Adelaide Master Singles winner

April 22, 2014
Sorry we are a tad late with this report but now all up on on site

The Adelaide Master Singles has been won and done for 2014
Thanks to Stan Meale for this report .


April 21, 2014

A nice compliment for Clive Adams after his win against Stan Meale in the 1/4 final



Clive Adams was defeated in the semi-final this morning by Craig Mills 25-17. A great effort from Clive to have made it to the semi-final and also good to see the high regard that bowlers around Australia have for him

Unfortunately for Clive it was a case of dejavu because it was Craig Mills who put Clive out in the Adelaide Masters two years ago. Best of luck to Craig in the final

April 20, 2014

The Adams show rolls on with another withering display in the Adelaide Master singles when he defeated our man in Adelaide Stan "The Man" Meale in a last eight showdown.

It was all one way traffic with the final score 25-5 which says a lot about the form of Clive Adams with three big wins today and a semi-final place tomorrow morning

Lets not forget our man Stan who has done very well making the last eight and in putting himself in a good position to play in the semi-finals but it was not to be for him this year

All the best Clive Adams

April 20, 2014
Clive Adams on a roll and wins his second round game defeating Bernie Ward 25-8 taking him into the last 8
Clive is in redhot form and drawing like a mustard plaster on around a 15/16 seconds green

There is one remaining hurdle to jump today, win that and into the semi's tomorrow. Lets go Clive Adams

April 20, 2014

Clive Adams wins first game this morning after defeating NSW Bowler Jay North 25-13, and moves into the last 16.
Word from Stan Meale who is at the venue and still participating, is Adams, who had an extremely difficult section is still is running hot and remains a strong fancy from here
This event is another that the Legendary Geoff Oakley won in 1977

April 20, 2014

Thanks to Stan Meale we have the results the second day
Clive Adams won his section winning all three games and now into the last 16

April 8, 2014
Congratulation are in order to Matt Ayres and Kristina Krstic, they have been selected in the Australia A squad.

Unfortunately Clive Adams has been omitted, he has been a terrific selection. Also omitted were Kelli Rogalski and Rechelle Cole, both of these young Ladies have a bright future ahead of them and don't be surprised to see them re-included sometime down the track

While we are at it well done also to Matt and Kristina for winning the awards as best players in the recent Sides series held in Tasmania. We were not aware as many of us weren't they has done so, till this morning

State Triples

April 8, 2014

State Triples results


Well said

April 8, 2014
Recently, I had the mis-fortune to run in to some KWBUs at the state triples, (pronounced Kwa-boo(s)"Kids who belted us"

One of the KWBUs I know a little of is Wesley Nielson, who is member of the Wanneroo Bowls Club, and who I know to be a great young man, the other KWBus were Dan who I have met only once, and David Downey who I met for the first time on Saturday.

I apologize for my mostly good natured dig at these young men, as they are not kids, but I do harbor some resentment for the beating.

My point in writing this letter, is not to relive the horror of the 25 to 8 belting that I was part of from these young men, and I felt very lucky that we got eight or any shots in fact, I think they must have gotten tired of whipping us; but to highlight something that I have only really had dawn on me, tonight.

These young men, were in addition to being better bowlers than us, polite, friendly, considerate, and genuinely easy to relate to. They were very gracious winners, and I think of many times now, when I have had beltings, or even relatively minor losses to much older bowlers, who have been I felt less than 'good winners'.

In any event, what these young men, who are great bowlers, destined for even greater things; have shown me, is not so much how to bowl (I can accept I started too late, and I am exploring online gaming instead of bowls), but; that you don't have to be a tosser or collapse under your own bowling genius when you outclass other bowlers.

I think given the conduct and obvious attitude and language of some much older men at the venue I was at, there is much including bowls, which these young gentlemen could teach many in the bowling community.

Thanks for the game, Wes, Dan, and David, and well done in the triples, you'll get it next year.

Congratulations to the young lads who reached the semi - finals of the State Triples.

Its the juniors who are the future of our sport and that is where the bulk of the efforts of those promoting the sport should lie if they wish to see a future competitive State Side.

How to acheive this? Well that's the million dollar question.

I do believe however, the expertise and know how is out there - It just needs coordinating.

