Bowling up to Emu Park
THEY just keep rolling along to Emu Park Bowls Club on a Saturday afternoon.
The Marty Flowers sponsored three-bowl pairs continues to attract bowlers to the picturesque greens of the coastal club providing a fine array of talent.
However, club spokesman Norm Bethell said last weekend it was local bowlers who had the final laugh.
“It was of an extremely high standard,” Bethell enthused.
Last week the main prize was transported to Yeppoon by the pairing of Brian “Curly” Churstain and Kerry Lewis, but the locals were out to prevent that happening two weeks in a row.
Churstain, this time partnered by Tarz Davies, had to be satisfied with a minor placing - but it was close.
Bethell said the Emu Park pairing of Kerry Lewis and Terry Tink played some champion bowls with the winner for the week not known until the final shots were played.
Emu Park made it two from three in the placings with the pair of Tony Smith and Mick Herberts hot on the heels of the winner.
While the competition continues each Saturday, the Emu Park club is bracing for more excitement on Sunday.
Bethell said the club would celebrate “President's Day”, with president Bob Dunn, in a three-bowls triples tournament.
