Zone One Pennant Play-Offs were conducted in the Tweed Byron District recently at various bowling clubs.  Blessed with favourable weather and greens that were perfectly prepared for this event, the stage was set for a smorgasboard of great bowling displays from all divisions.

With sides contesting all seven divisions, it was extremely pleasing to see that four of the Tweed Byron’s contingent have succeeded in securing a berth for a tilt at the State titles that commence 9 August.  Players especially appreciated their cheer squads and spectators alike, who also added to the excitement of this competition with their enthusiastic support.

The 2014 challenge for Zone One supremacy in Division 1 was between the Kingsclifff and Ballina sides once again.  Kingscliff got away to an early lead and holding that position throughout the game, were able to collect the spoils of their hard work.   Congratulations lads on a well played game.

Division 2 side, Cabarita Beach, faced off against East Lismore.  Getting off to a good start, they continued on for a very comfortable victory over their opposition.  Well done, Cabba boys.

In the Division 3 Play-Offs, Ocean Shores lads put on a great show of competence and super bowling in defeating both Yaamba and Ballina sides quite comfortably to take the Zone One honours,  Congratulations fellas, well done.

Division 4 reps, Pottsville, scoring 39 shots, were unlucky to go down to Iluka (55 shots) in a really tough game.

The Kingscliff side contesting Grade 5 took command from the first end to the last, scoring 78 shots to Grafton’s 57 in a really great game.  Well done lads.

Ballina RSL made life difficiult for the Cabarita side during the Division 6 Play-off taking the game 71 to 56 as did Lismore Heights Workers in the Division 7 contest against Cabarita.  Great effort from the Cabba guys.

Zone One President, Kevin Soward, would like to thank Brunswick Heads, Cabarita Beach, Pottsville and Mullumbimby clubs, hosts for this prestigious event.

*** DIARY DATES:  Zone Championships for all grades will be conducted Sunday 6 July at Evans Head in the Norther Rivers District.  Best wishes go to all our Tweed Byron Champions for good bowling at this event. Saturday 12 July – Bangalow B.C. Open Fours.  Tuesday 15 July – Condong Mixed Pairs. Saturday 19 July – Cudgen “Hornets 1000” Mens triples.


With this year’s Pennant season well and truly finalised for the Tweed Byron bowlers, Clubs have been busy with their open Singles Competitions.  Brunswick Heads’ Judy Wright was back on the winners dais again this year after defeating Darilyn Guest in a hard fought game.  Congratulation Judy on your back to back win together with Runner-up Darilyn on a well played game.

Mother Nature turned on some really cold windy conditions at Condong B.C. for this year’s Open Singles finalists to contend with. Nevertheless, Becky Attard and Joan Lawson were both able to produce great bowling displays in this nail biter game.

Coming into the last end on even scores with Joan holding shot, Becky, with her last bowl, picked up the jack and trailed it through to win the game and championship title.  Congratulations to both ladies on a wonderful game.

Ocean Shores President, Judy Williams, has certainly had a good week.  After winning the Open Singles battle against Karen Gallard, Judy also collected thee Lucky Rink prize for the day.  Way to go, Judy.

*** Diary Dates:  July 14 – Chinogan Fours at Mullumbimby. Always a great comp to enter. July 21 – District Inaugural

Versatile 6s to be conducted at Cabarita Beach B.C. with entries closing July 14 should prove to be a super event to be involved in.  District President, Betty Croft, looks forward to seeing a big roll up for this tournament.
