THE finals of the Business House Bowls were played last Wednesday in unfavourable conditions with rain and winds threatening the cancellation of matches.

In the end it was the Mangolians from Mango House who won the title with a win over Hamilton Islanders.

Following the victory, Brad Ashdown said he was proud of his team’s performance throughout the year.

"We just took it week by week," he said.

"The boys really put their heads down and gave 110 per cent.

"I’m just so proud."

The wooden spoon was also won by the Whitsunday Times who defeated Waifs and Strays.
