Answer: 1. The lead in a four when the team has the mat. Three deliveries out of nine. Jack and two bowls. 2. The three positions when playing two bowl triples when the opposition has the mat.
This weeks question: Who has won the most club singles championships for the Melbourne Bowling club?
- Working bee round up 15 August, 2017
Thanks to all those who contributed to the working bee. Geoff B and Janine R couldn’t make it on the day so did their share earlier. On the day although a bit short of the many hands asked for, we managed to knock off most of the tasks on the list although Byron is coming back for an encore to continue working on the billiard room windows along with Leigh and Chris sealing the floor in the disabled toilets having cleaned up and painted the front fence. Others deserving honourable mentions are Kevin O, Timothy C, Keith S and Lucas W who managed to fill up the 6 cubM bin in no time. Kevin L with his lazer measure re-arranged all the team photo’s above the bar to accommodate the two latest. Eric, Sue, Melanie, Gordon, Rocky and Peter were on cleaning duties inside and out. Jan gardened and Andrew attacked the overgrown shrubs out the back with gusto while Ewen wondered around pretending to direct the troops. Also thanks to the nine members who sent in their apologies. Overseas, out of town, family celebrations are acceptable leave passes.
Thanks to those members who attend the gardens throughout the year as that eliminates what would otherwise be a huge task.
The morning was finished off with a sausage sizzle and quiet chat over a few rounds of drinks provided by the club.

Our mission is to provide the club members all the assistance the club members need to grow as individuals and in turn grow the club skills for a successful season.
The structure of the coaching group is as follows:
The services we will provide:
- provide one on one coaching for members by appointment. Lists with time slots for members to book on Tuesday nights
- we are all available to assist members by appointment on a day and time mutually agreed
- on Thursdays we will organised activities to create a competitive and fun environment open to all members regardless of experience
- if there is enough interest we will run seminars on non technical aspects of bowls such as roles and responsibilities, decision making, focus / concentration / application
The key focus for success this year will be on the basics; draw bowling and correction. Key to our success will be the foundation of success …. a good start.

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!
