Wet weather poses challenge for Gympie bowls

Last week was once again rain interrupted for Gympie Bowls at Southside with very little bowls happening.

Fortunately, our indoor activities were able to proceed as normal.

Tuesday was Sunshine Ladies President’s Day with over 70 bowlers from nine clubs attending. It was great to see bowlers from as far away as Kilkivan and Pomona there especially when there was no guarantee of play.

Teams were selected using a random draw. The drizzle forced the bowlers from the green but the day continued with Bowlers’ Hoy being played using a pack of cards.

Following an excellent lunch provided by our catering group, President Ruth Stephan was presented with a gift by District President Janelle Westlake and another by her club.

Given the wet conditions it was an excellent day enjoyed by all who attended.

Next week will be another busy week for Gympie Bowls Club at Southside.
