Scones And Smiles Fill The Mackay City Ladies Bowls Club

The Mackay City Lady bowlers recently held an exciting string of events, including their Opening Day, PAH and an ‘Overs and Unders’ Carnival.

These three successful events proved to be a fantastic bowling day out for those involved!

Margot Stanley, Lorraine Silman and Pam McDermott from the Mackay District Ladies Bowls Association (MDLBA) joined bowlers from all around the Mackay district to participate in the City Ladies’ Presidents at Home on the 28th of February.

The Cent Sale and luncheoun was filled with plenty of smiles as well as Cath’s well known scones in which made for a very enjoyable day for everyone!

As bowlers from across the Mackay District gathered together it was great to see lots of friendly faces as attendees conversated with both old and new acquaintances.

A full green of lady bowlers enjoyed another great day of bowling for the ‘Overs and Unders’ Carnival on the 4th of March. Morning and afternoon tea kept them busy throught the day whilst the two games of eighteen ends commenced.

The team at Mackay City Ladies Bowls Club would like to thank all members who assisted in the organising and running of the three events, making for a pleasant day filled with enjoyment and camaraderie.
