SINDERS SHOOTOUT – SOUTH WEST ROCKS COUNTRY CLUB MENS BOWLING CLUB
The SINDERS SHOOTOUT has in the past been a 2 day event but in its 3rd year in 2016 it is changing to a 1 day event. This event is run in conjunction with family and friends of the late Don. Sinderberry in early-mid April. The event is a social competition with a 2 bowl triples format to recognise the style of play the Don loved so much.
Teams are nominated under the condition that each team has a broad range of abilities within the team. This year players are requested to nominate a team with mixed abilities.
The presentation occurs directly after competition play and the $250 Shootout on day 2.
Entrants come from far afield to remember Don. and to reflect on anecdotes of Don and Blondies time together.
Entry is $60 per team or $20 single entry (the organisers will make a team up for you.
To enter players can contact SW Rocks Bowls, Kempsey Macleay Bowling Club or Scott Franklin. Phone numbers are found on the Information Sheet above.
A highlight of Day 2 is “The Shootout”.
In The Shootout the players deliver 1 bowl from the green corner to the opposite corner. The bowl is an old bias bowl that Don. used to play with previously. The closest to a marker at the other corner received the prize of $500. In 2013 The Shootout was dramatic with a tense and excited crowd watching the final bowlfrom Scott Franklin almost steal the prize from John O’Neil. This year the last 10 players had several bowls within the yardstick but Bruce Daley prevailed with a superb delivery to within a foot to take the cash.
