MENS PENNANTS RESULTS - Round 15

17th March 20

I have been holding off the review until we know what the repercussions of this fascinating round brings. With the suspension of the season and it's future unknown, we act in a bit of limbo. How is the treatment of promotion/demotion going to be treated? Will we see finals action, at any stage? This Premier League was about to embark on an action packed couple of weeks, especially Round 17 where I think the 4 teams may well be finalised at the end of it, but now we don't know.
I'm disappointed, not in the decision as I think it is the right call by both Bowls Australia and Bowls WA to be considerate of the health of it's players in the age demographic in which the risk is much higher, but disappointed as I was looking forward to playing finals and testing myself and us as a 16 at Bassendean against the very best. It may still happen, but not for a while.
Every 24 hours seems to bring news and developments, we await to see the story develop further.

NEWS

16th March 20 - This today from Bowls WA -
This afternoon the Bowls Australia Board, key BA Staff and the State and Territory Chief Executive Officers met by teleconference to review the current scenarios facing the sport in light of the COVID-19 virus.
It was agreed that any decision made must be in the best health interests of the competitors, club staff and volunteers, particularly given the age demographic of our sport. In addition, any decisions made must acknowledge the advice of health authorities and government, both state and federal.
As a result of this advice, Bowls Australia will make an announcement tomorrow morning regarding the continuance of events for the foreseeable future.
Following that Bowls WA will make a follow up announcement on the future conduct of pennants, ladies country week and state events.

JOKES

16th March 20 - Maybe a bit of levity in these strange times.

POLL

15th March 20 - The coronavirus is spreading like wildfire and our sport is more susceptible to it than most. Some talk today about cancelling the remainder of the season. Should we? Australia wide has banned gatherings of 500 people, local tennis, athletics, Mandurah Crabfest and I dare say others have been cancelled. Crowds to the AFL, NRL and NBL are being locked out. Should we as a sport be proactive and consider the health and future of the participants, even if it means a season that comes to nothing? Have your say on my poll. Leave comments there or send to me at info@bowls360.com.au

RESULTS

15th March 20 - Doubleview Masters Fours sectional was played today, 16 teams and 4 sections. We are down to 4 winners to play next Sunday, not sure yet of the time but will advise when known. All 4 left are great teams and should be a cracking finals day. Click Here for sectional results.

LETTERS

11th March 20 - A piece in the review for White alluded again to the "sharpiegate" incident from Round 6 whch contained some factually incorrect assertions against Osborne Park. I have now deleted the paragraph. I have also received a letter from someone about this incident. I am putting together the facts and hopefully get time to upload tomorrow, as there seem to continue to be some uninformed information about how that whole round went down. Hopefully the letter and my response to it will alleviate any ambiguity surrounding the "sharpiegate" incident going forward.

24th February 20 - The Bushfire Relief game was played last Friday night at South Perth, a great night it was too. Lots of laughter and enjoyment, crowd was very generous with their support of raffles and food, and an element of seriousness as well as both North and South wanted to win. In the end the trophy was given to the South team, rink scores are not known and not really kept accurately but my guess would be about 10-20 shots they won by. Final figures are still being tabulated but it is thought the night will raise in excess of $10k.
The highlight for me was the substitutions of young Slavich and Alberti. They really set the crowd alight with the quality of their player and their enthusiasm for the game.
It's a great compliment to Ash Sharp and all his team of helpers for getting this off the ground and in play. Hopefully it can become an annual event to raise money for various causes in the future.

RESULTS - State Singles

27th January 20 - WEll have a new winner and a multiple winner, congratulations go to John Slavich of Doubleview and Laura Merz of Manning for winning the state singles this year. Slavich seemed to have the game incontrol before a comeback of sorts by Butler but it was snuffed out 21-14 to get the last 4 shots and win 25-14. He is now a multiple winner of this most coveted prize.
The Ladies started in similar fashion, Laura Merz looking in complete control before Kerry Anderson came back hard, even hitting the front at 23-22 but Merz steadied to win an enthralling game 25-23. It is her maiden State Singles title to go with her numourous other state titles.

