Bowler of year for seventh time
Ettalong Bowling Club's World Number Five ranked bowler Aron Sherriff was named Bowls Central Coast "Bowler of the Year" for 2011 at a Presentation Night held on Thursday, January 19, at The Bay Sports Club.
This took his total wins to a record breaking seven times for this award in the 20 years since its inception.
Aron also created Bowls Central Coast history by becoming the first bowler to win, in the one year, all four Zone 15 Championships in Singles, Triples and Fours.
When presented with his award, Aron was asked by Bowls Central Coast president Mr Kevin Dring to share with the audience some of his experiences competing on overseas bowling greens.
He said: "Some of them, including Hong Kong, were running at about eight seconds and it was like trying to bowl in my backyard.
"You had to almost drive to make it to the jack.
"It's always good to come back to Australia after competing overseas and play on what I think are the best greens in the world."
On the night, Aron was presented with the Wal Rainbow Perpetual Shield for Bowler of the Year, a silver plate for achieving the Grand Slam and an engraved glass tankard for being selected in the Australian and NSW State Sides.
Other awards presented on the night went to Harley McDonald of Ettalong as Runner-Up Bowler of the Year, Alan Rogers also from Ettalong as winner of Senior Singles and Senior Pairs, Brian Burrows of Umina as winner of Veterans Singles and Veterans Pairs, Lee Trethowan of Ettalong for selection in NSW Reserves Side and John Roberts of Ettalong for selection in NSW Senior Side.
