The 2015-16 season of Little Athletics
commenced in late August and is well
underway. The season runs through until
mid March 2016 and registrations are
accepted via our website right through
the season:
We had over 190 athletes registered
48 The Journal Nov / Dec / Jan
prior to season commencement and are
hoping to eclipse last season’s numbers
of 231. At the beginning of the season
new athletes were taught all the skills
involved in track and field events while
returning athletes refined their skills in
readiness for the Annual Zone Carnival
where they compete against athletes
from 6 Centres within our Zone. The
Zone carnival this year is being held at
The Ridge Athletics Ground from 11-13
December. It is also anticipated that we
may have some teams competing in the
State Relays at SOPAC in late November
although this is yet to be finalised. As with
most sports Little Athletics requires a large
number of parent volunteers to assist in
the running of our Competition nights. We
are also grateful to a number of ex-athletes
and ex-committee members who come
along and assist us with setting up each
Friday, judging our walks events and
helping out with canteen as needed.
For any information or enquiries please
contact Christine on 0413886431.

History of the Bowl for Others
In 1961, the President of the New South
Wales Women’s Bowling Association
Mrs Gladys Pattison envisaged the
tremendous potential there was for
women bowlers to assist the less
fortunate in our community.
Our Club Triples Championship was
finished in July. The winners were L
Gallant, N Gray and B Park with runners up
M Holloway, F Hadden and B Graham.
A meeting in November 1961 resulted
in the bowl for other club being formed.
Subscription donations from the charity
Gala and Special Days, spiders, wrong
bias etc annually results in cheques being
presented at the BFC Luncheon. The
date was September 25 at Masonic Club
Sydney, at which we were represented by
eight of our lady bowlers. To name few
of the charities was Sydney Eye Hospital,
Air Ambulance, Diabetes, Cancer, Asthma
and Dementia. President Edna thanked all
for their attendance and their generosity
supporting the charities.
On July 26th our annual Christmas in July
Mixed Triples Day was held sponsored by
Jackies Bowls Shop. A great day was held
with 24 teams competing from various
clubs around the area. It was a very
successful day with a team from Roseland
Flame Bowling Club winning the day. It is
a pleasure to announce that we donated
$900 to the Australian Cord Blood Assn.

In September each year we hold our Spring
Triples Day sponsored by Daryl Melham.
What a great day we had again with 28
teams competing in it from many bowling
clubs in the Metropolitan area. The
weather was so kind to us and lovely to be
playing in such Spring weather.
Two games of 13 ends bowls were
held and this was followed by a lovely
smorgasbord lunch. The winners of the
day were a team from Revesby Workers.

The final of the Revesby Workers Major/
Minor 2015 pairs was decided in July in
a closely fought nip and tuck match that
couldn’t be decided in the normal 21
ends. Kip Royall and skip Doug Hawkins
really had a battle royal against Laurie
Wilson and Shane Matakaiongo (Spiff )
with hardly a struck match between them.
Their card read; 7all after 7 ends, 11 all
after 11 ends, 13 all at 13 ends, 15 all
at 15 ends and 18 all after what should
have been the final 21st end, so forcing
the game into golden point. Its a pity
that there had to be a winner or loser
after such an even contest. Kip took the
mat for this definite final end and just to
show much a good lead is worth, he cool
as ice put down two bowls right on the
jack and neither Laurie or Spiff (or Doug)
could get inside them. Game, set and
match to Kip and Doug. Congratulations
to Kipand Doug as our new champs and
also Laurie and Spiff for providing such a
great contest.
The final of the veterans singles
championship was played on 19 August
at Homelea Ave between Ross Graham
and Adrian Hart.The game was played
over a shortened version of the normal
singles championship, something that
was put to a vote because someone
thought the longer version was too much
for our veterans (over 70’s) and finished
up pleasing nobody.It was still a very
good contest between these two vets,
who gave it their all, with only 2 shots
separating them after 20 ends, which
were also close being 10 apeice. Doesn’t
get much closer than that, but there had
to be a winner and that was Adrian Hart
who just edged out former vets champ
and Olympian (basketball, Rome 1960)
Ross Graham. Neither player collapsed
from exhaustion or needed mouth to
mouth (glad about that)after the game
and certainly could have played more
ends. Perhaps the committee could have
a rethink on this matter.
On Wednesday 26 August it was bring a
buddy day at the fibro, meat tray mania
day as usual. Winners rink drawn out of
barrel, was rink 2, losers rink was also rink
2. Jackpot was at maximum $600 that
day and also went to rink 2.No we are not
going to name the lucky six clean living
gentlemen who won, (plenty have done
that already) but it goes to show that the
place to be is the fibro.
Meat tray mania, where up to 12 big meat
trays are there to be won each day, will
continue right up to Christmas, there will
be hams too so don’t miss out. Get in for
your chop. The 5th/Sept was a Saturday
50 The Journal Nov / Dec / Jan
social pairs game between D/D v M/M
and after 3 ends M/M were leading 8-0.
D/D were having a bad run and skip D was
not happy at all while skip M was feeling
smug and was talking it up, patronising
his opponent .Then it was 15-1, and after
10 ends it was 20-2. Skip D was blaming
the selectors, the weather, the atom bomb
etc for his misfortune in having to play
with this bunch of losers etc, etc. Skip M
was almost off the planet as he took great
delight in watching team D squirm and
curse about everything being set against
them. Then a slight change came about, as
it can in our game and D/D then won the
next 5 ends in a row, all just by the single
shot, 20-7. No need to panic thought M, we
will get back on track soon. But a 3, then a
4, suddenly DID cause panic and with good
cause, as after 21 ends of a 25 end game,
it was 20-20. M went quiet, not so cocky
now, while D was full of praise for all those
people he was not too keen on earlier.
Then as if by magic M/M got a big FIVE
shots on end 22. ” We are back”, thought
the now once again smug M, and hurried
to get the next end going only to see
D/D win it by 2 shots, to make it 25-22
to M/M. Here, M casually suggested “we
make this the last end, save bowling them
back etc. ”. “ Bull------T!!” said D, its UP and
bloody BACK!!. D/D still needed 4 to win,
in two ends and after getting one shot
on the 24th end they now needed 3 to
win on the last. In a close fought last end
team D/D also won the last end with a
TWO to make it 25-25, a DRAWN match!!
Incredably they won the ends 16 -9 . (14
out of the last 16) D/D were now friends
with all, but would have liked another
end, while M/M were not quite so smug
now. It should have ended there but the
comp. winners had to be decided.
Winning rink was called, not D,or M’s.
Losers rink 2 was called, OURS! D/D were
quick to stand up, but no, a count back
said the meat trays go to LOSERS M/M.
Huh! Someone said Smug b------s. While M
just smiled(smirked) with meat tray under
arm. Well sometimes it just pays to lose,
but of course that is why we love to play
this great game.Well don’t we?
This will be our last report for 2015 so
on behalf of Pres. Ray Hopkins we would
like to say thank you to all the committee
members and volunteers for their help
in 2015, to Jan Stiskala of Stonecraft for
his continued support of our club, his
stone products are much sort after and
wish all members and friends all the best
for the coming Christmas and new year
festivities as well as good bowling in 2016.
Remember the place to be is THE FIBRO.

