NEW RACING 8 

On Sunday, 9th March, a new Racing 
Eight was christened and named “The 
J. E. Goodwin” in appreciation of the 
work he has done as president of the 
Parents and Citizens' Association. We 
know Joe’s many friends at the Club 
join with us to congratulate him on this 
honour. 

* * * 

OVERSEAS TRIP 

Member Don Stait has left for a tour 
of the United Kingdom and Europe. Don 
i is the engineer and townplanner of 
* Waverley Municipal Council. We hope 
you have a successful trip, Don.

GREETINGS FROM AMERICA 

One of our American friends, Angus 
Parker, formerly stationed in Sydney 
with Caltex Oil, advises from New York 
that he is now shipping co-ordinator for 
Chevron Shipping Company, and sends 
his greetings to his friends in the Club.

OUR CONDOLENCES 

The Committee are sorry to have to 
advise the sudden death of the night 
porter, Bill Hayes. Many members will 
remember Bill who had been with the 
Club for over 8 years, and will be sorry 
to learn that he passed away while on 
duty.

A NEW VENTURE 

David Edmonds who, for a time man¬ 
aged Lowlands Stud at Richmond and 
later made a tour of the leading Blood¬ 
stock Studs of Britain and the United 
States, has now purchased a stock and 
station agency business at Berry on the 
South Coast. Our best wishes in your 
new venture, David.

APPOINTMENT OF ASSISTANT 
SECRETARY 

The Committee wish to announce 
the appointment of Mr. Alan Salthouse 
as assistant secretary of the Club. Alan 
is well known in the liquor trade as a 
hotel accountant and stock systematist. 
Welcome to the Club, Alan and may your 
association be a happy and successful 
one. 


OF INTEREST TO GOLFERS 

Recently returned from an overseas 
business trip, member Clare Higson, 
managing director of PGF, considers 
that the contract he gained to deliver 
almost $600,000 worth of golf clubs to 
Japan is the biggest single order for 
golf equipment placed with an Australian 
manufacturer. 

Clare also said big changes are en¬ 
visaged for golf ball manufacturers, and 
that moves were being made overseas 
to produce a ball of uniform size 
throughout the world. Construction is 
also going to change radically with new 
forms of moulding and new centres be¬ 
ing developed. In golf club construction 
today, the trend is toward the lighter 
shaft because it has been definitely 
proved it can give the golfer greater 
accuracy, Clare said. 

We think all golfers will agree that 
last point is paramount.

FATHER AND SON PALSHIP 

A sublime father and son palship was 
shattered when Club member, Desmond 
Gladstone Collins, died at the age of 50 
last month. 

He was the only son of Mr. Alf Collins, 
who was elected a member of Tattersall’s 
Club in 1927, joined the Committee 27 
years ago and was a few years ago elec¬ 
ted a life member. 

The late Mr. Desmond Collins became a 
member of Tattersall’s in 1950 and was 
popular among a large group of sporting 
friends. 

On completing his education he man¬ 
aged a Redfern picture theatre for his 
father and later moved to a Kensington 
Ten-pin Bowling Centre where he created 
a lot of excitement with keenly organised 
competitions. 

At his death he had a newsagency busi¬ 
ness at Carlton. 

Desmond and his father (known as 
“A.G.”) were seen together everywhere 
at sporting fixtures and social occasions. 
Said “A.G.”, “I preferred going with him 
on every possible occasion because we 
enjoyed the same outlook on every sub¬ 
ject we discussed, and I know that his 
youthful company has kept me young 
throughout a long life, made all the hap¬ 
pier for his presence. 

Desmond left a widow and three chil¬ 
dren, two daughters and a son aged only 
18, who, with commendable family enter¬ 
prise, was on a working holiday in Man¬ 
chester, Britain, at the time of his father’s 
death.

A GRAND EFFORT 

Club member, Sir Charles Moses, put 
up a good performance when he headed 
the “Walk Against Want" Appeal. Charles 
set himself out to beat his walk to Parra¬ 
matta last year. Despite the rain he 
finished the walk to Hornsby in three- 
and-a-half hours. Nice going, Sir 
Charles. 


PASSING OF OLD FRIEND 

Word has been received from the 
United States that Charles Sheerah, 
Senior, one of the original American 
executives of General Motors in Aus¬ 
tralia, died in Lovelock, Nevada, on 19th 
March last, at the age of 83. 

