Neil Bullen is again the Uralla Club Champion after he outstayed Charlie Murray on Sunday. Neil first won this event in 1974 and here we are 45 years later and he is still winning. Altogether I think this is Bullo’s 31 championship between his three home clubs over the years, Uralla, Armidlae and Ballina. Congratulations Bullo and may you continue to play well.
Vicki Barraclough won the ladies again and Courtney Dade was the best junior.
The Nundle Burglar was at it again last Wednesday, this time Robbie Porter had 43 points to edge Trevor (Fairweather) Wilson into second spot, 39 after a countback with Popeye Whiting. The NTP on the 3rd was not won and Ted Redden plays with the orange ball next Wednesday after having 27 points.
Thursday saw most of the Uralla Vet’s travel to Walcha for the 4th round of the pennants and whilst the team lost some ground they still remain in third spot and in touch with the leaders, Guyra. This means that we will want every vet to play on Armidale on Tuesday 27th.
Darrell Carson 34, Chalkie Chandler 33 and Gary Dowdell 32 were the best of the Uralla players.
Saturday saw a stroke round for the third round of the championships and the days winner was Bruce (The Gnome) McMullen with 66 nett from the consistent Josh Clark 68. For the ladies Courtney Dade was a clear winner with a sensational net 61.
NTP winners on the day were RAB 3rd, Aaron Blanch, NAB 6th Crewy Cameron, 9th Mark Faulkner, 11th Paul Ketley, Rob Brown Denture Clinic 15th Darrell Carson and the Bridges Finance 17th Chalkie Chandler.
Sunday was the last round of the championships and Chris Chaffey made it three wins from starts with a net 64 and Aaron Blanch was the runner up with 68. Carol Shields won the ladies section and the NTP winners were, 3rs Splitpin Cullen, 6th Charlie Murray, 9th Josh Clark, 11th Mark Faulkner, 15th Tony Duff and the 17th Charlie Murray.

After more than 40 years of playing this game Lil Faulkner had a FIRST on Saturday when after a bad tee shot on 15 she threw her club, almost further than the ball and from this day onwards she will be known as LIL THE THROWER.
