Isis bowls and golf information



AS THE wet weather stopped all bowls last week, there are no results from Tuesday through to Sunday. First time I have known that to happen going back for many years, so much for the long dry summer which was forecast a few months ago. There is a reminder for the lady bowlers which is as follows: Nominations are now open for Championship Pairs and will close and be drawn after bowls on Thursday, February 4. First round will be played on February 11. Ladies, the sheet for your nominations is on the notice board so please get your teams together. All games are play, sub or forfeit. Weather permitting a team of four men will be playing in a presidents day at the Isis Central Mill B.C. this coming Sunday. 1pm start for the game. Still to be confirmed there is a planned visit by the following club to play Isis B.C. Wide Bay & District Veterans Bowls Club proposed visit Sunday, February 14. Last I heard they are having lunch at the Isis Club before the game. We will need as many players as we can get to fill the green up. Should be a great day. Names in the book please.

A reminder: to be eligible to win a monthly medal, members must be financial.


On a rain-threatening day enough members arrived to compete in the single stroke event in preparation for next week's first Monthly Medal for the year.

Roger Draper recorded nett 67 to win easily from Peter Hutton on 70, 2nd on a countback from Michael Stanton. Rundowns went to Ray Walker and Terry Smallman, both on 72.

Bob Champney (0.95m) won the B Division approach on 1&10, with Leigh Cronin (0.9m) claiming the A Division pinshot on 4&13 and visitor Don O'Garey (8.5m) the B Division pinshot.

Next week members play for the February Monthly Medal and are requested to bring a plate as usual. See you there for the 12.30 hit-off.


On the first day of Thursday single stableford competition, Robyn played within her handicap to win with 37 points from Vicki McAulay on 35 points.

Rundowns went to Diane Rowley and Joy Cartner. Robyn (0.99m) also won the approach.

In the Saturday single stroke competition, Sophie Martell's excellent back nine saw her record 73 nett to win from Robyn Robinson on 75. Robyn (0.19m) also won the approach shot on 6&15.

Next Thursday and Saturday, members play for the Monthly Medal as recently re-designed. We wish all members well in either or both competitions.

Nominations for Women's Country Week open on February 18.


The humid conditions made play both uncomfortable and difficult for most members playing a single stableford competition. However some still managed to score well, with Terry Smallman scoring best, winning A Division with 38 points from Cynthia Draper on 36, with Robyn Robinson 3rd on 35 points on a countback from Dave Robinson - good for family harmony!

In B Division Coralie Volgyesi won with 36 points from Rusty Usmar with 30 points, 2nd on a countback from Ray Burrowes who came 3rd.

Kev Savage won the Men's approach (0.075m) on 110; the Combined approach (0.08m) on 413; while Cynthia Draper (1.12m) won the Ladies' approach on 615.

Craig Reynolds and Ray Walker (32 nett) led the Chook Run winners, followed by Ray Burrowes, Terry Smallman and Dave Robinson (33) on spins from unlucky others.

Next week we play a 4 bbb stableford - organise a partner and be ready for hit-off at noon. See you there.


Sunday, January 31 greeted 15 players to a rain free but overcast game of Stableford on the front nine. With wet fairways and slow greens a couple of players managed to come in with reasonable scores.

The winner for the day was Michael Stanton who came in with 21 and loses 2.4 from his handicap. Second place went to Domonic Mete with 20, loosing 2 from his handicap. In third place Diane Rowley with 17 and loosing .5. The combined longest drive went to Dave Durie who also took out the centre fairway shot, which were both nice drives. The combined nearest the pin on the 6th was won by Michael Stanton. All other pin and approach shots were wipes.

Next Sunday morning the monthly mug will be held which will be played over 18 holes. If you don't think you will be able to walk the 18 holes, please let the captain know and he will endeavour to put you into a cart with someone. Tee off time will be 7.30, followed by a light meal. As always new members and visitors are welcome.
