Bowlers take to the field

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

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.
