Eidsvold out bowls Gayn­dah

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

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.
