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.
