Fam­ily on the greens

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

THE grief of the past six months was put aside as mem­bers and rel­a­tives of the Mar­shall fam­ily took to the greens of the Biggen­den Bowls Club on Sun­day for a fun day of bowls.

Each year the Mar­shall Memo­rial Day is held to com­mem­o­rate Jim Mar­shall’s in­volve­ment and love of the sport. But in April, son Mor­ri­son died from in­juries sus­tained in a farm­ing ac­ci­dent.

Pro­ceeds of the day’s raf­fle will sup­port the Mor­ri­son Mar­shall Ur­ban Ac­com­mo­da­tion for Ru­ral Fam­i­lies Fund.

Les Mar­shall’s team of Neville Radel, Jac­inta Pohlmann and Sue Mar­shall were the over­all win­ners on the day. No one went home empty handed as there were prizes for all teams. WHO’S THE WIN­NER: Heinz Pirzl, Ellen Radel, Gary Load­s­man, Dave Calloway and Robert Mar­shall while Scott Mar­shall mea­sures for the win­ning bowl. Pho­tos: Erica Mur­ree

MAR­SHALL CLAN: Norma Mar­shall of Biggen­den with her chil­dren He­len Proc­tor, Les Mar­shall, Denise Pohlmann, Steve Mar­shall and Lil­lian Dunne at Sun­day’s Mar­shall Memo­rial Bowls Day.

RUN­NERS UP: Steve Mar­shall, Dave Calloway with son Thomas, Gary Load­s­man and Lucy Han­son scored a fold­ing chair as their prize.

WIN­NERS ARE GRINNERS: Sue Mar­shall, Jac­inta Pohlmann, Les Mar­shall and Neville Radel were the break­fast tray win­ners on Sun­day.
