DIV 2 PENNANT – Crows Nest Shines

The Crows Nest Bowls Club has only ever been successful in the DDBA Pennant Competition on two occasions in the last half century.  We won Division 4 in 1970-71.  And then came back to beat all-comers the following year after being promoted to 3rd Division.  It probably has to be appreciated that our run of good luck occurred after a brief 3 years of competition – we’d only formed the Club in 1968.  At that time, we had so many members who wanted to play pennants, that we were knocking them back with a stick.

But as you know, it can be a long time between drinks sometimes!  Although we’ve continued to represent the Club most years, we haven’t managed to enjoy the success of those early days.  That is, until 2019!  With a proud win/loss ratio over the first seven weeks of the competition, we entered the semi-finals on top of Division 2.  Even though we won the semi, and weren’t quite good enough in the final – we’ll live off the 2019 achievement for some years to come.  Well done to all of Crows Nest’s team players.
