PROSERPINE BOWLS

ON SATURDAY afternoon just three keen bowlers braved the heat playing a couple of games of cut throat, honing their draw bowls and having a lot of competitive fun along the way.

On Sunday afternoon 15 players enjoyed the bowls and the company.

John Lahney, Dot Hinschen and Kevin Thorogood defeated Fran Porter, Reg Russell, Ross Reville and Arthur Williams 27-14, Rick Williams and Sandy Daffara defeated Kevin Duell and Heather Brown 24-17 and Joanne Dent and Wayne Handley defeated Philip Brown and Maree Daffara 30-16.

Australia Day bowls are on this Saturday and this is always a great afternoon of bowls with names needed before 1pm and players on the green by 1.30pm.

Nomination sheets for all men's club competitions are currently on the board and will close on Sunday, February 3.

There are two working bees on this weekend for a two part job on the Brian Cooke Green, weather permitting, on Sunday at 8am and then again on Monday.

LADIES

The ladies club will be back to bowls on Wednesday, February 20 before the official opening on Wednesday, March 6.
