health for many years never let it stop
She played golf for as long as she
could and when that became too
much Jean continued supporting the
club, always there to help regardless of
how she was feeling, as her husband
Peter had done many years before.
Their dream was to see the club
grow. Over the last eight months
when she was unable to be with us
she was always interested in what was
happening and complaining that she
couldn’t be there to help.
To Jean’s family Martin, Anita, Bev,
Graham and their families we offer our
deepest sympathy in your sad loss of a
lovely gently lady.
Jean you will be missed by all who
had the privilege of knowing her.
Rest in peace dear friend.

It was like musical chairs
for Wednesday Bowls when
Ken Rees had to retire from
his game partnering Renate
Winckel against Kathy Abel
and Bob Lahy.
Hope you are on the mend
Peter Harris moved from
a game of triples to take
Ken’s place and Judy Locker
played swinging lead for Max
Butler and Geoff Venables
and for Alby Marshall and
Ron Wainwright. Peter and
Renate made a good start
but Kathy and Bob were
able to catch up and square
the scores 9/9 on 12. Peter
and Renate then went on a
scoring spree with 12 shots
to one over the next four
ends to lead 21/10. End
both teams are recorded as
gaining one shot.
Peter and Renate 28/18 ,
according to the card. Judy
Locker, Max Butler and Geoff
Venables were right on target
in the early ends to lead Judy
Locker, Alby Marshall and
Ron Wainwright 8/1.
This increased to 13/4
before Ron’s team found
the range and trail by just
one shot on end 15. In
winning the final six ends
five shots to four Judy, Max
and Geoff ran out winners
18/16. Bronwyn Abel, Mario
Frezza and Leonie Snell had
a handy 8/2 lead on seven
over Allan Crowe, Mary
Phillips and Mick Mayhew
until Mick’s team found the
range and from that point it
was a real battle with scores
even on 17. Eight shots to
nil over the last four ends for
Bronwyn, Mario and Leonie
gave them victory 20/12.
Was it the Rodeo or the hot
windy conditions that kept
bowlers away from the green
on Saturday? Max Butler
and Mike Mannile spent nine
of the first 12 ends on two
shots whilst Mario Frezza
and Geoff Venables had nine
times that number of shots.
Mario and Geoff did not let
up to win 31/8.
The other rink was a family
affair with Grae Adams
and Kathy Abel playing Joy
Adams and Bronwyn Abel.
This game was going very
much in favour of Grae and
Kathy when Joy had to retire.
Renate Winckel, though not
dressed for the occasion,
(her Hemline was not the
required inches from the
ground), took her place
with Bronwyn. Many thanks
Renate for stepping in. Grae

when play ceased on end 16.
