The Zone 11 (Manning District) Bowling Association Inc. is managed by an Executive Committee and Delegates (2) appointed from each of the 15 affiliated clubs of the Zone – known as the Management Committee.

As many within our Zone are aware, we had three of our junior bowlers’ in the State Junior Silver Squad, namely Lewis Williams and Luke Agar of Tuncurry Beach and Jake Reid of Pacific Palms.
It has now been announced, following the recent Junior Inter Zone Championship at West Dubbo, that we have another junior selected into the State Silver Squad to join the boys – Sophie Hawkins of Harrington BC.
The Zone Junior Committee is very proud of the fact that four of our eight juniors, who have been involved in various fixtures, etc., during 2016, have been considered by the State Junior Selectors to be selected in the Silver Squad.
On a per capita basis, this is great news, not only for the guys, their parents, their Clubs but also for the Zone. It is a just reward for their practise, concentration and showing competitiveness at a higher level. WELL DONE GUYS, the Zone congratulates you.
We welcome Noel James as our new Publicity Officer. If you wish to contact Noel his phone no. is 0421278806
Last weekend, 20th & 21st August, the second last Zone Championship for 2016 was conducted and finalised at Forster BC. I am talking about the Champion of Club Champion Pairs Championship.
The results have been forwarded to all Zone Clubs: the winners were Steve Hinton and George McCartney of Sporties Tuncurry BC. The Zone congratulates them on their victory and wishes them well in the State Finals in November.
Last weekend, 20th & 21st August, our Zone juniors played in the NSW U18 Junior Inter Zone 7 A Side Championship at West Dubbo BC, against some of the best junior bowlers’ in NSW and during “interesting” weather conditions.
At the end of the day, Zone 14 (Dubbo and west thereof) won the Championship Shield and we congratulate them on their victory.
While our guys’ were unsuccessful in their endeavours, they never gave an inch to their more experienced opponents. Indeed, one or two of their opponents received a shock and had to call on their experience to win their games.
Side Manager/Junior Committeeman Brad and I were proud of the guy’s efforts and are sure valuable experience was gained by their participation at this higher level of Bowls, which will assist them in their future bowls engagements.
