So you want to be a singles champion

May 19, 2006
Geoff Oakley, who is in my opinion is the best singles player to ever play in W.A and would be right up there as one of the best ever in Australia in his time.
In one of the world rankings published, Geoff Oakley was 18th ranked out of 2o.
If there was ever a better player in windy conditions, I never saw him. "Mr Houdini" is an apt description of his ability to win from impossible positions.
I saw many a game where he was a goner only to see him win the game.
After a chat with Geoff last week he agreed to let us in on how he achieved his enormous success's

Some where in Queensland

June 24, 2006
A group of Bedford bowlers have gone to sunny Queensland to wreak havoc on the bowling population by winning as many tournaments as they can.
The boys got away to a handy start by winning the DonnyBrook carnival worth $400.00 and that will help to pay for a few cartons of 4xxxxx.
Nigel Minchin, Paul Hunter, Don Mort, and Kevin Collins who loves his 4xxxx more than anyone I know, were the winners
They are playing in a carnival this weekend and all the big guns will be there, so we expect to see a good showing from you fellahs.
The boys have obtained a sponsor and will have shirts, fees and a few beers supplied to play in this event.
Lenny Krajancic has some luck playing the pokies, he is coming home shortly.
We will endeavour to keep track of their exploits

State Fours Play in Rockingham on first day

September 6, 2006
BowlsWA have allocated all sectional play for the first days play in the State fours Championships due to commence in early October to the Rockingham area.
The State Fours attracted 160 entries in 1996. In year 2006 there were 77 entries for this event.
The reasoning behind the decision is to encourage players from the Rockingham/SafetyBay/Mandurah area, which has a large player base, to enter.
This will be an interesting situation to see if the city bowlers particuarly from the Northern Suburbs are willing to travel to Rockingham for the first days play.

How do you feel about this move?
Will the move to play in the Rockingham area affect whether you will enter the State Fours?

Kelvin Kerkow the new Champ

August 24, 2006
Congratulations to Kelvin Kerkow on his brilliant performance winning the Australian Indoor sets play Championship against another great performer in Nathan Rice.
Those who saw Kelvin playing at the Tri-Nations last October at Melville would be well aware of this players enormous skill, it is like he comes from another planet where they play a different brand of bowls.
Our own Mark Lindsay was a little unlucky to draw Nathan Rice in his second round game after defeating Mark Casey because Nathan was playing as well as Nathan could play. Nathan Rice beat Kelvin in the final of the Golden Nugget where every State of Australia was represented except for W.A.

August 22, 2006 7.40 AM
Mark Lindsay was beaten this morning by Nathan Rice. Mark lost both sets.
Our man at Tweed Heads Vince Beckley who rang result thru at 7.40 AM, said that Mark played very well and often had bowls with in 2 inches of the jack only to see Nathan land inside his bowls. I don't have the actual scores but it was something like 13-4, 10-8.
Once again we see W.A bowlers showing they can cut the mustard in the big league. Mark beat last years runner up in this event Mark Casey, yesterday 10-4, 5-12, 2-1.
Last year John Sheridan beat Wayne Turley, another Australian player in the first round.
If W.A players were able to compete in the big Eastern seaboard events more often we would perhaps see the State have a player in the Australian team.
Well done Mark you have done good.
Garry Caffell only just lost his first round game and both Ladies Renate Coote and Carol Wight went out in the first round also.
