Edge in front of fours

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

EDGE Hill bowler David Spowart led his team to vic­tory in the Moss­man Fours last week­end.

The high­light of the Moss­man Bowls Club cal­en­dar, Spowart’s team was the only one of 15 from as far away as Ing­ham to win all five games to take the lion’s share of the $6800 in prize­money to fin­ish ahead of Barry Hair’s team from Mar­lin Coast.

Dave Egan’s team per­formed the best for the Moss­man club, putting in the best per­for­mance on Satur­day be­fore los­ing its only game in the fifth and fi­nal match on the last end.

On a much sad­der note for the Moss­man Bowls Club, pres­i­dent Bob Day passed away af­ter a long ill­ness on Tues­day night.

Club sec­re­tary Rod Parkes said his good mate would be sorely missed.

“Bobby was the shin­ing light at the club, he bright­ened ev­ery­one’s day and en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to en­joy them­selves first and fore­most,” he said.