Charles arrived here in 1926 and was 
in charge of General Motors Spare Parts 
division and was a frequent visitor to 
the Club. During the war he was an 
honorory member, and served with the 
American Forces in the rank of major. 
Many members will remember this 
dapper and humorous American. 

He leaves a widow and one ,son, 
Charles, who was educated at Waverley 
College in Sydney, and later served as 
a captain in the US Air Force. To Mrs. 
Sheeran and Charles, Junior, we express 
our deepest sympathy.

IN HOSPITAL 

Members will be sorry to hear that

We wish you a speedy recovery Jack.

SIX MELBOURNE CUPS BY TRAINER MEMBERS 


The 17 trainers given a licence 
by the Australian Jockey Club who 
have become members of Tatter- 
sairs Club have rendered a good 
account of their stewardship on the 
Australian Turf. 

They have won every big race in the 
Calendar, some of them over and over 
again. 

So strong is their influence on the 
Sport of Kings that they have mustered 
a tally of six Melbourne Cups, while 
their classic winners could rightly be 
described as without number. 

The writer wonders who would guess 
the first of these trainers to join Tatter- 
sail's Club. 

It was Peter Lawson, away back in 
1937. 

Regarded at first as purely a trainer 
of sprint horses, he came to light in 
1956 with first a sequence of minor 
places in top staying races and then the 
major triumph about which all trainers 
dream — the Melbourne Cup. 

Evening Peal ran second in the Metro¬ 
politan and Caulfield Cup to a mighty 
stayer, Red Craze, but then turned the 
tables on him to beat him by half a 
length in the 1956 Melbourne Cup. 

Evening Peal proved the theory that, 
given the material, a trainer well versed 
in the preparation of thoroughbreds can 
prepare them for the distances they 
need — sprint events or the distance 
races which need so much more sound 
method and preparation. Peter Lawson 
proved that he had this inborn skill 
which is Nature's gift to all competent 
horse-masters. 

Now we'll set out the list of trainers 
in the time sequence in which they 
joined Tattersall's Club and magazine 
readers will find some surprises in it.

Maurice McCarten had major success 
as a jockey before he became a trainer 
of horses. His wins in the saddle in¬ 
cluded four A.J.C. Derbys and two at 
Flemington, and two Epsoms at Rand- 
wick besides innumerable other class 
races. 

As trainer, he won the Metropolitan 
and Melbourne Cup of 1951 with Delta, 
the Caulfield Cup 1947 with Columnist, 
two Epsoms, two Derbys, and again an 
enormous list of other events. 

As jockey, Arthur Ward was successful 
on Rising Fast in the 1954 Caulfield 
Cup, Cromwell 1952 Newmarket, French 
Echo in the Champagne the same year, 
Castillo the Queensland Derby 1953, 
and Artois the 1954 Carrington. 

With Foresight he has won 14 races 
as a trainer, developing the horse from 
provincial maiden standard to two 
highly impressive weight-for-age suc¬ 
cesses. 

Pat Murray won two Moonee Valley 
Cups, 1962 with River Seine and 1966 
with Tea Biscuit, and Tea Biscuit was 
second to Apa in the Brisbane Cup in 
a head and head encounter. He landed 
Brisbane Tattersall's Cup with Phar¬ 
macy for our Committeeman, rails 
bookmaker, Les Tidmarsh. 

He raised two horses from graduation 
form to the highest standards, Karendi 
and River Seine. 

Pat Murray is the trainer of so-called 
iron horses Pirate Bird and By Gee. 
Pirate Bird won the Sir Wm. McKell Cup, 
the Rosehill S.T.C. Cup and the Rosehill 
Jubilee Cup. By Gee the Rosehill Cup, 
besides 12 other lesser events and has 
had 31 minor places. Pirate Bird has 
had 10 wins, many in desperate finishes 
over a mile and a half after leading all 
the way. 

Pat got the knack of standing up his 
horses to hard and frequent racing from 
his father, Tom Murray, a notable Rand- 
wick trainer years ago who won 13 races 
(11 at Randwick including the Villiers 
and Carrington) with Native Son, owned 
by our popular Club member, Bill Kir- 
wan. 

