- Saturday Finals 11 March, 2018
Two out of two wins in finals
Topside win qualifying final against Altona to move to Grand final. Final scores 89 to 80 with two rinks up and a draw. Altona to Play Deer Park next week. Deer Park defeated Clayton with only one rink up by 32 shots for an overall win by 9. Not a typical premier division score line.
Melbourne second side after a slow start came over the top of St Kilda (2) to win 85 to 74. Two rinks up.
Another big game for Melbourne 2 at Cheltenham tomorrow (Sunday) against Bentleigh (1) who beat Middle Park (1) 81 to 65.
A win in this game will secure promotion back to Division 1. It will be a tough match as this is Bentleigh’s top side and they are desperate to step up a grade. We have the talent and commitment to go all the way but the more support the side gets from members the greater the club spirit is displayed. Get out to Cheltenham to cheer on your 16 fellow members into Division 1 and the sectional play offs.
- Saturday Pennant Round 18 6 March, 2018
Top two sides in the finals.
Top side finished second overall holding Clayton out by 1 point and so go to the qualifying final against Altona next Saturday for direct entry into the Grand Final.
Second side finished top of Division 2 section 7 and have a home final against St Kilda 2 on Saturday for a chance to play in the section Grand Final the next day. (Sunday) A win on both days will seem them back in Division 1 next season.
Both sides deserve support from members. Go along and cheer them on. The Premiers are playing at Doncaster Green and the second side is at home on Saturday.
Third side finished sixth after an up and down season.
The real success of the season goes to the fourth side who at the halfway mark were fighting relegation prospects but in the second half with the new players improving each week came home winning their last 4 games to come fifth just out of finals contention.
The top performing team of the round was Arnold O’Brien’s crew of Gordon Lowing, Geoff Boucher and Rick Lawler winning by 27 shots,
- Water Tank Street Art 25 February, 2018
We now have street art contribution to the Windsor street art scene. As of Friday (16/02/2018) respected street artists Mikeyxxi and LuckyLucks ably assisted by Starsky on backgrounds created the scene facing the walkway coming from Windsor railway station. Great work Guys.
- Saturday Pennant Round 16 18 February, 2018The fourth side was the only shining light this week with a good win away over Glen Eira McKinnon. This moves them into 7th place with the opportunity to rise further over the last 2 rounds. The highlights from the fourth side was the massive turn around by Justine Stokes team (Shanon Glover, Peter Curwen-Walker, Janine Rischin) being down too many to mention (9) at the break and coming back and winning by 24 to 20. With such a good win of course the glasses went to a fourths team of Simon Cannington, Seth Green, Leigh Clark and Gary Brown. Winning by 13 27 to 14. Well done to all the fourth players.The rest of the sides struggled. The Premier division led early but faded badly and if they are not more focused will lose their top 2 position for the finals. It is starting to look like an end of season premiership blues slump. Next week playing in doors at DeerPark will be a test of their mettle.The second side fell to the slickness of the St Kilda greens although Fluffy’s team (Sara Rodger, Scott Senior, Ben Thomason) came from a poor start to defeat our friend Macca convincingly 25 to 15 and so being second best team in the club overall. They seem to like being bridesmaids.The thirds two weeks ago were looking at a potential late run for the finals but two losses on the trot has scuppered those ideas although statistically it is still possible. The only highlight was Ron Jackson’s team Michael Silverstein, Alan Burness and Trent Wavish coming from behind late (21-18) to take the sides only points for the day.Time to all bounce back and finish off the season the way we started. WITH WINS!! GO DEE’s

- Saturday Pennant Round 15 14 February, 2018A mixed day for the club. An excellent win by the fourth side defeating 4th placed Elsternwick Club at home. The second side is continuing on its merry way with a clean sweep of the board and yet another best rink going to the side.This weeks winners of the glasses is Byron Coonerty, Karina van Weel, Matt Green and Jerome Cole with a convincing win of 19 shots up.The same names seem to keep popping up to take off this prestigious weekly award. Closest to them was the 3rd side team of Lizzy Lamb, Chris Hutchinson, Dean Thomas and Ewen Wilson with 13 shots up.Some wins away from home would be good to see this week.
