Senior State Mixed Pairs

Congrats to Prickles Thorn and Kerry Andersen on their win in the Mixed Senior State Pairs today. They defeated Kathy Goggart and Bill Savvell 18-15.

Last year Thorn remarked that to win you have to go into battle with good Cattle, so once again it was the dynamic duo that who held the whiphand all the way throughout to win the event.It is a great effort on their part to accomplish the feat against very solid competition.

It seems it is raining major event wins for the Thorn family, back to back in the mixed pairs for Prickles and his brother Phil winning the Victorian State singles, geeeeeez there will be some celebrating in the Thorn Households tonight in both States one would think.

Commiserations to Kathy Gobbart and Bill Savell, they were a terrific duo, word to come from the game was the terrific driving of Kathy Gobbart. Not much in the game to decide the winner.


April 28, 2016
Down to the semi-finals of the Senior Mixed State Pairs.
The defending Champions Prickles Thorn and Kerry Adersen are in great form and in a good position to defend their title.

Interestingly The Savell's of Mandurah are going great gun's but they are in different teams, Julie is playing with Pat Caffell and Bill is playing with Kathy Gobbart and every chance they could meet one and other in the final on Friday.

The Senior State Paris runner up Steve O`Neil who has combined with the outstanding Lady Bowler Kay Blackwell could just as easily take the honours such is their form.

It should be a riveting day of Bowls at Gosnells tomorrow

PBA news

April 29, 2016
The PBA has indeed come a long way since it was first started here in the West with Kyle McIlroy taking up the running and organization of the event some years back. The event here has gone from strength to strength.

Good news for the participants is the winners of the Scottish Singles, and the International open singles will go directly to the UK rather than play in the semi-final or final playoffs on the East Coast as has been the case in the past for these two events.

The other events such as the World Indoor Singles and the Pairs winners here will have to go to Tweed Heads for the National playoffs.

The event is at innaloo Bowling Club and starts Wednesday 11th May at 6.00 PM followed up on Friday 13th at 6.00 PM then all day on Saturday and Sunday if needed.

Phillip Thorn win the State Singles

April 22, 2016
It was an ecstatically happy Prickles Thorn who rang me to tell me his Brother had won the State singles, "Hang on mate what State singles? ".

With a lot of pride, he said "yep me brother, he has gone and won the Victorian State singles" and then added. "Geez, he has done better than me you know! I was runner up twice in our's, but he's gone and won the big one over there, actually by winning the State singles he has added to the 13 other singles titles he has won over his career".

Well a quick check on the Bowls Victoria website and sure enough it was true, Phil Thorn had won the State singles but the record showed he had won 25-0. Obviously a misprint, it was a 25-24 victory.

He had to beat the current Australian Open singles champ Aaron Wilson in the ΒΌ finals and did so 25-17. That was a sign he could go all the way which he ended up doing, but not before having to play an enthralling and hearstopping final against Matt Higgins.

Thorn led 15-8 and was on the way to claim the title but nope! Matt Higgins was not going away and knuckled down to play the bowls that helped him get to the final and kept Thorn scoreless as he raced away to a 21-15 lead over Thorn.

Wow !! time for some heavy lifting for Thorn, back he came to reel in the deficit to be 23-24 down.

The next end produced the winner of the event when Thorn two down and the game on the line, sunk the Jack in the well for two and brought more glory and fame for the Thorn name to become the new Victorian State Singles Champ.

With this victory you would not find a prouder Brother than Prickles Thorn.

Welcome to our new sponsor

April 16, 2016
Osborne Park Bowling Club take this opportunity to introduce you to Chris Smith of Dyenamic Bowls Uniforms and Embroidery WA.

Chris, a former England Test Cricketer (his brother Robin also played Test cricket for England and also works in the business) was the Chief Executive of the Western Australian Cricket Association from 1991-1998. On leaving the WACA, he purchased Embroidery WA and since then he has grown a very small embroidery company into one employing 45 staff and embroidering over 20,000 garments per week.

Two (2) years ago, Chris created Dyenamic Sublimation (follow this link to see a short video of the factory: Video and as of 1 January this year, has been given a license to supply the Bowls Clubs of Western Australia with the colourful bowls garments we all wear.

Chris' factory is based in Welshpool and the entire manufacturing process takes place in Welshpool.

With almost all Bowls sublimated clothing being imported, it is a refreshing change to have someone making this product entirely in Perth and we would like to strongly recommend you give Chris' company a go ...

We at the Osborne Park Bowling Club are very impressed with the quality of their garments.

Sorrento Master Singles

March 30, 2016
The Sorrento Bowling Club has decided not to continue its sponsorship of the Masters Singles, after 15 years of doing so.

Given that this event has been going since 1961, we understand that Sorrento has approached BowlsWA to take over the running of the Master Singles at Sorrento and keep it at this venue. We await the outcome.

The departure of Ian Wittber, who's contribution has been enormous, will be a huge loss to the sport after the years of sacrifice he has made to make this event a goer.

Every year he had to clock up the days and weeks running around to find sponsors and players to enter in the Sorrento Master Singles. Countless phone calls and emails all played their part to ensure the field would be a competitive and exciting one.

He is one of the nicest and most helpful people in the world of Lawn Bowls. People like Ian Wittber are not easily replaced.
We also thank the Sorrento Bowling Club for their continued support and continuation of the Master Singles after the closure of the original club holder of the event, Royal Park.

Osborne Park selected to host State Seniors Sides series

March 3, 2016
The Board of Bowls WA has ratified the selection of the Osborne Park Bowling Club as the host club for the National Over 60's Sides Series in October. Six clubs had applied for host club status in what has become the largest state team tournament annually, following the withdrawal of the Northern Territory ladies from this year's Open Sides Series.

With all states and territories now confirmed the event is eagerly looked forward to, with WA having performed strongly in recent years.

The winning application was based around quality greens, guaranteed catering capabilities and proximity to excellent accommodation in the Scarborough area.

The Board thanked all nominating clubs, in what was a very difficult decision to make.

Internations Carnival

April 30, 2016

Scotland have suffered a minor upheaval hence the S.O.S. (Save Our Scotland.)

Team manager John Walker and a couple of the other Scottish players will not be available for the INTERNATIONS CARNIVAL to be held 30th April and 1st of May 2016. (Probably off fighting POMS)

Jimmy Irwine has agreed to act as team manager until the return of John Walker, however in the meantime the Scotland team require additional players with Scottish Heritage to help fill the void and field a competitive team to represent their nation.

Bowlers of Scottish Heritage who want to be part of this prestigious event are invited to contact Jim Irwine on Tel 9493 2228 or email who can provide further details.

Bowlers who are not aware of the ins and outs of the Internations Carnival only have to ask around their club and somebody will be able to advise them.

It is a great carnival with a great tradition and is instrumental in raising thousands of dollars for charity.

November 30, 2015
Hi Sherro, Just got back from a wonderful lunch & afternoon at Mandoon Estate.

The setting is great, the Homestead Brewery where we had lunch was terrific & the service from a waiter called Matthew was out of this world.

This was mine & our friends first visit & I can assure you that we will be back.

There must have been some 200 people having lunch at the Brewery & the restaurant I was told was sold out with 120 people having lunch as well.

There is plenty of parking, children's play grounds, well grassed areas & bars open outside the Brewery & Restaurant if you don't want to sit inside.

Thought I would let you know as Mandoon is one of your sponsors, so to all Bowlers if you are looking for a great place to go for lunch or afternoon enjoyment give Mandoon Estate ago you will not be disappointed.

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
