Airlie Bowls Report

When you live in Paradise you certainly are not used to cold weather and rain, so no bowls was possible on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.

Friday afternoon saw a round of Men's A Division between Manny Isgro and the up and coming very talented Harry Quad and, to everyone's surprise, it was Harry Quad who won this exciting tussle 25-23

Saturday morning Scroungers saw some exciting games - first round winners were Gary Kiff , Ash Warland , Steve O 'Connell and our own John Askew.

The final was between Steve O'Connell and Ash Warland who needed 3 to win the last end and he did it again.

He has been winning everything lately and his form has been impeccable.

Sunday morning was the B Division 4's with the final being played in the afternoon and it was the team ably led by David Ling, with John Fielding, Col Morris and Dennis Donaldetti inspirational with their victory.

Sunday afternoon had some very competitive bowlers vying for the prize, we welcomed Leonie Donnelly from Ballarat Victoria, Ken McAllister back again from Queenscliff, Victoria and Daryl Stumbles from Paradise Point Bowls Club Queensland.

They all played very well but it was Ken whom, with skipper Tony Whitehorn, and lead Janet Jacometti were the runaway winners of the day.
