SHOWCASING OUR LOCAL HEROES
THIS week the A grade was away to
Greenock in a clash for the top of the
ladder. David won the toss and elected
The Lions got off to what could only
be described as a disastrous start.
We lost Piggy in the second over
then Macca in the third and it didn't
finish there. Impy, Alain, Nick and Trez
fell one after the other we were in deep
trouble at the drinks break when the
scorecard read 6/30.
Greenock must have been thinking
Christmas had come early.
While all that was going on Gobby
and Whitey were slowly building a
partnership ticking over the runs they
got the score to 6/98 at tea, putting on
After tea Gobby started to open up
the shoulders. He was seeing them
like 'beach balls'. Whitey also picked
up the tempo but came unstuck.
Gobby needed another 16 runs to
make his ton, hoping he would not run
out of partners. Kristian joined Gobby
out in the middle and gave great
support, Gobby notched up his first
100 for himself and the club, a great
captain's knock. Gobby fell soon after
and was out 111 and not long after the
innings closed and we had posted a
competitive score, 212.
A special congratulations for David
Golder on his first 100. David has been
around the club for about 11 years as a
junior and now A grade captain. It is
great to see David enjoy his cricket
and getting the rewards for all his hard
work. Well done David.
The B grade after a great effort trying
to get the water off the pitch were
defeated by another downpour. The
day's play abandoned to the rain.
The under 16s won the toss and
elected to bat.
We got off to a quick start with
Lachlan Hewett and Tr a e McArthur
seeing off the new ball and putting
together a 39-run opening stand
before Tr a e was out for 17.
A mini-collapse followed to see us at
a precarious 4/49 before a great
partnership of 67 between Jordan
Dare and Anthony Simpson saw the
score to 6 /137. Jordan eventually fell
for a handy 31 and Anthony a valuable
At the end of the allotted 40 overs we
finished at 8/150 which should be a
The under 14s after some hard
sweeping off of overnight rains by the
Central lads were able to get a start.
Tyson who has not lost a toss yet as
captain again won and used this to our
advantage on the wet deck and sent
Gawler Central Black into bat.
After some very wise words of
wisdom recently from club coach Dave
Smith the captains tried some very
inventive bowling changes that
enabled South to keep the home side
to 1/25 after 10. The lads really
enjoyed and learnt a lot from Dave's
words and are certainly better for the
experience already. The day was
called off after 10 overs due to rain so
we now go into next week finishing the
match with 25 overs each.
Unfortunately there were 10 extras in
the score of 25 that we need to work
on next week to keep them to a
minimum which should help to set us
up for a positive result. That's 35 push
ups at training this week lads.
The under 12s played Kapunda at
Kapunda High School.
THE weather continues to interrupt our
season with most of the juniors
getting a day in, but none of our senior
teams were able to make a start.
The women's Gold team had a bye.
The women's Black team played
Smithfield at Smithfield Oval.
Bowling first we had Smithfield 5/92 at
the end of their 24 overs. Hayley
Dissinger picked up 2/20 from her four
overs and Brook and Kelly Wenham got
one wicket each.
Under 12 Black played Tanunda at
Princes Park in wild and woolly
Managed to get a full game in making
8/99. Paul Searle did a good job getting
29no and Chloe Scheer 11. Tanunda in
reply were 4/82 with Chloe Scheer 1/9
from two overs and Hayley Dissenger
1/7 while Brendan Taylor did very well in
Under 12 Gold played Angaston at
Willaston after moving from Princes
Ben's lads started off very well with
three wickets in a short space of time,
with Angaston finishing 5/123, with
Brandon Acton and Ben Clark getting
two wickets each,and Thomas Skuse
also got a wicket. We were 7/31 in reply.
Under 14 Black were playing Gawler
South at the dog track.
Some issues with the program saw
Hutt's team and the two Under 12s
teams all booked in at home.
However the match was washed out
after 10 overs with the score 1/25 after
South had won the toss and put us in to
Under 14 Gold played Tanunda at the
Tanunda Recreation Centre. Goodie's
team won the toss and decided to bat
in very windy conditions and with a few
breaks due to the rain the lads put in a
very good effort to be all out for 195.
Was an even contribution with Matt
Stewart (38), Josh Neilson (36), Matt
Good (34), Adrian Connelly (22), Jonah
Grindlay (18) and Kane Elliot (10).
Under 16s played Light Pass at
Stockwell Oval. With the weather it was
lucky to get 40 overs in on a good pitch.
Light Pass won the toss and elected to
bat on a wet and windy morning. Light
Pass were 6/138 at the end of 40 overs.
Fielding was good despite the trying
conditions, and best of the bowlers
were To m Mercer with 2/17, Blake Thom
2/23, with Joel Chapman and Matt
Knight picking up one each.
Don't forget the Gawler Central Cup is
on this Saturday night. Teas will begin
from 6.30pm, with the fun and
excitement of 'Crabs' race calls to begin
from about 7.30pm. Sure to be a
entertaining family evening.

