    Re: Bowls slipping in game

    Either you have dry hands, as do I, or your bowl is too big.

    If you tend to get dry hands, use sorbelene, or the like (some sort of hand lotion), a little while before bowling.

    If that isn't...

    Re: Skips to retain score cards

    I agree. It has been a pain. The old problem of forever yelling out to the second for the score has returned. I'd rather have the card. My opinion has hardened after returning to the old rule.

    Re: Marking the Card

    I could not have put it any better, Swifty. The imagined "silent majority" (read; whingers) have had a win. What's that I hear, another squeaky wheel getting some grease?

    There are many more...

    I've been in Esperance now for over 6 years and we have two woven carpet greens. Both run at around 17 secs depending upon weather conditions. Both have a true line and no discernible runs. They were...

    RIP Gough

    We've lost one of the greats. He summed it up best, himself,


    "I've never said I'm immortal. I do believe in correct language. I'm eternal; I'm not immortal."


    Vale, Gough.

    Re: New Bowler need some advice

    Be very wary of tight bowls, especially in smaller sizes, if you play in windy conditions on a regular basis. Here in Esperance, we play on 17+ sec greens and those that jumped at the Aeros (all...

    Good one, Swifty!

    I particularly like 3 & 4.

    Good work.

    Re: Skips to retain score cards

    We have a lot of old blokes over here who hate any sort of change most of the time, but who keeps the card is just not an issue. I can't see how people can get their knickers in a twist over a minor,...

    Re: Skips to retain score cards

    I agree with all of the above. Those who carry on about seconds having the card do seem to ignore the fact that skips keep it in ALL other formats.

    Some people just love their teacup storms.

    Re: Shoulder Op

    Get an MRI. That is the most accurate way of determining the damage.

    In my case, I probably left it a little late; twenty years too late.

    Re: Shoulder Op

    I got rid of the sling yesterday, by the way. Now the rehab starts and it's almost as painful as the bloody injury!

    Re: Shoulder Op

    Everything is on track. It's just that it takes a lot of time; in the sling for 6 weeks and more than likely, 6 months of rehab.

    Re: Bowls for synthetic surface.

    I play on 17 sec + carpet and use the Almark Edge Plus. They are the best bowl I've used.

    So basically, it's what you feel comfortable with using.

    It worked for the new knee, so I'll just have to grin and bear it. I'll be doing everything they say, Swifty.
