We will be hosting the Bunnings Christmas Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings Joondalup on Saturday the 23rd of December between 7am and 4pm. This event provides a wonderful opportunity for our club to raise valuable funds, promote our club and engage with the community.
This event will only be successful with the support from all members.
A volunteer roster has been placed on the notice board in the committee room to allow members to add their name, the task they want to be involved in and the shift they want to do.
We are looking for people to be in the BBQ Cook, BBQ Sales, Raffle Ticket Sales and the Pack Up/Clean Up team.
Shift 1 will be 7am until 11-30am and Shift 2 will be from 11-30 am until 4pm.
Many people will help share the load but if you can’t spare the time please consider making a donation for the day by supplying a pack of soft drink, pack of water or even some items that can be used for the raffles.
If any members have large ice chests or eskies that could be borrowed for the day please let me know as we need to keep around 1200 sausages cool and get the drinks cold.
Please reach out to myself or Dot Leslie if you have any questions.
If you have any donations please let either of us know and we will pick them up from you.
Thank you for anticipated support in this event!
Greg Barry and Dot Leslie

Two teams in top form entered the WA Men’s State Fours Final and they both put on a terrific show going bowl for bowl. The jack was trailed often, bowls were sat out by the opposition often and the skips drew important shots for their team often.
Matthew Mitchell, Mark Douthie, Miles Kemp, and Scott O’Brien started the game strongly by collecting two 3’s in the first three ends to lead 6-1. Shane Giudice-Nairn, Joel Leeson, Jon Trotter, and Ben Leggett hit back by winning three consecutive ends to draw level at 6-6. A single to Mitchell was followed by consecutive 3’s to Guidice-Nairn to get to the halfway mark leading 12-7.
Amazing bowls continued to flow, and every end was up for grabs until the last bowl. Mitchell grabbed a big 4 shots to close within one and then got a single to even it up. Giudice- Nairn took a two and Mitchell grabbed another 4 to take a two-shot lead. Another 4 was won, but this time it was to Giudice-Nairn as he retook the lead 18-16. The scorecard made it look like not a lot of defense was taking place but in reality it was the result of close heads and every bowl making a difference and making it possible for a team to score in multiples.
A single to Giudice-Nairn on the 4th last end and a single to Mitchell on the 3rd last end kept the margin at two, but then a 2 to Giudice-Nairn on the second last end, suddenly made life very difficult for Mitchell with a 21-17 lead to Giudcie-Nairn. For most of the last end a 4 was highly possible for Mitchell but a well-drawn second shot to Giudice-Nairn with his last bowl, made that result, while still possible, unlikely. Mitchell took the only real option to him, which was to try and kill the end. Unfortunately for Matt Mitchell, his bowl missed the jack by millimeters and Shane Giudice-Nairn, Joel Leeson, Jon Trotter, and Ben Leggett took the title of WA Men’s State Fours Champion’s 21-18.

There has been a lot going on around the club lately!
Firstly, Joondalup Bowling Club was showcased to Australia at the recent National Bowls Championships! To all involved congratulations and thank you for making the event so successful. It has been non-stop accolades from all involved from officials at Bowls Aus. through to competitors and spectators. JBC has been put on the bowls world map! The club will formally acknowledge the contribution of members over the coming week.
Next, JBC has now joined the ranks of Premier League clubs having just played our first ever game. Numbered caps were presented to the first team and will continue to be presented to players representing JBC in PL. Thanks to Eugene and Keypointe for the support with the hats. Unfortunately, the result didn’t go our way but we now know what is expected at this level. It was a mixed bag of results throughout the week in other games with some great victories and a few losses. Next week will be better I am sure. To all representing the club in pennants, thank you for efforts. Keep practicing and strive to get better.
Thanks as always to all of volunteers who enable club to keep improving. From our hardworking management committee to the Bingo crew with the set up team to the helpers, callers, money folk and the clean up team. Big thanks.
From the team of helpers who put time and effort (and a fair degree of sweat) into the preparation of our greens. They are always fantastic to bowl on! We are very lucky.
To the selectors – it is a thankless job and we know you are making decisions with, what you believe, are the best interests of the club in mind. If you are a player and you are not happy with your selection, you have every right to question the selectors. But, please, do it the right way. It helps nothing if you behave like a child and try to hold the club to ransom by threatening to leave, or not play when you do not get your own way. The club will not tolerate any abuse or mistreatment of selectors or any other member as there is no room in our club for this behaviour. Be club focussed, ask in the right way and then go and play well to prove your point!
Thanks to all others who just do things that are often not noticed by many. I can assure you that I notice because without you doing what you do, problems arise and if I, as Club President, am not dealing with problems, I know all of these little things are just being done. I am not very busy at the moment because of you, so please keep doing what you do.
It has been great to see our new shirts on display since their arrival. They were a huge hit during the recent Nationals and many were taken home to be worn on the other side of the country. We are even getting online orders for them. There may need to be a new position created as ‘merchandise officer’ if things keep going the way they are! If interested, let me know!
Joondalup Bowling Club- Home of the Mighty Dolphins is continuing to grow into the power club we deserve and strive to be. This only happens through the efforts and performance of its members. That is YOU!
Keep doing what you are doing and always try to better - A better player, a better club person and a better human!
As a club we simply cannot survive without the wonderful contribution made by a large and dedicated group of volunteers. We simply need more volunteers that can help with activities and keep the club strong and vibrant.
The bingo team runs bingo in the main hall every Monday night. The team performs a range of functions from setting up the tables/chairs, selling bingo books, selling raffle tickets, doing the finances, checking the games and calling the games. Bingo is a vital income earner for the club which must be maintained. We need to add more volunteers to our roster so that we can operate each Monday night, make some really good income and help give some of our team a very well deserved rest. The roles we have for bingo are not difficult and full training will be provided.
You may even have some fun and meet some really nice people!
Please register your interest by submitting your details below and one of the Bingo Team will contact you, introduce you to the team, run through what is required and arrange some training.
Greg Barry – Senior Vice President
The barefoot bowls team manages events where groups of social bowlers want to get together and have a go at bowls while having a few drinks over a couple of hours. We need to add more volunteers to our pool so that we can accommodate these bookings, make some good income, help give some of our team a rest and hopefully attract some new members to the club.
You may even have some fun and meet some really nice people!
Please register your interest by by submitting your details below and one of the Barefoot Bowls Team will contact you, introduce you to the team, run through what is required and arrange some training.

On 31st November 2021 $715.80 was donated to Cure Cancer.
We have a wrong bias tin in which our Male 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.
From May to November $270 has been added to the tin.
In the time the wrong bias tin has been going over $2,000.00 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.
Thank you letter from Cure Cancer below.
Congratulations to our 2023-24 WA GenesisCare Over 60's Pairs Champions Michael Korycin and Martin Cheesman who won the final 19-11. A hard fought win over the runners-up Eugene O'Sullivan and Ted Alden from Bassendean.
