Bowlers take to the field
BOWLS: Bowlers from across the Burnett donned their jerseys to compete in the Mundubbera President’s Day.
There were 48 bowlers in attendance with competitors travelling from as far afield as Pialba in Hervey Bay to Kingaroy.
Mundubbera Bowls Club president Selina Druery said the bowling tournament was a success.
“Everybody enjoyed themselves and had a great time playing bowls,” Druery said.
“The winners deserved the win, they played well and really put up a fight.”
There was 12 teams involved.
“We had all our district clubs here, Yarraman, Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai, Murgon, Tansy, Biggenden, Gayndah and Binjour,” Druery said.
“We also had one team from Pialba.”
The greens at the Mundubbera Bowls Club have come quite a long way.
“I think the greens are always getting better and proved quite well looked after with a few people commenting on it,” Druery said.
The President’s Day has been running for many years with numerous ladies events held throughout the year.
“Each club has a lady president and you have a day for her and she puts a day on and everyone comes along,” Druery said.
Druery said the competition couldn’t have been successful without the support of volunteers.
“I’d like to thank everyone who came and helped out with the bowls; those who helped with the cooking did a great job,” she said.
The next bowls event takes place on July 25 which will be a mixed triples competition.
