- Round 9 Three big wins out of four 11 December, 2017
Premiers won by 37, Div 2 by 47 and Div 5 by 64. Third side after a quick start were gradually pegged back from just before the break to go down by 17.
The big move of the day was Div 5 who were up at the break by about 10 and then stormed home keeping the opposition to 8 additional shots while they piled on 62 to win by 64 overall. All teams in the side were up, but the big numbers went to Bill Furneaux’s rink with 22 up which was out done by Gary Brown’s rink 24 up. You’d think that would be enough to be the top rink for the week BUT NOT this week. Bryce Young and his rink of Cain Hanley, Barry McGregor and Ben Fearn getting 3 on the last end slipped past with a total up of 25.
The members of the winning rink will get their glass pots with a choice of tap beer next Saturday.

- Mentone lose all their points 1 December, 2017
Breaking news: — ladder leaders Mentone lose all their points from the first 7 rounds for playing an unregistered player. This has not benefited Melbourne as we beat Mentone 18-0 or Yarraville/footscray and MCC as they have not played them. All other sides picked up major points as they had lost to Mentone. This has resulted in big changes in the order of the ladder.
- Breaking news: $14,000 grant approved 27 November, 2017
We have just received verbal confirmation from Kelly O’Dwyer’s electoral office that the Melbourne Bowling Club has received approval for a grant of $14,000 to assist us in upgrading our kitchen.
The grant is as a result of the Federal Governments Stronger Communities Programme – Round 3 managed by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. Each electorate nominated applicants for the program. The MBC would like to thank Kelly O’Dwyer and her electoral office for initially alerting us to the grant and then approving our application to go forward to the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science for assessment.
We expect to have the paper work completed prior to Christmas and are intending to start the renovation, a complete refit, at the end of the current season.
- Round 7 a perfect score 25 November, 2017
Great day for Melbourne sides today. All sides up (for the second time this season). Yes that means drinks on the club!!!
The third side did it the hard way though. With 2 ends to play and the overall score having Melb 3 down, Ron Jackson’s rink level at 19 all and everyone else has finished. Melb with the mat brought it right up for a short end into the ditch. It worked scored 3. Scores level with one end to play. An exact repeat of the previous end gave Melb another 3 and 3 up on the overall board. 6 in the last 2 ends did it. The second time in two games the third side has won it on the last end. Fighting spirit and it’s never over type stuff but!!!!
Melbourne 2 in second position 24 points ahead of 3rd. Melbourne 4 up to 8th are the big ladder stories this week.

Who is the Melbourne Bowling Club
The Melbourne Bowling Club is more than just a bowling club it is a social club! It is arguably one of the most successful bowls clubs in the Metropolitan region with six premierships and seven runners up titles since 2000 in the Premier Division competition along with three State champion titles.
Not interested in bowling become a social member and enjoy the benefits of a relaxed friendly environment and members prices. It is becoming the gathering place for Windsor locals who like to have a quite break from the hurley burly of Chapel Street.
A place to drop in during the week after work before heading off down the C street.
Alternatively looking to have a function that is number one for breaking that awkward silence when acquaintances or work colleagues meet for the first time at a social occasion then barefoot bowls is for you!
