Sarina Hosts Hot Day Of Bowls

The competition was hot when Sarina Bowls Club hosted the men's only 2023 Wilma Plane Creek Mill Shield.

One hundred and twenty bowlers from 12 clubs competed, playing three games on a reasonably hot day.

Lots of good bowling and friendship resulted between the 120 men fighting it out to see which club could take home the shield.

Northern Beaches and Souths Suburban led a close finish, both teams ending on 17 points each.

Northern Beaches won on overall margin of 67 and Souths Suburban second with 60.

Wilmar is the major sponsor of the day, and many spectators enjoyed watching some very competitive bowls.
