Tuross Head Bowler’s Christmas Fun Day

By |2021-12-21T15:09:25+11:00December 21st, 2021|Categories: Women's Bowls|

Successful Combined Men’s and Women’s Bowls
Christmas Party

After many years of celebrating the end of year Christmas party as a women’s only event, the present committee decided to invite the male bowlers to join them this year for a combined Christmas fun event.
This proved to be a very successful initiative.

On Tuesday 14th December, 57 members attended the celebration. Traditionally the women members have dressed up in costumes pertaining to a letter of the alphabet. This has always created such frivolity and excitement. This year the dress code was the “Letter K” or Christmas attire and many members got in the mood and dressed up.

Members arrived in their costumes, to be provided with a beautiful Christmas morning tea, including champagne and fruit punch. This was followed by a “Joe’s Special” game of bowls.

A beautiful BBQ lunch was held after the bowls in the downstairs area of Club Tuross. A big thankyou to the able cooks, Greg Thornton, Colin Fletcher and John Fahey who assisted. The women provided delicious salads and sweets.

A total of 16 lucky door prizes were given out. We had the fun of a “chicken dinner” spinning wheel and a Christmas raffle, creating lots of opportunities to take home a prize.

President Doreen Monks chose the three best costume winners. Congratulations to Pam Mazzucchelli (King David), Julie Barningham (Knitter) and Denise Lidbury (Kung Fu)
on your creativity and skill.

After all that excitement, there was the traditional visit from Santa Claus who gave each member a gift.
Thanks were extended to all involved in organising and to those members who donated goods for the day. The annual “gift of appreciation” was presented to Tim and his greenkeeping staff, who work so hard to keep our greens in peak condition.

It was a very happy, successful day of friendship and fun. So many people made positive comments to the organisers and hoped that a similar event would occur again in future years.

Tuross Head Bowlers Combined
Presentation Day

Tuross Head bowlers held their Annual Presentation Day on Tuesday 16th November.
The bowlers enjoyed a game of bowls on a lovely sunny day. A feature of the day is the game played by the two Presidents’ chosen sides. This year it was won by the women.
Following the games everyone enjoyed a delightful lunch, provided by Jack’s kitchen.
The tables, decorated by Cheryl McRae and helper Pam Mazzucchelli looked very smart with the black tablecloths and Australian native flowers.
During lunch, bowlers enjoyed a slide show depicting the champions and highlights of the events of 2021. Despite the disruption of COVID, most major bowls championship events were able to be played.

MC for the day, Womens Bowls Secretary Irene Macdonald welcomed all bowlers to the celebratory event. A special guest was Tuross Head Country Club President, Roger Chappell who gave a very feeling speech and commended the Mixed Pairs final between the Lidburys and the Wagstaffs, as a tremendously skilled and exciting game.
Following lunch, Presidents Doreen Monks and Col Fletcher gave short speeches before presenting the following members with their awards.
Doreen mentioned the sad passing of veteran bowler and Women’s Patron – June Everett who died in Sydney in September aged 94.
Major Singles Women’s Champion – Rita Downie
Major Singles Women’s runner- up – Margaret

The Women’s Consistency competition was in progress at the time. Two very talented bowlers, Sue Fahey and Denise Lidbury played off in the final, on Thursday. It was a wonderful, intense for the players match, but an exciting one for the spectators, with Denise the eventual victor. Congratulations to these two champion bowlers.

We held a combined Ham Day last Wednesday and the winners received Christmas hams or turkeys. We were so lucky to get two games of 15 ends in before the rain. Several random lucky draw winners, as well as the daily raffle winners also took home some well received Christmas “booty”.
We look forward to a combined Christmas Fun day on Tuesday 14th December and another Christmas Ham Day on 18th December.
Women’s Bowls will recommence on 11th January. Men’s bowls continues throughout the holiday season.
We would welcome any new bowlers to our social bowls. Women play on Tuesdays, men on Wednesdays and Fridays and a fun event, “Barefoot Bowls /sizzlers” on Sunday mornings. Enquire at Club Reception or Secretaries. (see below for contact details)

Tuross Head Women’s Bowling Club Pennant 2 team off to the State playoffs in September

There was great excitement at Merimbula Bowling Club on Tuesday, 8th June when the Tuross Head women played the team from Adaminaby.

Tuross were the eventual winners after a very close and tense end to the game. After a beautiful lunch, they received the Region 9, Pennant 2 pins at presentation.

A wonderful contingent of supporters, husbands and Tuross bowling members, along with the team mascots, travelled to Merimbula to spur the ladies on with loud cheering and applause.

The ladies will now travel a very long way to the Tweed Coast in September for the State playoff at the Pottsville Bowling Club. They will meet players from all Regions across the State who won their Pennant 2 finals.

Pennant 1 play at Kingscliff, Pennant 3 at Cabarita and Pennant 4 at Banora Point.

80th Birthday celebrations after Bowlers AGM

By |2020-08-16T14:45:30+10:00August 16th, 2020|Categories: Women's Bowls|

Tuross Head Women were very happy to be able to celebrate the  milestone birthdays of three special ladies.

It is traditional that we celebrate the 80th birthdays of any member at the Annual General Meeting.

Pam Mazzucchelli and Glad Mc Pherson have been  keen affiliated bowlers  with Tuross Head Womens Club for many years.

Both Pam and Glad turned 80 earlier in the year and still hope to celebrate with their families once restrictions are lifted.

Leslie Wilmouth, who will turn 80 next week, has previously been a social bowling  member  and has been a wonderful help to the club in helping produce a recent photo book for our 60th Anniversary in 2018.

The   magnificent sponge cake, made and delivered  by Bodalla Bakery, was cut by the three ladies as we sang to them.  The cake was then served ( Covid Style ) to all members who attended the AGM.

Many happy returns ladies from all members and friends at Tuross Country Club.

Once  Tuross women were able to return to bowls, we held our  Minor Singles followed by our Major Pairs  championship games.

We congratulate Diane Fletcher who is a new comer to bowls. Diane was excited to claim the trophy this year. The runner – up was Kathy Gallacher.

The Pairs games were played over   several weeks and was delayed due to  rain affected greens. However Rita Downie and Carol Williams claimed the championship this year after some very exciting games to get to the final. They are pictured with Club President Jenny Madden after being presented with their  winners badges.  The runners up in the Pairs were  Chris Roxby and Lorraine Johnston.

Carol Williams Major Singles Winner 2020

Carol Williams  – Tuross Head Women’s  Major Singles Winner 2020

We are all missing our lawn bowls  as we haven’t played since mid- March.  Just before we ceased playing, Tuross Head  finalised their Women’s Major Singles competition.

This match was a very exciting one between two very experienced bowlers Carol Williams and Gail Page. It was a treat for spectators as they cheered the finalists along.

Carol  Williams ended up being the victor  for 2020 with Gail Page- Davies a worthy runner- up.

Carol was especially thrilled with her success as she has played bowls at high level at Tuross for many years, and has been a wonderful mentor to many players, but this year was the first time she has been able to win the coveted Club Major singles.

Congratulations Carol.  Your photo will go on the board of  2020 champions !!
