Super Series and Beyond

Last week, Moonta hosted two highly successful days of the Seniors Supa Series Copper Coast event.
But, before we get to that, here are some other important things:


We now have a potentially life saving defibrillator in the Clubrooms.  The defibrillator guides people through its use and CPR. Hopefully, it will never be needed but, if it is, it would be good if as many members as possible were reasonably confident in its use.

To this end, there is a link below to a 5 minute video on the use of the defibrillator.  Just click on the “play” button in the icon (or the link below) and you will be taken to a new web page where the video should start playing.

Disappointing Decision

Following the withdrawal of the Wallaroo Mines 1st Division side from Saturday pennants, the NYP Association on Sunday decreed that Moonta, this year, will have two 1st Division sides, one 2nd Division side and two 3rd Division sides.  This was not the outcome that we had hoped for, but we have no choice now but to go along with what has been decided for us.

Volunteers Recognised

Bowls SA held a day of recognition for volunteers in conjunction with the opening of the Seniors Supa Series at Wallaroo last Monday.  Two of our members were awarded framed Certificates of Appreciation for their tireless efforts over the years for the Club, the local association and the Northern Region.  You will probably recognise them in the mugshot below.

Harry and Dasher – Well deserved

Opening Day

Don’t forget the official opening of the new season next Monday at 2:00pm.  Please bring a plate to share for afternoon tea.

Champion of Champions


The regional final of the Champion of Champions Pairs was held at Wallaroo on the 17th of this month.  Despite playing on the blue carpet, Lyn Wildash and Sharon Cavanagh cruised to a comfortable victory and can be seen above holding the trophy.  Well done ladies – a fantastic effort.

Friday Dinners

The Moonta Master Chefs will again be running hamburger nights on the last Friday of each month starting in October (but not in December).  As well as this, the Moonta Master Chefs will also be offering a chicken roast on the second Friday of each month.  Cost will be $5 each time.  Keep an eye on the notice board for booking sheets.

Please note:  these nights are run with tight financial margins so, if you put your name on the list, please make sure you turn up.

Rump Raffle

Starting on the first Friday in October, there will be an early tray draw, for a tray of rump steak.  The number card will be on the bar, tickets will be $2 each and the draw will take place at 5:00 p.m.

There will be other draws at 6:00pm, along with the members draw and a revamped key raffle.  See you there!

The Supa Series (at last)

The 2017 Seniors Supa Series was held at Moonta on Tuesday & Thursday last week with Wednesday’s play being at Wallaroo.  Moonta’s greens were filled to capacity on both days with 128 bowlers from all over the State in attendance in good weather.  Well done to all the volunteers on the greens, in the kitchen, Bar & the Tournament Committee who did a great job.  Thanks also to Bowls SA Seniors Committee members headed by Mike Wildash for their work.  Lots of pictures of the event follow below.

The kitchen crew.  There would be no event without them!
