Winding down at Southern Cross

By Casey O'Connor

In play last Thursday at the Southern Cross Bowls Club, Bill Lee and Val Gray were lucky enough to score a couple of fives which got them over the line just ahead of Daphne Cross and Barry Heffernan. The score 18 to 16.

On Sunday afternoon, social bowls wound up for 2021 with two games of pairs followed by a game of “pandemonium fours.” Each bowler plays three bowls and when you have all 24 bowls on the rink there is certainly a level of pandemonium which makes for an interesting game.

Kim Hankinson, Barry Ziebell, Allan Davidson and Kev Mooney won by one point narrowly defeating Marion Skaines, Daryl Busch, Geoff Davis and Dave Scotney.

As 2021 draws to a close there have been plenty of parties and barefoot bowls at the club over the past year in addition to the many competitions and social bowls events. The club extends a very big thank you to all the volunteers that made these events happen and wishes everyone compliments of the season.

New players are always made welcome at the Southern Cross club with free coaching available for newcomers. Why not give it a go?

Lawn bowls is an easy game. It is easy to get make your shots and even easier to miss them and much fun can be had in between.

For barefoot bowls, social and competition bowls, functions and bar, it is hard to go past the Southern Cross Bowls Club Inc. The club is conveniently located opposite St Mary’s Church in Warwick.

You can follow the club on their Facebook page or contact the Secretary, Cheryl on 0407 641 158 if you would like further information.
