SPORT NOTES: Working bee called, golfers tee off before rain

PROSERPINE BOWLS: Unfortunately there was no social play at the weekend due to the consistent rain we received.

There were a couple members who travelled down to Mackay to compete in the district mixed pairs.

Peter Lawton and Heather Brown lost their first round match and Vicki Spann and Wayne Handley lost their second round match.

On Wednesday, we had 5 players for the morning game. What a close game it was.

Fiona played double lead. Fiona, Arthur Griffith and Peter Lawton defeated Fiona, Stephen Summers and Bruce Uhe 16 – 15.

In the afternoon Stephen Summers and Peter Lawton defeated Arthur Griffith and Bruce Uhe 18 – 17 in another very close game, playing three-bowl pairs this time.

Peter Lawton has called a working bee for Saturday, March 6, to pull weeds out of the green.

It would be good to get as many helpers as we can to assist in this to make the green run and play a lot better.

Please bring a screwdriver or little weeding hoe and bucket.

PROSERPINE GOLF: Thirteen players got halfway around the course on Saturday and that was the end of the game as the rain started tumbling down.

Seventy-two players had originally nominated, but by 9.30am that number had fallen to below 40.

In Thursday’s stableford Karl Kirkwood took out division one with 39 points, from Roger Vandenberg on 38.

Peter Elms was division two winner, also on 38 points, from Terry Handford on 35.

The placegetters were Sam Deicke, 37, Adam Maggs, Zac Dowde and Trevor Paroz, 36, followed by Tom Maclean, Mat Bower, Chris Brett and Paul Joice all with 35.
