Bowlers battle through wet weather
DESPITE the average weather the bowlers from the Airlie Beach Bowls Club were lucky this week to get in some games on Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Wednesday afternoon saw a hardy few come along for a very social game, winners for the day were Regina Aqualina, Jill Spencer and Barry Zillman who defeated Wally Gray, Ken Ryder and Margo Stanley 28-8.
The other game saw Jim Cairns, Steve Tattam and John Fornasiero defeat Jim Cairns, Nik Fernbach and Rick Williams 22-15.
Business House Bowls was able to kick off also with 8 teams competing for the nightly prizes.
Anyone wishing to come down and try this very social form of bowls should be at the club by 6pm. Cost is $15 per person which includes your bowls and dinner after the game.
Contact the club on 0488 754 184 if you would like to come along.
There was no Barefoot Bowls on Friday evening due to the rain, but hopefully this week will be fine.
Sunday social bowls were well attended with the rain not disrupting games too much.
Winners on the day were Henny Tattam and David Dias defeating Margaret Heeney and Margo Stanley 16-3.
In the other games Jackson Fallon, Jenny Ryder and Kevin Jewell defeated Gary North, Betty Nicolle and Ken Ryder 13-6 and Steve Tattam and Bruce Purdie defeated Jill Spencer and Keith Beetham 10-9.