Pat Murray, a close second to Deep 
River with a long-shot, Flywood, in the 
1952 A.J.C. Derby for Mr. S. E. Chatter- 
ton, who for many years was a very 
capable Chairman of Tattersall's Club. 

When Pat Murray later relinquished 
the training of River Seine, Neville Pren- 


dergast, formerly a Racing Editor of 
“The Daily Telegraph", took over and 
he won the 1965 Sydney Cup and the 
Doomben Cup as an eight-year-old. Nice 
work with such old material. 

Dick Roden made history when he 
won the Brisbane Cup, Metropolitan and 
Melbourne Cup with Macdougal, all in 
the one year, 1959. Dick formerly 
trained in Brisbane but quickly became 
acclimatised when he decided to move 
to Sydney and in the ten years here he 
has established a good stable. 

Dick was the first to train for million¬ 
aire owners, Mr. and Mrs. Stan Fox, 
When he bought a yearling by Wilkes 
from Huani for 1750 gns. at the 1965 
sales. Named Nebo Road, he was an im¬ 
mediate success in the Breeders’ Plate. 
Later, he proved difficult to train be¬ 
cause of a recurring leg injury, but when 
Dick got him fit and ready for the 1967 
Newmarket he led all the way and bolted 
in. In a transfer to one single stable for 
the Fox family horses, Nebo Road left 
the Roden establishment and although 
second to Manihi in the 1968 New¬ 
market, he hasn't done much since. 

Dick proved that he was good with 
stayers by his triple success with Mac¬ 
dougal, but Nebo Road, and a New Zea¬ 
land horse, El Khobar, proved that he 
was just as efficient with sprinters. With 
El Khobar he won the 1956 Doomben 
Ten Thousand and other rich Australian 
races. 

Fred Allsop’s university study in 
veterinary science was interrupted by 
World War II and after serving he fol¬ 
lowed family footsteps into the training 
field. His grandfather, John Allsop, won 
a Metropolitan and two Caulfield Cups 
with Paris. Fred had an unusual treble 
in the Flight Stakes for three-year-old 
fillies, winning in successive years from 

1954 with Travel Free, Brimses and 
Straightlace, and Brimses went on a few 
weeks later to win the Caulfield Thous¬ 
and Guineas for fillies. 

Fred won the Epsoms of 1952 with 
Highlaw and 1954 with Connaught, the 

1955 Metropolitan with Beaupa, but saw 
the latter beaten by a champion into 
second place in the Sydney Cup, 
Sailor's Guide, who subsequently won 
the $150,000 American International at 
Laurel Racecourse, Maryland. 

Fred Allsop and Reg Harris, another 
Club member, have been inseparable in 
racing and social matters for more than 
a quarter century. They were driving 
from a provincial race meeting when 
Fred lost an arm in an accident. 

Reg Harris was a capable hurdle-race 
rider, and even at the high weight scale 
for jumping events, had the perfect seat

on a horse. Just as efficient at training, 
he hasn't had a lot of luck but had a 
change of fortune when he won Tatter- 
sail’s Gladsome twice with Ulola, and 
the Furious Stakes with Blond Val. 

Increasing weight limited the riding 
opportunities of Tom Hill but he was a 
trier and his best reward was success 
on Summer Fair in the 1961 A.J.C. 
Derby. Blue Era was first past the post 
but lost on protest when it was revealed 
that Hill’s leg had been grabbed and 
held back in a desperate finish. 

Tom became a successful trainer 
right from the start of his change to 
that profession. He selected and turned 
out many successful two-year-olds and 
when Queensland millionaire grazier, 
Mr. W. G. Stanley, gave him carte 
blanche to procure good New Zealand 
horses he chose Rajah Sahib and Cyron, 
two of the most successful performers 
on the Australian turf in the current 
season. 

Rajah Sahib won the $15,000 Caul¬ 
field Guineas and $28,500 Cox Plate, 
and Cyron the $24,000 Geo. Adams and 
dead-heated the Australian Cup of the 
same value at Flemington. 

In a recent Magazine issue we told of 
the prolonged success of Fil Allotta 
from Advocate in the 1952 Derby and 
Culture in the 1953 Newmarket to 
Cabochon’s Epsom triumph of 1967. 

