26th November 2018

Terry’s grandson Mark Foster was runner up in the Vic Open                                                                  Mark started playing bowls at Chadstone as a 12 year old

 

Saturday Pennant at Round 6 Chadstone 1 with 102 points out of a possible 108 have only lost 3 rinks in these 6 games – a great effort

Chadstone 2 although 7th on the ladder and only winning 3 games are still well within reach of the four as there are 5 other teams who have won 3 or 4 games , above us. The good win against Richmond Victoria saw Richmond Union drop from top to 4th on the ladder.

Chadstone 3 have been our stalwarts – often playing below strength have continued to play the game in good spirits against difficult odds

Tuesday Pennant at Round 6 Chadstone 1 are 2nd on the ladder having won 4 of the 6 games although again there are 6 other teams within just a game so it is a very tight contest.

Our 2nd side Chadstone 2 are 5th and again there are 6 teams within a game. Although it should be noted Hawthorn on top have not lost a rink and Mt Waverley have only lost 2 rinks of the 24 possible rinks

On a bright clear day, Bowlers from Metropolitan Melbourne played 2 games of 12 ends.

On the day there was only 1 six & 4 fives scored.  Although draws do not count, it was just as well, as there were 2 draws with 6 ends won by each team. In Bev & David’s game it was a perfect draw – two 1s, 2 twos, 2 threes each – 12 each,

There were three 2 game winners with Kathy’s team >40 shots up the OVERALL winner, Runner up was Kerry’s just 8 shots up, unfortunately Liz’s Kortum’s team was only 7 shots up.  Although Bev’s team was also 7 shots up, they won 1st game and only drew the 2nd on the last end, so just a single shot separated 3 teams for the runner up.

Winners                 Kathy Maskrey, C Briggs, W. Frazer, L Burke

Runners Up           Kerry Disney, C Clegg, L. Clegg, K. Still

Best 1st game        Pat Joint, M. Connolly, D & P Summer-Hayes

Best 2nd game        Ann Dinn, M Bryan, T Guerins, Pam

This has been running for over 35 years and is not possible without the great volunteering efforts of our dedicated club members

Draft masterplan for Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park

On Monday 15 October 2018, Council endorsed that three concept site options developed for Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park be made available for comment as part of community consultation. A report and its attachments prepared for Council are available.

In response to issues raised in a meeting with residents on Tuesday 9 October 2018, a further concept site option (3a) will be developed as a variation to concept site option 3. This additional concept site option will also be available for consultation.

Consultation is expected to start in the coming weeks. More information, including responses to frequently asked questions and a timeline for consultation, will be shared once available.

A very interesting article in Stonnnington Leader 6th September regarding the proposed indoor sports stadium at Percy Treyvaud park. Copies at the Club and on Residents Against Stadium Facebook Page

It turns out Percy Treyvaud park is subject to covenants preventing removal of soil or excavation from the site. So Council will have to seek to have the covenants lifted or modified before any work on the site can commence. What does this mean for local residents?

Well…it means that some of us may be considered “beneficiaries” of the covenants – that is, residents benefit from the existence of the covenants and to change them could result in residents (“beneficiaries”) suffering detriment. Furthermore, identified “beneficiaries” are able to object to the removal or modification of covenants. Imagine a group of residents being identified as “beneficiaries” of the covenants on Percy Treyvaud Park, all banding together to formally object to what we have known all along is inappropriate development of an area already under stress from close proximity to Chadstone Shopping Centre, with plenty of sports facilities located just on the other side of the council boundary!!!

Stay tuned…this is surely an unexpected but important development for all of us…

So someone is now listening to those who actually do the RESEARCH – The RESIDENTS! Congratulations PERCY TREYVAUD PARK and it’s current sporting activities areas significant OPEN SPACE and impact on the wider community. Percy Treyvaud is a LOCAL COMMUNITY RESOURCE

We are urging all members, regardless of where they reside, to attend. The fight to

Well we weren’t given a choice, were we!
The Feasibility Study did not conclude that it was Feasible to put the stadium on the
bowls club site – on the contrary. The absolute absurdity of knocking down the
bowls clubrooms, bowling greens, etc, only to rebuild them again within the “affected
area” is ludicrous and wasteful.

indoor sports stadium without encroaching onto open space.  Click on link to read MORE …

Ladies Pairs Final 3 bowl pairs 18 ends

This was a replay of last year Lola Mc Bride- Bev Baxter vs Terry Foster- Irene Lacey

