Men?s pennants aflutter
VICTORIA Park Bowls Club's men's pennants teams signalled their intentions before this year's competition started and this Sunday they have their chance to grab the upper hand.
The Rockhampton-based club has picked up several new members since last year's pennants and the stage is now set for a thrilling contest when rounds three and four of the Central Queensland District Men's Bowls Association's 2005 pennants continues this weekend.
Defending purple flag champions North Rockhampton face a must-win game on their home greens against Victoria Park on Sunday afternoon.

In their first round against Rockhampton the champions suffered a nine-shot defeat on the Rockhampton Bowls Club greens.
North Rockhampton hit back with a vengeance on the Sunday wiping Diggers Memorial off the North Rockhampton greens.
Yeppoon and Victoria Park also opened with wins and both clubs still have an extra game after sitting out a bye last weekend.
In the brown pennants, North Rockhampton are also the defending champions and the club started with two wins over last weekend's opening rounds.
Emu Park and Rockhampton clubs opened with a win and a loss. Diggers Memorial were also firstround winners and have also had a bye.
