Captain’s Corner

Men who Mounted,

Roll up, Roll up everyone’s a winner!

Its always a special time when all teams come home with a win on a Saturday afternoon and what a feeling to belt the song out loud and proud.

At this stage of the season these points are crucial for solidifying ladder positions and keeping all teams in the hunt for finals.

Current Division standings are;

Saturday Pennants;

Division 1 – 1st

Division 2 – 4th

Division 4 – 4th

Division 6 – 1st

Thursday Pennants;

Division 2 – 1st

Division 3 – 8th (only 1 game off 3rd)

Division 4 – equal last ( we’ll fight and fight and win…)

That’s 3 of our 7 teams in 1st place and another 2/3 with a chance for finals.

Now is the time to bring out your best bowls in pennants. Play for your rink, your team and the club!

Remember: No bowls this Saturday!

In other news;

State Singles: Sectional play has been completed and the Mounters received an ‘A’ after seeing 4 of our 11 representatives winning their section. A fine achievement.

The news from there is not as good with both Mark Masel and Kyle ‘Blossom’ Cornell falling just short in the follow on games. Obviously Bowls WA is sick and tired of the Mounters overachieving and have pitted our other two qualifiers, Paul Sinden and John Fielding against each other in the next round. Well done to all players and hope to see some of you down at Bassendean next Saturday as we are guaranteed to see a Mounter progressing to the next round…..

Club Triples: The semi-final and final of the Club Trip’s and plate finals are on this Wednesday night from 6pm ( Players to be there at 5.30pm). Come down and lend your support.

Over 60’s State Pairs: Congratulations to Mounter Mick Palumbo who has progressed to the knock out stage to be held tomorrow at Osbourne Park. Mick is playing with ex Mounter Marcus Mertz and we wish them all the best.

Australia Day – Please let me know by return email if you would be interested in a Cash pairs event. If we have enough interest I will get a sheet up at the club and arrange some games early afternoon.
