IT WAS set to be a com­pe­ti­tion but pun­ters on the green on Satur­day suc­cumbed to the heat.

In­stead of com­pet­ing for the ti­tle of 2019 cham­pion, bowlers en­gaged in a friendly game, hit­ting the green from 1pm.

Held to show their clients ap­pre­ci­a­tion, trans­porta­tion com­pany Lind­say Aus­tralia hosted the day, invit­ing a num­ber of grow­ers for whom they trans­port pro­duce.

Spokes­woman for Lind­say Aus­tralia, April Bon­nici said the event was held reg­u­larly.

“We have one ev­ery year for all our grow­ers, giv­ing them time to min­gle and get away from the farm,” she said.

“They are very loyal to Lind­say Trans­port and Lind­say Ru­ral.

“Many of th­ese cus­tomers are large play­ers in the in­dus­try.”

Spokesman for Lind­say Aus­tralia Jamie Ex­elby said the com­pany hosted an event ev­ery year to thank their cus­tomers.

He said a day of lawn bowls was par­tic­u­larly ideal as it al­lowed for so­cial­is­ing and re­lax­ing.

About 60 peo­ple showed up, with at­ten­dees re­main­ing at the Gat­ton Lawn Bowls Club into the early hours of the evening, de­spite the com­pe­ti­tion hav­ing been called off.

The event dou­bled as a fundraiser, col­lect­ing funds for Re­lay for Life Can­cer Coun­cil.

A to­tal of $740 was raised.
