The Men’s selectors have posted teams chosen to play in pre-Xmas inter club events. These are shown on the whiteboard in the club rooms. Included are teams for Senior, Junior and Mixed competitions. The mixed events, which are played on Monday and Tuesday mornings are the Over 60’s Pairs and Over 60s Triples. As these are mixed teams, selections were made with input from both the Men’s and Women’s selectors. The teams for the Open Double Men’s Pairs played on a Wednesday morning are also on the board.

The Men’s Saturday inter club events comprise one 3x4s team and three 2x4s teams. The selectors have endeavoured to enter as many teams in the various Saturday competitions as there were members entered to play in them. As a consequence we have only one or two reserves for the total number of teams, scarcely enough, and would greatly welcome a few other members, prepared to be an emergency, to add their names on the whiteboard please.

In selecting teams we have tried to ensure bowlers have been picked for the events they chose to enter. Some members entered several mid-week competitions but to provide opportunities for everyone to bowl, some will have likely missed out and are listed as reserve. Thanks to Bernie Blackmun and Ken Lee for taking care of selecting the Junior competition teams. We have a very strong contingent of Under 5 bowlers indeed.

Halswell has never had such a large number of teams entered in the various competitions, including Mixed and Junior as we have entered this pre-Xmas season. Selecting and positioning bowlers in teams has been a bit of a challenge but it’s great to see the club having such strong numerical representation.
