MORE than 100 bowlers battled the elements over the weekend to kick off the start of the 2017-18 bowls season.
On Saturday some 64 bowlers from Mansfield and Seymour competed in a ‘friendlies’ game of 21 ends battling extremely windy conditions.
Although no winners and losers were declared for the day all agreed it had been a tremendous afternoon’s play.
More than 30 local bowlers turned out again on Sunday to take part in the annual “Rose Bowl” competition which was sponsored this year by Mansfield Real Estate.
Some eight teams of fours played off in two rounds of 14 ends to determine this season’s bowl winners which were the team of George Peterson, Irene Fuller, Marta Mueck and Thea Scheltinga with a score of 38 points + 18 shots.
