What a great atmosphere it was, walking into the Barefoot Bowls. Teams of four, of all ages and abilities came together for a weekly battle on the green. Many businesses and local organisations were represented from the Community Information Resource Centre through to the Hot Fuzz team from Rainbow Beach Police Beat.
As a joint initiative between National Parks and the Rainbow Beach Sports Club, the greens were bursting every Tuesday for the six week comp.
The bar was kept busy between ends, and there was lots of banter amongst the teams. In the pursuit for the jack we heard a few teams had even been practising and recruiting young guns!
Rainbow Beach Sports Club representative, Afra Chappill says, “There has been plenty of interest to keep it as a social event on Tuesdays. We’ll be looking at competitions and different events in the future.”
First place was On Fire consisting of Firies, Liam, Joey, Joel and Greg. Each member of the winning team received a meat tray and a voucher for one month access permit for Noosa, Cooloola and Fraser Island national parks donated by the National Parks.
Second Place was awarded to Rose Between the Thorns consisting of Dean, Leanne, Billy and Cain. Each member received a meat tray.
Congratulations to the Laurel Ladies, on their Encouragement Award.
