New green set to be rolled out

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

BOWLS: There have been no games played at the club in the past week due to a new green be­ing laid.

This should last for three to four weeks.

The BOM will keep bowlers in­formed as to the progress of the green.

All mem­bers will still be in­vited to play in Proser­pine on Wed­nes­day or Sun­day af­ter­noons.

Margo Stan­ley, Betty Ni­colle and Elaine Had­low went to St He­lens club on Au­gust 29 to com­pete in the Cham­pion of Cham­pion Triples.

The bowl­ing trio lost to the Mackay Club’s Robyn Dev­er­aux’s team but only by a one point mar­gin with an over­all score of 16-15.

Scores were tied af­ter the 21 ends, re­quir­ing an­other end to de­cide the win­ner.

The Air­lie bowlers were proud of the per­for­mance de­spite the out­come.

Air­lie men bowlers per­formed well, win­ning the District and Re­gional Pairs and 4s.

They will be off to the Gold Coast and Mer­maid Beach to com­pete in the state cham­pi­onships in Oc­to­ber.

The Pratt Cup was con­tested at St He­lens club on Satur­day and the men’s team did very well un­til the third game when they were elim­i­nated.

Pioneer Val­ley Club went on to win against the North­ern Beaches club.

The ladies team, fea­tur­ing Elaine Had­low, Ladda Pur­die, Louise Ma­hony and Henny Tat­tam, went to St He­lens 4s car­ni­val on Septem­ber 4.

Re­sults are yet to be re­leased.

Next Mon­day Jill Spencer, Elaine Had­low and Margo Stan­ley will go to South Sub­ur­ban to com­pete in the Master Triples.
