Round 7 Breakdown

Dear Members,Saturday produced mixed results with a solid come from behind win, an uncharacteristic home defeat and a competitive away loss.SIDE 1: After an even start, Mulgrave kicked away in the second quarter to take a 14 shot lead. With two rinks well down and two rinks providing hope, the second half saw a much more positive score line of 46-26. It was a hard earned and satisfying victory.RESULTS: UTBC 76-15 def Mulgrave 70-3. Currently 6th, we play 8th placed Mordialloc this week.SIDE 2: Playing at home but on the back green should not have posed any problems for us. But it seems it did! Level after the first quarter, we then lost all the remaining quarters by 8, 18 and 12 respectively.RESULTS: UTBC 68-2 def by Mulgrave 96-16. Currently 2nd, we play top team Dandenong Club this week.SIDE 3: After a slow start we came back strongly in the second quarter to be within a few shots at the halfway point. However we were outscored by 20 shots in the second half.RESULTS: UTBC 70-2 def by Narre Warren 92-16. Currently 8th, we play 4th placed Pakenham this week.WHAT DID WE LEARN?1. A good start is hard to beat. Often this involves being well prepared – both physically and mentally.2. When the opposition gets a good start, hang in there. Over 84 Ends the course of a game can change many times.

Jack Attack 2022 is here - Thursday 20/1/22

Jack Attack is a fun and fast-paced format from the traditional form of lawn bowls, aimed to encourage participation with non-bowling members of the community. Jack Attack is super easy to play!

It is a modified version from the traditional form of lawn bowls, with three players per team who each deliver their two bowls within an end, aiming to get as close as possible to the jack. This fun, fast game is coming to Upweybc and anyone can enter!

The delivery of all six bowls completes an end, where teams then change direction of play and re-position the jack.

The competition commenced in early February and runs through to the middle of March; 6 to 8 weeks is the suggested time-frame for Jack Attack to suit people with busy working lives.

JACK ATTACK is on its way! Stay tuned for further details!