Terry – Irene won a 3 on first 2 ends, 6 up. Then Lola- Bev decided to party winning 7 of next 8 ends.   Score Lola- Bev 11 vs Terry- Irene 7, on 10th end. Terry’s grandson, Mark and his wife Jill arrived, Terry – Irene decided they needed to impress Mark & Jill and that the Lola- Bev party was over managing to win the next 7 ends. Lola – Bev did not give up, winning 2 on the last end but it was far too late           End score Terry- Irene 18 vs Lola- Bev 13

Congratulations – Chadstone Bowls Ladies Pairs Champions 2017 – 18    Terry Foster – Irene Lacey

 Mixed Pairs Final  3 bowl pairs 18 ends

All bowlers were vying to be on the Championship board for the first time Jennie Houston – Andrew Jackson vs Janine Halls- Nigel Maxwell. It was a game where Janine- Nigel have been bowling over 10 years while Jennie and Andrew less than 3 years. Janine – Nigel won 2 on first end but Jennie- Andrew won the next 7 ends Score  Jennie- Andrew 9 shots up. It was a very tense game with Janine- Nigel going on to win 7 of the last 9 ends, so that going into the last end the score was Jennie- Andrew 14 vs Janine- Nigel 13.  As the sun was setting in the west it was after 6pm, the dynamic duo of Jennie – Andrew were 1 up on the crossover Andrew  managed to draw 2 awesome bowls for a great 3 –  so 4 up – 17-13

Members Update May 2018

Member Update March 2018

The Save Chaddy Bowls Committee have decided it is appropriate to hold an open meeting for our members – to update and to provide you the opportunity to ask questions and suggest feedback.

As the local community has supported the Club so wonderfully we’re extending the invitation to them, via a letterbox drop, to also attend the meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Chadstone Bowls Club on

THURSDAY 22 MARCH 7– 8 pm.

 The State of Play

On 21 November 2016 Councillors considered a confidential report seeking approval to:

  1. Recommend a site for a new four-court indoor stadium within Stonnington to be used primarily for netball and basketball: and
  2. To seek endorsement to undertake a detailed feasibility study into the construction, management and operation of the stadium on the proposed site.
  • Chadstone Bowls Club did not fit the criteria Council had used to select a site but unbelievably was “endorsed as the preferred site”.

Documents from the 5 December 2016 Council meeting stated:

“the next stage of the Stonnington Indoor Stadium project is to undertake a feasibility study on the proposal to construct a new indoor stadium on the site currently occupied by the Chadstone Bowls Club.  The purpose of the feasibility will be to recommend to Council to either implement, amend, postpone, stage or abandon the proposal.”
To assist Councillors in their decision “Key elements of the feasibility study (would) include: Preparation of a detailed concept plan, construction cost plan and identification of any funding options”

 

  • Council has since admitted it did not include these “key elements” in the feasibility study.
  • They have voted to proceed with something despite not knowing what it looks like, and more importantly no knowledge of how much it may cost immediately or in the future.
  • Council did not deliver on their own resolution but has instead completely ignored “key elements” of whether the project was actually “feasible” on the “endorsed site”.

Instead, at the 31 October  2017 Council Meeting the following resolution was passed:

That Council:

  1. Note the contents of the Stonnington Indoor Sports Stadium Feasibility Study.
  2. Confirm Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park as the location of a new multipurpose sport and recreation facility to host:
    o Four Indoor Sports Courts;
    o Chadstone Bowls Club;
    o Chadstone Tennis Club;
    o Chadstone Recreation and Civic Club; and summer and winter season users of the sportsgrounds including Chadstone Lacrosse Club.
  3. Consults with Chadstone Bowls Club and its members to discuss their facility preferences, and confirm their preferred option and bowling capacity to accommodate its program of events and activities.
  4. Develop a Project Management Plan to initiate a Master Plan for Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park.
  5. Provide regular community updates on the development of a master plan and the opportunities for community input to that process.

We thought the Feasibility Study was a sham and have been proven right. A feasibility study by its very definition is to decide if something is capable of being done – in this case, was it viable, realistic or practical to build an indoor stadium on the Bowls Club site?

Council’s actions show it is not viable as they have decided to include the whole of Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park in a Master Plan. There is no way the site can accommodate/host all the users mentioned and their needs without encroaching on public open space.

Furthermore what started out as a projected cost of $22.5 million (Council attachment 21 November 2016) skyrocketed to $36.4 million (30 October 2017) and who knows how much this bigger and more extensive “Master Plan” will cost. Estimations are expected to exceed $50 million.

At the end of February 2018, Council sent out an “invitation” to local residents to become members of Council’s “Stakeholder Group’, although “preference will be given to residents who are not members of the community and sporting organisations represented on the Stakeholder Group”. 

