YAMBA Men’s Lawn Bowls: Yamba Classic Pairs this weekend.
The prestigious 2020 Yamba Classic Pairs tournament was staged at the club this
weekend with a strong field of more than forty teams vying for a share of the extensive
prizemoney with the winning duo collecting $2000. In addition to the prizemoney, the
tournament also carries valuable Bowls Australia ranking points for the first four teams.
COVID restrictions will prevent last year’s winning sibling combination of Kane and Jacob
Nelson, currently ranked four and six in Australia, from making the trip south from Belmont
in Brisbane. However, several different and hopeful combinations will make the journey to
the Yamba with representatives from Tarren Point in Sydney, Scone, Lismore, Inverell, the
Tweed and other diverse areas across the state accepting the challenge.
The tournament will be played over five rounds, three on Saturday and two on Sunday. The
weekend will be a highlight of the lawn bowl’s year and action is programmed to commence
at 9am on both days.
On the following weekend, Saturday and Sunday October 17-18, the club will host the
CRDBA Champion of Club Champion Singles Championship with club champions from all
eight Clarence River District clubs converging upon Yamba in their quest to advance to the
Zone One finals and ultimately the State Finals. Yamba will be represented by Steve ‘Scruffy’
Jackson. The quarter and semi-finals are scheduled for Saturday morning and afternoon
respectively with the final to be played at 12.45pm on Sunday.
The club’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday October 18 commencing at
9.30am so members are encouraged to get to the meeting and then watch the Champion of
Nominations for the Handicap Fours, Stan Brown Shield, Consistency Singles, Mixed Pairs
and Mixed Fours Championships are currently open and all members are encouraged to get

ANY day is a good day for croquet, so come and join us.
Tuesday – Things started off slowly but Eric had his eye in and scored a nice in off shot.
I’m told there was a good many other near misses, balls refusing to go through the hoop and just missing Golden Hoop by a whisker. Thank goodness Karen and Carole hadn’t lost their touch, both getting a Golden Hoop. Could this slump be due to the early starts because of daylight saving?
Thursday – Numbers were down a bit. Perhaps with the holidays all the grandchildren were visiting which kept all the nanas and poppas at home.
But we did celebrate Don and Patties birthday with chocolate cake, Don’s favourite. Happy birthday to you both.
New players are always welcome. Our days of play are Tuesday and Thursday from 7.30am. All equipment is supplied. The cost to play is $6 per session
For more information contact Carole Radford 0427 783 330 or Karen Marsden 0437 157 198 or just turn up to play. We are located at the Lawrence Golf Course, Anne/March streets, Lawrence.
LAST Wednesday we had a good turnout and it was a magic day and we played 7 point games and the winning teams were, Fay/Clare, Toni/David, Susie M/Graham, Diane/Cheryl, Ian/John, Toni/Clare, Susie M/Diane, Beryl/Anne, Sue G/Susie M, Wendy/Sue G, Jan/Ian, Susan R/Steve, Lexie/John. Rosemary won the Sheriff’s Badge only to see Lexie steal it off her and ride off into the distance. Hard to pick a stand out player with people being so equal but John would take it out today.
From now on after the games all players must sign into the club and pay their game fee to the change counter or use “Bowlo Bucks” at the bar or reception and get a receipt which they will give to Fay for our records. CEO Phil Broughton explained that this was another COVID-19 precaution that is required.
Join us on Wednesdays, arrive 8.30am for 9am hit off. New members and visitors welcome, flat soled shoes are a must. All equipment supplied and people to teach you the game of “Golf Croquet” or if you are already playing we would love to have game with you. Cost is $10. Contact John and Fay Church on 6645 8189 or Graham Schubert on 6645 8073 or just turn up. See you at Croquet at the Bowlo!