Harry Plant began something his¬ 
torical when he counselled restaurateur, 
A. 0. Romano, to buy a partially dis¬ 
qualified horse who was allowed only to 
race in a back-blocks district of Queens¬ 
land. The name was Bernborough, and 
after one unplaced start he won 15 
straight, embracing the Carrington 
Stakes, Villiers, Futurity, Newmarket, 
and the Doomben double with 10.5 and 
10.11. Harry had marked success with 
full brothers, Fine and Dandy, Don¬ 
caster 1961, 14 other wins and $86,880, 
and Time and Tide, 1965 Doncaster and 
$97,435. 

Harry won two Golden Slippers with 
Fine and Dandy, 1959, and Magic 
Knight, 1961 and he had an earlier 
Doncaster success with Bernbrook. 

In addition to two Melbourne Cups 
with Toporoa and Red Craze, 1955-6, 
Tom J. Smith has won practically the 
calendar since Tulloch established him 
in world top class 12 years ago. His 
record of 100 race wins a year and 
more than $200,000 dollars every race 
season puts him on a plane which calls 
for the highest praise but leaves no 
room for comment or criticism. 

T. J. Smith did it again. For Sydney’s 
last three big mile events he has been 
successful with the outsider of his 
numerous team of starters. With six run-

ners in the 1968 Doncaster he won with 
66/1, Unpainted; with four in the 1968 
Epsom he scored with Speed of Sound 
at 16/1; and with six starters in the Don¬ 
caster at Randwick on April 5 this year, 
he was successful with the 80/1 chance, 
Bye Bye. 

Cecil Rolls had to wait a long time 
for a horse of any value, although by 
shrewd placing, he made his second- 
rate charges pay dividends. But then, 
in 1964, came Eskimo Prince who won 
more money than any other Sydney two- 
year-old, $38,050, and at three, landed 
the Rosehill Guineas. He was sold at a 
high figure to America. 

You would hardly guess from Jack 
Green’s well-turned debonair figure that 
he was once a jockey. He was an 
amateur and one of the most success¬ 
ful of his time, and landed a number of 
Corinthian events at Randwick as well 
as on suburban and country tracks. 

His knowledge of horses made him 
an immediate success as a trainer and 
he quickly moved to a Randwick Num¬ 
ber One Licence, to become the trainer 
for the current Chairman of the A.J.C., 
Mr. Brian Crowley. For Mr. Crowley he 
trained the brothers, Skyline and Sky 
High. 

Skyline won the Golden Slipper and 
Derby and $44,918 before some 
mystery sickness ended his racing. Sky 
High proved best horse of his time with 
a Victoria Derby, an Epsom with 9.2 and 
$154,110. 

Kingster won a 1955 Produce Stakes 
and 1956 Stradbroke and many other 
races to amass $63,016 in prize-money 
for the Green stable. 

But the grand triumph of Jack Green's 
career was with a very moderate horse, 
Baystone, in the 1958 Melbourne Cup. 

Jack retired from Tattersall’s a couple 
of years ago owing to estate business 
pressures which kept him out of town 
at intervals.

SWIMMING NOTES 


Popular Max Sernack had a very 
comfortable win from Les Foley 
in the Monthly Point Score with 
Charles Coppa in third place. It 
was all over when Max lined up for 
the final. Congratulations as this 
was Maxie’s first Monthly Point 
Score win for many years. 

Star turns of the month were 
Bruce Cameron’s dual win in Brace 
Relays, new member Terry 
McCarthy winning his heat in 
24.3 secs., breaking his time by 
3.7 secs, and the “Faux Pas” of 
certain officials who were officiat¬ 
ing on the 4th March in presenting 
a heat win to Paul Blake and Terry 
Forrest. 

Following upon same it has been 
suggested by several members 
that a subscription list be opened 
for the purchase of a Chinese 
Counting Board and a magnifying 
glass of a very high calibre to be 
used by the “Gestapo” at all times. 

You may be assured that the 
members requesting the above are 
likely to remain on their present 
handicap for the duration of the 
season. 

In the "Native Son” Trophy 
(which has been presented by W. 
W. Kirwan for the past 20 years), 
the leaders are: Arthur O'Connor 
from Charles Coppa with John 
Connery in third place followed by 
Max Sernack, Norm Rogers and 
David Dind all close up. 

Fastest winning times during 
the month were Paul Blake 19.2 
secs., Charles Carpenter, 21 secs., 
Robert Hill 21 secs., Les Foley 
21.7 and Bill Richards 21.9 secs. 

