Tweed–Byron District Women

October 22:  Tweed Byron District Shield.  This annual competition was played at Cabarita Beach Bowling Club. The ten clubs in the District each entered a side of 2 teams of fours to contest this event.   Competition is quite fierce throughout the format of 3 games of 13 ends as the women vied for this prestigious trophy.

Without a breath of air the humid conditions in round one made conditions extremely uncomfortable for all contenders. However, at the beginning of round two, cooling breezes prevailed  rendering perfect conditions for the remainder of the competition.

At the end of round one, Pottsville was the leader in 15 points.   Round two saw a changing of the guards with Cabarita Beach taking the lead following a win and a draw from their side.  Round three was crucial to all teams as scoring was very close up to this point.  In top gear, the women descended onto the greens for their final bout.  Spectators were treated to a very high standard of bowls throughout the whole competition and expressed their appreciation accordingly.

Congratulations to Cabarita Beach WBC, winners of this years event.  Second place went to Ocean Shores WBC with Condong WBC taking out third place.   Congratulations also to all the women who were selected to represent their Clubs in this event. You certainly entertained us with your wonderful bowling.

*** President Anne Mackay and  Committee Members would like to thank Cabarita Beach for hosting this event.
