Wedding video

November 26, 2015
It is really good to see one of the famous Ball family Terry Ball, returning to bowls after a break from the game, Once a topliner and he can still go with the best of them and will resume his long and fruitful career this week playing with the Kardy Kats in their One Blue side.

How strange that upon his return to the bowling scene that we would receive a wedding video, the sender's caption stating " Terry Ball's wedding Pics " Oh boy was this a great wedding video, but is it really him?

It was reported on this site yesterday that Marko Kranjancic had played his last game for Cockburn. Also that he would never return to the Club, this part is not neccessarily correct, Marko has not been suspended by the Club, he can play in all events if he choses to do so.
What is true, is It would appear that he will not play pennants for Cockburn anytime soon or in the future.

Leeming Ladies PL team

November 11, 2015
The Leeming Ladies Premier League 16 this season were tipped to finish dead last. Well that prediction was well off the pace.
After three games they have defeated Manning who have 13 Ladies in the State squad, Osborne Park who have two lady selectors, HHmm that is a good time to play at your best. They followed up on those two wins by defeating the other powerhouse of the competion Mosman Pk

Our jokes man Eddy

October 7, 2015
Many thanks to Eddy
Ever wonder how they found the Boston bombers in just a few days? This may help you to understand what the government is looking at. The photo you see on the link below was taken in Canada and shows about 700,000 people.

Hard to disappear in a crowd. Pick on a small part of the crowd click a couple of times -- wait -- click a few more times and see how clear each individual face will become each time. Or use the wheel on your mouse.

This picture was taken with a 70,000 x 30,000 pixel camera (2100 Mega Pixels.) These cameras are not sold to the public and are being installed in strategic locations. The camera can identify a face among a multitude of people.

Place your computer's cursor in the mass of people and double-click a couple times. Scary sharp!! Not so easy to hide in a crowd anymore


Why are WA starting the pennant season so late?

October 6, 2015
Have West Australian pennant players noticed that other Australian States are starting their pennant season and game starting times a lot earlier that we are. Our weather is better than theirs, they start the pennant games earlier and don't forget they have daylight saving
It is time for some forward thinking by the board to bring about change.

What do bowlers think? read the facts and vote.

Sorrento Master Singles in danger

October 3, 2015
The Sorrento Masters Singles is being held again this year, however, the life of this event will be entirely in the hands of the players that qualify.

I have had good support from a small and loyal band of players, but over the last few years numbers have been dwindling, with result that we may have to consider abandoning the event altogether.

There is a lot of time and effort that goes into the planning and running of this event, as well as good sponsorship funds, and unless these costs can be justified with good fields, cancelling the event is a very real option.

I therefore urge all players that qualify to enter as soon as possible, to make sure that not only does the event occur this year, but is supported sufficiently to carry on next year.

Prize money is still good, and entry fee is still the same at $30 per head, as it has been for some years. I therefore urge all interested players to enter as soon as possible.

Entry form

Regards - Ian Wittber - Tournament Director