Welcome back to Ian Rolle and 
Robin Spencer. Robin won a heat 
first up but was unable to take his 
place in the final. 

Welcome to new members John 
Tinworth, Harry Bladwell and Terry 
McCarthy; feel sure they will be 
registering wins at an early date. 
Just to show that attendances are 
not falling off, but improving, we 
mention the month’s average was 
52 starters with a grand total of 


75 members participating in the 
events. 

The handicapper’s pencil has 
been working overtime almost like 
a “yo-yo”. Amongst those having 
their handicap slashed were Terry 
McCarthy who lost three seconds, 
Bruce Watson and John Tinworth 
both losing a couple, John Ward, 
Laurie Bretnall, Peter Gracie, 
Charles Coppa, Charles Carpenter, 
Wal Tyler and Michael O'Dea also 
being docked a second. It would be 
advisable to have a look at the 
board as quite a few have been let 
out a second. 

It was very pleasing to note that 
Jim Coman’s son, Michael, hit the 
high spots over the last couple of 
weeks. Michael took part in five 
events at his school’s carnival, 100 
yards, 220 yards, 440 yards, 
breaststroke and butterfly; not only 
did he succeed in winning all five, 
but broke the record in each event. 
Congratulations to both Michael 
and Jimmy. Noticed that Michael 
O’Dea is aspiring for Municipal 
honors in standing for the vacancy 
in the Belmore Ward for North 
Sydney Council. Good luck, 
Michael, hope you are successful. 

Pleased to report that our genial 
Hon. Secretary Jack Dexter is 
making good progress; hopes to be 
back with us in a few week's time 
and wishes to thank each and 
every one for their kind enquiries. 
Keep up the old chin, Jack. 

Very sad item of the month was 
the passing of Des Collins, son of 
Committee member Alfred G., who 
has been the donor of our Cham¬ 
pionship Trophy for very many 
years. The swimmers paid tribute 
to his memory with a minute’s 
silence and to you, Alf, and your 
family, the members of the Third 
Floor extend their deepest sym¬ 
pathy and heartfelt condolences in 
your sad loss. 

STOP PRESS: In the final of the 
80 yards Brace Relay on the 
20th, Arthur O’Connor and John 
Ward were disqualified. Arthur, 
who was to go at the count of ten, 
was so excited that he left the 


board when the starter called Go. 
Relax, Arthur. 

Congratulations to Paul Blake 
on winning Balmoral Beach Club’s 
annual race over 1500 yards. 
Regarded as the world’s longest 
open-water swim, the race was 
originated in 1933 and the writer 
took part in the opening event.

A new star appears 

MICHAEL O DEA WINS "WINOOKA” TROPHY 


The “Winooka” Trophy competition 
was concluded with our new star 
Michael O’Dea having a most 
resounding victory over Robert 
Lipman our Club Champion. 

The final score was Michael 41, 
Robert 27. — This was a handicap 
event with the scores commencing at 
Robert Lipman (Scratch) v Michael 
O’Dea (+18). 

With a start of 18 shots to begin, 
Michael certainly had a big advantage, 
but his opponent was our Club Cham¬ 
pion and champions have the knack of 
overcoming such starts — that is why 
they are champions. However, in this 
match Michael put the writing on the 
wall immediately the match began and 
clearly demonstrated that he was going 
all out to win. He went into the attack 
from the first service. 

Robert also let it be known that he 
was keen to win. As a result every point 
was fiercely contested. It was handball 
at its best — Robert, our champion, 
played magnificently, Michael fought 
back like a terrier and in most rallies 
returned better shots than Robert was 
giving. He didn’t relax once. On the day 
Robert was outplayed — the scores of 
41-27 indicate how clearly Michael won 
and he deserves every praise for a fine 
victory. 

The umpire was Norman Rogers 
and I must admire the manner in 
which he handled the match—congra¬ 
tulations Norman and also to Sam 
Block who assisted as line umpire. 
There was a good number of club 
members present to watch this final 
but I was most impressed and happy 
to see amongst the crowd Cecil O’Dea 
Michael’s father—I am certain that he 
enjoyed himself immensely and the 
thrill of seeing Michael turn on such a 
grand display must have given him 
great satisfaction. 

