Congratulations to Jeremy Henry the new Aus Indoor sets play Champ and his 2nd win in the event 11-2, 9-8, commiserations to Curtis Hanley who pushed two stars of the game to the limit.

August 25, 2016
Who shot the Sherriff ? Curtis Hanley did when he won this morning's game against Aron Sherriff 6-5, 9-9, he will play Jeremy "King" Henry.
It wasnt all that long ago when our own Lance Strahan played Henry in the Aus Indoor sets play final, Henry won that final with the very last bowl of the game drawing to the ditch with four feet between Strahan's bowl and the ditch.

Scores from BowlsAus


Some bad news for those who thought we would be receiving a live televised broadcast of the finals that was streamed thru the internet like we had last year, they will be disappointed to learn they will have to wait to see it on SBS over the next few weeks.

Surely if the camera's are going to be there, why not go live? Not much interest in watching any sporting event if you are aware of who won before a replay of the event..

What do our visitors think ?

Stirling Bowling Club incentive scheme

August 11, 2016
As the Stirling Bowling Club prepare for the new season starting in late October, they have announced to their members an excellent incentive scheme for the players in their Premier League side for the 2016-17 season.

They will reward the highest winning rink each Saturday with $400 to be shared equally for their endeavours

Individual players have been sponsored in the past, so I must commend the Club through their sponsor Mandoon Estate that they are giving the rank and file player an opportunity to a share of cash incentives for each pennant game.

The 2016-17 season will see the end of the traditional 18 game season. The following year the 2017-18 season will see all grades play a fourteen game plus finals pennant season.

Stirling who regained PL status for this coming season has timed the incentive scheme for the players just right in their attempt to remain in the PL.

Mt Lawley Consistency singles

August 10, 2016

Winner 48pts
Runner up 32pts
3rd/4th 16pts.

Also for those players still considering entering, Friday Sept 9th is filling very quickly only a few spots left. Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th plenty of space.

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
