ATHLETICS (JUNIOR) Liaison Director: John Rodwell 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: www.revesbylac.org.au 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.

BOWLS – LAWN (LADIES) SPENCE ST Liaison Director: Ian Stromborg 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.

Rimmer and D. Hopkins. 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. N Aggett, K Jacobson and M Pullen with runners up being a composite team J. Pavey, P Shiels and P Johanson.

BOWLS – LAWN (MENS) Liaison Director: Ian Stromborg 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. Merv Elder Publicity Officer ....................................................................................

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, Daryl Melham and Rockdale Mayor, Shane O’Brien during the formalities at Bexley Oval.
