Who would have thought? In the 1978 Final of the Balmain Bowling Club’s Fours Championships ,Skip Victor Sterrey split the jack in half. Some 38 years later the new operators of the Club’s Restaurant decided that the facility would be called “Crack a Jack”. Coincidence or a fitting commendation to a past historical incident in the Oldest Bowling Club in New South Wales. Appropriately, the Memorial Plaque is prominently displayed in the Restaurant.
