BOWLS: JBA Presidents Cup

What a special weekend it was for the Bryanston Sports Club, we were

honoured to host the JBA Presidents Cup, that and the Masters are the

premier events of the Bowling calendar. The weather was great, and the feel

of spring was definitely in the air.

Twenty four bowlers took to the greens for two grueling days. BSC was lucky

enough to have six players out of the twenty four, what an achievement. In

the ladies section there was Joyce Velempini and Ashleigh Silk. Both of them

doing very well. In the men's section we had, Sipho Velempini, Lethabo

Mathibela, Michael Mashabela, Jorge Ruiz-Mesa. All stars in their own


At the end of the tournament we had Joyce Velempini taking the silver medal

in the Ladies and Jorge Ruiz-Mesa taking silver in the men's section, and

that's not all, Michael Mashabela was awarded the Bronze Medal. Well done to

all of you, three medals in the Presidents cup is quite an achievement. To

Ashleigh Silk, Lethabo Mathibela and Sipho Velempini who also did us proud

by being selected and playing in this tournament.

Now not forgetting this kind of event cannot succeed without hard work in

the background. Thanks to Barbara Mazaris and her team who made this all


To Club Manager, Pat Carolin and his catering staff, well done, the food was

great as usual on both Saturday and Sunday. Players were greeted by the

aroma of bacon and egg rolls and Boerewors rolls on Saturday and these went

down a treat. Then on Sunday they did one better, bacon and egg rolls,

Chicken Prego Rolls and Boerewors rolls. Thanks to Chef Shepherd. and his

assistant Lendelani.

Then there was the Bar staff, who always work very hard at the end of an

event such as this.

Not forgetting the Ladies and gents who give up their days to sell tickets

and make sure al the order for meals are perfect, Maria and Juliet, John and

Wendy, thank you so much.

Now for the Bowling team of Nancy, Victor, Thomas, they are always there in

whatever capacity is asked of them.

Last but not least the Umpires, and Markers and JBA officials and to our own

Chairman Tony Mazaris for making this an event to remember.
