Awards Night Champions Week Club of the Year


BOWLS SA

President's Message

T

he 2015-2016 season finished with Champions Week being held at Murray Bridge Bowling Club and those who attended were high in their praise of the Club and their preparations before and during the event. Well done Murray Bridge! The annual Bowls SA Awards Night held on Friday 6 May proved to be very popular and it was great to see so many members sharing in the celebrations to recognise not only the Champions, but also our volunteers who are the heartbeat of our organisation. Congratulations to all the pennant winners, winners of championship events and finalist and winners of Bowls SA Award categories that were recognised at the Awards Night.

Many Bowlers now head north but the work of Bowls SA continues with planning for next season; part of which is working with the Region Councillors to develop some refinements to the administration and delivery of information to Bowlers. When agreement is reached information sessions will be held to better inform members of the proposal. In the next few months there will be some changes in the staffing of the Bowls SA office and we wish them all well and thank them for their efforts towards furthering of our sport. Finally, I would like to thank all those volunteers who make themselves available to serve on committees, or who take positions of responsibility in the various competitions held throughout the season. I wish you all a good winter break and look forward to meeting you next season.

CEO Report

ver the years, sporting organisations and volunteers have formed the backbone of Sport in South Australia. We must build on this legacy to enrich our lives both as active participants and as an organisation which values vibrant, local community identities and the achievements of our sporting heroes. Sport and recreation also have other benefits for the State both economic in terms of sports tourism, employment opportunities through growth in the sector, and social in terms of better physical and mental health and wellbeing. Sport also has a special part to play in combatting the problems of drug abuse, crime and social exclusion, particularly among young people living in areas of social and economic disadvantage. The development of high performance in sport is another key element within the overall national sports strategy. Top performances in the sporting arena, both nationally and internationally, based on a drugs-free philosophy of sport, provide positive role models as well as enhancing our sense of national achievement, and the image of our Sport overseas. Bowls SA’s goal, therefore, is to increase participation and interest in the sport, to improve standards of performance and to develop sports facilities at national, regional and local level, thereby contributing to healthier lifestyles and an improved overall quality of life. This can be achieved

through an Operational policy and resource framework in partnership with its stakeholders, other Government Departments and the local, State and National Governing Bodies of Sport as a whole. As we now begin preparations for another season, it is timely that we celebrate our achievements from the season that has passed. At the Bowls SA Awards Night held at Morphettville, the Sport recognised many who have contributed to making our Sport great. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all of the finalists and winners recognised at the Awards Night and in particular make a special mention of Life Membership inductees Ann Kennedy and Nola Byass. Ann is a well-rounded, lifetime achiever in the sport as a leader and volunteer, whereas Nola is a long term employee having recorded over 27 years of service.

Our thanks to Errol for donating these to Bowls SA. I’m sure we all appreciate his generosity and the opportunity to retain them for future generations.

Media Partners Bowls SA has a number of key media partners who have demonstrated responsible, well-researched coverage that provided a detailed insight into the community value of lawn bowls to the people of South Australia in both

Phil Smyth, host of the Channel 44 SA Sports Show, Rob Greenwood, Sports Editor with Messenger Newspapers, John Glistak writer for The Plains Producer and John Bevin who has been a long standing contributor to the SA Bowler magazine and provided weekly ‘Around the Greens’ website updates on the metropolitan pennant competition. Each one of these individuals have contributed to the advancement of Lawn Bowls in South Australia through their media involvement and Bowls SA appreciates and acknowledges their support. John Bevin has announced he will be scaling back his involvement to concentrate on writing two books. We sincerely thank him for his dedication to the sport and wish him every success.

Life Membership

L

ife Membership of Bowls SA may be conferred, by the Board of Bowls SA, on any member or individual who has rendered distinguished and outstanding service to Bowls SA and has demonstrated significant, sustained and high quality involvement enhancing the reputation and future of Bowls within South Australia. To be considered for Life Membership, important factors taken into account are: • the general attitude and overall demeanour of the member or individual; • dedication to the values of Bowls SA; • commitment to the principles of good sportsmanship; • valued leadership and good role modelling that reflects credit upon Bowls SA; • the member or individual has contributed 25 years or more of service to Bowls SA as a member of the Bowls SA Board, State Consultative Body, a Bowls SA adopted Committee or any combination thereof; or the member has represented SA in at least 300 games as a player. Ann Kennedy was awarded with the following citation: “Ann Kennedy has had a long association with Bowls in South Australia, commencing at Marion Bowling Club in 1973. She transferred to Holdfast Bay where she has served as President, a member of the Administrative Committee and various committees including the often challenging Selection Committee. Over the years Ann has recorded multiple wins on the green at Club, State and Masters levels and represented the State on three occasions. In 1997 Ann was elected as an Executive Member of the SA Women’s Bowling Association and put her volunteering skills to great use on the Match & Tournament, Selection and SA Bowler committees and in 2001 was Chair of the Hospitality Committee for the National Championships held in Adelaide. Ultimately holding the positions of Senior Vice President and President of SAWBA; following the merger of the Royal SA Bowling Association and SA Women’s Bowling Association to form Bowls SA in 2003, Ann remained on the Board of Bowls SA in the capacity of Vice President until September 2007. Ann has continued to stay involved on committees; her expertise in tournament draws, managing State events, proofreading and many other areas of the sport is exceptional and as an organisation we would certainly have been lost without her help over the years. 8 | SA BOWLER | June 2016

