Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


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.

This Satur­day evening will be the next song and siz­zle com­menc­ing at 5.30pm.

Cost is $5 en­try and a bar­be­cue will be avail­able.
