Strong field at bowls club

THE competition was fierce and the heat was on.

A full field of bowls competitors gathered at the Emu Park Bowls Club for last weekend’s game and the skills were strong.

Greg Johns and Steve Garfield of Yeppoon complimented each other’s moves as they played consistently well throughout the event and took out first place of $100.

The Topmen Poms’ Dave Lee and Marty Flowers had a great day and took out third place behind Frank Cusack and Les Lomas.

Emu Park Bowls Club’s Norm Bethal said the competition was at a high level with everybody playing hard games.

“The sparks were firing with Ron Sparks and Ken Lemen when they played very good bowls all day,” Bethal said.

Shane Hoszak and Les Lomaf played a steady strong game as well as the international flair of “Alan the Welshman” who played his first game in Australia.

“He paired with the club secretary but unfortunately they were not on the money but showed a lot of promise and we look forward to those skills next week,” said Bethal.

The next game will be held this weekend at the Emu Park Bowls Club.
