Eidsvold out bowls Gayndah
WHEN the annual president’s day comes around, the social side of the game is really on display, with plenty of back slapping and laughter.
But the underlying desire to win this coveted title is in the minds of all concerned.
The district presidents team, made up from the local club presidents, adds to a full green and some very competitive games, with all bowls strategically placed around the very sought-after jack.
“I love my bowls and I always have had a wonderful day here in Mundubbera,” Binjour Ladies president Leanne Pace said.
“Today is a very special day for us, as teams from so many clubs are here.”
Teams from Jandowae, Goomeri, Tansey and Durong converged on Mundubbera for a very competitive day.
Gamesmanship was the name of the game for clubs from Mundubbera, Biggenden, Gayndah, Binjour and Eidsvold.
Winners on the day were Eidsvold’s Rod Hartwig, Doug Morton, Ron Bligh and Peter Hartwig who out-pointed Gayndah’s Steve Meyer and John Miller’s team on a count-back.
“Sunday, under clear skies and pleasant warmish conditions, it was a long-awaited clash of the region and beyond,” Mundubbera’s publicity officer David Roach said.
