The Mullumbimby Bowling Club was defeated by Kingscliff at the final of the District Fours played at Cudgen on last Sunday.

The team of Ross Graham, Ben Leeson, Mark Hogan, and Richie Northcott played great bowls to be just ahead after ten ends, against the fancied Kingscliff side.

Kingscliff edged away over the closing stages and were six shots ahead going into the final end. With Mullum holding five shots, the team was unable to snare the extra shot needed to force the match into extra time, before finally going down 24–16.

It was a great effort from the Mullum side containing two rookie bowlers.

The Autumn Corporate Bowls event commenced on Friday night. In Division A, Men of Steel are on 22; followed by In Line Carpentry 18.5; Mr Plug 18; Bruns Bums and Dunno 16; K.R.P 15; Ken Ryan Plastering 14; The Lifters 13.5; Ben Leeson Mechanical 12; and Country Fine Lads.
