We were saddened to learn of Noelle’s passing on 28th December. We offer our sincerest condolences to fellow member and husband Roy. Noelle’s life will be celebrated at a private ceremony on 20th January.
We had a great Xmas breakup party with a very good turnout for the new, more relaxed format. The Whisky Gypsies provided excellent music with dancing right up to the close.
Well done and THANK YOU Debbie Johnstone for organising this terrific event.
Once again, Bentleigh put on a fantastic tournament. A wee shower after the first game slowed it down a touch, but we were very lucky as the previous day was well over 40 degrees.
There were many people involved in making the day a success – far too many to mention individually. However, if I may, I’ll acknowledge and thank the following people for their significant input leading up to and on the day:
Congratulations to the tournament’s winners:
Overall Winners Greg Fletcher, Moorabbin
Runners Up Kieran Casey, Coatesville
1st game Ian Jones, Sale
2nd game Kevin Pattison, Brighton
3rd game Mark Kirkham, Bentleigh
I would also like to acknowledge and thank the Sale and Milawa teams who traveled a long way to get to our tournament. We might be seeing a Bentleigh side or two venture to their tournaments down the track…
A selection of photos from the day are up on our Facebook page:
Dennis Jacobsen has launched Friday Night barefoot bowls. The hardest part is getting people to come along, so we need everyone to get behind DJ and invite friends and family down to have a go. DJ would also like some help on the evenings (setting up, bar, helping guests, packing up etc) so if you can lend a hand, I’m sure DJ will be rapt.
Thanks to David Crook and Clarky, our new website is up and running and content on the old website closed out.

And one from Layla…
A wife, being the romantic sort, sent her BBC husband a text: “If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you!”
The husband, typically non-romantic, replied: “I am on the toilet. Please advise.”
