The Results are in- A Great Time had by All!

Thanks to all who participated in last week’s tournament. What a great way to kick off our 75th season of lawn bowls! After two days of hard battling, the mighty Fleeting Warthogs took first place, followed closely by Team Duct Tape (only one plus point separated the two!), and The Gin and Tonics in third. Also in attendance- Team Under Construction and The Pink Panthers with great bowling and high spirits all around! The weather was beautiful and the bowling was impressive. Many thanks and kudos to tournament master Willie Weir for curating such a fun, supportive first tournament of the season!
