Ron Head

April 10, 2017
We would like to inform visitors to our site that our good friend Ron Head has called it a day after writing the One White, Blue North, Blue South preview and review columns along with the Player Personality profiles for this website over a nine year period

Ron was a talented writer for the popular Footy Goss website that featured W.A footballers over many years, his articles included player profiles and commentary on happenings on the local WAFL football scene. It was a lucky day for this site when our paths crossed in the local park in 2009, he was aware of our website and offered to write a column.

Our good man has been writing for the site ever since and what a magnificent job he has done over that time covering three divisions and writing over fifty Player Profiles.
Ron would go to the nth degree to keep his club contacts happy, nothing was ever too much trouble for him even if it was. His personality and kind nature is such he even helped those who never contributed.

Ron is a one in a million person and a marvellous friend. He is as reliable as the setting sun and we could not have been associated with a more loyal, conscientious and committed person.

Thank you Ron Head for your outstanding contribution in promoting the sport of Lawn Bowls and to this website.

Hi all.
As some people will know Pat has got Leukaemia..

He is starting his second round of chemo today. Everything is looking very positive.

Due to both him & Cliff Guelfi (President of OPBC) going through this cancer Pat has decided to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation "World's Greatest Shave".
Pat will be shaving both his head & Beard!!!
Any $$ you can give to help raise some funds would be greatly appreciated.
Any amount is appreciated it doesn't have to be the amount on website. $5 is fantastic

Just go to this.... donate.

The shave will be at Osborne Park Bowling Club on Friday 24th March between 5.30 & 7.00pm. Anyone is welcome to come and watch & support.
Cheers Joyce

A Meeting in regard to the proposed pennant changes for next season

March 14, 2017
It was an interesting discussion held on radio last Saturday morning between BowlsWA CEO Ken Pride and John Goddard in relation to the proposed pennant changes to be in place for next season.

A further development since the discussion, Club representives of all Clubs are invited to attend a meeting scheduled for Tuesday March 14th, 6:00 PM at the Osborne Park Bowling Club premises.

People who are concerned with these proposed changes are urged to canvas the President and committees of their Club as to their views on the proposed changes, also ask members of the BowlsWA Management Committee, the Match and fixtures panel and the BowlsWA board about the change.

John Goddard PH: 0438 921 842


Open Meeting regarding proposed pennant structure

March 14, 2017

Hello Sherro.
I Feel that the upcoming meeting on the 14th of March, should be an open meeting for all capitated players not just club reps.

There are so many people out there who are totally confused by what is going on. This includes club reps who often put a watered down version of what the members voice is on a lot of various subjects (including this one) at executive meetings.

With this, I feel all bowlers should be able to attend the meeting &vote on another drastic change to the pennant season, not just left to a few to decide for many.

Thanks Sherro.
Peter Aungier

Country week title winners

March 11, 2017
We were unable to bring Country Week results to our visitors. We did receive a minuscule list of results from one venue only, as the results were in isolation to the rest of the competition we did not publish them.

If we had received all results, we would have published them in a format that would have allowed visitors to view all results in one view rather than the BowlsWA site where a visitor has to click on each individual section to display a result. Like many others we didn't follow Country week this year.

These results were taken from this morning's newspaper

Kaleb Walding, a sixteen year old from Karratha, won the Country Week singles title when he defeated Dudley Park's Mark Simpson 21-19 to win the title.

Gnowangerup) Arthur Crabbe, Michael Johnson,Allan Shaddick, Greg Stewart 21

Another BPL series has been done and dusted until next November.
As usual It was the best players who were playing in the finals, Aron Sherriff, Ben Twist, Mark Casey, Brett Wilkie Shannon McIlroy and Jo Edwards, it was they who made it such a good spectacle for the viewers.
Hopefully, in future the best players in Australia will be selected to play in the BPL regardless of gender.

As always the first couple of days was slow going, the lack of spectators was a concern. Interest grew with the countdown to the finals which in turn saw the crowd increase significantly for the last day, thank goodness.

WA almost made it to the final, unfortuntely falling at the last hurdle. They made an impression in the 2½ TV games we saw. Pieter Harris played well, Kristina Krstic was good but not quite as good as last year and John Slavich acquitted himself well in his first appearance.
Though not quite a Mike Buffer, the world famous boxing ring announcer, Clive Adams did a great job introducing the players to the audience . Well done to Clive, you never know but you might have that job for as long as they want a person to introduce the players to the TV audience.

30 years to miss a game of pennants

January 26, 2017
Gary Caffell, a long time Osborne Park player has gone 32 seasons with out missing one game of Saturday pennants. That golden run came to an end recently. We asked him to name some of the many highlights in those past 30 years.


Practice before a pennant game

January 24, 2017
We are trying to gauge if bowlers would be happy if the 90 minute cut off time prior to the start of a penant game was changed to allow them to practice on the green they are to play on up until 10 minutes before start time.

As it is now W.A bowlers are not allowed to practice on the green they will play on 90 minutes before the start of a pennant game.
Is it time to revisit this rule and allow practice up until ten minutes before the start time and eliminate the two end practice roll up.

BPL comment

November 18, 2016
The Bowls Premier League was finalised last week, my comment would have been published earlier but we had some incorrect information.
We can be sure some visitors will disagree with my view but that is how I saw it sitting in my lounge chair from afar.


Three Letters

Welcome to our new sponsor Crediflex

November 13, 2016
Many thanks to Bill Brandsma, partner of Crediflex, a Company that is involved in Home Loan, Equipment Finance, Business solutions and Property Fianance for their support and sponsorship of the Osborne Park Bowling Club website.

Bill is one of the most liked and highly respected people in the world of Lawn Bowls and a keen supporter of the great game of Lawn Bowls. His involvement in our sport doesn't stop there, he is a very community minded person and puts a lot of time into coaching young footballers which includes some who are who on the edge of breaking into the AFL.

At one stage in his younger days back in around 1980 Bill was in the W.A State Cricket squad playing as leg spin bowler. Around that time he also played along side Dennis Lillee, Ian King, Bob Paulson and Pakistani great Mustaq Mohhommad for the Perth Cricket Club.

Bill transferred to Kalgoorlie with the ANZ bank in 1981, but after suffering a knee injury he seemed to disappear off the cricketing landscape. As a good-natured chap and fine cricketing craftsman, you'd go a long way to find one better.

Many thanks to John Terrell for this piece of information.

If any of our visitors are contemplating a loan please make Bill your first port of call.

Slow play a concern

October 26, 2016
The State fours finals were concluded last Sunday. It is time for BowlsWA to reconsider the need to have the Men's and Ladies finals start at the same time, it not neccessary and inconvenient not only to the participants, but to spectators as well.....

BowlsWA go it alone and sponsor the Australian Premier League series

BowlsWA will sponsor W.A's participation in the annual BPL (formerly known as the APL) Fox television program due to the lack of a primary sponsor.

Mandoon wins best wheat beer award

August 8, 2016
Congratulations to Allan Erceg and the Homestead Brewery after winning the Cryer Malt Trophy for best wheat draught named Kaisers Choice at the Perth Royal Show.
I must say it is one of the highlights for Sherro when I visit the Mandoon Homestead Brewery to sit down and enjoy a pint of Kaisers Choice Wheat Beer.
It is simply the best and little wonder the Homestead Brewery won the award.
If any of our visitors are intending to go to Mandoon Wine Estate and Home Brewery try Kaisers Choice, you are sure enjoy it as much as I have.
