Weekly Lawn Bowls Reports Friday August 27, 2021

Keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the bowls community


Ladies Social Bowls and Championship Results:

No Ladies bowls were played due to the Cairns-Yarrabah lockdown.

Men’s Mixed Social Bowls:

Bowls resumed with players eager to get on the green after a fortnight break. The winners were Gary Pomroy and Bruce Moseley. R/U: Russell Lamb, Meredith Kennon and Valerie Still. L/C: Joyce Ault, Peter Ryan and Kim Mitchell. A special award for Last place winners were Beth Gray, Jill Alexander-Sasche and Mac Smith.

Social bowls resume Tuesday (afternoon and evening), Wednesday (evening Triples), Thursday (afternoon) and Saturday (afternoon).

Friday  August 27, Edge Hill First Division Pennant team will fly to Mount Isa to play in the North Queensland Zone playoff.

The teams are Team 0ne: B Cribbin, P Lee, H Mitchell, F Obah. Team Two: D Spowart, A Hammond, D Laycock, W Petrohilos and Team Three L Braggins, J Walker, S Vardy and Wayne Hewitt. Good bowling to all and bring home a win to qualify for Brisbane Zone playoff later this year.



The Official Opening of the Restored Riverbank of the Innisfail Bowls Club, held on Friday August 20, was a most successful event, welcomed by all members of the Bowls Club and the local community.

Innisfail Ladies provided a sumptuous afternoon tea for over 80 guests. TV coverage by Channel 7 was appreciated by all who watched.

On Tuesday 24, six Innisfail ladies played in the TFNQDLBA Graded Triples in Tully and were rewarded with a great day of bowls.  All participants enjoyed the day.

Next Tuesday, four Innisfail ladies will participate in the TFNQDLBA Graded Fours being held in Yungaburra.

On Wednesday 25, the final of the Innisfail Self-Selected Pairs was held.  The game took a most unexpected turn on the last bowl of the day.

Diana O’Brien and Helen Paterson led for 99% of the game arriving at the last end with a score of 15 - 12 against Maisie Smith and Dian Catelan.

Diana held the lead until Maisie put down the last bowl, taking the Jack to the back edge of the green where she and Dian had 4 bowls waiting!

So the winners of the Innisfail Ladies Club Pairs for 2021 are Maisie Smith and Dian Catelan who defeated Diana O’Brien and Helen Paterson 16 - 15.

In the Social game, Eileen Hamann, Pam Anderson and Vera Rowe 22 defeated Sue Morrison, Jan Dunn, Joan Atkinson and Marcia Ryall 14.

Next week the final of the Ladies Triples will be held; it promises to be an equally exciting game.

Ladies wished Pam Anderson and Joan Atkinson happy birthdays for the 29th; they are twins; one born in Mayfield NSW and the other in Hughenden Qld on the same day!
