Terry Warder's debut series for the Australian Senior Jackaroos has proved extremely successful as the Seniors claimed all three Tests over New Zealand in the Trans-Tasman series on the Gold Coast.

Terry played 2nd in the Senior Triples and 3rd in the Senior Fours and the teams enjoyed an undefeated day on Monday in the 1st Test at Club Helensvale, convincingly winning both of their matches in the Triples, 24/4 and 22/15, and recording a solid win in the Fours, 18/5.

Tuesday's 2nd Test at Musgrave Hill proved more of a challenge as the Senior Kiwis regrouped overnight and inflicted a 9/18 loss in the opening Fours match, then forced a 14/14 draw in the Triples before the Jackaroos claimed a 16/11 victory in the afternoon's Fours.

The 3rd and final Test of the Trans-Tasman at Broadbeach on Wednesday saw the Australian Senior Jackaroos completely dominate and join all the other Australian teams in claiming a series victory over the Kiwis. Terry's rink won both their Triples matches, 21/16 and 21/10, and scored a convincing 19/6 win in the Fours.

 

Reflecting on his debut series as an Australian player, Terry expressed his immense excitement at being selected in the first place and was thrilled to have played so well and to have recorded such an emphatic series win.  Over 9 matches, Terry's rink scored 7 wins, a draw and just a solitary loss.

Well done Ernie...you have done yourself, your family, your Club and your country proud!!

Earlier this month 40 Mosman BC members participated in the club's 6th annual Bowls Tour, this time a return visit to New Zealand. Previous tours visited clubs in Port Macquarie, Perth, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Friendly tournaments were played at the Lyall Bay (Wellington), Palmerston North and Napier Bowling Clubs where the host clubs provided typically warm Kiwi hospitality!

The annual tours are a great way to end the bowling year and do much to continue the strong friendship bonds amongst everyone at Mosman BC.

 

NSW WATER RESTRICTIONS

Mark Alexander, Thursday, 21 November 2019

 

In response to the NSW Government move to introduce Level 2 Water Restrictions from 10th December, BNSW has today released Circular 17/2019 - NSW Water Restrictions.

 

BNSW is mindful that many Clubs have commenced renovating their greens and is concerned at the impact these water restrictions may have at such a critical time of the renovation season.

 

Please refer to Circular 17/2019 (see link below) for some useful information and Clubs are also asked to be on the lookout for an upcoming survey being sent to all sporting bodies across NSW.

PREPARATION FOR 2020 PENNANT SEASON

Mark Alexander, Thursday, 21 November 2019

 

Thanks to all Clubs for sending through their 2020 Pennant Grade Applications and their Pennant Player Availability Lists.

Between now and the end of the year, the Zone 9 Match Committee will assess all this data and prepare the 2020 Zone 9 Pennant Program that must be presented to BNSW by late December.

 

In the meantime, there are a number of matters that Clubs must be keeping an eye on:

 

1.    Additions to the Pennant Player Availability Lists

With Clubs now having submitted their PPA Lists, any changes (especially additions) to these lists must be made as per the following:

  • upto and including 28th December, Clubs can notify Zone Secretary Mark Alexander and the Z9MC and we will make the requested changes

 

  • after 28th December (ie. after we have submitted our paperwork to BNSW), Clubs will be required to use the relevant form (see link below)

 

 

2.    Clearances

We are aware of a number of players who have changed Clubs for 2020 but for whom we have not received a copy of their clearance paperwork.  It is imperative that players who have changed Clubs have their clearance processed and cleared by BNSW and a copy is forwarded to Zone Secretary Mark Alexander.  The Zone 9 Match Committee cross-references clearances with the PPA Lists to make sure all is in order.

 

 

3.    Regrades

Please do not send through any regrade requests until we have received confirmation from the State Match Committee that our 2020 Pennant Program (incl. Pennant Grades) has been approved.  All Clubs will be notified when this approval has been received but this is not expected till at least mid-January.
