Mystery Bus tour – May 2013

Once again a bus full of fun seekers and adventurers put their trust in the Social
Committee of the Ballina Mal Club. Once picked up and settled onto the bus the night seemed to go Very Quickly!

Entree’ was at the Byron Bay Golf Club nestled in the hills on a beautiful moon filed night, one could even make out the glistening pools of water courses.

This was a perfect opportunity to wish Terry a Happy Birthday and the singing was in fine form. The form was encouraged even more by a steady supply of champagne and beer on the bus which helped to keep the travellers warm on a chilly night!

After making our way to the dinner venue of Muoi’s Feast at Byron Bay we were all pleasantly surprised by a quality choice of main and dessert.

Many thanks to Eric who again steered us through the night and safely dropped us all of within Cooee of home.

Che Bon April 2013

April 20th proved to be a coolish clear night with a fine  assortment of “French -looking “people arriving at Che Bon restaurant in Tintenbar. I had heard some people telling the staff that it was the best meal they had ever had!! I can personally vouch for the duck risotto and a little drop of the red wine.

The new season tricked a few people and blankets were quickly ushered to some who obviously required a little more wine to help with the inner heat! Our hostess promised to have heaters on next time!

Our independent judge was taken with the obviously false moustache of Steve,and someone in a red coat and white hat, ho received fabulous prizes for 1st and 2nd respectively- donated from our very own Secretary and nearest to french person (apart from Mel) that you could get.-Mick Wilson.

Thanks to the fun- loving Mal Club members for their support and attendance.

Social Report – Bare Foot Bowls @ Cherry St Bowling Club – 16/3/13

It was a fine and sunny afternoon on the 16th March when the intrepid Ballina Mal Club members tried their” hands” at Bowls. Our major sponsor- Ballina Cherry st Bowlo was very happy to have us and we took full advantage of their facilities as you can see from the photos the competition was hot!

The stand outs were Teams of Big Col and Bob, Kerry and Peter , Bill and Little Col, Mick and Phill. Kerry and Peter retired due to injury leaving clear winners of Bill and Little Col who have yet to sample their winnings of MI Thai voucher (they will share graciously with their wives who let them win!)

The Cherry St Bowlo lived up its name for great pizzas and cold beers, the band didn’t sound too bad either.

April Competition Round a great day!

The April round for our mal club meeting saw 20 surfers turn up to compete in clean small waves on a fine and sunny morning. It was good to get going again after the previous months comp was cancelled due to the very dirty water coming out of the river due to all the rain. The club was fortunate to have such a nice day with the noticable change in the season being felt with a light sw wind early in the morning.

The results for the day are as follows:

1st Division Placings: 1st Kai Pick, 2nd Frank Mcwilliams, 3rd Warren Wyatt, 4th Paul Abbott, 5th Alan Rich.

2nd Division Placings: 1st Geoff Rees, 2nd Kerry Wilcox, 3rd Phil Calnan, 4th Chris Bull, 5th Steve Watts DNS.

3rd Division Placings: 1st Col Harper, 2nd Mick Wilson, 3rd Bill Webster, 4th Marg Bryant, 5th Brian Fryer.

4th Division Placings: 1st Mick Calnan, 2nd Paul Bioletti, 3rd Peter Briggs, 4th Jan Webster, 5th Kim Kortick.

Congratulations to all the 1st place winners with Col Harper upsetting the field to take out 1st place in the 3rd division. Well done Col. Next month I shall be away and the running of the comp will be in the capable hands of Frank who I am sure will do a more than capable job.
Until I see you all for the June round,
happy surfing.
Captain Bill.
