Fun is on for visitors
A BUS full of bowlers from Miriam Vale visited Gin Gin Bowls Club last week,
More than 30 bowlers made the trip , and from the time they arrived to the time they left, the fun was on.
The condition of the green was perfect and the sun, while hot, was nothing a few cold drinks wouldn’t fix.
All 60 bowlers enjoyed morning and afternoon tea and lunch, all provided by the hard work of the Gin Gin lady bowlers.
Miriam Vale took most of the raffles home and also two-thirds of the prizes.
The bus ride home must have been a jolly one, with all insisting they would be back next year for another fabulous day of bowling and good sportsmanship.
The “sportsman’s award” went to team Marco Crupi, Renee Keitle and skip John Leather.
Runners-up were Dave Roser, Doug Vaughan and skip Neal Ferris, while the winners were Kevin Berneke, Kim Roberts and skip Frank Elder.
Such a wonderful day of sport and friendship really shows that the sport of lawn bowling is not only for the mature in our community but is great for every age group. Please don’t forget the Make A Wish fundraiser coming up on February 22.
It is the perfect opportunity for non-bowlers to give the sport a go while the more experienced can pass on their skills.
This fundraiser starts at 9am, though names must be in by 8.30am.
Phone 4157 2172 or 4157 2405 for more information.