In bestowing Life Membership on Ann Kennedy, the Board of Bowls SA acknowledges Ann’s valuable contribution to the governance, leadership and administration of the sport and the assistance that she has provided to the office in volunteering her time so willingly. A very knowledgeable and fair lady who has always worked for the betterment of Bowls in South Australia.” Nola Byass The following is an excerpt of the citation by CEO Mark Easton: “In 1989 when Nola joined the SAWBA as the sole paid employee, the administration was run by volunteers who assisted the President and Honorary Secretary. Nola was supplied with a phone, an electric typewriter and a small black and white photocopier. SAWBA had also won a small Mac computer which nobody knew how to use and so Nola was employed as a ‘computer literate’ person. In 1997 she became Executive Officer of SAWBA and at the time of the merger of SAWBA and RSABA in September 1, 2003 Nola took up the position of Administration Manager of the newly formed Bowls SA. It is the position that she holds to this day. Over her time at Bowls she has worked for thirteen SAWBA and Bowls SA Presidents, two Honorary Secretaries and four General Managers and the journey has seen changes aplenty in all areas. Nola has witnessed the sport evolve from its traditional image with strict dress code to where it is today. In her 27 years of service, there have also been big changes in the way that the sport needs to be governed with strong emphasis on strategic plans, constitutions, financial management, grant funding etc. Her induction has been a well-kept secret and knowing her as a person, friend and colleague she would receive this honour with shyness and reluctance.” As Editor of the SA Bowler it is well outside of my comfort zone to include a report on myself. It has however, been a great honour to be acknowledged with Life Membership, especially at the same time as Ann Kennedy, and I take this opportunity on behalf of Ann and myself to thank everyone for their congratulations, support and kindness.


BOWLS SA

State Night Owls Final

After a successful 2015/16 Night Owls season the Regional finals were held over March and April across the State. As a result 24 teams from seven Regions qualified to compete in the State Night Owls Final.

The Test Eagles from Adelaide Bowling Club came through unbeaten to take out the title of State Night Owls Champions with The Falcons from Lockleys Bowling Club runners-up.

Third place went to Trying Harder from Victor Harbor over Norfolk Inn Chance by 3 shots. Well done to all competitors and congratulations to Jakub, Sini, Ben and Tex from the Test Eagles. Our thanks go to West End for their continued sponsorship of the event.

Australian Bowling Arm Team New Zealand Tour

D

uring May 2016 an Australian Bowling Arm Team toured New Zealand. The team of 20 was self-funded and chosen from interested members of the State Teams competing at the National Championships last September. The Tour was supported by Bowls New Zealand and comprised a loop of the

North Island with matches at Pukekohe, Mount Maunganui, Hastings, Taupo, Hamilton and Browns Bay.

at Mount Maunganui with flags flying, national anthems and a speech by Bowls NZ President Mike Spring.

The purpose of the tour was to promote the use of Bowling Arms as a way to keep elderly bowlers in the sport and to generate interest in further TransTasman competitions.

Being drawn from a pool of over 10,000 Bowling Arm bowlers in Australia the Aussies proved too strong for most of the NZ clubs who, although they were able bodied teams, were only drawn from their 100-200 club members.

An official ceremony was conducted

In the final match, however, the Browns Bay team drew its players from several surrounding clubs and finally managed to beat the Aussies 3 rinks to 2. Everyone on the Australian Team was full of praise for how well the tour ran and how welcome they felt in NZ with every NZ club confirming that they would be happy to do it again. Final Score: Australia: 5 matches New Zealand: 1 match A successful tour by every measure.

Bowls SA Board Director, Sandra Wallace announced Diane Milner as the 2015-2016 winner and last year’s Official of the Year, Joan Prosser, presented the trophy.

Under 18 Players of the Year Determining the Boys’ and Girls’ Under 18 Player of the Year is based on two things; points allocated per test for the players at the Under 18 National Championships and the Under 18 SA v VIC Series, as well as their performance at the Under 18 State Championships.

The 2016 Under 18 State Championships were held at Salisbury Bowling Club from Sunday 17 to Wednesday 20 April and throughout the event participants had a great team spirit and friendly rivalry.

School Lawn Bowls Championships 2016

T

he annual School Lawn Bowls Championships for 2016 was held at the Modbury Bowling Club, on Friday 8 April and Monday 11 April.

