Wild windy weather greets out-of-town­ers

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT - Erica Murree

BOWLERS at­tend­ing Sun­day’s Pres­i­dent’s Day at the Biggen­den Bowls Club de­scribed it as a mis­er­able day.

They weren’t talk­ing about the com­pany but the weather.

Af­ter around 40mm of rain on the Satur­day, the town woke up to wild windy weather.

At the end of the day three teams, Gayndah, Bin­jour and Isis Cen­tral Mill had two wins each in a close fin­ish for the prize­money.

The Gayndah team of Brodie Kirk, Nev McCosker, Chris­tine and Brian Pry­goda won the day by one point over the Bin­jour team of Leo Tat­icek, Gary Tay­lor, Barry Kuine and Greg Thomp­son. Isis Cen­tral Mill fin­ished two points behind on 27.

Brian Pry­goda, con­grat­u­lat­ing his fel­low play­ers, laughed when he sug­gested to pres­i­dent Greg Vi­cary they could have or­dered bet­ter weather for his day.

“I can guar­an­tee you all when you come to Gayndah in Septem­ber the weather will be bet­ter,” he said.

Bin­jour skip Greg Thomp­son said the team gave Gayndah a run for their money. “But they got ahead of us,” he said.