In the matches leading up to the 
final the scores were:— 

Robert Lipman (Scratch) defeated 
Syd Kay (+12) 41-35. 

Michael O’Dea ( + 18) defeated 
Fred Allsop ( + 27) 41-17. 


From this you will see that both the 
finalists had stylish wins against sturdy 
opponents but Michael really put the 
writing on the wall with his slashing 
win of 41-17 over Fred Allsop. 


been off the scene for many months 
with a bad back, and it is nice to see 
him fully recovered and back demon¬ 
strating his old skill — we are sorry 
Stan that it had to be at your expense. 


Well that wraps up the “Winooka” 
Trophy and thanks once again to our 
grand supporters and trophy donors— 
Ted Forrest and Steven Blau. The boys 
had a fine competition and they wish 
to convey their very best wishes and 
regards to Ted and Steven. 

* * * 

THE “GOOD IDEA” TROPHY 

Have the boys been busy in this 
competition? I'll say they have — Ten 
matches have already been finalised 
and here are the results up to date. 

Charles Robinson (+13) defeated 
Bruce Cox ( + 25) 41-23. 

Michael O’Dea (+18) defeated 
John Brice ( + 17) 41-29. 

Norman Rogers (+1) defeated 
Bill Hannan ( + 12) 42-40. 

Arthur O'Connor (+18) defeated 
P. Christie ( + 20) 41-23. 

Ralph Davies ( + 6) defeated 

Bill Sellen ( + 13) 41-37. 

Bill Yewdall (+12) defeated 
Bill Orme ( + 18) 41-38. 

Charles Coppa ( + 32) defeated 
Robert Hill ( + 12) 41-21. 

Bruce Partridge (SCR) defeated 
Stan Heaton ( + 16) 41-38. 

Ian Rolle (+14) defeated 
Peter Barnes ( + 25) 41-36. 

Frank Burns (+15) defeated 

John Thirlwall ( + 25) 41-31. 

I have not enough space to cover all 
of these matches. I will give preference 
to the match between Bruce Partridge 
and Stan Heaton. This was a very 
close match indeed and was won by 
Bruce Partridge by the narrow margin 
of 41-38 after a very fine exhibition 
between two fine players. The rea¬ 

son I give this match first mention is 
because it marks the return to com¬ 
petitive handball of our past Club 

Champion Bruce Partridge. Bruce has 


Charles Coppa surprised everybody 
with an easy victory over Robert Hill. 
The scores 41-21 indicate how deci¬ 
sive the victory was. It was no fluke 
and you can look forward to more sur¬ 
prises from Charles. 

Bill Yewdall and Bill Orme had a 
grand tussle—during the match I 
thought that victory would surely go to 
Bill Orme but Bill Yewdall stuck to his 
guns and right on the post gained the 
win in a photo finish. 

Norman Rogers got the fright of his 
life in his match with Bill Hannan.— 
The scores 42-40 will tell you how 
close it was. Bill is an “old dog for a 
hard road” and is a worthy opponent 
for any one at handball. Norman says 
it was too close for his liking and does 
not want it over again. 

That’s all until next month. 
“Cheerio”.

GOLFING NOTES 


Bonnie Doon Golf Club 

The first day of the 1969 season 
saw 60 players gather at Bonnie Doon 
on Thursday, 6th March. 

By the end of the day it was quite 
obvious that there were some amongst 
us who had not been idle over the 
Christmas period. Mick Malouf set 
the ball rolling with a fantastic 43 
stableford points that warranted his 
card being sent to St. Michael’s Golf 
Club where he is presently on loan 
from The Lakes. ‘Tis rumoured that 
St. Michael’s may hang on to Mick 
for their grade team. 

Not all that far away on 38 points 
was Dr. Maurice Richmond, another 
Lakes member, temporarily at Bonnie 
Doon. Maurice said that it was Alan 
Black’s presence and threats that 
brought out the best in him. His score 
was good enough to win the member's 
event, and we trust that the sweet 
taste of success will bring him out 
more often. 

The best round of the day, and the 
visitor's trophy, went to David Brom¬ 
ley, whose 37 points off a scratch 
handicap leaves little to be said. 
David is one of the leading amateurs 
in the State, and comes from a real 
golfing family that has been identified 
with the Bonnie Doon Club for many 
years. 

