winner and the runner up – it was a marvelous spectacle!
