It was on for young and old
IT’S obvious from this photo that there is a few years difference in age between these two bowlers. Try 96 years. Yes, 96. Echuca’s oldest resident, Jim Stapleton, 105, and Jason Brighton, 9, recently played in the same rink in City Of Echuca Bowls Club’s division 5 pennant side.
Club president Pat Scram believes the age gap between the two teammates would have to be or close to a Guinness World record. And you would imagine there wouldn’t be too many serious challengers for that honour.
