Morland wins Mixed Drawn Trips

Sun, 22 Jan 2012

The first competition of the year, the Mixed Drawn Trips, took place over the past weekend.

5 teams were entered and the format was a
 
Round Robin. Three rounds were scheduled for Saturday and two on Sunday, fifteen ends per game.

The weather did not play kindly and we had just just managed to complete the Second Round when the heavens opened, I mean it poured buckets!

The Competition Secretary and Club Captain made the decision calling for an early Sunday morning, with three rounds to play. Players retired to the watering hole and the braai got going.

Games were reduced to 12 ends for the remaining three rounds on Sunday.

Heading into the last round Charlotte Morland's team (Louis Carstens as Second and Mo Sadler as Lead) were unbeaten.
Johan Jacobs' team (Sheena du Toit as Second and Sandra Snyman as Lead) were lying second, but needed to win their final game against Sandy Joubert to secure the runners-up spot.
Things did not quite pan out for Jacobs as they went down by a single shot, moving Sandy Joubert (with Des vd Smit as Second and Hein Cloete as Lead) into Second Place.

Moland, Carstens and Sadler went undefeated to win the competition.



AeroBowls - New Player on the Market

ComfitPro, a leading brand of Bowls accessories and clothing, have stepped into the Manufacturing arena with AeroBowls (made by ComfitPro).

The claim by ComfitPro is that the AeroBowls will be the "world's most accurately made bowl ever produced".

World Bowls have recently approved AeroBowls as an official manufacturer and March 2012 will see the company launch their range of the three models (due to hit retail shelves by late March early April 2012).

AeroBowls Chief Executive Officer Walter Jacobs, together with AeroBowls Administrative Director Sharon Jacobs and AeroBowls Chief Operating Officer Rod Heaton said in a joint statement:

“We are delighted at the passing of this important milestone in our journey to bring a new level of technology and performance to the game we all love so much.

“The advanced technology we have brought to the manufacturing process - which is already used in biomedical, defence and aerospace industries around the world - means for the first time in the history of the game bowlers can purchase a set of bowls secure in the knowledge that every bowl in their set will be identical in trajectory."

Although ComfitPro have been synonymous with the distribution of Taylor Bowls, all indication from their Australian website is that they will be dropping the Taylor brand "We are giving up the Taylor Distribution and are now going to make the worlds most advanced bowls right here in Sydney.100% Australian made."

The new bowls have already been endorsed by the likes of Kelvin Kerkow and Brett Wilkie.
