Bowlers pair up for a successful two days

BOWLS: The Mundubbera Bowls Association hosted the District Association Pairs this week with ladies as far as Kingaroy in attendance.

With a clear blue sky present, players enjoyed every minute on the freshly looked greens.

District chairman Aileen Wiley said you couldn't have chosen a better week to host the event.

"It was quite a humid day out here in Mundubbera but we're very pleased to see the greens are doing well,” Wiley said.

"The event has run quite nicely and everyone enjoyed themselves.”

From Wondai, Kingaroy, Murgon, Yarraman, Binjour, Gayndah, Mundubbera and Biggenden were in attendance.

The whole district was out on the greens competing for the association pairs with the grand final hosted on Wednesday afternoon.

"From Eidsvold through to Yarraman and Nanango is our whole district and they were here this week,” Wiley said.

The bowling ladies played three games of 15 ends.

"At the end of the day the top four teams play off on Wednesday afternoon for the semi-finals, one verses three and two verses four,” she said.

Wiley said she would like to thank the Mundubbera Bowls Club for hosting the event this week.

"They've done a terrific job hosting the event,” she said.

"I'd like to thank the Mundubbera club for letting us host this and thank you to the green keepers for maintaining the greens and a huge thank you to all the ladies especially.”

"I'd also like to thank the club for putting on a delicious lunch for everyone.”

The district sides will be the next big competition taking part this month.

"We've got a team of 14 ladies plus a manager which is me and we go to district sides which is held down at the Sunshine Coast,” she said.

"A lot of people who attended this event are part of that team that are going to the Sunny Coast where we play every other district within Queensland.”
