Ladies cel­e­brate Pres­i­dents and Mem­bers Day

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


TUES­DAY was an en­joy­able day for the ladies at the Air­lie Beach Bowls Club who held their pres­i­dents and mem­bers day.

Even the dis­as­trous weather could not dampen the spir­its or enthusiasm of the ladies from around the district who ar­rived mostly by bus from Mackay and Proser­pine.

The ladies en­joyed an hour and ten min­utes of play be­fore the rain be­came too heavy forc­ing those on the green to ad­journ in­side.

The bowls win­ners and run­ners up for the day were Lynda Leyshon, Shirley Wesche, Thelma John­son and Robyn Dev­ereau with a score of nine.

Run­ners-up were Pam Pratt, Sue Hunter, Janet Mor­timer and Mavis Bryan who came in at a close sec­ond with their score of eight.

Un­for­tu­nately, the Air­lie Beach ladies were not suc­cess­ful in the bowls arena but ex­celled in their hos­pi­tal­ity by pro­vid­ing an ex­cel­lent lunch.

The event or­gan­is­ers thanked all clubs in at­ten­dance in­clud­ing Seaforth, North­ern Beaches, Proser­pine, Mackay, South Sub­ur­ban, Pioneer Val­ley, North Mackay, Sa­rina, St He­len’s, Mar­ian, Bowen, Mackay City and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Mackay District Ladies Bowls Club.

The wet weather on Wed­nes­day stopped all bowls from be­ing played, al­though one of the keen­est mem­bers Nik Fern­bach, got in a cou­ple of hours of prac­tice.

Busi­ness house bowls de­cider for se­ries 11 was also can­celled due to weather.

Thurs­day night was wet but the Cruise Whit­sun­day staff get to­gether didn’t need bowls to make it suc­cess­ful as a great time was had by all.

The po­lice so­cial club also en­joyed a good cel­e­bra­tion to­gether on Fri­day night.

A chance to play bowls re­turned to Air­lie Beach on Sun­day and the reg­u­lar group of so­cial bowlers made the most of the clear con­di­tions.

They played two games of pairs and one game of triples.

The win­ning pair’s team of Doreen Whitehouse and Eric Bot­tle eas­ily de­feated Wally Gray and Nik Fern­bach 15-5, while Richard Whitehouse and Steve Tat­tam de­feated Bruce Pur­die and Domenico Sposato 13-7.

Triples win­ners were Konna Jewell, Mau­reen Barnard and Margo Stan­ley who claimed vic­tory over Konna Jewell (dou­ble lead), Ladda Pur­die and Kevin Jewell 13-8.

The last round of busi­ness house bowls was played last night, and the win­ning team will be an­nounced in next week’s paper.
