Isis too good in an­nual event

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

GIN Gin bowlers took on the might of Isis Cen­tral Mill in their an­nual “the mill whis­tle” game on March 22.

The com­pe­ti­tion has been fought for over 50 years, with win­ners awarded “the whis­tle” for a year, while the run­ners-up are left with the “oiler”.

Twenty-four play­ers from each club played in the com­pe­ti­tion and all had a won­der­ful af­ter­noon.

Isis proved too strong on the day to win 126-119, a mar­gin of just seven points for the un­lucky Gin Gin team.

De­spite their loss, Gin Gin had a ter­rific day trav­el­ling by bus to play at Isis Mill.

The Isis Cen­tral Mill showed Gin Gin bowlers a hos­pi­tal­ity sec­ond to none with a beau­ti­ful af­ter­noon tea and a great deal of laugh­ter and warm friend­ship.

A jolly bus trip home fol­lowed with ev­ery­one vow­ing to go again next year.
