Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

AIR­LIE BOWLS: History was cre­ated at the Air­lie Beach Bowls Club this week, with the club win­ning pen­nants in sev­eral di­vi­sions.

The club’s men claimed the di­vi­sion three pen­nant while the ladies were suc­cess­ful in di­vi­sion four.

This is the first time in the club’s history that both men’s and ladies’ pen­nants have been won in the same year, mark­ing a record-mak­ing achieve­ment for all in­volved.

In other news of suc­cess for the club, Bob McMa­hon and Andy Bell claimed vic­tory in the Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons’ dis­trict pairs in Sa­rina while Herb Se­comb flew the flag for Air­lie Beach at the re­cent Proser­pine 200s, win­ning the se­nior sin­gles ti­tle.

Closer to home, Dom Sposato has taken the lead in the Sun­day so­cial com­pe­ti­tion with 31 points over Wally Gray (30) with just three weeks re­main­ing.

On Wed­nes­day men’s jack­pot play, Nik Fern­bach and Jon Sladek were vic­to­ri­ous over Rod Moore and Martin Stewart 20-18 while Jim Cairns and Dave Per- kins had the last laugh over Keith Beetham and Barry An­der­son 23-19.
