Bowlers beat the elements
THE bowlers participating in the Hornbill Bowls Trophy over the weekend in eShowe had to face diverse weather conditions throughout the competition.
Rainy and overcast conditions on Saturday gave way to hot and windy weather on Sunday making bowling very difficult with gusting cross winds.
The team of Steve Oberholzer, Gloria Garbutt, Margaret van Heusden and Chalk Kellaway representing Empangeni Bowling Club showed they had what it takes and were runaway winners.
After leading into the second day they proved too strong for the opposition and won with an impressive final score of 50+43.
Mtunzini who finished third on the second day, managed to finish in second place with a score of 14+28, while Anita Scott’s Richards Bay team slipped to third place with -7+27.
The main sponsor Warwick Wealth, represented by Bobby Beakes has already undertaken to sponsor the 2018 competition.
Second placed Mtunzini Bowling Club members Mike Bowman, competition secretry Bill Kruse, eShowe club president Tinkie van Vuuren, Mike Butler, Tommy Bishop and Dan Germishuyse
