This game felt like it had gone on forever and was close the whole way through. It was 20-20 (playing to 21). My opponent with his last bowl drew in and rested for shot 6 inches off the jack. I stepped up and drew my bowl in for a toucha and rested on the jack. I went on to win this tournament thanks to that shot. SanMan October 22, 2007 Mid-afternoon and the sky overcast, a slight breeze blows across the green. After 18 ends of semi-final play it has come down to this. Last end three down in the game and down in the head. It does not matter how many. Only one shot to make and determined to make it I was. Full length Jack and my mixed pairs partner Shannon with three bowls one foot away from the ditch. Talk about a good time to place them there. Palms are sweaty, heart drumming against my ears; I had missed on my first three, 2 just inches wide and one just millimeter inside. My opponent trying to block or cover the back has been unsuccessful. There I stand on the mat in position, deep breath feels like I close my eyes but I can still see. I begin the motion and have gone past the point of no return. The bowl flies smoothly over the grass as I see the line. It felt good, real good. Silence from the crowd watching as we are the last game to finish that day. The bias kicks in and the bowl makes its move. “Grab It” I yell; it has got it clean. I hear that old familiar sound of the bowl and jack making contact “crack” and in a split second takes it to the ditch. The once silenced crowd in an uproar as I jump up towards my partner and celebrate Victory. A kiss would have been nice hahaha 😉 Ahh, there is some major excitement in this game. Now to show it to the world. SanMan – Life as a Lawnbowler Geoffrey Pershick October 22, 2007 Malky Taylor and I were playing the Royal City Pairs a couple years back – and in our 1/4 final match I called for what was to be the GREATEST shot Ive ever seen! We were 2 down in the game (12 of 18 ends played)and M.T was my skip… we had a chance for 5 with his last bowl but the odds were very low, however with 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th shot on our side I decided to ask for the impossible – a full length ditch weight bowl – to be played off center. He had to hit their short bowl square(about 5 feet from the ditch), drive it through a port and clip the shot bowl – sending both opposing bowls into the ditch. His shooter stayed on the green and we got our 5! It wasnt the shot that won the game, but it did change the momentum in a huge way and we went on to win the game and the tournament. Thanks for the memory Mr. Taylor!! Alex Scott October 29, 2007 Ahhh. What a good question. Well I have had about 4 or 5 Junior Mens Singles finals with my fellow compatriot Jonathan Pituley that ended in 21-20 last bowl shots. Very exciting bowling. However, as for shots, it goes back to the Prov. men’s pairs semis. Myself and Moose Jaw native Charlie Taylor find ourselves down 8 points with four ends to play against Keith Roney and Mark Sutyla. After a 4 ender, a 3 ender and a 2 ender we are ahead by 1 point coming home! With my 2nd last bowl (playing lead) of the game I draw and bury the jack completely. Position bowls were all we needed and we held on to win by two points to complete the comeback against a formidable opponent. My other fond memory was in the Rd Robin Under 25’s in 2004. The shot? Well, every single bowl practically. It was the best I have bowled. The opposition? Ryan Bester. It was a straight set victory and I eventually lost in a tiebreaker later on in the Finals. LAWN BOWLING IS WILDLY EXCITING PEOPLE. serious. Glen Taylor November 8, 2007 I bowled in the World Blind Bowls Championships in Sidney Australia in 1985. After having won the B3 Singles we had one game left to play in the Mixed Pairs. Australia and us had 3-1 records going into our last game. While we were playing England, Australia was playing Zimbabwe. While playing in the B3 sight classification Zimbabwe’s lead was a B1 and the skip was a B2. . Our only loss was a 23-8 drubbing at the hands of Australia. We think that there is no way Australia is going to lose to this team. If we beat England we are screwed re shots for/against. Therefore, we think we are playing for silver. Well, while we beat England 17-16,.the Australians TIED with Zimbabwe resulting in Maureen Sewell and myself winning GOLD in the Mixed Pairs B3. Ryan Bester November 12, 2007 My most memorable shot of late is at the World Team Cup in the semi final pairs match against Australia. Keith Roney and I were in the first end of the tie-breaker. We had played a pretty good end with bowls just going thru gaps to trail the jack. On my last bowl I drove for the jack to jump the ditch and have my bowl remove two bowls of theirs in the back and we would score 3 or a 4. 10 feet out of my hand I knew I had the jack and yelled for it to jump. Hit the jack on the side which took out a bowl of theirs covering the spot. My bowl took the two back ones out and went in the ditch where the jack landed right beside mine for a perfect 6 to start the tie-break. Tasha July 5, 2009 Hello I am just trying to find out some information or anything that anyone remembers from the World Championships in Syndey in 1985. My mother, Lyndsay Lucas (nee Akehurst) represented Zimbabwe in the Blind Bowlers compettion and won a gold medal. Please, I have looked on so many websites and can’t seem to find much. I have the medal still but as my mom has now passed away a few years ago and I am in Australia I would really like to see what I could find. Thank you so much in advance. :o) Natasha Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
