Central Telegraph - - SPORT - Macken­zie Co­la­han

The Eidsvold Bowls Club may be small in num­bers, but they pulled out all stops to host one of their largest events of the year on Mon­day, Au­gust 20.

The one-day car­ni­val was sup­ported by long-time spon­sor Ken Mills Toy­ota and 14 teams, many trav­el­ling from far and wide, were there to take part.

The Mun­dub­bera, Biggenden, Durong, Ta­room, Theodore and Monto clubs were all rep­re­sented.

For­mer ladies pres­i­dent and Eidsvold mem­ber Jean Wede­meyer said it was rare to see so many vis­i­tors on their greens.

“That’s a very big day for us,” Mrs Wede­meyer said. “We’re quite weak. “We only have three teams and rely heav­ily on vis­i­tors.

“We’re only few in num­ber in Eidsvold so all our neigh­bours sent teams to help us out.

“Our greens keeper is away in South Aus­tralia but the greens were look­ing great, de­spite the frosts.”

The Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club pro­vided the win­ning team on the day, mar­shalled by Barry Humphry.

Pat Dar­ling, Barry and Ja­cob Wen­gel and Sharleen Pry­goda of the Bin­jour club placed a close sec­ond.

On be­half of the Eidsvold club, Mrs Wede­meyer thanked all par­tic­i­pants and spon­sors for their gen­eros­ity

“It’s great to see when peo­ple sup­port lo­cal clubs,” she said.

“Ev­ery­one pulled to­gether and it was an amaz­ing ef­fort from all in­volved.

“The sup­port was ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic, so many dif­fer­ent clubs ral­lied around us.

“It helps us fi­nan­cially and it’s a nice so­cial day for our mem­bers.”
