Congratulations to Gosnells on their Grand final win over Kalamunda to win the One Blue pennant

Doubleview V Manning start 12 . 30 PM

Wanneroo V Cockburn

Kalamunda V Gosnells

It was really nice to see how players can become so attached to their club.

Last season Australia's most travelled pennant player Chris Holt did the return trip from Kalgoorlie each weekend to play for the Manning Eagles, he was a most important player for the club and won the Club Singles championship as well.
........................................................Chris Holt

The tyrany of distance was too much and so it was that he played in Kalgoorlie this year.

It was a pleasant surprise to see him at Doubleview after having flown down from Kalgoorlie to support the Manning Eagles. He will fly back after the GF.

Hows that for supporting your teammates !!

Mandoon Magic

March 25, 2015
President Cliff Guelfi family and friends visited the Mandoon Estate Winery and restaurant over the past weekend.

The one of the finest wines I have had the pleasure to drink and the food was superb was how Cliff, described the experience on his first visit.

Cliff fully recommends to bowlers who have as yet not visited the Estate, to pay a visit and sample the superb food and Wines, you will not be disappointed.

Sherro has been to Mandoon on four occasions now, and each time settled in at the Homestead Brewery and have had Goldband Snapper and chips with a pint of Kaisers Choice Wheat beer.

If the good lord made anything better than this, then he has kept for himself.

Charlie McNeil on the mend

March 19, 2015
We have been informed that Victoria Park player Charlie McNeil, one of the very nicest people playing our great game has suffered a stroke.

We are delighted to report that the doctors are very happy with the outcome after providing treatment that has seen Charlie regain his mobility..

He is still in recovery mode, and wont be able to have visitors or communications for at least a week or so

Charlie, who has been a highly respected member of Vic Park, is very disappointed that having this stroke has stopped him from playing his last ever game for the Reds against Sth Perth on Saturday.

Wrong bias humour

March 5, 2015
The Melville Bowling Club is hosting country week including finals for the first time in years.

It has been very successful with some first class bowls being played.

After the days play President Garry Mac commiserated with Joe Clifford who had his Ute broken into.

Quick thinking Joe spotted the culprit speeding away, and having his bowl in hand, took a shot at the car.

Unfortunately, some said, he had it on the wrong bias again and missed his target .

A bouquet for Fremantle

March 5, 2015
Sherro ...its not often I do this. but a comment had to be made.

My partner and myself drew Fremantle in the country week pairs. what a revelation!

The greens were amazing, the food was wonderful, the people couldn't do enough for you.

They are so proud of the club at which they play. Sherro its been a long time since I've played on greens as good as they are at Fremantle.

The people who prepared the food .......take a bow.

The hospitality was greatly appreciated ....and I thank you for all the bowlers that were there .

takes up the slack

January 28, 2015
Wanneroo Bowling Club would like the bowling fraternity to know that an Easter Carnival will still be run this year.

The guys are busily planning what they hope will be an event to remember with our great grass, good food, cold beer, warm friendship, good prizes and terrific competition.

Novelties will include a Calcutta after day 1, raffles, money bats, music, full esky's at the greens and maybe even an appearance from the Pure Blonde girls.

The guys are super intent on accentuating the "carnival" aspect of the event.

For full details people can check the tournament list on your site.

There is only one stipulation and that is, if you are not up for having a great time please don't enter.

If some of our country friends are keen to play and need some help with accommodation give us a call and we'll see what we can come up with to help out.

Mandoon Estate raises the bar

January 5, 2015
We are very proud that we have Mandoon Wines Estate as a major sponsor of this website. It was my first trip to the Estate on Saturday since their new building was completed.

I would urge visitors to our website to pay a visit to this outstanding venue; you will be most surprised just as I was.
At mid-day last Saturday Between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm I would estimate there were around 300 people at the Estate and goodness know's how many more would have came after that.

It is very much a family orientated establishment where the Kids can play and the family can relax on the lawns and you can try out the fabulous wines or beers.

The Homestead Brewery ales, are something you can't afford to miss where you can buy and try five different brands of their ales all on one tray for $14, that is amazingly cheap
We have created a walk thru slideshow to help give people who are contemplating a visit an idea of what some of the Estate looks like.

When you have some spare time I urge you to visit the most modern Winery in Australia, you will be impressed

Go to Mt Everest

August 8, 2014
Ever wondered what it looks like at the top of Mt Everest?

They say watching this video is almost like being there (well, not quite - but it gives you an idea of the climb). At the top you can view the 360 degree view from the summit (move the mouse around)

After watching this video I have decided to put my ambitions to climb the mountain on hold and stay home and play bowls with the Clydesdale

Many thanks to John for sending in this video

Thankyou Eddy for this outstanding video

Seventeen year old Joe Bush got a high school assignment to make a video reproduction. He chose history as a theme and tucked it all into two minutes.

Coaching Clinics with Colin Jonson

May 7, 2014
The 8th 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

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 ......

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