25th January 20 - What a brilliant day of singles I saw today at Bassendean, and looking at the other venues results it looks like some great bowls played across all 3 venues.
In the men, we are down to 8 -
John Slavich the winner in 2016 and runner up in 2014 had some good wins today over Colin Hayes 21-12, Geoff Watson 21-16 and then Shane Knott 21-11. He looks in sublime touch in a half of the draw that is very winnable for him
John Carlsen is the surprise of the tournament, there always is, and he stays alive beating Neville Woods 21-19, Eddie Gollan 21014 and then Marcus Simpson 21-19
Jack East is a young player with a bright future, I predicted him to win a state singles within 3 years and he is tracking nicely here to win it in 2020. He defeated Steve Unsworth 21-18 and then cruised thru his next 2 games, Cameron Harris 21-6 and Scott Walker also 21-6. Gary Caffell the old stalwart having a wonderful singles campaign and he is not out of this by any stretch. He has been runner up twice, in 2016 and also in 2005. Can he turn the tables and get his first state singles title? He won over Lee Such 21-16, Shane Rixom 21-8 and then Ty Alberti 21-3
Cody Packer is still looking in ominous touch, he defeated Gary Keep 21-6 and was cruising against Justin Opie 19-2 and 20-6 but Opie fired, was a great game to watch but Packer played a perfect shot to sit out an Opie bowl and win 21-18, and then won against his state pairs partner Matt Mitchell 21-9
Daniel Trewhella for someone who only plays state events played some amazing bowls today, it must be so tempting for the state selection commitee to enquire about his availability as he is easily in our best 12 at the moment. Runner up as well in 2019 and 2006, he won over Tom Mitchell 21-13, Charlie McKay 21-8 and then Charlie Slavich 21-3
Blake Butler last years winner is going for back to back, the first time since Ford won in 1929/30, and he was in trouble early in 2 of his games but fought back to win them. They were against Ryan Havercroft 21-16, Ruairi Kenyon 21-19 and then William Hyatt 21-10
Scott O'Brien is becoming a noted singles player after his exploits at The Everest a couple of years ago, and he is going deep here in the State Singles by defeating Tod Weir 21-4, Jim Robertson 21-18 and then the big scalp of Daniel Brown 21-11
For the ladies, upsets ahoy and this year will see a first time winner from the semi finalists that are left -
Laura Merz got the bye first game and then went on to win over Irene arndt in a nail biter 21-20 and then Irene Kozak 21-13. Of the 4 that are left she is the most highly credentialled left and becomes the favourite to win
Shaan Saunders is no stranger to singles titles after her win in the Mt Lawley Consistency about 4 years ago so she will push Laura all the way and will have a say about that favouritism! She also had the bye before wins over Denise Kelly 21-12 and then Toni Madigan 21-12
Kerry Anderson our bowls president is still live, her first game came against a Smith of the Sian variety 21-11 and then the big upset, defeating Kristina Krstic 21-18 before showing it was no fluke to win over Irene Leahy 21-13
Elaine Meehan is our last semi finalist and admittedly it's not a name I'm overly familiar with so she can keep playing with some freedom as every win is a bonus. Might even get a state title at the end of it! She won today over Tracey Newman 21-9, Jenny Parker 21-14 and then Shari Solly 21-6. Big names and she will be confident of playing well Monday

Play continues Monday at Osborne Park, Ladies semi finals commence at 8.45am, not sure what time the men start but I would guess not far outside of that time. I think live streaming will also occur but will attempt to find that out and post details tomorrow.

21st January 20 - I know most people have probably found these by now but here are the results for both the sections and knockout games coming up.

23rd January 20 - Well I have finally been able to collate all the tips and we had 1 sole winner with 71 correct! The average was 57.49 and the median score was 61, so this is a great effort. Well done to Peter Flack from Sorrento! He wins the $50 voucher to the Cork and Bottle in Bassendean. Flacky, if you visit Mike Bessant then he will look after you for dinner and a few drinks. It's a great place and well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Our winning tips was 20, which was shared by 4 tippers - Daniel Newton, Ken Monkhouse, Steve Novak and Stein Davies. So to split the equals we go by who they tipped, and none tipped the winning pair of Packer/Mitchell. In fact none of the selections these four had to win even got to the Round of 16. So I will pay Mike Bessant of the Cork and Bottle a visit during the week and we will draw out a winner. Full results of the tipping can be found clicking the link above.

CLUB NEWS

2nd January 20 "Bowls and Bag stolen please be on the lookout.
Jane from Vic Park had her bowls bag stolen out of her car New Year's Day.
They are purple with red fleck and a smiling worm logo. They are TAYLOR SR Size 2. Cant believe someone would do this to Jane on New Year's Day and the day before her birthday.
Jane also lost a brand new bowls bag and hundreds of dollars worth of measuring gear as Jane is also the volunteer umpire for our Club.
They are her prized possession and she is devastated that someone could do this. She is also supposed to be the the Umpire for The Vic Park ladies touch of class event on her birthday but now won't have her gear.
Can all fellow bowlers please keep an eye out on gumtree eBay and cash converters for someone trying to sell these bowls it would be appreciated or if you see a stranger walking around vic park dragging a silver black bowls bag.
If you come across them please ring Jane 0419322779 or Paul on 0419930467

Thank you
Regards
Paul
