Binjour bowlers’ legless dilemma
A SLITHER and a side-step were new moves at the recent Binjour Bowls Fours Carnival.
Skip Lyn Gray, visiting from Chinchilla, said play was interrupted by a “big brown snake” which decided to cross the green.
“Probably it was a bit hilarious,” Gray said.
“The snake came onto the green and the men were chucking big markers on it.
“It got off the green and crawled into a pipe.”
The unexpected visitor – and the possibility of more – became the topic of banter between Gray’s team on rink 2 and their neighbours.
But then, it was down to business.
While Gray’s team lost their first game against Eidsvold, they won their next two matches with new team members Graham Taylor and Maureen Guyatt.
“Maureen led absolutely beautifully,” Gray said.
“She laid the foundations beautifully and hit the jack or close to it 95% of the time.”
Lyn Gray Maureen led absolutely beautifully.
Guyatt enjoyed the day “especially as you know each other and how they play”.
For Colleen Taylor, it was a proud moment to win the final round.
“In the last two years, we were runners-up in the last round,” she said.
