Teams abandon matches due to extreme heat

IT WAS an eventful midweek pennant for round 13 was held on Monday, with a number of teams having to abandon due to temperatures soaring above 36 degrees according to the heat rule for the Ballarat District Bowls Division.

In division one, points were shared as more than half the section didn’t complete the round.

In divisions two, three and four, the majority of games were played out so points were issued. 

THE Heartbeat mixed fours were held on Sunday, raising money for the two hospitals to purchase cardiac equipment. 

The weather was warm and mild, kind to the 200 bowlers that enjoyed the day.

CENTRAL Wendouree’s Kerry Watt will represent the Central Region the Bowls Victoria state novice event on Sunday at Clayton Bowling Club. 

Good bowling to Kerry.

THE BDBD Novelty fours ladies’ event will be played tomorrow with results published next week. 

BOWLERS need to indicate if they are interested attending the Australian Open on February 22 so reservations can be made. Cost should be about the same as last year. 

PREDICTIONS:

Round 14 will be a very competitive round after many matches being abandoned in round 13.

In all divisions the top four has not changed much, so this round could have a huge impact. 

Division one: Central Wendouree v Avenue, Central Wendouree is a very strong side and should win.

Division two: Creswick v BMS, Creswick will win in a very tough game.

Division three: Daylesford v Invermay, Daylesford will win on their home ground

Division four: City Oval v Victoria, City Oval has a strong over all team and should win. 

Until next week good bowling keep near the jack.
