Airlie Beach Bowls Report

Airlie Beach Bowls Club has seen a surge of high-class action over the past week with the summer heat bringing out the best in the members.

Tuesday afternoon's bowls games proved to be scintillating, with the guile of club skipper Margo Stanley and her partner Betty Whitehorn, who is currently in a purple patch, proving to be too much for their opponents Neil Moore and Karen Jensen.

Wednesday's Jackpot Bowls was equally impressive with Graham Cowling and Mark Mawson emerging as the big winners of the day.

The Wednesday night Business House Bowls also saw some exciting games, but they were cut short due to a tropical storm.

The Saturday morning Scroungers event had three first round winners in Betty Whitehorn, Andy McDougall, and Warren Mills.

Betty's husband, Tony Whitehorn, won the B division, continuing his success from last season.

The Saturday afternoon Men's Division tryouts for Pennants were well-organized by John Brown and John Fielding, showcasing the amazing talent in the division.

Sunday afternoon's Social Bowls, excellently organized by Lyn Graham, saw Craig Coleman as skipper with exciting new bowler Dawn Dowel at lead and reliable Neil Moore at second winning the event.