Last week the ladies travelled to
Kapunda and met tough opposition
going down 73-76 with two teams up
and two down. Marg Nietschke and
Judy Milde were five shots and one
shot up respectively, while Betty
Marshall and Doreen Twartz were one
shot and eight shots down. The winner
of the Wohlers voucher was Lurline
Our midweek men played Nuriootpa
Green at Nuriootpa and unfortunately
went down 37-54. Felix Schmidt gave
his opposition a shakeup, however
went down by five, Brett Warner and
Ron Hams both struggled by going
down 14 and 18 shots respectively.
The night bowlers were lucky to have
a reasonably good night for bowls con-
sidering the 'catastrophic' weather late-
l y. Joy Pfitzner won the Point Pass
Hotel voucher and Pam Dutschke won
the Legacy Christmas puddings.
Last Saturday the pennant bowlers
played in atrocious conditions. Our
senior long-time bowlers Gordon
Zerner and Ralph Carter said "that in
all their years of bowling they have
never played in weather as bad as
this". The wind (90kph at times) was
so strong that the bowling mats were
sent flying, and delivered bowls were
travelling straight and against the bias,
and weaving all over the place. What is
worse than a slap in the face with a
wet jellyfish? A wet flying bowls mat.
Division One, considering the atro-
cious conditions, had a fantastic win
against Freeling 103-74 with three
teams up and one down. Greg Prior
fought valiantly to be only four shots
down, Brett Warner was up by 8 shots
and Jeff Hann's team finished in the
rain and were one up and came into
the clubhouse like 'drowned rats'.
Geoff Schmidt's team had an excellent
day winning by 26 shots and conse-
quently his team of Preston Eva, Peter
Voigt and Tim Taplin won the Jakelco
team of the week. Also Schmidty's out-
standing bowling earned him the
Division Tw o travelled to Nuriootpa and
were the victors against Nuriootpa
Black 67-49 with two teams up and
one down. The weather was shocking
down there too with the strong winds
sending tree branches flying across
the green and even the galahs were
flying backwards. Steve Turner was up
by a fantastic 16 shots and his lead
Roy Regnier bowled superbly by trail-
ing the jack nine times and narrowly
missing the jack four times during the
match-well done. Roy Fiegert played
well and was up by five shots, and
unfortunately Jeff Willoughby was
down by three shots.
Division Three Red played Kapunda
Red at home and won by the narrow
margin of one shot, 68-67. Bob
Leditschke saved the day by winning
by an excellent 18 shots which was
enough to carry Deadra Leditschke
and Betty Marshall.
Division Three White played Kapunda
Black on their home turf and suc-
cumbed 66-73 with Ronnie Schultz's
team being eight shots up and the
bright light of the side, while unfortu-
nately Ron Milde and GG were down
by seven and eight shots respectively.

sausage sizzle and thanks are extend-

in making this series such a success.
With this week's bowls report the word
success is very limited.
The ladies hosted Nuriootpa playing
on a perfect green but failed to register
a winning rink, going down 52-91.
Gaye McLeod 7-27 to Mitzi Elix,
Margaret Magee 15-24 to Denise

