Bin­jour bowlers’ leg­less dilemma

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

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.

PHO­TOS: CON­TRIB­UTED
