North Mackay Ladies Secure Symons Shield Win

Another exciting bowls event from the Ladies Section at North Mackay Bowls Club. The Annual Symons Shield was held at Northern Beaches Bowls Club with nine Clubs competing. The finalists were decided after some nail biting finishes – Souths Suburban played North Mackay.  It too came down to the last bowl and North Mackay Ladies were declared the winners by one point.  The event is held at the same Club each year on land donated by the Symons family.

The Ladies presenting the Shields are members of the Symons family, Daphne Goodson and June Critchley, who donated their land for the benefit of the Northern Beaches Bowls Club which hosts the event annually.
