Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

BOWLS: Three lo­cal lads from Proser­pine Bowls Club have trav­elled to the Gold Coast to con­test this year’s Aus­tralian Open, with one player prov­ing he still has what it takes to play with the best.

Dan Robin­son was the first to play in the qual­i­fy­ing sin­gles matches on Satur­day. Un­for­tu­nately he lost all three games 21–16, 21–9 and 21–19 against some great play­ers.

Shane May and Shane Spann were next to play on Sun­day. May played well but just got pipped for qual­i­fy­ing in his games, los­ing the first two 21–16 and 21–17 but bounc­ing back with a 22–13 win. Spann proved he has still got it by qual­i­fy­ing for the next round of knock-outs by win­ning two games 21–12 and 21–5 and nar­rowly los­ing the third 21–20.

Four brave souls turned out on Sun­day for a game of so­cial bowls. Fran and Rob de­feated Alan and Ron 19–12.

Wed­nes­day, June 7, saw 16 so­cial mem­bers play two so­cial games.

Ma­ree Daf­fara and Judy McKen­zie were de­feated by Mary Hedge­long and Jo Peasley 19–17.

In a game of triples Norma Daniels, Heather Pat­ullo and Bar­bara Dam­mash de­feated Fran Porter, Gail Camm and Wendy Pomeroy 23–14.