The Annual General meeting was held on
22 July at which meeting the following
Office Bearers were re-elected – President,
Trevor Heaslip; Secretary, Christine Benham,
Treasurer, Ray Benham; Vice Presidents,
Chris Reid and Steve Floyd and Assistant
Secretary Lindsay Le Bas. It was also great
to see Ben Heaslip put up his hand to take

Melham, Col Heaslip, and Terry Semlitzky
were appointed patrons of the Club in
recognition of their commitment and
interest shown in the Club over many years.
Registrations were held in August, with
good numbers of players signing up. 7
senior sides have been affiliated (the same
as last season) and 9 junior and mini sides
(one more than last season). Competition
commenced on 12 September and we are
having mixed success, but having lots of
fun in the process!
Selections for the Bankstown District
Cricket Association’s Junior representative
sides are in process and we expect some
of our fine young players will again be
selected in those teams.
We launched our season by participating in
a 20/20 match against a combined Georges
River District Cricket Club (GRDCC) and
Rockdale Council team. The game was
organised to commemorate the opening
of the newly refurbished Bexley Oval. We
were delighted to have been invited to play
at such an important event and picked a
strong Over 40 team to represent the Club.
Before the game commenced, Rockdale
Mayor Shane O’Brien, who captained
the opposition side, officially opened the
refurbished grandstand and wicket area, as
well as a new children’s play area. Revesby
Workers’ Club President, who is also a Patron
of our Cricket Club, was asked to address the
crowd and presented Mayor O’Brien with
a plaque in recognition of the special day
and as a thankyou from our Cricket Club for
being invited to participate...and we were
victorious on the day!
Pictured are Cricket Club President, Trevor
Heaslip, Revesby Workers’ Club President,

O’Brien during the formalities at Bexley Oval.

The winners are too numerous to mention
in this short article, so readers are invited to
visit our informative web site at for detailed
information about our Club, news, upcoming
events schedule and weekly event summary
with winner’s photos and results.
A mild, damp winter saw a good turnout of
players, with the highlights being the 2BBB
Championships (won by Steve Vaughn and
Rossco Hamer) and the 4BBB Matchplay
(won by Phil White and Rod Keen).
The concluding months for 2015 will
see a plethora of golfing events played
out over many great courses (Glenmore,
Cabramatta, Bankstown, HilltopMollymook, Antill Park, Campbelltown,
Hurstville and Georges River).
Event highlights will be the International
Cup, Presidents Cup and Guzzlers Cup, as
well as inter-club challenge matches, such
as the Lawson Cup at Cabramatta, Revesby
versus Goulburn Workers at Bankstown,
Revesby versus Canberra Workers at
Hilltop-Mollymook and finally, Revesby
versus Oakdale Workers at Antill Park.
And don’t forget a couple of BBQs
managed by our new Social Secretary,
John McDonald, are coming up after the
golf games to make the day just that more
satisfying and delicious.
The last game of the year will be the
extremely popular 2 Man Ambrose
Christmas Day event at Georges River,
followed by a huge feed and plentiful
supply of liquid refreshments to refresh
our memories of all the fun we had
throughout the year - so happy golfing :-)

What is Toastmasters and what can it
do for you?
Toastmasters will give you the skills and
confidence to express yourself in any
situation. It is the most efficient, enjoyable
and affordable way to gain confidence
while meeting new friends and having fun
in a supportive environment. Once you
have confidence and can express yourself a
new world of possibilities will open for you
and your life will change.
Congratulations to our club contest

Stralow, and Ray Toyer.
