What a fantastic money raising effort by Shane Knott. Details are below as is the link to his website. Any volunteers for am games???

Hi Everyone. Excited to announce that I will be attempting the Guinness World Record for the longest continual game of outdoor singles on the 14-15th of November whilst also raising money for the Gotcha 4 Life Foundation. The current record stands at 28 hours and I will be going for 30 hours. To achieve this record I am going to need the help of our awesome bowls community by of course having people to play against. Play will start at 10am Sunday the 14th until 4pm Monday and I will be needing people to participate in either 30 minute or 60 minute intervals for the duration of the record.
If you would like to participate please let me know and I will book you in a timeslot! Given I am trying to raise money for a fantastic foundation that is Gotcha 4 Life, we would like to possibly auction the timeslots off for $30 for 30 mins or $50 for 60 mins. This being said a donation is not a must and I welcome anyone who would like to participate in a timeslot to send me a PM. Click Here for the link to my page if indeed you would like to donate.
Thanks Everyone
The Scarborough Ladies classic 4's needs a couple more teams for Friday 5trh November. see flyer in the CARNIVALS area for more details.

VALE

19th October 21 - A giant of a man in bowls sadly loses his battle

RUMOURS

19th October 21 - Seems it's not too late for people to change clubs

TIPPING

16th October 21 - Yes it's back, tipping in the state events starts with the State Fours in 2 weeks time. 36 sections to try and get right, how many can you get? thanks again to the cork and Bottle in Bassendean, a $50 voucher to Mike Bessants establishment if you get the most right.
If you draw with someone else, then your selection as to who wins the event will become crucial as that will split the tied tipsters. If that cannot break the deadlock then we will countback to the highest placed of their winners selections. If that still cannot split them then we will do a random draw. So don't take your overall winner selection lightly!
Good luck to all in the tipping and for those bowling in the event.

DRAWS

14th October 21 - The State Fours draw has been published, 24 sections for the men, up from 22 last year and the women have 12 sections, up from 10 last year. Excellent turn out by the WA bowlers and showing some renewed interest in state events, which is great.

I'm not sure what Bowls WA might be up to but I hope we can allocate some of those resources and organise a 4-way series with NT, SA and Tas (hopefully here) as a replacement and see those debutants get a cap number and some state action this year.
