The Edgewater Trophy, as normal, on Monday evening
Excellent TV viewing this weekend Trans Tasman 4-6 June Blackjacks and Parajacks v Australia. Access how to get it through Bowls NZ Website (Sorry I have to access wifi at the Lincoln Library at the moment so I cant send out group emails to let you know more) Hopefully you will get to watch Pam Walker who is making her debut in the Parajacks.

Newsletter and Notices
In the newsletter for June sent out early there was a separate attachment for the presidents report. There was a further newsletter available at June Newsletter and subsequent Notices
Not sure how many people read the presidents report attachment however there were less than 50% of the newsletters sent out that people clicked on the link and read.
From now on I will copy all my subsequent emails into the current months newsletter in case you miss something.

Bowls Poem

forwarded by Alison Hebbard

1 THINK 1' T L PACK MY BOWLS

AND FIND SOME OTHER GAME TO PLAY.

I'LL TAKE UP DRAUGHTS OR DOMINOES ' COS IT'S TRAGIC MY POOR BOWL GOES.

V!HEN ENDS ARE SHORT, T PLAY THEM LONG,

          MY FINGERS MADE     GRIP" QUITE WRONG:

WHEN ENDS ARE LONG, I'M NEVER UP

MY "FOLLOW THROUGH" HAS GONE TO POT.

"PLEASE, TAKE THE GRASS" THE CAPTAIN WILL SAY HE'S REALLY SIGHING QUITE A LOT TODAY,

HE THEN EXPLODES AND BLOWS HTS TOP,

MY "SKINNY" BOWL HAS TAKENOUR SHOT'. THE CAPTAIN CRIES "COME 'ROUND THE BACK T WANT ONE HERE BEHIND THE JACK," INSTEAD OF THAT MY BOWL ARRIVES RIGHT

DEAD IN FRONT TO STOP HIS DRIVES!

HOLDING FOUR, JUST DRAW ANOTHER

T 'D RATHER YOU BE SHORT THAN OVER." BUT OH MY GOD, WHAT HAVE 1 DONE'.

          T 'VE PUSHED THEM TN TO GIVE THEM    ONE!

THIS GAME FRUSTRATES ME, IT DRIVES ME MAD!

WHY , OH WHY - HAVE 1 PLAYED SO BAD'. 1 THINK I'VE HAD "BOWLS" FOR THE SEASON FOR 1 REALLY CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE REASON I'VE HARDLY DRAWN A SHOT TODAY,

THE MORE 1 TRY - THE MORE I'M ASTRAY'.

HEY BOWLS 1 S A FUNNY GAME THEY SAY, MY ONLY GOOD "SHOT" HAS WON THE DAY.

WITH A BIT OF A WOBBLE AND A COUPLE OF WICKS

             I'VE TAKEN THE "SHOT BOWL" OUT   FOR six:
