LADIES

Proser­pine had the hon­our of host­ing the Mackay District Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons Pairs this year – the first time in his­tory.

Last Wed­nes­day’s rain didn’t in­ter­rupt games for too long, with some won­der­ful bowls played.

St He­lens de­feated Pi­o­neer Val­ley 2420 in the morn­ing while Mackay was vic­to­ri­ous against Mar­ian 21-18.

Seaford took care of North Mackay 2816 and Souths Subur­ban knocked over North­ern Beaches 21-18.

In the af­ter­noon the Proser­pine pair of Lois Read and Janet Mor­timer were de­feated by City 25-18, while Sa­rina beat Air­lie Beach 22-17, St He­lens proved too much for Seaforth 26-10 and Mackay bet­tered Souths Subur­ban 21-20.

So­cial play was down due to the weather; how­ever one game of triples saw John Lah­ney, Flo O’Han­lon and Lil­lian Har­ris oust Fran Porter, Arthur Wil­liams and Joy Jef­fries 23-7. The ladies also catered for the Men’s Un­der 200s Car­ni­val at the week­end.

The club would like to thank all in­volved for their ef­forts.

This Sun­day a game of Club Cham­pi­onship Triples will be played, with Janet Mor­timer, Lil­lian Har­ris and Heather Brown tak­ing on Lois Read, Bar­bara Dam­mash and Ma­ree Daf­fara.
