Jim Gupanis

December 3, 2016
I thought I would advise that yesterday afternoon as I was standing on the rink at Morley a faint voice called out "Go Cambridge". I turned to see who the loyal fan was and in fact did not instantly recognise this slight grey haired gentleman until he said how are you Ted and then I recognised the voice. It was Jim Gupanis.

It seems he had a very bad fall at home and from what I could understand fell on his head and may have suffered some serious damage, in any event he was much diminished from his formal jovial self but he assured me he was on the mend and hoped to get back into the game next season.

All the best

Ted Leahy

Many Thanks Ted for alerting our vistors, we sure do wish Jim who was one of the finest players playing the game in his heyday, and remarkably still playing a fine leaders game for PL side Stirling in his 80th year
All the best Gippo, we hope you have a speedy recovery

Mandoon Estate

November 22, 2016

Recently we welcomed some overseas visitors to WA and took them to Mandoon Estate in the Swan Valley. This place must surely rank as one of the best wineries in Australia. Our visitors questioned why so many people travelled three hours south to Margaret River when they had a brilliant place like Mandoon on the doorstep of the city.

Of greater interest to me is the history of Mandoon. Mandoon was first named after an expedition by Captain James Stirling in 1827. The first vineyards at Mandoon were established in 1840 by John Septimus Roe, the Swan River Colony's Surveyor General, making Mandoon home to the oldest vineyards in WA.

Roe, after whom Roe Highway was named, was a very influential person in WA's colonial past. Roe had first pick of all the best land in our fledgling State. His heretiage-listed residence near the corner of Adelaide Terrace and Victoria Avenue is a perfect example. Back in the 1830s when it was decided to extend St Georges Terrace and create Adelaide Terrace, Roe refused point blank to have his precious house and veggie garden disturbed. It explains why there is a kink in the road where St Georges Terrace and Adelaide Terrace link up.

When the Swan River colony grew, a rush of sorts began to identify the best arable land near Perth. Surveyor General Roe had first choice of the best rural land in WA. He chose Mandoon on the upper reaches of the Swan River.

In short, Mandoon is a fantastic location, an excellent winery, and something which a stalwart member of our bowls community, Alan Erceg, must feel immensely proud.

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 from afar sitting in my lounge chair.


Three Letters

Osborne Park Master Singles

November 15, 2016
Osborne Park have taken over the running of Master Singles previously run by the Sorrento Bowling Club, we congratulate and thank Ian Wittber and the Sorrento Bowling Club for their outstanding efforts over the past 16 years to keep this wonderful event on the bowling calendar.

The event which has a rich history dating back to 1970 will for the first time have section play on the first two days.

Trevor Barron the premier organizer in WA will be in charge of this event, he invites qualified players to nominate .

The entry form is on the flyer

Details and entry form

Captain's corner

November 3, 2016
Martin Swift was recently elected to the position of Osborne Park Club Captain, he will provide regular weekly information sheet.

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.

More Congrats to the W.A. BPL team

November 14, 2016
Hi Sherro:
Just a little note to say the wife and myself were at the BPL at Pine Rivers Bowling Club last week and thoroughly enjoyed the bowls. As far as WA went they performed to their best ability and did WA proud, they had some very close games which could have gone either way.

At least they didn't finish bottom, teams below them had players that represent Australia. I believe there were a few people thought different but they weren't here.

Eddie Dodd

Congrats to the W.A. BPL team

November 11, 2016
the good thing that has come out of the bowls being shown live on Foxtel is the great draw bowling by the Crown Suns team from Western Australia.

They have won their 3 games shown on TV & in the main their draw bowling has been terrific & won them those games, I must say that out of all the girls in the teams Kris Kristic has been outstanding.

Congratulations to them all
Roger Barns

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.
