Cold Rock bowlers cream of the crop

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

BOWLS: Tues­day was ladies’ day and they were lucky the glo­ri­ous Whit­sun­day weather had re­turned for the Ladies’ Pres­i­dents At Home day, held at Air­lie Beach ev­ery year.

Visi­tors from South Sub­ur­ban, Wan­garatta, North Mackay, North­ern Beaches, Pi­o­neer, Sea Forth, St He­lens, Mackay, Mackay City and Marian bowls clubs joined with our lo­cal ladies from Air­lie Beach Bowls Club for a friendly game of bowls and lunch.

In all, 84 peo­ple turned out at the club, with 70 bowl­ing.

Men’s day on Wed­nes­day did not have quite as many bowlers but did man­age enough for two games of triples.

Rick Galea, John Sladek and skip Steve Tat­tam had a good win on 27, beat­ing Rick Galea (dou­ble lead), John Ryan and skip Peter Lawton on 14.

Herb Se­comb as a lead with Rick Brunell and skip Nik Fern­bach over­pow­ered lead Paul Os­borne, Jim Cairns and skip Eric Bot­tle, win­ning 27 to 17.

The club also had a new mem­ber, Dan McLeod, en­joy- ing a roll-up with his mother De­bra.

Wed­nes­day night Busi­ness House Bowls had a full com­ple­ment of play­ers, even though only two teams were fight­ing for the tro­phy.

The con­tenders were Cold Rock and Bendigo Com­mu­nity Bank, with Cold Rock pre­vail­ing and earn­ing them the shield to proudly hang in their shop.

Bare Foot Bowls was not run on Fri­day, the club be­ing taken over for a Bald Ea­gles Football Club func­tion.

The Easter Sun­day roll-up of bowlers was not great but enough for two games of triples.

The win­ners of the money were Rick Galea, Rick Brinell and Steve Tat­tam (26) against Rick Galea (dou­ble lead), Henry Tat­tam and Jenny Ry­der (17).

The sec­ond triples team of Con­nie Ream­ers, Ne­ola White­house and Jill Spencer (19) nar­rowly beat Bruce Pur­due, Paul Os­borne and Nick Fin­back (16).

BUSI­NESS BOWLERS: The Cold Rock team of Gary Rus­sel, Ron Ream­ers, Mau­reen Barnard and Cathy Rus­sel claimed the Se­ries 19 Busi­ness House Bowls crown.
