The feature this week was the fine effort by School. After their dismal defeat last week they came close to taking a point from Rockbusters. If they continue to improve like this they will be a real force in the competition. In the second game Pebbles had a good win over Apex. RESULTS: Rockbusters - 5 sets 44 games def. School - 4 sets 33 games. Pebbles - 7 sets 48 games def. Apex - 2 sets 25 games. Considering that the Mother's Day 48BB event was played within hours of the highly successful Associates Dinner, the scores were surprisingly good, The 4 Ball Best Ball V Par was won by Basil and Molly Courts with plus six, Runners-up on a count-back from Tex and Erica Russell wBre Dave Thomas and Beth Staunton who scored plus five, Members without Associate partners played a similar event, which was well won by E, Paradine and R. Boylan with plus eight, Ron Lear won nearest the pin, and almost won the long drive too, but M, Bennett's magnificent drive was a winner, Captain R, Boylan, speaking after the presentations, commended the Associates for the ability, hard work and planning which went into their very successful Dinner on Saturday night, The result had been a fantastic night's enjoyment, attended by approximately 140, 8 Dave Went the National Baseball Codch paid a visit to Tennant Creek.last week. Dave played baseball in Melbourne and was six years in the Victorian State Team and a number of years in the Australian Squad. In 1971, he was appointed Assistant Coach to the Australian Team for the International Series in Asia. In 1973 he was appointed National Coach and since then has supervised the training and game stratergy of the Australian Team. To keep in touch with advancing co~ch ing techniques, Dave spent about six. weeks with the Cincinatti Reds, a maJor professional team in the U.S.A. He has a vast wealth of baseball knowledge and it was most generous of him to come to Tennant Creek after attending the N.T.Championships in Darwin. Baseball, Softball and T. Ball coaches and players were very pleased to attend various coaching clinics and lectures by Dave. He outlined many simple techniques which could be put into practice in Tennant Creek by nearly all players to improve their game. As well as the simple tips for all, Dave also included more advanced training and coaching schedules leading to various double plays and put outs in a game situation. We hope to include a number of the tips in a regular column in future editions of the Tennant Times. If everyone puts them into practice there will be a great improvement in the standard of play, to the benefit of players and spectators alike. In Sympathy------------.
