CONGRATULATIONS Kerry Miller, a new Gladstone Bowls Club member who played his second game last Thursday afternoon. All present welcomed him and wished him a happy and long bowls career.

Visitors included around-Australia caravanners Peter Clark- Perth ? Bob Greer (ex-RAN) ? Rockingham and South Grafton Clubs and Vic and Loraine Butts from Old Bar Beach Bowls Club, central NSW coast.

They all agreed a feature of their travels was the warm welcome and friendship extended by bowls clubs all over Australia.

They are enjoying our great winter weather and fast true greens.

Into the groove AN interesting article in Queensland Bowler June 2005, by coach Rick Dickson is well worth a read no matter what your expertise and skill.

"A person new to the game of bowls smiles when we tell them that bowls is a simple game.

'It is a simple game,' Dickson writes.

'It is the person holding the bowl who complicates the game.

'Broken down to its simplest form, bowls merely requires you to deliver an object along a predetermined line with a constant action.

'Bowls is a sport in which the instrument you are using will do all the work, if you are prepared to let it do so.'

Sounds simple does it not? The secret is a grooved delivery. To most of us, the trouble is constantly finding the right groove. There's the rub.

1770 Bowls Club CLUB founders John and Leonie McDougall will return to 1770 Bowls Club on Sunday to present their Triples Trophy.

They now reside in Bundaberg and will bring a few former club members to swell the numbers on the day.

In a close pairs game last Saturday, Paul Lewis and Neil Holmes defeated Neil Grambower and Bob Hoban 25-22.
