Members of the Southern Cross Bowls Club were chanting rain, rain, go away, come again another day, …. preferably not on a bowls day after play on Thursday was cancelled and with storms still threatening on Friday, night bowls were also called off.
There is an upside to the rain, it “greened” up the green nicely and with fine weather on Sunday the green was perfect for a great social game.
Members were joined by half a dozen bowlers visiting from West Toowong Bowls Club and a couple of local barefoot bowlers boosted the numbers.
Four teams played Triples and another four played Pairs.
Linda, Val and Kim were the lucky recipients of the cash prize.
Sometimes just one little error cannot go unnoticed. John Johnson and Clark Davidson are both experienced bowlers but somehow, they each forgot the small circle on the bowl goes on the inside.
That is so when you deliver your bowl turns towards the centre of the rink you are playing on and not next door.
The penalty for this is drinks all round, which made an excellent accompaniment to the pizza at afternoon tea.
