On Wednesday, we saw the Midlands Trials take place in Bergville. They were very different trials this year, as before any games were played, every bowler had to participate in an exercise that many had not done in years, if at all.Two circles were drawn on the green, one at 28 metres and one at 24 metres. The object of this skill is to draw your bowls into the circles, two bowls at 28 metres and two bowls at 24 metres. There was much laughter and some strong language heard, but it brought home the fact that if you do not practice drawing to the jack, and other disciplines, your chances for selection will be slim.Congratulations to our members who were selected. Men: Rodney Perrin, VJ Singh and reserve Bob Corringham. Women: Barbara Baleri, Fran Baleri, Janet Barnardo, Magriet Coetzee, Barbara Elworthy, Des Maartens, Veronica Malan, Liefie Oosthuizen, Nora Simpson, Shenaaz Singh and Maureen Streatfield. Reserves: Fathima Moola and Melissa Streatfield. Congratulations to these bowlers!
