Club Selectors 2018/19

Due to the illness of Mike Scolyer, the Bowls Committee has appointed Tony Doube as a selector for Div 7 East on Saturdays and Div 3 East White on Wednesday.

Bob Jamieson has been replaced by Bob Hardacre. He will be the selector for Saturday games in Div 4 North White. 

The full list of Selectors now looks like this:

Three Bowls Tournament

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, Rick Smith, President, announced that the Bowling Committee had voted in favour of a motion that from 2019 the Three Bowls Tournament would be renamed to the “David Bailey Memorial Day.”  The announcement was greeted by applause and cheering.  

Goodbye Kelvin

A touching farewell presentation to Kelvin Raethel who has been selling raffle tickets on Saturdays. He became a Club Legend over the last 15 years and was well known by our member plus the oppositions. He was a very dedicated man who use to use two buses to get to the Club. Kelvin always gave a smile and enjoyed a chat.

The CEO Ian presented Kelvin with a small gift on behalf of the Club for a job well done.

Please keep Kelvin in your thoughts as he battles his road before him.

Well done Kelvin.

An Appeal for Photographs

Di Harder is our intrepid photographer but she can’t be everywhere all the time. If you take photos around the club that you are prepared to share with our readers, please send them to Ken Sleeman, David Bailey or Di Harder for consideration. We can not promise that we will show all of them (nothing on a bearskin rug) but send them in just the same.


On a bit of a sad note, the Justices Bowling Club has been forced to dissolve due to a lack of members. So those of us who enjoyed the annual visit from them will be disappointed this year. The Justices have been visiting and playing against Clearview for a number of years now and it was always a nice social day out as well as a good game of bowls.
