JBC Lawn Bowling Greens - Feedback Comments:


 

The Greens Team welcomes all comments relating to the Greens and the surrounding gardens, from both members and visitors. All comments / criticisms will be appreciated and will help us in our endeavours to achieve perfection; emails should be sent to:- jbcgreensteam@gmail.com

 

It has been suggested that the Greens Information Board should indicate which greens have been cut and/or rolled so from henceforth the Green-Keeper will, each day, indicate ‘C’ for cut and (you’ve guessed it!)………….‘R’ for roll. Up until the present we have only indicated Open or Closed.

 

On occasions there is much talk about Green Speed and we therefore encourage members to learn to use the ramp and speed ball method to record actual values rather than rely on ‘gut feel assessments’. Those interested in learning how to record these values should contact the undersigned.

 

Happy bowling on what we consider to be some of the best lawn bowling greens in W.A.

 

Dave Saunders

Greens Committee Chairperson.

JOB OPPORTUNITY

 


JBC is growing rapidly with new members now having to wait to begin their coaching. The club needs more qualified coaches, both men & ladies.

 

Coaching is very rewarding and will definitely improve the level of the coach’s own bowls. Hours will vary according to demand; but 2 more qualified coaches will result in about 2 hours per week being needed to assist. You don’t have to be the best bowler in the club to be a good coach; just able to analyse & improve new bowlers’ techniques and help them enjoy the game.

The pay is sensational and doubles each year!!!!!

 

If you can assist or need more information, please see Eric Buck or Geoff Stevenson.

Opening of C-Green (from 2-00pm) for Monday Afternoon Practice.


 

 

Management Committee have decided during the summer months to trial the opening of C-Green on Monday afternoons from 2-00pm for practice sessions. This is mainly for the benefit of the Ladies Pennant teams when they are playing at home the next day, but if sufficient rinks are available then other members (ladies & gents) are encouraged to use this opportunity for extra practice.

 

 

Weeks when the ladies are ‘playing away’, and if there is sufficient interest from other members, then if possible this  arrangement could continue. Having said that it should be appreciated that Green-keeper Craig may have scheduled Monday maintenance duties to attend to whereby for safety reasons there would  be occasions when all greens would have to remain closed.  We will always endeavour to keep our website updated by Sunday evening which gives all interested parties sufficient time to plan their Monday afternoon activity. Craig will update the Greens Board on Monday mornings for the benefit of members who do not have computer access.

 

 

One final point is that the green will not be cut (or rolled) on Monday morning so it would be expected to  play slower than  for match play but quick enough to hone some practice skills! I would appreciate if players would keep me updated on how this arrangement is working and if there are any issues then ‘The Greens Team’ can consider how to address them.

 

 

Happy bowling

 

Dave Saunders

Greens Committee Chairperson.

Ladies News


The ladies have been blessed with some lovely weather of late and have been getting ready for Pennants. Special Thanks To Geoff Stephenson for Pennants coaching.

On Tuesday we were able to get in some valuable Pennants practice with Scarborough and Quinns. It gave us a good insight on how we were travelling and where we need to be. Thanks to both clubs for participating.

On Wednesday 17th October we held the annual Trish Kalajzic Trophy. We cannot thank Trish enough for sponsoring this Trophy and encouraging the new bowlers to participate and mixing with the more experienced players. It is a wonderful concept and we hope you continue the trophy in many years to come.

The winners on the day were Myrna Sabel and Janet Poulter.

Runners Up was Ruth Embra and Sue, the killer Willett.

And second runners up were Glenda Pickford and Soly Batka.

Well done to all players on the day and once again thank you Trish.
