It’s been a really busy month for our bowling and rolling group of Bay Rollers with new shirts arriving thanks in part to Nick Whyte at Temptations on the Bay, Tin Can Bay. The shirts were designed by Tin Can Bay local, Julie Hartwig and printed by Graphic Screen Prints at Hervey Bay.
Several of our bowlers travelled to Rainbow Beach on Thursday 5 January where eight Bay Rollers dined at Quay Carlo before moving on to the Sports Club for a friendly roll up with our friends Martin and Jane Kaye from Beachmere. A fabulous afternoon on unfamiliar surfaces with plenty of attention from the onlookers!
On lucky Friday 13 January a group of 11 keen bowlers packed up and travelled to Durong for their annual TED’S MEMORIAL MANGO BOWLS DAY held on Saturday 14 January. Well, whilst our bowlers didn’t bring away the mangoes on the day (partly because the weather hasn’t been kind to the mango crop) they certainly made up for it in fun and laughter, both teams scoring 30 points each.
64 players in total attended for a day of fun and celebration – the bowls club is an absolute credit to the membership of only 6 but an army of enthusiastic volunteers all chipping in to keep the grounds and clubhouse spotless and viable. Caravan sites were provided for the 7 vehicles which travelled and all of our 11 players and supporters had a wonderful time.
Needless to say that the game of FINSKA after the bowls winners were announced for the day went to the ladies – score cards are irrelevant! Three of the group travelled home early on Sunday morning with others then travelling to several wineries around the Murgon area, with lunch at Dusty Hill winery.
Our newcomers Robyn Cook, Allan Wegner, and Bob Siepen have increased our numbers to 17 and anyone wanting to join on our bowling and rolling trips is asked to please contact Kevin Coleman on 0428 775 735. We bowl and we roll!
