Combined team wins
Dave Adams trophy
By POPT Steven Adams
THE inaugural Dave Adams trophy for
Lawn Bowls took place on May 5 at the
North Ryde RSL.
This was a fours event with the emphasis
on participation and the promotion of Lawn
Bowls within Navy.
The event was named after WO (Rtd) Dave
Adams who started the RAN Lawn Bowls
Association in 2004, which has grown at an
exciting rate over the last six years.
The day saw some 16 teams contest in one
of four pools in the morning with a final series
in the afternoon.
The major prize was won by the Scrubbers
-- a combined team from HMA Ships Creswell
and Albatross made up of ABCSOMW
Damien Rex, WO Eric Lane, LCDR Kev
Hartigan and CPOMT Phil Carrett.
They defeated a little known but very spir-
ited FSU Kuttabul side 7-2 in a fantastic dis-
play of bowls.
The newly named Shakey Lake Plate went
the way of a well-balanced HMAS Darwin
side that upset a team from across the harbour
in HMAS Penguin.
The team was skippered by LEUT Arron
Convery who had an exceptional game in the
final of the plate, while the other minor tro-
phy, the Bowl, found a suitable home with the
engineering department, known as the Spanner
Monkeys, from HMAS Tobruk.
The Engineering Officer on board, LCDR
Lance Davis, led by example as he skippered
his side to an easy win in the other minor
The day proved more popular than expect-
ed, and plans for a larger venue with more
greens next year is in the planning.

DID you know that as a current or past serving
member of the Permanent or Reserve naval
forces, you are entitled to join as a full member
of the RAN Ski Club and that your immediate
family can become family members?
With the snow season about to start and
bookings being accepted, now is the time to take
advantage of the club's accommodation in three
lodges located in the Mount Buller (VIC), Perisher
Valley (NSW) and Thredbo (NSW) ski resorts.
Club President CAPT Peter Laver said the club
catered for everyone at all levels.
"Whether you are a beginner, avid amateur or
extreme exponent of any of the alpine recreational
activities, we can promise a warm welcome to
a friendly, informal, family environment," CAPT
"The club's facilities are regularly improved and
provide a comfortable, economic alternative for
members and their guests to commercial accom-
modation for a self-catered alpine holiday."
All three lodges are warm and comfortable with
spacious living, dining and recreational areas.
Blankets, doonas and pillows are provided but
you take your own sheets, pillow cases, towels,
food and drink. Kitchens are fully equipped and all
resorts have supermarkets if you forget anything.
Because the lodges are run on a self-help basis,
those staying in them are expected to do some
communal domestic chores as well as clean up
"This helps us to keep accommodation costs
down. Live-in managers in each of the lodges will
help you settle in and can provide advice concern-
ing resort facilities," CAPT Laver said.
Current and previously serving Army and
RAAF members are welcome to seek associate
membership. Applications for associate member-
ship by civilians are considered on their merits.
