Bowlers take to green
THE Mareeba Bowls Club was packed full of 22 self-selected teams when they played their annual competition to coincide with the Mareeba Rodeo.
Teams comprised of three players from the Far North, played five games of 12 ends of bowls in the competition sponsored by Mareeba Bendigo Bank.
Mareeba is fortunate to have a world class lawn bowling venue with a shade covered carpet green incorporated in the Cedric Davies Memorial Hub where the games were played.
These protected games of bowls are a vital part in keeping each club healthy and operating at a level of skill required for Queensland competition bowls.
Winners on the day were Gary and Pauline Kriesel with Wally Fergerson, while Graham Davies, Clive Flanagan and Edna Parkes took out second place.
Third was Ettore, Santina and Vittore Tiraboschi, fourth was Berto Srhoj, Joe Milicivic and John Gordon while fifth went to Marco Tiraboschi, Graham Hird and Lorraine.
