Cracker Pennants coming

EVERYBODY loves the Pennants and this year’s men’s competition promises to be another cracker.

All clubs are going for glory but none more than the ones that were triumphant in 2010.

Yeppoon will be at full strength to defend their first division crown while Emu Park’s win in the second division was a key moment in that club’s bowling history.

This year there are eight teams in the second division and therefore the competition begins a week earlier than the first division to accommodate the extra games.

On Sunday the second division gets under way with a new contender named 3 Rivers.

The 3 Rivers team is a composite, made up of players from the Mt Morgan clubs of Dee and Welfare along with Moura, Wowan, Baralaba and Theodore.

CQDMBA spokesman Denis Bartlem said all games will start at 1pm and team members must be in the same attire as per the rules of the game. Competition rules state match wins are decided by overall aggregate points scored plus rink wins if needed. In the event of a tie in overall match wins the club with the highest number of rink wins is the winner.

If equality still exists then the clubs involved will be required to play off to find a winner at a venue decided by the match committee.

Bartlem reminds bowlers that all afternoon teas will be taken on the run to allow an earlier finish and scorecards must be returned to the chairman of the Match Committee, Ron Graff, by the following Tuesday and he can be contacted on 4928 0953.
