Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News - By MA­RINA WOOLDRIDGE

GIN Gin Bowls Club an­nu­ally hosts the Bust Me­mo­rial Day, with 2014 be­ing no ex­cep­tion.

Held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 29, the bowls day was the 32nd to be hosted by the club.

Gin Gin’s Mal­colm Bust has car­ried on this day, started by his fa­ther Her­bert in 1982 af­ter wife Hazel’s death.

Mal­colm is one of eight boys and three girls, all born and raised in the area, many of whom have stayed in the area and raised their own chil­dren.

The bowls day was a great suc­cess, with rel­a­tives com­ing from all over Queens­land and New South Wales.

In all, 63 play­ers were on the greens, and along with their chil­dren, all had a won­der­ful day.

Win­ners of the day were Henry Dwyer, Sue Bust, Lew Bust and Ge­orge Bust, while H Bust, A New­man and D Bust fin­ished run­ners-up.

Gin Gin Bowls Club will now pre­pare for its Make-a-Wish fundraiser on Fe­bru­ary 22.

The day will see teams of two bowlers and two non-bowlers join forces for fun games while rais­ing money for char­ity.

Names must be in as soon as pos­si­ble, with a low en­try fee of $5 per per­son.

Com­pe­ti­tion will start at 9am. Phone Richard Man­der­son on 4157 2588.
