Bowlers struggle on heavy green
Eidsvold challenge made harder by rainfall
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.
