As the days get longer and warmer and spring comes to our paradise, the bowls at our club are in full bloom all around the district.

Wednesday afternoon Jackpot bowls was won by Tony Whitehorn's team with a score of 33-14 with Graham Cowling and Eric Barnard.

Saturday morning Scroungers final game saw Warren Mills win again with some precision bowls and white washing the field.

The winners then played the final and first round winners of Russell Jackson, Gary Kiff and Margo Stanley play out the final.

It was Margo who won easily with 2 ends to be played she was so far in front and couldn't be beaten in an outstanding performance.

Meanwhile in Bowen, 14 teams playing for great prize money saw Tony Whitehorn's team of Betty his better half Helen Ward back from South Australia and the very reliable Col Morris beat all contenders to represent our little club in Paradise and do us proud.

Sunday afternoon Social bowls saw Fiona Greener draw out the lowest winning score.

It was John Askew with his team of Janet Jacometti and Graham Cowling taking home the winning prize, and it was the new A Grade Mens singles champion Alan Pershouse take home the prestigious Health Hub award.
