Aussie Day bowls enjoyed by all

PROSERPINE BOWLS

AUSTRALIA Day was well attended with everyone enjoying the company and the delicious dampers that the ladies served up for afternoon tea.

On Saturday, Reg Russell, Gail Camm and Shane Spann got off to a flying start to defeat Philip Brown, Dot Hinschen and Martin Corr 33-5, Heather Patullo and Barry Zillmann defeated Joanne Dent and Sandy Daffara 29-14 and John Lahney, John Henderson, Lois Read and Joy Jeffries defeated Ross Reville, Darrell Patullo, Rob Taylor and Heather Brown 24-17.

In the other game Trudy Hanne and Kevin Thorogood defeated Kevin Duell and Maree Daffara 24-10.

Faust gift cards were the trophies for the day and these were won by Trudy Hanne and Kevin Thorogood with the lowest score and the most ends won.

On Sunday, a combination of the temperature, the humidity and the morning working bee affected numbers but the brave players who came had a great afternoon.

Kevin Duell and Philip Brown were leading Fran Porter and Arthur Williams 7-3 when the heat got too much for Arthur and he retired to the cool shade and a glass of icy water.

Philip, Fran and Kevin played a game of cut throat with Philip being the winner.

Reg Russell, Gail Camm and Heather Brown managed twogames of cut throat with it coming down to the last bowl each time, with Gail winning both games.

With the change of numbers, an eight end game of triples was played after afternoon tea.

Reg Russell, Philip Brown and Kevin Duell defeated Heather Brown, Gail Camm and Fran Porter 7-5.

Monday morning there was a good turn up for stage two and the club was grateful for the wonderful support from their members.

Nominations for all club competitions close on Sunday, February 3. This Saturday, February 2 will be the last mixed social day for a while as men's competition games will be taking up the majority of rinks on the green.

Wednesday play begins again on February 20. This will be a good chance to get back into the swing of things and catch up with everyone.

Nomination sheets are up on the board for all club competitions and they close on March 6 which is the official opening day.

A one cent sale prize is requested from every member for the official opening day.

First committee meeting for the year is Monday, February 11 at 9am.

Teams are nominated for Beach Girls at Northern Beaches, unders and overs at City, master pairs at North Mackay and some players who have nominated to go to Wangaratta's opening day.

There are no limits on the numbers who can go to any of these events and Maree Daffara will be looking for two members to go with her to City's PAH and Pioneer Valley's PAH.

Nominations for district mixed pairs close on Saturday, February 22 so teams interested in playing in this need to get their nominations in.
