Men's Championship Singles 17/03/2019

Congratulations to Alec Gryta on winning his second Men’s Club Championship Singles title.

Alek defeated Louis Beurteaux, winner of the Club Men's 100 Up Singles, 25-18 in a tense and absorbing final, with both players providing a wonderful exhibition of draw bowling. Gryta started well but Beurteaux then worked his way back into the game. With the score 19-16, Beurteaux was holding three close shots 10–15 cm from the jack, before Gryta with his last bowl drew the shot cold changing the momentum of the match. Two ends later Beurteaux was again challenging with one shot nearly touching the jack only to see Gryta with his last bowl removing it clean, converting it to two up, which again stopped Beurteaux narrowing the margin. It was an awesome game, well done to you both.

In the semi-finals, Alek beat Terry Cranswick 21-9, whilst Louis also had a good win over Mario Van Bemmel 21-7.

      Men's Championship Singles finalists: Alek Gryta (winner) and Louis Beurteaux (runner-up).

Our Thanks to the Green Keepers

Throughout the season the greens have been beautifully prepared by Chris McKenna and his team of helpers, and we thank them all for their great work. We have received many compliments over the season from visiting players on the state of our greens, a testament to the quality of the surfaces that have been provided.

Beer of the Month. Beer of the month is Toohey's Extra Dry, which is on special for just $7.00 a pint.

Glassware. The Club is considering changing its glassware, mainly for beer and cider, from middies and pints to middies and schooners. It is felt that pints are too large for many drinkers and that the drinks can get warm or flat. We also think the pricing of schooners may be more attractive than pints. If anyone would like to comment on this proposed change, we would welcome your feedback by email.

Smoking Policy
The Club has adopted a new formal Smoking Policy. It is hoped all members and their guests will embrace this commonsense approach to dealing with smoking rules surrounding clubs.

Hopefully, enforcement will not be an issue, but we would like to see all members, not just our staff and Committee, taking an interest in compliance.

The Smoking Policy will be placed on Club notice boards for all to read, or click here to view
Around The Club

Thanks to all those who helped out on the stall, which hopefully will become an annual event.

Vivian's Market Report

Easter Extravaganza Community Event for the Mosman Park Community!

A special reminder to all members down at the Bowling Club, that our 5th Annual Easter Egg Hunt to raise money for Telethon is coming up this month. So be sure to bring the kids and the grandkids down to the Russell Brown Adventure Park (80 McCabe St) for some fun, games, loads of chocolate and a sausage sizzle to help raise some more money for Telethon. Our total for 2019 currently stands at $1,000 and we are looking forward to adding so more onto this. If you, or someone you know, would like to attend, please give Trent Vivian our Director a call on 0432 392 387 or email him on Last year we had over 100 kids attend so the more the merrier!

In terms of the market outlook, we have now passed through the first quarter of 2019, can you believe it how quick did that go! We are still optimistic for the rest of 2019, rentals have definitely been the stand out with multiple applications coming in on property and lots of enquiries. We are also seeing properties leased quicker and quicker and at higher rents, which are all good signs for investors. If you have been thinking of leasing out your property or have been looking for a new property manager, please contact our Head of Department Sharon Pimlott. We guarantee you will not be disappointed by our services and are currently offering a 2 month free management fee trial on properties. For more details on this feel free to contact us anytime.

Sales have definitely taken a hit in the first quarter. Units have moved very slowly, but with the new Glyde Street development we hope this will bring some hope for our other units. Homes are moving steadily, especially in the $900,000 to $1,300,000 range, but the top end homes have been a little sluggish to move with lots of price reductions seen across the board. Our 1st Quarter Report for 2019 will be hitting Mosman Park shortly so be sure to keep your eye out for this, it will give you an outlook for 2019 as well as how Mosman Park performed stats wise from January to March.

Remember for all of your selling, buying or leasing needs please don’t hesitate to contact us, we are your local property specialists, ready and waiting to help. We look forward to seeing you all around Mosman Park or down at the Bowling Club.
