Exciting Bowls Ahead

Wet weather put rather a dampener on this past week with no Social Bowls on Wednesday.

This meant that we had a bumper turn out for Sunday's Social Bowls.  

We had visitors from Belmont NSW, Swan Hill Victoria, Eden in NSW, Airlie Beach and Sale in Victoria.

Bill Howell, Carol Crosbie, Bob Ross and Betty Nicolle defeated Arthur Griffith, Barry Zillmann, Caroll Smith and Nev Smith 33 - 19; Lee King, Bruce Uhe and Heather Brown defeated John Burnett, Philip Brown and Peter Warner 21 - 19;  Col, John Anderson and Sandy Daffara defeated Alen Sanderson, Peter Lawton and Cheryl Howell 19 - 16.

Champion of Champion Ladies Singles that was to be played at St Helens was postponed until August 10 and 11.

Best wishes for good bowls to Isaac Elliott and Andrew Bell who will be playing Champion of Champion Pairs at Marian this coming weekend.

Champion of Champion Ladies Pairs is to be played at Proserpine this week.  

Thanks to all who have worked so hard in preparing the green for this event.  

It is unfortunate that last week brought rain and we are now hoping that the weather cooperates this week.
