The Masters Triples at Bassendean is only a month away and already half full. Get your entries in now online at www.bowlswa.com.au

TIPPING

14th October - An update with the tipping, Pam Chalmers is out so Max Carmichael is banking on Haydn Smith to get the job done, but Neil Minchin has 2 chances in Krstic and Trewhella, but he still needs at least to get a winner. My rules stated that you must get a winner right to break the deadlock, so if by chance none of our tipsters winners win, then I will do a random draw. But it is quite exciting and we wait until the 27th to see who wins the State Fours and wins our tipping competition.

For those teams at Bassendean Saturday might want to consider dropping in for tea after the Fours competition, and in fact any time you are in the area, why not drop in and say hello to Mike and have a wine or 3 with him.
If you have already tipped but now might take it a bit more seriously, you can re-send your tips and I will override your earlier selections. To break the deadlock the selection you make for the winning male and female bowler will be used. If we are still deadlocked then I will get Mike to do a lucky draw. I will announce the winner next week. Good tipping!

Check out the great advertisors, all are bowlers or associated with bowlers and it's growing, if you need a service then look at our advertisor page first!!

MENS PENNANTS

19th October 19 - I have done my preview for the season ahead for Premier League. It's going to be a tough year for predictions, and I could easily be way off the mark.

RESULTS - THE EVEREST

21st October 19 - Congratulations to Nathan Rice for winning the $96k Everest on Sunday. He defeated Blake Nairn 31-18 in the final. Awesome job by Blake to be the best WA player after beating Kevin Anderson in the semi and Ryan Moyle in the quarters. Nathan Rice though fully deserving of the title, beating Ben Twist and Aron Sherriff. I didn't see the game but it looks like he was in fantastic touch all day. Also well done to Matt Ayres who received the Daniel Patterson young achiever award for the carnival.
Well done again to the team at Dudley Park for another successful Everest carnival, can't wait for the next one!

Final - Rice bt Nairn 31-18
Semi - Nairn bt Anderson 25-17, Rice beat Sherriff 25-13
Quarters - Anderson bt Bester 25-19, Nairn bt Moyle 25-24, Rice bt Twist 25-19, Sherriff bt Kelly 25-22

20th October 19 - Day 3 and we are down to 8. Knockout stage today, who will climb the mountain and win The Everest!

Section 1 - Kevin Anderson wins both of his games over Barrie Lester and John Slavich
Section 2 - All 3 players winning 1 game here but it will be Ryan Bester to proceed. A good win by Cody Packer over Bester will give him some confidence for the upcoming BPL
Section 3 - Blake Nairn wins both of his game in the all WA section
Section 4 - Ryan Moyle in probably the upset of the tournament so far in defeating Ray Pearse to remain in the hunt. Our final female is also out, well done to Hailey Packer
Section 5 - Nathan Rice winning both of his games
Section 6 - Ben Twist wins this tough section, defeating Australias gold medallist Aaron Wilson 21-20. Bill Brandsma a worthy note with 2 good games against high quality opponents
Section 7 - Aron Sheriff winning the crucial game over Brett Wilkie to win his section
Section 8 - Gary Kelly showing some real steel to beat David Opie 21-20 and win both games

17th October 19 - The Everest of Bowls starts today with Sections 1-12 in action. The draw can be found here. It is a star studded line up, probably the best ever collection so far of world talent and the event gets bigger and better every year.

If you are travelling to Darwin, why not check out the Paravista Motel.

RESULTS

5th October 19 - Awesome news yesterday with Jack East winning gold in the Under 18 singles event. I wasn't able to see the game but I do know the scores were locked at 14 all before East piled on the next 7 shots to take the title. Now playing in the Premier League for the season ahead at Osborne Park after learning his trade at Rossmoyne, Jack certainly has a bright future in the game
The Boys Fours also came home with medal, they took out bronze with a 16-10 win over Qld. The team of Marcus Simpson, Patrick Quinlan, Segan Pasalich and Cory Day performing very well. Unfortunately for WA they were only medallists this year, but I am sure the Girls performed really well in what appears to be a very inexperienced team and they will be better next year with another year of bowls under their belt.

4th October 19 - It's been a grim junior series this year, but we do have Jack East playing for Gold in the Singles and Boys Fours are playing for bronze. Only 1 shot off playing for gold as well, stiff by the boys there. good luck to them and all the team as they jockey for final positions today.
