It would appear word has got round that Beaumaris BC has found a way of disseminating news and information to its members quickly and easily so we have been hacked,( by the Russians) that is why our last edition had to be reissued, so Tony and I have employed the FBI, Jack Reacher and HARRY BOSCH to protect further editions. The Editor.
WOW – We certainly had a great Gala Day with the 28 teams to fill both rinks and the Club house looking tremendous, decorated for the occasion. The weather gods certainly answered our prayers, warm and sunny. The day was just a great success, from feedback we know that everybody enjoyed themselves, to the workers it didn’t feel like that at 4 o’clock but by Friday on looking back there was much satisfaction. WELL DONE EVERYBODY.

Have you noticed many of us have had our names machine printed on our shirts and jackets?

MEMBERS/DUTY TEAM’S RESPONSIBILITIES – It is NOT the duty team’s responsibility to tidy the rink after the completion of the game. This is the responsibility of the team playing on that rink to put away mats and jacks, rakes into the sheds AND BRING DOWN THE FLAGS.
PLEASE endeavour to put your white plastic cup in the rubbish bin especially obvious on windy days like last Saturday, they were everywhere.

Graeme Rodgers will be competing in the Finals Play-offs of the regional over 60’s Singles on 12-14 December at the City of Frankston BC. Good Luck Graeme!

Tatts Club Visit We were joined by Tatts Club members on Monday afternoon for a social game with a BBQ to follow. Luckily the rain stayed away and 85 bowlers completed the game of 15 ends. The winning team for Beauy was John O’Reilly, Bill Arthur, Peter Boyle and skip Tony Davoren.
Unaware of the history of the Tatts Club I was told these players are a group of bowlers, formed many years ago, that play at different clubs around Victoria on Mondays because they were traditionally involved in horse racing on Saturdays.

Below is a report by Malcolm Parks

Following the meeting of our members on 22nd Nov.,2018, a motion was submitted to Sandbelt region that Sandbelt members call a Special General Meeting of BV to discuss the 3 options to change the administration of Metropolitan Pennant.
The letter sent by BBC to BV requesting further information was acknowledged by BV but it did not address any of the questions raised.
Sandbelt advised that the motion would not be put to the meeting on 3rd Dec.,2018, as under the constitution 30 days notice is required.
At the meeting there was very robust discussion where there was almost no support for the 3 options proposed by BV.
The following resolution was unanimously passed by the 45 members present ‘This Region is opposed to any change unless BV submit justification for change together with implications of each option including financial implications’.
It was also announced at the meeting that Bowls Australia has determined that for the 2021/22 season Pennant throughout Australia will commence in November.
