Bowlers strug­gle on heavy green

Eidsvold chal­lenge made harder by rain­fall

Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT SPORT -

THE bowlers had to power through their shots on a heavy bowl­ing green in Eidsvold at the week­end.

“We are up for an­other win,” Peter Hartwig, from Eidsvold, said.

“Our team won the pres­i­dent’s cup last week­end so we are on the ball at the mo­ment.”

Af­ter 25mm of rain on the sur­face the pre­vi­ous day and night, the long game would always be a hard one.

“I like to play a fast sur­face like in Monto and even when it has rained it is never this heavy. This is a bit of a strug­gle,” player Bronwyn Tor­rens said.

“I have been bowl­ing for 20 years now and I love the con­test. I will just have to play a bit harder.”

The Ken Mills Toy­ota Chal­lenge in Eidsvold at­tracted bowlers from Taroom, Theodore and Durong as well as all the North Bur­nett clubs, 14 teams in all.

“We are so proud of our club here in Eidsvold,” pres­i­dent Lyn­d­say Payne said.

“To have so many play­ers here to­day is tes­ta­ment to the hard work we all put in to good re­la­tions with all other clubs.”

Win­ners on the day were Kevin Wi­ley, Nifty Larkin, Bob Wis­niewski and Jerry But­ler.

This Scratch team made up of a mix of play­ers from dif­fer­ent clubs was much too strong on the day and re­mained un­de­feated.

Payne thanked ev­ery­one for their ef­forts and thanked the spon­sor.

“If it was not for the spon­sors of th­ese events there would be a non-event,” Payne said.
