Mackay Ladies City Bowls Celebrate Big Wins

Mackay Ladies City Bowls have been busy in recent weeks.

Firstly, member Fay Kerr has celebrated her 90th birthday and received her Matriarch Badge.

Fay began bowling in 1975 in Moranbah, where she later became providore and president.

She moved to Mackay in 1979 and became a member of the RSL Bowls Club, where she was victorious in many competitions.

Fay later became the President of the Mackay District and won a gold medal at the North Queensland Games.

Another member Phyllis Morgan won the district B Grade singles and the district Novice singles, at the District Championships.

Mackay City Bowls also jointly held the State Multi-Disability games, with the Souths Club in August.

The week went well, with fantastic displays of bowling.
