Tuesday night we had a very good turnout for the jitney and Ralph Stoffers, playing with Al Gourd consolidated his position at the top of the jitney standings.
We had a great turnout once again for our new bowler evenings on Wednesday with 22 players. This coming Wednesday is the final week and hopefully we will see some of the visitors sign up as members. We are already ahead of last year’s numbers so things are looking good.
Congratulations the team of Nan Hendren, Dave Shirley and Kathleen Shirley who won a mixed triples tournament at Whitby on Wednesday. Well done guys. Photo courtesy of Whitby LBC. They've cut off my head said Dave!
Do you ever wish you could be a better bowler? I’m sure all of us wish that and the way you can become better is to practise. And we can help you with that. Most Friday afternoons the greens are free for practice and sometime between 2.00 pm and 5.00 pm you can find me at the club practising and available to help you if you wish.
It was good to see several members at the club watching the men’s pairs on Saturday. When playing in an event it is encouraging to have support from the veranda and one of the big benefits of your membership is to sit on the veranda watch some fine bowling and enjoy the best view in Cobourg looking out over the park and the lake.
On Saturday Baylee van Steijn was playing in the Ontario Singles Championships at Agincourt. She had a tough draw and in her first game had to play the reigning Canadian singles champion, Cathy Larking from Cosburn Park. In a tight match she lost out to Cathy 21-19. She bounced back to win her second game 21-7 but then lost her third game. As the format was double knock out that was the end of the road for Baylee but her time will come.
In the James Gordon Insurance Men’s Pairs which I have already referred to the top Cobourg team was Dave Shirley and John Hawryszko who were the two game high winners with 42+1 points. (I din't cut off his head as you will seen on the photos page. In second place as a substitute for game 3 was Bill Bickle! Robert and David Steffen from Oshawa were playing together but at the end of the second game David injured his back and could not continue. Bill Bickle stood in for him and played very well to help Robert to another win and second place.
The ParticipAction Community Better challenge has now finished and nationally Canadians tracked just over 263 million minutes. We tracked all club activity throughout the two week period and totalled 40,080 minutes. A big thanks to Vice President Nancy Fargo and Director Mike Place for organising this. It will be repeated again next year and if you have downloaded the App you can continue to track your daily activity.
Enjoy your week. It's nearly Canada Day and still time to sign up for the club tournament. This is always a fun day.
