Once again it’s time for our monthly exploration of the vault, and this month we are going all the way back to the 22nd of March last year, and a story about the Commonwealth Games .
Congratulations to Australia’s Golden Lawn Bowlers

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lynsey Armitage and Karen Murphy, the two ladies who won gold in the women’s pairs lawn bowls event at the Commonwealth Games. The won gold is a thrilling and convincing show of power and excellence, overcoming Scotland 11-7, 14-3 in the final.
Lawn Bowls is a magnificent sport, and I am glad that it is receiving the profile it deserves by being a part of the Commonwealth Games.
Well done Lynsey and Karen!
It is worth noting that Australia got a medal in each of the Lawn Bowls events, with another gold going to the Mens Triples team.

I agree. Lawn bowls is a fantastic and exciting sport. The asymmetrical balls combined with a precise action gets my adrenalin pumping. Terms such as; ‘jack’, ‘head’,’touchers’ and ‘dead’ are unique yet highly arousing to the ear and bodice.
The finely laid, precisely leveled and majestically manicured bowling green personifies the type of nether hair I wish my girlfriend to have.

hey chuck, completely off topic and perhaps a bit of a cable-layer, but we’re making a new site and this is one of the stories we have on the site. I thought being a muso you might be interested.
now, back to jacks, touchers and heads.

Not to mention that the women in lawn bowls are a great example for our youth. Bring back the “below the knee” hemline i say… and those large brimmes hats, so sun smart..hoorah for the ladies of lawn bowls!

Aunty_Jack, right on! And the knee high stockings, over the shoulder boulder holders and stepins/big white Cottontails.
Lawn bowls ROCKS.

I have to admit, I found myself strangely aroused by the victorious bowls girls
