Our junior bowlers all arrived excited for the morning ahead of them. They had a few ends of rolling up on non-championship rinks before presenting to the match officials for a reminder about the match conditions. Both the major final and the minor final consisted of 2 sets of 4 ends each and a 1 end tie-breaker if required.
Encouraged by their adoring fans (parents and relatives) and some awestruck members, our juniors played wonderfully. There were plenty of close bowls from all 4 players which impressed the spectators and received ample applause and praise. There was some particularly fine sportsmanship displayed too. It was rewarding to see how much these 10-12 year old bowlers have learnt in the last 12 months.
The minor final was taken out by Max in a patient win over James to decide our 3rd & 4th place winners.
In the major final we saw a reversal of their 1st round match a few weeks earlier. Kian out bowled Ashlyn to triumph in a fine sporting display from both of them.

Glenn 21 def John Mueller 10 (Mt Pleasant)
Joondalup are super proud of you and look forward to seeing you progress over the next few years.
Greetings fellow members.
Opening day has been and gone. It was a great day attended by 70 members. So uniforms are required now on club days Tuesday (Ladies), Thursday (Men)and Saturday (mixed).
The Presentation evening was held last Friday night and was also a huge success. We had 112 attendees. Would have to be the largest for many years. It is obvious that following our earlier shut down due to the pandemic we all want to get out and about again. Special guests included Mark Folkard MLA who is our Patron and Sponsor, The Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob plus Joondalup City councillors Kerry Hollywood and Ton McLean. Of course your committee members exerted some gentle pressure in relation to funding some improvements around the Bowling Club and the JSA. Only time will tell if the seeds sown will bear any fruit. Other special guests were some of our sponsors Dave and Sandy from Smartline Finance, Ken and Lola from Align Dental, Helen McGuiness from Simplicity Funerals and Andrew and James from Freestyle Bathrooms. Music was provided by Gerard Sandosham and he was brilliant. A huge thanks to Greg Barry our MC for the night.
Nancy Sutton was the very worthy recipient of the Dennis Owen Club Person of the Year Award for 2019/2020.
Community open day was held at the club this morning (Sunday). We had around 20+ men women and children show up to try bowls. Signed up a couple that normally play corporate bowls and sent them all away happy and with a sausage in a bun.
The under 15 Junior singles final was played this morning and some very good skills shown by our junior brigade. Congratulations to Kian Mayne who defeated Ashlyn Roemermann in a high quality game watched by some very proud parents and friends. Thanks to James Groves from Freestyle Bathrooms who sponsored the event and presented the trophies. Well done to Nancy Sutton and Mark Roemermann (Coach) who have been running our junior program with great success.
As some of you already know Colin Shier has decided to step down from his position of Club Captain. Colin has spent the last 5+ years as Chairman of Selectors and Club Captain and through his efforts has assisted our men’s teams to 4 promotions this year . He has also served as JSA delegate, computer guru and completing many other tasks as well as (in his spare time) being a very good bowler. Thanks very much for your past efforts Colin.
Andrew Groves has agreed to take on the role as Club Captain (Men) and was presented with the keys to the executive washroom yesterday. Congratulations Andrew. Please give Andrew as much support as you can. He is looking for a couple more men to come to the Match committee. Barb Lord Club Captain (Ladies) is also looking for more support so ladies please step forward to give Barb a hand especially as it is her first year in the role.
Finally, Next Saturday the Men’s 4th Division playoff at home against Mt Lawley for a promotion to 3rd Division. As this game is a pennant final social bowls or roll-ups will be held Saturday morning between 10am and 1pm (Names in by 9.30 for a 10 am start) . You can roll up again after 4.30 and have the lights on till 7.30 if you wish (just remember to turn them off). The Guys would love to have your vocal support in the afternoon.
In breaking news Glen Oakley won the State Novice Champion of Champions played at Morley today 22-10. Congratulations Glen I believe that’s a first for our club.
In further breaking news Gordon Plenderleith defeated Mark Ryan in the final of the Club scroungers competition held this afternoon in a hard fought event. Congratulations to you

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 $950.00 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
