20th October 20 - I have put the pennant draw up for the ladies as well as the season preview for Premier League as posted by Bowls WA yesterday and written by Aaron Delaporte
19th October 20 - We have a winner already! No need for selecting the winner of the event to separate 2 tippers on the same score, congratulations go out to Andrew Foster from Cambridge Bowling Club for selecting 25 winners out of a possible 32. He missed on Packer, Butler, Ch Slavich, A Smith, Morss, Wilke and Davidson. Well done Andrew, I will be in contact on how to collect your winning prize of $50 to spend at the Cork and Bottle in Bassendean, thanks again to Mike Bessant for that. A full list of results will be posted during the week. If interested, Foster chose Justin Opie and Kristina Krstic to win the event
16th October 20 - Last days for the tipping, Kristina Krstic and her team are raging favourites and have been from the outset, it is a race in 3 according to the 61 tipsters so far but Krstic has all the running. The men will see the other Packer of the Cody variety start favourites although not as comprehensively. Plenty of support for Justin Opie, Daniel Trewhella, Dave Rankin and John Slavich. Interestingly Blake Nairn has some support to win the event, just not to win his section!! Some names low down from the tipsters thoughts are Shane Knott, Ryan Moyle and Clive Adams, watch out for them at the deep end.
13th October 20 - Day 3, and not much change on the list now from 53 tips. Krstic is still well fancied at 6/4on and really equal 2nd is Helen Morss and Lisa Featherby. Hard to see that changing much in the lead up to Saturday. The Mens still sees Cody Packer as favourite but it's still a bit more open. Justin Opie maintains 2nd favourtism from Daniel Trewhella wtih Dave Rankin 4th favourite. Who will be the favourite when the field jumps at 9.30am Sat morning?
11th October 20 - As mentioned the State Fours draw has been released. Who is going to win? Thanks again to The Cork and Bottle in Bassendean for offering a $50 voucher to use at Mike Bessants bar. Like before, tip in all sections and the person with the most correct tips will win. If there is a tie then the person you choose as the winner will decide, if still tied or no winner correct then I will draw out of a hat.
18th October 20 - for all the day 1 scores from the state fours and also the knockout stages played during the day.
Day 1 saw the demise of our mens favourites Cody Packer and his rink, young Ben Leggett defeating them to make the knockout stages. Other big names to fall include Charlie Slavich, Dave Rankin, Blake Nairn, Helen Morss. some big names left and it promises to be an exciting day at Osborne Park or Bassendean today
16th October 20 - Merredin have a memorial triples on the 8th November.
14th October 20 - Mt Pleasant have had to cancel their carnival next week, howver did get a carnival at Mandurah in November
12th October 20 - The final has been played, a nail biting 31-29 win to Kalamunda's Bill Brandsma over Shane Knott in a gripping final.
11th October 20 - The Everest is down to the quarter finals, and what cracking field it is. The surprise result for me was David Rankins defeat who has been in sublime touch. Mind you he was beaten by a very handy bowler in Bill Brandsma 21-11.
So the quarter finals games today are -
My tip is a Packer v Nairn final. Tune in to Facebook to watch the live broadcasts during the day, search for Everest and watch.
9th October 20 - The State Fours draw has been released. The Ladies entries have gone from 29 last year to 39, and the men has increased from 74 to 87 teams. This warms the cockles, to see such a large increase entries is exceptionally good, and hope it continues to future years. I will be doing a tipping competition again this year as well, keep an eye out for that on Sunday.
8th October 20 - Manning look like they have scored a couple of late signings
5th October 20 - The biggest singles event in Australia is on this weekend. The Everest is fast becoming a must play event, ruined a bit this year with COVID restictions but it will bigger and better than ever next year.
8th October 20 - Remember back in March we started an AFL tipping comp? Yeah I'd forgotten to, but it still went on with about 20 hardy souls tipping every week, and as promised we have a prize to give to the winner. 115 correct tips which is an exceptional effort, well done to Miles Kemp! He has had a good year being a mad Sth Fremantle follower as well. Equal 2nd in the AFL tips on 112 was Scotty (???) and Leigh Salter. Nothing to them though. Miles I will be in touch about your prize, thanks again to The Cork and Bottle for donating a $50 voucher to use at Mike Bessants bar in Bassendean.