If you want to apply, you will need to fill out an application form so the “selection panel” (of whom two out of the three were the most vocal advocates for the stadium) can consider your application. “Applicants may be requested to provide referees”! The selection committee will “determine whether interviews will be conducted if you meet the criteria”! You will also need “to sign a Code of Conduct” before you will be appointed!

First it was the “Farceability Study” now we have the “Shamholders Group”!

So where to from here? 

No doubt you all have many questions.

You want to know what this means for the Chadstone Bowls Club and if you are a local resident what this means for you.

Many of you would have received the recent leaflet from Buxton’s Real Estate inviting you to have your properties valued and perhaps make a decision regarding your properties before the stadium is built.

Come along on Thursday 22  March for an update and participate in a discussion about how this affects you.

PRESIDENTS TRIPLES SATURDAY 17th and 24th March (only 2 weeks this year as Easter is 31st March) 24th March will be OLD BOWLS ( pre Classic 2) https://www.dropbox.com/s/k7jg2ru51osr9n9/cbcPresidents%20Triples18.docx?dl=0

OPEN TWO BOWL – the draw is up

 Saturday Pennant

Chadstone 1 despite being in the top 2 of the ladder for 13 of the 18 games it was a disappointing result in the semi final being beaten by Hawthorn 1 (81/92). Hawthorn 1 won the Section Final on Sunday against Camberwell Central.

Chadstone 2 managed to attain a place in the 4 for the last 4 games of the season, so also played in the semi-final being beaten by Mt Waverley (61/66). Mt Waverley were on top of the ladder most of the season and also won the Section Final on Sunday against Auburn

Chadstone 3 comprised many of our novice bowlers and gave depth to the season without great success, hopefully the season will lead to better outcomes next season.

NUMBERS from Saturday Pennant (without prejudice for + against  eg 35/12 or 12/35)

Highest shots 117- 53 = 170 shots on the day – Chadstone 2

Lowest shots on a rink = 7/17 = 24 shots (21 ends) with 4 other rinks < 30 shots

Highest shots on a rink – 5 rinks > 50 shots

 

OPEN TWO BOWL – the draw is up

8 March

What a fantastic effort for a club that is under the pump from the Stonington Council, we have shown them what we are made of. We have pulled off the magnificent effort of having 3 sides in the finals from our 5 pennant teams.   

On the great news front the Mid-Week number ONE team played their Semi-final against Ashburton yesterday (Tues 6th) and had a fantastic win 73 shots to 44. They will now go on to play at Bentleigh BC on Thursday 8th against Armadale.

 The Chadstone Eagles number ONE side will be taking to the Chadstone greens on Saturday 10th for the first Semi-final against the Hawthorn Pirates.

As members of our club you are all very welcome to come along from 1pm to get behind your team, support your club and of course have a beer or two in the very convivial atmosphere that is the Chadstone Bowls Club and Chadstone Recreation and Civic Club.

Whilst the Top side is playing Hawthorn the number TWO Side will be up the road at Mt Waverley Bowls playing their Semi-final. If you are in that vicinity please call in to cheer them along as well.

Go Chaddy Go

Our Midweek team won against Ashburton today 6 March 2018 so will play Finals against Armadale at Bentleigh and will promoted next season.

Our 2 Saturday teams play semi FINALS this Saturday 10th March Chadstone 1 play Hawthorn 1 at HOME while Chadstone 2 play Mt Waverley 2 at Mt Waverley. Please call in and support them all. The Finals will be played on the Thursday and Sunday respectively.

SATURDAY  Chadstone 1 were a secure in 2nd but Chadstone 2 were 9 points in front of the 3 teams Oakleigh, Ashburton, Clayton, capable of replacing us in the four. Chaddy 2 only won one rink this week and Oakleigh, Ashburton, Clayton were unsuccessful too. The celebrations after the game culminated in a surprise 60th birthday party for one of our stalwarts Greg Brown.

The photos on the day -show a great shot by one of our novice bowlers Dennis – not quite a RESTING TOUCHER in the DITCH but 1 up. The other was nearly a game winning end 6 up apart from the opposition toucher in the ditch which reduced the Chaddy score to 2 up.

This game score was 71 to 76 Vermont South – who are 3rd

Chadstone 1 play Auburn, are a secure 3rd on the ladder and will play either Ashburton or Mulgrave 6th March. If Chadstone 2 win against Bayswater they will finish 8th

There will be nibbles after the game for those who wish to have a drink

Our next event will be Classic Day Friday 13th April with a flyer attached – obviously volunteers will be required to make this another great event    https://www.dropbox.com/s/s1cnwicnzf8p55o/cbcclassic18bb.pdf?dl=0

15 minutes of practice almost always improves your game as demonstrated by Steve Cook last night. Yes the kitty is there TOO!
