Bowlers kept busy with events
WHILE wet weather stopped all games at the Airlie Beach Club on Tuesday, the club's teams for the Johnston Shield travelled to Mackay.
The yearly competition is held undercover with the Airlie teams facing off against all the Mackay district clubs.
They played Singles, Pairs and Fours with the Pairs team of Elaine Hadlow and Alison Holmes wimming their game.
The Fours and Singles were not so lucky.
The winners of the Johnston Shield this year were Pioneer Valley.
The boys were lucky on Wednesday and played all ends despite the glowering weather and the winners of the Triples were Keith Dunn, Ron Spence and Russell Bramish with 17 points each.
The jackpot still didn't go off and is now up to $500 despite the number of visitors having a go.
Friday night Barefoot Bowls was washed out last week but this week is looking good with the an improvement in the weather being forecast.
Saturday night found the bowls club packed to capacity with the staff of Fantasea Cruises joining together to farewell their friends and Fantasea with the bowls club caterers put on a fabulous feast and festivities lasting into the morning hours.
Sunday bowls was well attended with Howard Moulang, David Stock and Paul Osborne defeating Ryan West, Herb Secombe and Ron Spence 24-18.
Also on Sunday afternoon Liz Johnston and Lesley Carlin played the semi finals of the ladies A Grade Singles and after a very close game Lesley won by one point when it was 24 all.
Both players were congratulated on their great efforts and Carlin will now move on to face Jo Howes in the final.
B Grade Pairs are starting soon and all teams are asked to read the board for your next or first match.
Sunday Roast was great and will continue with members of the public welcome to come a long for a two-course meal for only $15.
