BOWLERS at­tend­ing the Monto Triples Car­ni­val on Oc­to­ber 11–12 were priv­i­leged to wit­ness an 11-year-old play­ing in his first car­ni­val. Shane Ride­out has only been play­ing for about six months but looked as though he had been play­ing for years by the stan­dard he main­tained over the five rounds. Shane was play­ing lead for his fa­ther Damien and after four rounds the team was one point be­hind the team skipped by his grand­fa­ther Rod­ney. The com­pe­ti­tion in the fi­nal game to gain the ad­van­tage was very keen with both Damien and Rod­ney re­ceiv­ing stiff op­po­si­tion from their op­po­nents. In the end grand­dad pre­vailed by 21/2 points. One in­ter­est­ing fact was that Shane was us­ing three heavy bowls with­out any in­con­ve­nience.
