tees off Blyth
Presentation caps big year of Two Wells bowls
After 24.0ml from Huey and blessed
with a howling 40 knot nor’westerly, the
greensward welcomed 22 sturdy souls for
a Stroke stoush last Saturday, who sought
fame and glory in the form of the Bakers’
Springs Wines Trophy. This was also the
qualifying round for both the President’s
and Captain’s Trophies. Suffice it to say
that Wild Bill Lokan played out of his skin to
scalp the A graders with his score of 80/71,
which also won him the Bakers’ Springs
goodies. Mighty Merv Hameister (86/73)
hamstrung his way into second place, while
young Willum Parkin sauntered into third
with an effortless 81/78. Claiming that they
had elected not to “podium” due to their
steadfast embrace of existentialism were
P. Thompson (90/82), D. Taylor (98/85) and
a somewhat wayward M. Loy (100/89).
The B grade was humbled by the su-
perhuman efforts of Wayne “The Nurgler”
Nagle (87/73) - that’s right housewives,
“Wayne Nagle” lasts the whole day through,
so buy “Wayne Nagle” today - available
from all leading army surplus stores. John
Curnow (92/74) ploughed his way into
second place leaving the dreaded Ginja
Ninja, Dave Rodgers (96/75), to claim
third spot. Then came J. Michael (95/76),
G. Sonntag (97/78), W. Berry (95/79),
Patricia Anderson (96/80), G. Leo (DNF)
and beating a hasty retreat back into his
beloved C grade, A. Henstridge (102/82).
Forming the pantheon of C grade as-
pirations was the triumphant triumvirate of
Messrs. Ian (or “Jim”, if you meet him in the
shearing shed) Bastion (100/73), Detective
Dean Trickett (98/75) and Digby “Plumb
Bob” Addison (101/79). Left to stumble
about in the rubble of pantheons past were
M. Bell (112/82), Les Pearson (118/91),
that blast from the past Bruce Fremantle
(120/96) and the coolest dude of them all,
G. Anderson (125/97).
Birdies were achieved by Wayne “All
Day” Nagle on both the 8th and 10th, Bill
Lokan (10th) and Digby Addison (4th?).
Nearest The Pins were held by John
Curnow (3rd), Wayne “All Day” Nagle (8th),
Wild Bill Lokan (10th and 15th) and young
Willum Parkin for his second shot onto the
17th. Golfer of the Winter points therefore
went to Bill Lokan (6), Merv Hameister (5),
Wayne Nagle (4), Ian Bastian (3), John
Curnow (2) and the rest of we muppets,
one each. Those who passed muster for the
President’s Trophy round were Bill Lokan,
Merv Hameister, Wayne Nagle, Ian Bas-
tian, John Curnow, David Rodgers, Dean
Trickett and John Michael. To spar for the
Captain’s Trophy will be Bill Parkin, Greg
Sonntag, Bill Berry, Digby Addison, Peter
Thompson, Austin Henstridge, Martyn Bell
and Doug Taylor. Both these rounds must
begin on Saturday May 11.
This weekend we will use a Stableford
stoush to determine just who will win the
Goldney Welding Trophy, while also starting
this year’s Split Sixes side-bar competition.
Martyn Bell will apply lit matches to the toes
of any slow starters, while Graham “Emu”
Ackland will apply all manner of salves and
unctions to those who manage to limp all
the way back to the 19th.

comfortable day for golf and the wind did
not keep the flies away. Scores showed

The top three players in the A Grade
have been in contention week after week,
and showed again why. Robert Hogg +1
won from Gary Payne, also +1, and Stuart
Grigg square with the card. It was the
same in B Grade with John Ball +2, the

Plains Recycling, also sponsored the day.
Julie Holland and Elaine Grigg were the
minor placegetters with –4 . Kathy also
donated three dozen golf balls to the club
and gave out recycling bags as prizes for
all winners, which was much appreciated.
A highlight of the day was an eagle on
the Par 5 13th hole by Yogi Frencken – he
went home with a Two Wells glass as well
as picking up a meat tray.
