Words of Praise for our A & S Automotive

February 12, 2016

Sherro just to let you and the visitors to the site know I needed to have my car serviced and have some minor repairs fixed by your sponsor, Steve Murray of A & S Automotive.

They were excellent; they even corrected a couple of what could have been future problems that I was not aware of.

I would recommend Steve Murray's Automotive company to all bowlers after receiving the friendly first class service they provided.

Doubleview 2016 Master Pairs draw

February 9, 2016
The Doubleview Master Pairs is one of the major highlights of the bowling calandar and gets underway this coming Sunday.

The first week of the draw is the best we have seen for many years. The sections are a promoters dream, so good is the draw I doubt there is a person who could predict the outcome of who the section winners would be.

I would urge bowlers to go to Doubleview to watch many of the best players go head to head, the draw is as good as it will ever get.

We thank Mark Simpson the manager of the Sandy Cove Tavern in Sth Yunderup. He has donated a $100 voucher to have lunch at the Tavern If anyone can select the winners of the first seven sections in the first round.
If there is more than one correct entry, a draw will be conducted, the first entry drawn is the winner

Words of praise for Mandoon Estate

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.

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?

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.
