Business House Bowls Wrap for Summer 2023
With a full field of 28 teams finals night consisted of 4 sections: The trophy, The Bowl, The Plate and The Spoon. Qualification for each section was determined by the teams finishing order in the 5 nights of round robin.
The top 4 teams competed for the Rex Redfern Memorial Bowl, which was kindly donated to the club by Simon O’Connor a long term participant in Social Business House Bowls.
Finals night was a great success with perfect playing conditions.
Pictured with the Rex Redfern Memorial Bowl is the winning team; The Jokers. The team members are John Myers, Bev Calder-Mayers (the organiser), Barbara Brown and John Weir.
Congratulations to the winners. We look forward to seeing you all back for more fun, sausages and camaraderie next November.

Another round of the hugely popular Business House Bowls was completed on Wednesday 16 March 2022. A full report is to follow.
Wednesday 2 December 2020 Results.
We have reached finals night which thanks to you all is the culmination of another successful round. We hope that you have all enjoyed yourselves and there is one more night of excitement to go !!! The results sheet sorted by finishing order is attached.
Fortunately my arithmetic (or is it maths these days) was correct and the top 4 are as announced this evening. Dolls with Bowls, Bowling Besties, Guacabowly and Young at Heart in that order. For the trophy on finals night 1st will play 4th and 2nd will play 3rd , then winners play winners for 1st and 2nd and losers play off for 3rd and 4th.
The remaining teams play a round robin in the bowl and the plate. I am still awaiting final confirmation as to who is playing so cannot confirm who is in which section at this stage. Suffice to say that it is based on finishing order and likely to be (after the top 4) the next 8 in the bowl and the next 10 in the plate.
On behalf of the club thank you all for being such good sports and making the league a pleasure to run. Our club is very much part of the Bays community and we wish at all times to integrate as best we can. Spread the word we always are looking for new participants.
Finals night next week is $40 per team (please pay me on the night) and everyone wins a prize.
Besides the BBQ we have as always on finals night: fruit and ice cream desert!
We look forward to hosting you all next week.
When I sorted the results sheet tonight I did not include the column which listed tonight’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place getters so they are listed incorrectly.
The winners tonight know who they are even if the rest of you don’t.

Well weren’t we lucky to be playing with Knightsbridge Green completely flooded at 2.30pm. Thanks to out greenkeeper Hamish Russell we were able to squeegee off the water and with no further rain we could play. A really nice evening.
Thank you to all who turned up with such a doubtful proposition.
Well with 1 round left in the round robin it is very open as to who plays for the trophy.
Dolls with Bowls remain unbeaten on 24 points – a superb effort ladies well done. They will be hard to knock out of the championship playoff.
The Wobblers and Bowling Besties with 21 points are in a strong position to play in the championship but Incredibowls and Guacabowly with 18 points still have a strong chance. If results go their way Young at Heart, WTS, and Unbelievabowl could make it.
Anyway there are prizes to be won in the Bowl and the Plate so turn up and you could be a winner. Everyone is a winner on finals night.
Thank you to all those who confirmed entry on finals night Wed Dec 9th, just a couple more to confirm and we will have a full house .
We look forward to hosting you all next week,

There are only 2 teams who remain unbeaten, congratulations: The Wobblers and Dolls with Bowls, however there are 2 team only 1 win behind Incredibowls and Bowling Besties.
Within striking distance and only 2 wins behind are; The Helensville Hackers, EDC, Guacabowly and Unbelievabowl.
With 2 more round robin rounds to go it is not at all clear who will be playing for the trophy, the bowl, or the plate.
Some great bowls being played but most of all you all seem to be having fun.
Enjoy the rest of your week and we look forward to doing it all again next week.

Round 1 Progress Results
Wednesday 11th March 2020.
Congratulation to tonight’s winners, and thank you to everyone for another successful night.
The results sheet has been sorted to show your teams placing over the round robin.
The 4 teams playing for the championship (top 4) are as I mentioned. 1st plays 4th, 2nd plays 3rd and winners play winner.
Those finishing in positions 5 through 10 will play in the bowl, teams finishing 11 through 16 play in the plate and teams 17 through 24 in the spoon.
The Bowl, Plate and Spoon are random draws.
The spreadsheet show you finishing position.
Finals night is a lot of fun as the teams abilities are better sorted so games are usually closer.
Thank you to those teams who have made an effort to make finals night as it is no fun if teams can’t or don’t make it and other teams can’t play as a result.
We look forward to a fun finals night next week the last of this season, with ice cream and fruit for desert.