Great news for Tasmanian Seniors

March 27, 2014

Over 60's Senior Sides Championship

The board of bowls Tasmania are pleased to announce that the men's and ladies Australian senior sides championships (over 60's) have been added to our representative responsibilities and we will be making a significant contribution towards the costs of player involvement at this year's senior Australian sides championships on the Gold Coast.

A bouquet for Wanneroo

March 12, 2014

Just thought I had to comment about how nice the greens at Wanneroo were on Sunday.

Being an ex-greenkeeper I know how much work and time needs to be put in to have a quality surface.

You only here about the bad greens in the bowls circle so when some one is doing a good job it needs to be reported. I don't know the chaps name but well done mate.

I hope WANNEROO appreciate this mans efforts and pay him large sums of money to keep his services.

All the best Danny Penman

David Rankin, winner of the Alan Eddy/ Rod Wishart medal in the 2013 Sides series has replaced Rhett Butler to represent WA in the up coming Sides series to be held in Tasmania

Appeal dismissed

March 7, 2014
It has been common knowledge Victoria Park player Rhett Butler was given a suspended sentence by his own Club due to an incident in the Premier League game between Sth Perth and Victoria Park on the 1st of February

Subsequently because of his conduct, he was omitted by the State selectors from the State side to represent WA in the Sides series to be held in Tasmania at the end of this month

An appeal was lodged against the decision which was heard today. The appeal was dismissed and a replacement will be announced in the not too distant future.

Coaching Clinics with Colin Johnson

January 7, 2014
The 7th in a series of coaching clinics is now available

Many thanks to Colin Johnson who will do a series of coaching clinics for bowlers.
I am certain those who are just starting out will benefit from Colin's vast coaching experience, as most of us are aware, we sometimes slip into bad habits and wonder how it has occurred, perhaps a read of his articles might solve a problem for even the most experienced of players

Congratulations to Wings Evans and Kay Blackwell for their outstanding efforts in the National Senior Sides series.
The Medals still remain nameless, why it is so, we do not know


Sherro had no cover of the State Fours

April 23, 2014 -->
We received quite a few enquiries as to why the State Fours did not receive any press on this site other than the preview of the event

Sherro has been covering Lawn Bowls for ten years on the world wide web, Last week we didn't do anything in that regard for the first time ever.
I am disappointed that we had to take the path we did, the reasons are in this article.

Technically speaking

BowlsWA Award night

September 4, 2013
BowlsWA awards evening is one of the highlights of the year on the bowling calendar, it is an extremely well run and attended event where we see recognition and acknowledgement given to those who achieved in the Sport.
It has been 7 years since the inception of the Senior Bowlingscene, to date medals or awards in this area remain nameless, not sure or understand the reasoning for leaving them nameless for such a long period of time ......

Terrific card trick

Great support for our major sponsor
Mandoon Estate

August 27, 2013
Just a quick one about one of your sites sponsor's, Mandoon Estate.

Recently we at Wanneroo piled 20 odd people onto a bus and did a trip to the Swan Valley. We visited a couple of wineries but we particularly wanted to visit Mandoon because of the association with bowls and sponsorship.

We were not disappointed. After receiving a very informative briefing about the estate and the work that is going into saving some of the oldest vines in the area we were treated to a terrific tasting session of some real quality wines.

Into the future they are planning restaurant facilities and entertainment which will make this an outstanding facility. A great spot with good wines that is easy to recommend.

Well done Mandoon and many thanks. We'll definitely be back but we have a few bottles to get through first.

Another good news story for
John McGrath at Bob Jane T-Marts

July 26, 2013
Hey Sherro,

About 4 weeks ago I had the wheels stolen off my car. It was a horrible situation and the insurance company was terrible!!
I went to John McGrath after seeing the review that was put up.

From the start, he went out of his way to help and his team were great. He organised a lend set of tyres until the insurance claim got sorted and came out to my house to fit them.
Everything was then sorted with the insurance company in which John and his team had to deal with the fun as well, which he handled perfectly.

I would like to thank John and his team, and would highly recommend that if anyone needs assistance with purchasing tyres or wheels, that they contact John McGrath at Bob Jane T-MART in Midland cheers,

Two sides in Premier League