The Four-Ball saw Jim Kennedy have 
an armchair ride with Mick Malouf, 
for while they won with 47 points, 
Mick’s 43 points alone would have 
beaten the 41 points compiled by the 
runners-up, Jack Beetham and John 
Rowles. 

As usual with The Doon the condi¬ 
tion of the course, catering and service 
generally left nothing to be desired, 
and we are very appreciative of the 
facilities given us on the day. This 
appreciation could be one-sided of 
course, as quite a group of characters 
including Rod Fisher, Phil Walley, and 
Alan Black, following a thorough in¬ 
spection of the furnishings, were told 
quite forcibly by chief steward, Stan 
Groppler, around midnight, that “We 
thank you, gentlemen, but the Com¬ 


mittee has no thought whatsoever of 
changing the pattern of the carpet.’’ 

Good to see so many of the regulars 
along, also those new faces, Dick Bell, 
Bill Creary, Cec Wright, Mick Malouf, 
Tony Pennyfather and Doug Jackson. To 
all those others—the infrequent starters 
and those who have not yet ventured— 
be in it. Two or three hours in the open 
with your friends, per month, is good 
insurance, and besides, “It’s later than 
you think."

FOURTH AUSTRALIAN TURF BOWLERS' CARNIVAL AT BRISBANE 


SUNDAY, MARCH 9 

Fourteen T.C.B.C. members jour¬ 
neyed north for the carnival led by 
President “Fuz” Porter, together 
with our chairman, Frank Carberry. 
The activities began at 7 p.m. with 
the official welcome to the visitors 
and although all visiting teams 
were down in numbers, it was 
pleasing to see so many old faces 
again, to name but a few, Art Cum¬ 
mings of Adelaide, Laurie Taylor 
Chairman of City Tattersalls and 
Eric Smith, Brian O’Donnell and 
Harold McGlynn, of Newcastle. 

MONDAY, 10th—Newmarket Bowl¬ 
ing Club 

First Test—2 games of 25 ends. 

President of Australian Bowls 
Council, Mr. Jim McCracken, 
pressed the starter and we were 
off! Tattersall’s team began badly 
and lost to City Tattersall’s. Lou 
Malouf then gave his ‘‘written 
guarantee” about the next game, 
and, surely enough we were suc¬ 
cessful against Canberra 

THURSDAY, 13th—Windsor Bowl¬ 
ing Club 

Final Test—2 games of 25 ends. 

Twelve weary T.C. bowlers went 
down to our hosts, Brisbane, in the 
first game and it seemed we would 
qualify for the wooden spoon. How¬ 
ever, after a blue swimmer lunch 
we battled on to record a win 
against the Adelaide Democratic 
Club. 

TUESDAY, 11th — Banyo Bowling 
Club 

Three games of 18 ends. 

Our old friends from Newcastle 
were in excellent form as were our 
next opponents, Tattersall’s Perth. 
So with a bye in one round, Tatter¬ 
sall’s were out for a “duck”. 

WEDNESDAY, 12th —Broadbeach 
Bowling Club 

Social bowls. 

Off to the Gold Coast per bus, 
President Harry Hood promised 
unsurpassed greens, catering and 
festivities and Broadbeach certain¬ 
ly “turned it on” with king-sized 


9th TO 15th MARCH, 1969 

steaks and trimmings, XOS tropical 
fruits, etc., all in all a very merry 
day, thanks to Harry and his excel¬ 
lent team of helpers. 

FAREWELL DINNER—Tattersall’s 
Club, Brisbane 

Having survived the Queensland 
hospitality at Newmarket, Banyo 
and Windsor we were entertained, 
wined and dined at Tattersall’s in 
the “grand manner”. To President 
Jack Delaney, Ron Clelland and 
Errol Stewart we extend our thanks 
and congratulations. 

WINNERS OF THE SERIES 

City Tattersall’s once again re¬ 
tain the trophy and no doubt Ron 
Young's boys will be the ones to 
beat at Perth in the 1970 Series. 

Those who were fortunate 
enough to stay on for the Tatter- 
sail’s Race Meeting had, we hear, 
a very pleasant and profitable day. 

HARRY DAVIS TROPHY 

Members are reminded that play 
for Harry’s splendid trophy began 
on 16/1/69 and the conditions 
are: 

(1) To be played over 13 play 
ing days.
