Weather clears, wind arrives for carnival

By Casey O'Connor

The Warwick East Bowls Club was fortunate that the weather cleared for their highly anticipated Fours Carnival last Sunday. Although conditions were a little windy, the Carnival was a very successful with a full green of sixteen teams.

The overall winners were Ed Diery, John Harslett, Norm Hassum and Sid Morris. The runners-up were Robert Sinnamon, Robert Muir, Lyn Ross and Sylvia Sinnamon. The third placed team was Dale Callaghan, Frank Taylor, Elana Scott and Peter Ayerst.

The round winners were as follows: first round – Peter Collis, Dan Hughes, Matt Shepherd and Jean Hankins; second round – Kev Mooney, Linda Hartley, Cate Gardener and Cita Weir; third round – Marion Skaines, Kim Hankinson, Dave Scotney and Barry Ziebell.

The club extends their thanks to the major sponsors of the event, the Warwick Credit Union, Warwick Funerals and Warwick RSL.

A successful carnival can only happen with the assistance of many club members and supporters; the greens staff, those who attended the working bee, the kitchen staff, the bar staff, the raffle ticket sellers and those who organized the raffle prizes. Organisers are most grateful for your help.

Night bowls are copping a caning from the weather gods and were washed out again last week. Surely the weather must turn in the club’s favour so why not

Once again, the rain washed out our Thursday night put your name in for tonight’s games. Submit your name by 6pm ready for play which commences at 6.30pm. Bowls will be followed by a sausage sizzle.

Mixed social bowls are on again as normal on Saturday. Play begins at 1pm, and names should be in by 12.30.

A reminder that next Thursday (25 Nov) is the club’s mixed pairs day with play commencing at 10am. Nominations close at 9am.