The Championships showcased great natural talent from students and credit goes to the coaches and teachers. The Primary School Championships started the two day event on the Friday with a few light showers. In the Triples, returning for another year were students from Tanunda Primary and Ardrossan Area Schools, who played off for the Gold medal; Tanunda claiming the Gold, Ardrossan the Silver and Investigator College taking out the Bronze. Sectional play decided the Girl’s Singles medal winners with the Gold medal going to Kate Argent-Bowden from Angaston Primary School, Silver to Kyra Williams (Goolwa Primary School) and Bronze to Isabelle Nicolai from Immanuel Lutheran Primary School. After competing last year in the Triples and winning the Gold medal, Archer Rowntree from Ardrossan Area School qualified for the Boy’s Singles Gold medal match and played against last year’s Gold medal winner Nathan Black from St James Primary School. With both Archer and Nathan previously winning Gold, both boys were out to win again. In the friendly match Archer Rowntree came out with the Gold medal and Nathan Black with the Silver, while Charlie Hicks from North Haven Primary School earned the Bronze medal after a fantastic game.

On Monday the High School students events took place and Sectional play set the standard for the finals, with some great natural technique on the green in both the Triples and Singles games. In the Open Singles, Josh Studham from Balaklava High School and Gerrin Jenke from Loxton High School battled it out for Gold and Silver. Claiming the Gold medal was Josh and Silver Gerrin. Loxton High School showed their strength with Jacob Taylor also claiming a Bronze medal for the Singles. The Triples match saw two of the Mount Compass Area School teams fight it out for the Gold medal. With great focus and dedication throughout the game, winning Gold in the Triples were the “Blakey’s” and Silver went to “Team Bad”. A very strong year for Mount Compass Area School, well done. Travelling for over five hours to compete Grant High School took out the Bronze medal; a fantastic effort and show of support by Grant High School. A big Thank you to Modbury Bowling Club for the use of their fantastic facilities and greens, the volunteers in the kitchen, as well as the numerous markers who assisted on the day.

You Be the Umpire During play a Third, after delivering his first bowl, discovers that his Second has only played one bowl. What should be done? The Lead in team A places the mat, delivers the jack and plays their first bowl. The Lead in team B then realises that team B should have started the end. What should happen? The first end in a singles game is tied. Player A claims that they are going to play the first end again and that they should toss to see who should play first. Player B disagrees and calls the Umpire. Who is correct? On the change-over in a pairs match, the player of Team B delivered a bowl before the player of Team A, which had won the previous end. It went un-noticed until the player of Team A prepared to bowl. The bowl from the member of team B had disturbed the head. What should happen? Team A holds three shots in a triples match and both Skips still have to play their last bowl. A sudden down-pour forces the Controlling Body to take all players from the green. When play is resumed Skip A goes to the mat and prepares to play his last bowl. Skip B objects and wants the end replayed. What is the decision? Answers on page 36

VALE Vic Brown OAM Victor John Brown OAM 24 March 1936 - 28 May 2016 Born in Ardrossan into a pioneer family, his grandfather, John R Brown was a Foundation Member and the First Life Member of the Ardrossan Bowling Club. A farmer and grazier on a property 10 km south of Ardrossan, Vic began bowling in 1976 and held most executive positions in the Ardrossan Bowling Club including two years as President and five years as Treasurer. He also held the offices of Yorke Peninsula Association President, Chairman of the Yorke Peninsula Division, Country Vice President and State Vice President. Elected as State President of the Royal South Australian Bowling Association for 2001-2002 and 2002-2003, it was during this time that the RSABA and SA Women’s Bowling Association came together to negotiate the eventual merger of the Associations in September 2003. A keen bowler, he won six Men’s Singles Championships, five Men’s Pairs Championships and three Mixed Pairs with his very supporting wife, Meg; along with wins in the Handicap Singles and the Club Open Championships. Involvement in many Ardrossan and Yorke Peninsula clubs and organisations resulted in Vic being awarded the Order of Australia Medal in 1990, an Australian Sports Medal in 2000, and being honoured with Life Membership of Bowls SA and the Ardrossan Bowling Club as acknowledgement of his huge contribution to the sport. Vic remained active in the Bowls Past Presidents Association, holding the position of Vice President and President and in 2004 he was a member of the South Australian Four that won the National Title at the Australian Carnival in Adelaide. He was also a member of the Four who won the State Fours at the South Australian Past Presidents Association Friendly Games in 2011. Admired for his fair-minded and good-natured attitude to life, Vic will be very much missed. Our thoughts are with his wife Meg and their family.

As a bowl has been played by each team before the players discover that the Second has failed to play in the proper order, that player loses the right to play the bowl. Law 29.4.2 Team B should re-start the end. Law 9.5 Player B. The end is a completed end. Law 24.2 and Law 24.4 Skip A must choose whether to leave the disturbed head as it is and have their team play two bowls one after the other to get back to the proper order of play. Law 29.1.3.1 OR replace the head in its former position, return the bowl and go back to the proper order of play Law 29.1.3.2 OR declare the end dead. Law 29.1.3.3 Skip B is correct. If an end has started but all the required bowls have not been played, it must be declared dead. Law 32.2 32 | SA BOWLER | June 2016
