Spanny plays well for Prossie in Australian Open
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.