Mens midweek pennants had both
teams a w ay, the Blues at Nuriootpa
and the Golds at Angaston.
The Blues with one rink up went down
overall 57-70. Graham Reeves 15-28
to Russell Walker. Bob Howell 18-20 to
Rob Chapman and Milton Launer up
24-22 to David Wilson.
The Golds had a much better day with
all rinks up for an overall win 61-39.
Bill Day 21-16 over Keith Sandford.
Billy Boyle 20-13 over To n y Edwards
and Glyn Ayres 20-10 over Fred
Thomas. That was the first and last
success story for this week.
Division Three and Division One trav-
elled to Angaston on a very windy, wet
and quite miserable d ay. Conditions
had their games abandoned several
ends short of the regular 25.
Division Three went down 54-55. Gaye
McLeod 10-27. Phil Handke 19-17 and
Ernie Palmer, Bill McLeod, John
Emmerson and Lance Lange 25-11 up
to take out the rink of the week
(again), sponsored by Liebichwein.
Division Tw o at home on a perfect but
wet green had one rink up, one draw
and went down in a close encounter
62-67 against Kapunda. Richard
Bellchambers 22-29 to J Scholes, Dick
Filsell 19-19 to Wayne Reardon and
Martin Launer 21-19 over Ron Rogers.
Back at Angaston, Division One with
only one rink up failed dismally to han-
dle conditions on the green as well as
the weather. Bill Day 11-26 to Keith
Sandford. Trevor Noble 21-28 to John
Standish; Glyn Ayres 19-22 to Brian
Bowden with Harry Sykes up 20-14
over To n y Edwards.
Climate change is here for bowls over
the past two weeks.

are Gaye McLeod and Stuey Allen.

Important announcement: Advice is
given to all affected members that the
Association Executive ruled the can-
celled round 7 between Tanunda White
and Nuriootpa Black is to be complet-
ed. The game has been scheduled to

matches, they now had a bye this
Tanunda Black midweek had a bye as
did Division Three.
Those that did play over this week had
a good result with only Division One,
just going down to Kapunda, by three
Tanunda White went off to Kapunda,
and came home winners, with two up
and one down, 65/47.
R Garrett kept in front of G Redden to
take it out 17/11. J Garrett also had a
good win against T Rae 29/15. K North
started off well against R Turnbull then
lost when the opposition scored on
nine ends straight to take it out 19/21.
Well, Saturday was a real shocker for
bowls. High winds and pelting rain saw
a game that came down to which side
could control their bowl on the green.
Division One went off to Kapunda just
missing out on a win by three shots. C
Mahoney and his team of R Mewett, D
Schiller and R Bartsch tried to get the
side over the line with a good win over
C. Sunman 38/13 but this being the
only team up overall the result was
inevitable. This great win did however,
earn them rink of the week. A
Hammond evened out that score by
reversing the trend and going down
17/35 against J Trotta. P Rost played
well against I Otterspoor. A five saw
them draw even then it was back and
forth until the end finally going down
26/28. G Fraser came back well after
being way down at the turn against R
Turnbull, but the run was too late,
going down 16/24.
Division Tw o , both White and Black,
played at home on a green that ran
well considering the conditions on the
d ay. Due to the conditions it was
decided to play to 15 ends before the
break in case the weather set in. The
game did continue, the weather got
worse and neither side completed the
required 25 ends. At the end of the
day all players conclude that weather
conditions were such that the game
became unplayable and finished at
between 18 and 22 ends.
Division Tw o White took on Angaston
White and with two up and one down,
finished the game one shot up 60/59.
J Miegel went down to L Schulz 14/24
in a game where the opposition kept
ahead all d ay. K Schmaal was up
against B Tuttle 22/14. Some high
scoring ends kept us comfortably in
front all day. R Garrett took on L
Mullins in a back and forth game but
finished off well to take it out 24/21
and concrete the win.
Division Tw o Black played Angaston
Blue. With all teams up it was taken
out 67/44. D Meertens played against
C Reardon in a good game which saw
them in front at the break. After the
break, we took out the final ends to
come out winners 21/17.
W Williams was one up against L
Teakle at the break but a return to the
green saw them go ahead to take it
out 20/15. K North also had a good
win against E Bond. We were way up
at the break and I think the opposition
would have been glad to see the game
ove r, going down 26/12.
They tell we a well deserved winner of
the Wohlers prize this week was young
Kel Hoffmann, apparently played well
in the conditions, congratulations.

lost to N Christopherson 31-21 after
being all square at the 21s, however,

sealed their fate.
Fred Hines rink drew with Peter
Rosenberg 24-all in a fitting end to a
day-long struggle with successive
threes on the 23rd and 24th ends
