Heat takes on social bowlers
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.
