A big THANKYOU to the 120 people who attended the Cancer Council Big Morning Tea hosted by the Joondalup Bowling Club on June 16.
Once seated everyone enjoyed a scrumptious High-Tea, baked and prepared by the Lady Members and some from the wider community. Stephanie Morey won the Bake-Off Competition with her delicious Chiffon Cake! The $100 Lucky Cup was won by Dianne Manno, Maryanne Fields and Sue Parry were Wizards with the Quizzes, Rennae Stapleton and Chantell Rosenthal won the Silent Auctions, paintings donated by our resident Artist, Nancy Sutton! Jen Ewen won the Daintiest and most Exquisite Cup ‘n Saucer and Robbie Rosenthal won the Novelty Mug Prize!
A member of the Club, who wishes to remain anonymous, donated the $50 Money Tree, won by Sue from the Joondalup Golf Club; she very generously donated the money to the Cancer Council. Our Guest Speaker, Jan Mann, the Co-Ordinator in WA, from “Knitted Knockers”, an Australia wide Organisation, affiliated with the McGrath Foundation spoke about the Prosthetics knitted for women who have had Breast Surgery! The response was amazing; ladies approached her wanting to join up to knit these. Others enquired about the woollen Prosthetics! The Multi Raffle was very popular.....36 Prizes were on offer, thanks to the Generosity of Club members and the wider Community! An amazing thing happened, if someone’s name was drawn out for another prize, they declined the prize and a redraw was done to give everyone an opportunity to win a prize, how generous is that!
Last but not least a big THANKYOU to all the Members who helped out, leading up to the Event and on the day, your help was invaluable. Those of you who were assigned to the Kitchen Duties, l know you were all run off your feet, topping up the plates of food and replenishing the Teapots, my sincere THANKYOU. To all the Volunteers who helped out with the Raffles etc., a job well done, we made $3070.00 to aid a great Foundation of which we are all familiar with, be it ourselves, family members, friends or friends of friends, l’m sure we’ve been impacted some way.
The day was one of Friendship and Kindness, Generosity and caring.
I hope to see you all next year.....Thankyou ALL!

The Management Committee and the Greens Committee are pleased to announce the commencement of the paving project to start next week.
Due to the commencement of these major works at the club on Wednesday and Thursday next week the 23rd and 24th of June 2021 all Greens will be closed for these two days.
This project is in line with the Club’s Strategic plan to ensure we supply a safe environment for play. This work is in preparation for the paving that is being installed between the A and B greens The grassed area to be replaced has deteriorated to the point of being a concern for players safety. It is proposed to pave the area from the front gate to the section between A and B Greens and then all the way to the start of the D and C Greens.
This is an exciting project and will enhance not only the ascetic’s of the area but also the safety of that area as well.
The majority of the preparation work this week will commence at 07:30am on Wednesday the 23rd and hopefully be completed within the two days
We do require volunteer assistance on these days to manually dig out smaller area’s where the Operators machinery cannot reach. If you can assist and bring a shovel or spade please ring or text Brett on 0419196074.
After the preparation and during the project greens B and D may be available for play however access to them may be changed. Entry at this stage during the project will be through the double gates close to the new Toilet block.
We also may need to close the greens for short periods during the project.
Please also be aware that the Outdoor Cabinet housing the Mats and Jacks is to be moved temporarily to the front of B green. This will also include the combination lock cupboard that houses the practice equipment which is currently on the green keepers shed wall.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this project many cause during its completion. We will keep you up to date with access and availability during the project..
Joondalup Bowling Club was awarded Metropolitan Club of the Year at the WA Bowls Award last night (28th May) and to top it off Geoff Stephenson was awarded WA Coach of the year.
What amazing accolades but fully deserved on both counts.
Congratulations to Geoff for his recognition and to all members of JBC because in the end the Club is no more nor less than the members who make it up.
The Club was represented at the Awards by our Club Volunteer of the Year Richard Wyatt, Men’s Match Captain Andrew Groves, Immediate Past President Dave Webber, myself and our respective wives Lisa, Vanessa and Joy.
One of the earlier awards was for Coach of the Year and that set us off on a winning run. Dave accepted the award on behalf of Geoff who is away on holiday and was therefore unable to attend. Under questioning from the Master of Ceremonies Dave gave a glimpse of the almost unbelievable amount of time and effort that has been put in by Geoff over many years. Geoff has done an incredible job coaching prospective members, new members, including junior members and competitive players, providing skill exercises throughout the Pennant’s season. That in addition to many other ways in which Geoff has contributed to the Club. Dave also managed to convey that it was not only what Geoff has done but the manner in which he has done so – a true Club person in every way. Well done Geoff.
Then the Metropolitan Club of the Year award was announced to general acclaim and noisy whooping from our table. It had been agreed beforehand that, if we won, Dave should accept the award in recognition of his role in developing the submission and his dedication to the Club for so long, being involved in one way or another in almost all of the activities, which together contributed to the winning of the Award. It proved a fitting and well deserved way for Dave to end his term as President.
