11-year-old shows off super skills
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.
