AMIDST heavy rain­fall on Satur­day, Mun­dub­bera’s bowlers came out in force for the bowls club’s Pa­tron and Pa­troness day.

Club pres­i­dent Selina Druery said the weather cre­ated an ex­tra chal­lenge for the bowlers.

“Ev­ery­body played well in the con­di­tions, and they all en­joyed it,” Druery said.

“It makes the green heav­ier and you’ve got to re­ally let your bowl go to get it up to the other end some­times.

“These chal­lenges are set to try you.”

Reg­u­lar bowler By­ron Lee en­joyed the ex­tra chal­lenge.

“A bit of wet weather never hurt any­body,” Lee said.

“It was a very en­joy­able day with good com­pany.

“Bowls is so re­lax­ing and en­joy­able.”

Druery said she rushed the bowlers through lunch so they had more time to play.

“I said look, the quicker we get back on the green, the quicker we can get the game over in case it comes in, as we only played 15 in the af­ter­noon,” Druery said.

“We were off the green by the time it hit hard.

“They were hav­ing af­ter­noon tea when it started to come down.”