This is a really amazing achievement for a Club as young as it is. But it is testament to how much the Club is doing right. The credit for this extends back to a succession of past Presidents and Club Officials and older members of the Club right up to members at the present time. A reading of our submission shows the extent of the Club’s activities in the Community, the range of social bowling activities provided, our success competitively on the greens and the way in which the profile of the Club has been lifted. None of this could have occurred without our hard working committees and especially all those members who volunteer their time to assist in the planning, preparation and running of these activities. A big thank you to each and every one of you.
It is hard to imagine a better start of the Club year. It goes without saying the Club is in great shape. Now is a time for us to consolidate what we have achieved and hopefully reap the benefit of the hard work that has been put in to date. If we can implement the Strategic Plan we adopted last year we should be able to do that. While there are potential tangible results which could follow from the consideration being given to projects such as the construction of a deck area on the eastern side of the Club, or the provision of an artificial green, there are other less tangible but important outcomes which will maintain, and enhance, the collegiate atmosphere of the Club, and which will benefit all bowlers whatever form of the game they choose to follow.
Let’s look forward to the year ahead.
Joondalup bowling club match committee are going to host a 24 hr roll-off to help raise money for telethon.
Wednesday June 23rd, at 5.00 pm, we will hold an open meeting at the club to discuss how we host the event.

Dennis Owen Club Person of the Year Award 2020/2021
Dennis Owen was a very passionate member of our club over many years. He enjoyed his bowls and provided his accounting expertise and advice to the club through the bingo committee and as club auditor. Dennis made a special bequest to the club in his will. We hold these funds separately for special purposes decided upon by the committee one of which is this award. Dennis also donated the aluminium benches on the eastern side of the greens.
The award this year goes to a very hard working individual who has been at this club for a number of years now and while still employed full time has been able to fit in:
· Bingo calling
· Painting the Sports bar area, the Bowling club and JSA offices and toilets, plus
· Organising, co-ordinating and running a very successful community bowls program over a seven week period for the past 7 years.
John Bartlett and Bill Brown
Monday is the traditional green’s maintenance day at all bowling clubs. Greens get their only watering for the week. Pipes have to be moved from green to green which is not usually a one person job. Surrounds have to mowed, garden beds tended to keep the greens outskirts looking terrific. During the season greens need to be renovated and top dressed.Sure we pay a greenkeeper to do a lot of this work but Craig could not handle the full Monday work load without the assistance of volunteers.Over the past 20 plus years if have arrived at the club really early on a Monday morning say 7 am or driven by you will have seen two of our hardest working and longstanding volunteers going about their roles. Namely, John Bartlett and Bill Brown.It’s pretty difficult talking about one without the other as their stories in many facets mirror each other. Apart from all that they are both very handy bowlers.Thanks also to Shirley Brown and Lynn Bartlett for letting Bill and John come out to play.
John joined the club back in 1998 when we first moved to this site. He was presented with probably the first ever Club Person of the Year Award in May 2000. Over the next 20+ years – apart from a couple of years break when he went travelling around the country- He has been involved with:·
. the planting and establishment of new greens
· Laying the brick surrounds for the banks
· Fitting the rubber inserts in the ditches of all greens
· John has also Cut greens and mowed surrounds
· Shifted pipes, top dressed and
· Found time to work the BBQ for 5 years during the 6 week community bowls
Bill joined the club in 2001. Apparently he was tapped on the shoulder to work on the Bingo team but decided that the outdoors was where he wanted to be and started his 20 year stint of:
· Helping out around the greens on a Monday morning
· He has worked with all the green keepers that the club has employed.
· Assisted with the planting of greens
· Moving the watering pipes
· Attending to the garden surrounds, and
· On the shovel top dressing greens most seasons
.· He also put in 5 years working the BBQ’s for community bowls alongside John.
A man who joined our club in 2003 and has worked tirelessly over the past 16 years pretty much behind the scenes providing his financial acumen and business knowledge directly and indirectly to the clubs past committees
. · Club auditor for 5 years in the early days and again last year.· Bingo finance operations over at least 10 years
· Advising and mentoring club treasurers during that same period of time and
· More recently over the past 4 years as part of the bowling clubs JSA treasury team.
His invaluable assistance to that team especially to Chris Leggett, David Webber and JSA Manager Sue Pegg, even though his health of late has not been the best, has and still continues to be outstanding. Also with his younger brother back in 2006 Murray won the State third division and under State Pairs which obviously doesn’t qualify him for Life Membership but was a great achievement for him personally and for our club
On a personal note Murray has been a very good supporter, friend and sounding board to me during my time as President.
Murray accepting his life membership with his wife Mary looking on.
We have a wrong bias tin in which members deposit $2.00 if they happen to put down a wrong biased bowl. So if you are playing pennants, a championship event, and social bowls or even just practicing we are sure your fellow bowlers will remind you about the tin, if you happen to forget. In the time the wrong bias tin has been going over $1732.00 has been raised to go towards a donation to Cancer research and Legacy.
Thank you to all those members who continue to forget to look at the bias before delivery.
