Mackay and Whitsunday Life

New Experiences At Proserpine Bowls Club

No bowls were played on Wednesday to allow time for some maintenance works on the greens to be most effective. Thank you to those who gave up their time to assist with this work on the Tuesday, it seems to have already been taking effect on that problem weed.

On Sunday, thirteen players enjoyed an afternoon of Social bowls. We welcomed John and Margy Burnett who are taking up the sport socially, Lee King who came to test out the sport, Nathan Lee who will be returning to the sport after a break and all of our regular bowlers.

John Burnett, John Anderson and Heather Brown had a close battle with Alen Sanderson, Bruce Uhe and Nathan Lee with Heather's team winning this contest 22 - 17.  

On the other rink Barry Zillmann accepted the challenge of playing second for both teams. Margy Burnett, Barry Zillmann, Philip Brown and Sandy Daffara drew 18 all with Lee King, Barry Zillmann, Jim Quod and Mike Harrison.

Over this long weekend, some of our members played in events at clubs within our District. Wayne Handley in a team with Cooper Whitestyle, Jason McMullen and Clinton Vassie were the winners of the Mackay Prestige 4s.

We are all very proud of our members Grahame Kinnear, Wayne Handley and Martin Corr who will all be involved with District Sides this week in their player and team manager roles.  

We wish you all the best of luck, good bowls and a wonderful experience.  We are all looking forward to cheering along and experiencing this event along with you all.
