Tweed Byron District Bowling Association


Cabarita’s inaugural $1000 Ladies Pairs sponsored by Solo Waste Management, the only Women’s Pairs competition in the district, was, most certainly, a huge success. The greens were filled to capacity with contestants coming from Mermaid Beach in the North down to Ballina and Casino in the South. Prize money was spread over seven placings with Laurel Poole (Kingsclifff) and Barbara Gates (Tugun) collecting the overall winners purse.  This tournament will now be a yearly event on the bowls calender that is really worth competing in. Well done Cabarita Beach W.B.C.     

Two bowl triples seem to attract full greens of contenders. Kingscliff W.B.C. recently conducted a tournament with 28 teams vying for the big prize money. Brunswick Heads ladies, Bev Gawned, Jenny Meinel and Pauline Brining, scooped the pool taking home the overall winners reward. Congrats, girls.

Ocean Shores Mixed Pairs final was a game not be have been missed. Johnnie Busch and partner, Ray Tonkin, were down 17-0 coming into the seventh end. However, a valiant fight back saw them catch up and break even in this contest against Stuart Pratt and Lyn McGowran and it was Game On! In a nail biter to the finish line, Johnnie and Ray were able to nose in front and take out the title. Congrats to all players on a super game.

Brunswick Heads have been busy finalising their championships with Christine Lawrance winning the Consistency Singles and Kery Dexter taking out the minor singles. The minor pairs was a very evenly matched game which ended up needing an extra end to determine the winners – Bev Gawned and Jenny Meinel. Well done, ladies.

While most clubs have now gone into recess until early January, there are still many bowling activities around the district for keen bowers to participate in to keep themselves up to speed.

With the District orientated events coming to an end for the year the final competition, the Inter Region games between Region One and Region Two, was conducted at Maclean B.C. last week. The four districts in each region selected two teams of four players for the contest. Tweed Byron District teams selected, Jenny Lofts, Pauline Brining, Judy Wright, Bev Rose (S) (all from Brunswick Heads) and Jan Appleton (Pottsville), Maryann Sweetnam (Condong), Darilyn Guest (Brunswick Heads), Doreen Buckley (S) (Pottsville) joined the Region One contingent. Rose’s team scored two convincing wins while Buckley’s team came in with one win in the format of three games to contribute 3 points towards the overall final figures of 16.5  points to seal Regions One’s win. Region Two scored 7.5 points. Well done, ladies.

Brunswick Heads annual 2 bowl triples attracted three full greens of competitors with 32 teams from near and far entered. Whilst a Casino team collected the overall winners prize, Tweed Byron girls, Faye Turner, Liz Fleming and June Wotherspoon (S) came in second and L. Earea, Judy Wright and Bev Rose (S) collected fifth prize.  Congrats, girls.
