Scores continued to reflect the closeness of the  players and by the 6th end Ian was just ahead 6 shots to Curley’s 5. By  the 14th end Ian had extended his lead to be 14 shots to 8. The next 6  ends saw limited scoring and by the 20th end Ian was ahead 19 shots to  Curley’s 10 shots. This pattern continued and by end 27 Ian was 24 shots  to Curley’s 14 shots. On the 28th end Curley was holding 2 shots with  Ian having one bowl to play. Ian picked up the jack and moved it in close  proximity of another of his bowls. End result Ian Chatterton 26 shots to  Curley Petersen’s 14 shots in a terrific display of tight competition bowls.  Well done to both players.  MEN’S SINGLES FINAL  Ian Chatterton v Jim Wiedman  The Men’s Singles Final of the 2018 Club Championship was played  between Ian Chatterton and Jim Wiedman. Both players brought great  form into the contest after some terrific matches to make it into the final.  Ian was slightly ahead 5 shots to Jim’s 3 shots by end 4. The intensity  and closeness continued with Ian remaining ahead 9 shots to Jim’s 7  shots by end 9. On end 11 Ian was still just ahead 12 shots to Jim’s 10.  Despite Jim’s best efforts Ian’s consistency was proving it’s worth with  the next 6 ends going to Ian. The score wasn’t a true indicator of the  great contest with Ian winning 25 shots to Jim’s 10. Congratulations Ian  on a great win and well done Jim for your gallant efforts. Thanks to Roy  Gesch for marking the game.

It was terrific to see locals Luke, Dave, Mick, Peter, Lilly and Gail enjoying their first lawn bowls experience having noticed we were open on  Saturday afternoon and coming in and asking to have a roll. Bar  volunteer Judith was delighted to welcome the new bowlers on the  green with club member Gary Darcy obliging by setting up a rink and  offering instructions on how to play.  They all showed they had the skill to play, some being more competitive  than the others, but just as important was the laughter and enjoyment  coming from the rink. A fun time was had by all and we look forward to  seeing them again on Wednesday Twilight Bowls or next Saturday  afternoon from 2:30pm where new bowlers are always welcome.

Tuesday 12 June 2018 was a day where luck was to play a major part for any real win. Some thought it could never happen. Some say they never  have enough luck, others think it’s a myth. But no, who should we see  have a change in fortunes and have some luck, you may have guessed it  , no not Joe Walters but as some might say that lucky John Kapetanic.  Relma Godfrey and John played the correct amount of good and bad  shots to have the exact margin as required plus 6 to win $200 in the  lucky jackpot. That is absolute skill mixed with correct amount of luck  and not often achieved. Congratulations to Relma and John on your  winnings and see you both back next week to repeat the performance.

What an outstanding first half the year for our club. So much has been achieved by so many for the betterment of all at the club. To give for the  good of all members can never be overstated.   I take this time to acknowledge those who have passed. They will be  missed but never forgotten. Always a valued member of the MBC family  they will be.   As we just complete the end of financial year I would like to report to all  the members on our strong financial position and continued forward  thinking plans and governance that will certainly future proof our club for  many years to come.   It is great to be cash positive as well as having made so many  improvements. As a board we have promised and delivered on being  very open in all our areas of governance and I thank each of my board  members for their robust debate in achieving this aim for our members.  Thus making the club the place it is for all where every opinion is valued  and all people welcome.   We as a board have worked hard at making the club the place you would  all want it to be. We thank you for your support and continued  contribution both on the green or in the clubhouse.  The board has signed off on all the acquittal for our bar redevelopment  and the grants won to assist in this wonderful development for all of our  community. This wonderful facility sets us apart as a venue now and one  we can all be proud of as a member.  The feature of our club that pleases me as Chairman most is the  development of our volunteer skill set. We are now a truly self managing  group capable of running this small business very efficiently with a truly  viable future. A real achievement for bowls clubs as we look around in

8 Bunya Street, Maleny, 4552

the current climate.   No club can remain viable without a wonderful set of volunteers and we  at MBC are no exception. To all who give in any way a big thank you for  your contribution in so many ways at the club.   As a club the culture of being the best we can within our budget guided  by good governance depicted by clarity of purpose and open  communication has enabled this position for us at MBC.   To all members we as a board appreciate your support and input and I  make the promise that you communicate any concerns in writing and we  will acknowledge such contributions to the good governance of the club.  What we have all achieved and continue to do with such a small but  vibrant group is something we can all be proud of in meeting our own  commitments as well as those with our fellow hinterland bowls clubs  .That is what makes us number one for so many.  Thank you all for being who you are as it is those differences, strengths  and weaknesses that makes our club such a great community facility  used by so many. MBC members....a big well done, onward and upward.  Keep rolling up.  Graeme Glover  Chairman Maleny Bowls Club

Since the re-introduction of keg beer 4 weeks ago we have finished our  first full keg of XXXX Gold.

As well as proving very popular  keg beer has seen a huge 63%  reduction in refuse (empty stubby  beers) as well as savings for our  volunteer bar staff in stocking fridges  and carting refuse to the bins.
