With the scoreboard seemingly superglued on the initial scoring end of G Naoum P Johnston B Rose A Bartlett the team of M Nicholls J Canabou J McKay M Burke raced away to most convincingly taking the game 21 – 7 when the stumps were pulled.

Tweed Byron District Bowling Association


March 23

The Zone One “Compass Shield” conducted at Brunswick Heads between Northern Rivers East and West, Clarence River and Tweed Byron Districts certainly was a great event.  For the first time Tweed Byron conducted a serious selection of Over 60’s bowlers to contest the Shield and were well rewarded for their efforts.  The contingent of four teams performed extremely well with all players giving their best.

In Round One against N.R. East, the guys had a resounding win with a margin of +27.  Round Two against N.R. West was a tough encounter against a younger opposition who took the game quite comfortably.  However, the boys rallied in Round Three and defeated Clarence River with a narrow margin.  Congratulations to the Tweed Byron contingent who came in as Runners-up to Norther Rivers West who were overall winners on the day.

Meanwhile, clubs around the District have been busy finalising championships.  At Kingscliff Kevin Liddington and David Crompton contested the Club Championship Singles final.  After 15 ends Liddington had collected 30 shots to Crompton’s 21. Crompton then pinned Liddington down over the next four ends to reach 28 shots before Liddington prevailed to take the game at 31-28.  The Club Championship Pairs final, which saw Keith Dawson and Ian Taylor challenging Peter Banks and Jim Gibson for the top spot, was a great display of fine precision bowling from all contestants.  Taylor and Dawson had the upper hand throughout the game to come home winners once again.    At Mullumbimby, the final of their Club Championship Fours was won by N. Lee, A. McKenzie, S. Doherty and M. Holton in a great game against M. Nicholls, J. Canabou, J. McKay and M. Burke. Congrats to all winners.

All Girls Surfriders Club Lennox Head

March was our first contested All Girls competition thanks to cyclone Marcia wreaking havoc on our scheduled February round, it was fantastic to see everyone again and also wonderful to see many new faces!!

Welcome back to last years crew, stoked to have you all on board again and to all the new ‘All GIrls’, welcome, great to meet more girls that share our passion of the ocean, we look forward to getting to know you all better over the coming months and sharing many more waves together!

The competition was held at our local beach, Lennox Head and with offshore winds and small waves the conditions couldn’t have been better for a fantastic introduction to a day of fun with a great bunch of ‘All Girls’ girls.

The swell began to build a little in the afternoon making for some fun semi finals and finals.

Unfortunately following close behind that building swell was stormy skies that eventually hit us with avengence and unleashed some incredibly heavy rain upon us, making for some challenging judging, wet judging sheets, wet tents, wet girls, and eventually cancelling the end of the competition, the best place to be really was the ocean!

A big thanks to those who stuck around to help with the judging despite the conditions and also to those who helped with the pack up in the end.

The results from this month are –

Under 18’s: 1.Nyxie Ryan 2. Mahlia Carr 3.Megan Davenport 4. Skye Thomas

Under 13’s 1. Chloe Mason 2. Hannah Kelly 3. Asha Tancred 4. Mistie Mildenhall

Senior Beginners: 1. Kellie Nagel 2. Narelle Johnson 3. Megan Allen 4. Leslie Forsythe-Fisher

Over 35’s: 1. Prue Martinovich 2. Jenny Schirmer 3. Sophie Reynolds 4.Cory Whitney


The open and Longboard finals were unfortunately not surfed due to extremely heavy rain which allowed for poor or no visibility for our judges, the finalists of each division were as follows –

Opens Finalists : Karin Oschner, Jane Collins, Shona McIndoe, Sophie Shelton.

Longboards Finalists : Maz, Sally Petrie, Sarah Baker, Marg Bryant

*** If there are any girls who are still interested in joining our club, it is still not too late, check out our website on http://allgirlssurf.com/, you can download a member form and also an events calendar.

Look forward to seeing everyone in the water either before or at our next club round which will be held at Flatrock



The singles competition was won by Peter McKenzie, second Chris Strybos and third Mark Smith.  The doubles final saw Chris Strybos & Matt Ostello come back from 1-2 sets down to defeat Mark Smith & Sunny Gibb 3-2, with the final set finishing 16-14.

Two of our local players: Werner Borkhardt [Suffolk Park] and Col Gradwell [Lennox Head], have been selected to be the Australian over 70’s team to play in a test match against New Zealand at Easter.

*** All welcome, play is at the Mullumbimby Tennis Clubhouse, Byron Street Mullumbimby, Thursday evening 6.30pm start. Enquiries phone Mark 0409 473 517 or Chris 6684 1468.

Last mayoral candidates Q and A: are you a landlord?

Here at The Echo we have seen and heard the word ‘housing’ come up time and again throughout the local government election campaign period, whether it’s from candidates or other voters.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

What do the Tweed Council candidates stand for?

The final day of voting for your local Tweed Shire Councill candidates is Saturday 4 December at a venue near you.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
