Fun is on for vis­i­tors

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

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.
