Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Mackay Bowls Club

The Mackay Bowls Club had an interesting turn of events in their games this week, with unsuspected rainfall washing out the Thursday Scroungers Final.

Peter Walsh defeated Mike Irving with a lucky card draw, after the play was suspended from wet weather conditions.

The Men’s B Grade Singles were played over the weekend, with Richie Moraz defeating Richard Bell in a close game of 25-18.

Richie will now go on to play in District B Singles Championships at Airlie Beach, on 16th and 17th September.

Men’s Triples team Peter Taaffe, Kees Struik and Richie Moraz won their first match, but narrowly lost their second game in the District Triples Championship over the weekend.

The Mackay Ladies will be hosting Ladies Triples Championships on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th September.  The Mackay Bowls Club will be represented by Erin Clements, Janice Nelson and Robyn Schatkowski.
